Super Bowl 50 Advertisers: These Brands Are Ready To Play The Commercial Game

super-bowl-2016-1920
On February 7, two NFL teams will take the field to battle it out on the most-watched sports night of the year, but marketers know where the real competition is happening: the Super Bowl Ads!

Super Bowl is a whole lot more than football, it is the ultimate advertising arena. This year, a select number of brands are spending upwards of $5 million to reserve their spot during the game – making a play to win the minds and hearts (and laughs) of the biggest ad audience available.

To prepare for game day, Marketing Land is keeping its own scorecard of which brands are competing and what they’re planning for game day.

We’ll continue to update this list as more information is made available from the advertisers and more ads are released.

Also, be sure to check out our 2016 HashtagBowl where we track pre-game and post-game social media visibility for this year’s Super Bowl TV commercials: Game On: The 2016 Marketing Land #HashtagBowl Is Coming Soon.

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Outside of ads and excepting a recent test with some retailers, Instagram didn’t offer much help to companies looking to use it to drive traffic. So they had to find workarounds. They put links in their Instagram bios. They scrawled short-code URLs onto their pictures. And they typed out links in their captions.Then last month Instagram finally introduced an official alternative to these hacky workarounds: the ability for verified profiles to insert links in their Instagram Stories.Almost a month after the launch, 15% to 25% of the people who see a link in an Instagram Story are swiping on it, according to a handful of brands and publishers that h…
