6 Powerful NFL Advertising & Social Media Statistics To Know

The NFL is an advertising and promotional powerhouse. Ten years ago, that would’ve meant that it dominated television ad revenue, which is still true today, but in the promotional landscape of 2017, being a bonafide heavy-hitter means having a commanding presence on social media, too.

For years, the Super Bowl has earned the highest TV advertising revenues of any major sports event. This isn’t surprising—the Super Bowl routinely attracts over 100 million viewers. But TV viewership is on the decline, and digital ad spend is predicted to surpass TV ad spend for the first time this year.

Facebook’s Branded Content Tool Is A Must-Use For Brands

Branded content utilizes content as a way to promote or advertise for a brand. Branded content can represent a variety of marketing materials ranging from white papers, online YouTube videos, blog posts, and Instagram photos. Today, branded content is everywhere. The rise of social media and influencer marketing has made it impossible for brands to avoid branded content. Moreover, the recent FTC crackdown on branded content has revealed many related consumer issues such as transparency.

Increased attention to branded content has led brands and advertising platforms, especially social media websites, to be more cognizant of ethical consumer advertising practices, especially in influencer marketing. Specifically, brands and their partners need to include proper disclosure techniques. Facebook, in particular, has revamped its website and advertising tools for brands and their partners to give marketers a tool for their branded content.
