Oreo Dips into Digital Marketing with Super Bowl Ad

Oreo Cookie

Last night, the Baltimore Ravens won the Super Bowl in a fashion we’ve never seen before. There were several records shattered, including a 34 minute power-outage which left half of the Superdome in the shadows of the NFL’s biggest stars. While fans in the Superdome stewed in confusion, over 111 million people at home prepared for an onslaught of commercials, which was actually filled by blabbing commentary.

The ad encouraged viewers to follow Oreo on Instagram, one of the few ads from the game that included a very clear Call To Action (CTA) that urged viewers to use their smartphone or tablet to engage with the brand online.

3 Reasons Why Search Engines Help Sell Your Product

key in box


What do y’all know about branded vs. non-branded search? How about the 80/20 rule? Turns out that non-branded search accounts for 78 percent of all search engine referrals, according to “the Goog” -or- Google. So, what does this mean? The theory is that a well-optimized site should attract 80 percent of non-branded referrals, and only 20 percent of branded search referrals. For instance, a meta title like “St. Louis financial advisors” should bring in 80% more traffic than a meta title like “Plaza Advisory Group”, which is a financial advisor firm in STL.

Most brands find it easier to dominate for the name of their company, service, or product; they are ignorant to the landscape of search marketing and SEO. People don’t search for brand names when they’re researching, comparing, or looking to buy a product. They search for what they need: furnace repair -OR- flower delivery -OR- physical therapy. Let’s step into the first reason.

The View of Search Marketing from 1000ft. Above


The influences and characteristics of a SMB (small/mid-sized business) envelops management skills, strong team building abilities, and leadership. It’s proven that without these, you wouldn’t be successful. It’s seldom you hear someone say, “I don’t know, Bob, you really don’t know much about marketing. How do you expect to build a business?” Marketing isn’t mandatory for success, but it does play a huge role in acquiring new business and increasing sales. 

The majority of marketing efforts are an experiment. There’s no way of knowing if you will get the return on investment you desire, especially if you’re pushing the message down the throats of your customers. Thankfully, marketing has changed immensely with the help of the Internet. Things have become much more inbound, meaning that the majority of new leads come from customers who are actively looking for the product and service you’re selling. Enter the search engine.
