Tracking the virality of Super Bowl commercials with iSpot.tv

logo-ispot-lrAt the beginning of January we wrote about new technology from iSpot.tv that makes it easier for media buyers, brands, and agencies to correlate digital activity to linear TV advertising spend. The technology enables these stakeholders to measure the social impact of ads airing at a particular time and on a particular network.

It is all about football on Super Bowl Sunday, but February 2 is also the ‘Super Bowl of advertising.’ Capitalizing on this, iSpot.tv has created a Super Bowl Data Center, which allows consumers to watch the top commercials and pre-releases. The Data Center also ranks the commercials according to its ‘SpotShare,’ which is determined based on a commercial’s online views and social actions taken. Leading the way so far is Axe’s ‘Make Love, Not War’ commercial, which has a 21.92% SpotShare (3.4 million online views and 81,460 social actions to date).

iSpot.TV has also released an advertiser pre-rankings list based on their linear ads for the past six months. Going into the Super Bowl Kia, Beats Audio, and Paramount Pictures are the favorites.
