It's been a little over a month since the biggest game of the year in the NFL. It's not just the biggest day of the year for football, it's also the biggest day of the year for marketers and advertisers alike. We've all heard the stories, gossip and rumors that TV is dead and that social media runs the marketing world. We're firm believers that social media is the future of marketing and sales but also wanted to challenge these assumptions to see how a fully integrated world worked.
We recognize that the world we live in is a world where users have multiple devices. We're creatures who embrace multi-screens and consume a variety of different forms of entertainment and engagement at a time. As you read this, you're probably reading it on either a laptop or tablet and have a cell phone device either next to you or in your pocket. In fact, you might even have a television screen in the same room as streaming the latest drama on Netflix or an inspiration TedTalk on Youtube.
The Super Bowl is one of the biggest sporting events of the year. Marketers spend millions and millions of dollars in both their production costs and media buys just to have their message placed in front of the millions of people who tune in for the big game. As we found in our recent report on the Super Bowl, a lot of people in the market for a new car actually tune in for the Super Bowl. Our study showed that 24.9% of the people who have sent tweets indicating that they want a car are actually in the same audience that will tune in for the big game. From this insight, we thought we'd dive a bit deeper to understand the role that these ads play in the automotive industry and how they impact consumers awareness of their products and their actual purchase intent.
