Was Maserati's Super Bowl Ad worth the Money?
Feb 12, 2014 - 10:40 AM - by Salizar
All-in-all Maserati probably spent over $16 million on advertising the week of the Super Bowl. This includes $11 million for the spot, plus production, and digital and search advertising. Take a look at the spot again here.


Nine seconds of this 90-second spot shows a car visual or sound, and only the last 3 seconds of the commercial reveal what the brand being advertised is. Is this a wise way to spend money for a brand that is hoping to sell to a relatively small amount of customers?Is making people aware of a brand that they are unlikely to ever buy really worth all that money? I mean more people know the Ferrari brand, but Mitsubishi still sells more cars.

Paying for the most expensive spot with the highest production values, in the most competitive automotive media event, doesn't strike me as what a challenger brand -- which it claims to be in the ad -- should do. Kudos for Maserati's boldness, but its money could have been spent a lot more imaginatively and responsibly.
Ultimately it comes down to whether Maserati will see a return in sales from the amount of money it invested into its first ever Super Bowl ad. While I'm sure that there are a number of people who will actually follow through and buy a Maserati Ghibli all because their attention was grabbed by the Ghibli Super Bowl ad, most of what Maserati achieved was convincing people that a car they can't afford is nice.

I wonder where else Maserati could have spent those hard earned dollars (and by hard earned I mean taken from Chrysler's coffers now that they are part of the same happy family.)
