ADVERTISERS AMPED UP FOR SUPER BOWL: Survey Finds Most Creative Professionals Would Relish Working on a Super Bowl Campaign

MENLO PARK, Calif., Jan. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Football fans aren't the only ones enthusiastic about the Super Bowl. Those in the creative community are, too, a new survey by The Creative Group shows. Nearly three-quarters (74 percent) of advertising executives and six in 10 (60 percent) corporate marketing executives said they would jump at the chance to work on such a high-profile campaign. About one in 10 executives admitted they would be overwhelmed by all the work.

The national survey was developed by The Creative Group, a specialized staffing service for interactive, design, marketing, advertising and public relations professionals, and conducted by an independent research firm.

Advertising and marketing executives were asked, "If given the opportunity to work on a Super Bowl advertising/marketing campaign, which of the following statements best describes how you would feel?" Their responses:

Advertising Executives

Marketing Executives

Thrilled to work on a such a high-profile campaign



Indifferent -- it's just another project



Nervous about the outcome



Overwhelmed by all the work involved



Don't know/no answer





*Responses do not total 100 percent due to rounding.

"Working on a high-profile project, such as a Super Bowl ad, brings with it great visibility and responsibility," said Donna Farrugia, executive director of The Creative Group. "Outstanding creative work can generate positive buzz for a brand, but an unpopular or ill-conceived campaign can affect a company's reputation, which adds pressure for the agency or marketing team."

Added Farrugia, "All creative professionals find themselves in high-stakes situations from time to time, whether it's working on an important project or under a tight deadline. Performing well under these circumstances takes focus, organization and steely resolve."

The Creative Group offers five tips for performing like a pro when the pressure is on:

  1. Prioritize, then strategize. Take a few moments to develop a game plan before diving headfirst into any project. By creating a playbook on the front end, you can sidestep potential hurdles.
  2. Don't procrastinate. Worrying about a task doesn't count as working on it. Rather than putting off your most pressing deadlines, tackle them. Getting these assignments out of the way first will lower your stress level and make your overall goal seem more manageable.
  3. Think on your feet. Adaptability is an invaluable skill. If priorities change, embrace the new challenge and demonstrate your ability to execute on the fly.
  4. Request more coverage. Some jobs simply can't be completed by one person, even if you are a star performer. If you're doing everything possible to meet your obligations and still see no end in sight, identify duties that can be delegated and ask for backup.
  5. Turn downtime into prep time. After high-intensity projects are completed, take time to decompress and document any lessons that were learned. If deadlines were at risk, what were the reasons? How could you or others have communicated team goals more effectively? Reflective thinking will help take the pressure off in the future and prepare you for the next big game.

About the Survey

The national study was developed by The Creative Group and conducted by an independent research firm. It is based on more than 500 telephone interviews -- approximately 375 with marketing executives randomly selected from companies with 100 or more employees and 125 with advertising executives randomly selected from agencies with 20 or more employees.
