Inspiration from Super Bowl Commercials

The cost of a 30-second commercial in this Super Bowl is a record high: $7 million. That breaks down to $233,333 a second.

I’ll be watching them closely this Sunday. Are companies using their 30 seconds wisely? Is there a payoff?

Here are six ways to ensure your message resonates—be it in a TV commercial, in the CEO’s office or in an elevator pitch.

  1. Summarize your key message in a single sentence. If you can’t distill it into one sentence, your audience won’t have a chance. Begin with this statement in mind.
  2. Express it with a snappy verb. The verb is the engine of a sentence. If it pops, your entire statement will. This doesn’t mean you should choose a stiff, clunky verb plucked from a resume. (Think: “implement.”) But it should have a little muscle. Consider a verb such as: lead, change, reach, empower or equip. A vivid verb like imagine, dream or believe can also elevate your message.
  3. Match your emotion to your message. If your countenance doesn’t back up your message, you’ll lose us. Show us how you feel. Your face and voice should match your message.
  4. Tell a story. We’ll forget generalized statements and in-the-weeds data. We’ll remember a story. Share an anecdote that brings your message to life.
  5. Repeat your message. Make it impossible to forget it. Tell us your key point at the beginning, repeat it in the middle, remind us at the end.
