With a $4.5 million price tag for 30 seconds of airtime during the game, smart content planning counts.
Superbowl ad campaigns were always a big, expensive deal, but now that digital marketing is playing a bigger role, the stakes are higher than ever. With a 30-second spot costing $4.5 million this year, advertisers want to get more bang for their buck by creating pre-game buzz online, and keeping the momentum going after the fourth ;quarter clock runs out.

Introduction
I honed my “old school” reporting skills while earning her Master of Arts in Journalism and Mass Communications from New York University. From there, I went on to become a print magazine editor, juggling heds and decks, pull quotes and sidebars. Along the way, I added social media savvy, SEO expertise, and blogging know-how to the mix.

In short, I create all kinds of content with publishing credits including Family Circle, Parents, WomansDay.com, Parenting, CreditCards.com, BankRate.com, American Baby, Amex OPENForum, NewsCred, The Content Strategist, and many more. I also ghostwrite for a number of corporate clients and brands.

Other to-knows? I'm:

  • a staunch supporter of the Oxford comma
  • a member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors (ASJA)
  • and a happily married mom of two boys
Bragging rights
Some people read the stuff that I write; my boys are awesome; I like to punch and kick things (mostly for fitness reasons)
