In most homes tomorrow, the TV will be on for the Super Bowl. But a percentage of the game's 100 million viewers are tuning in because they're as curious about seeing the clever commercials as they are about the outcome of the game. This year, however, they don't even have to wait until Sunday because a lot of companies are previewing their commercials online. Steve Caler, owner of Caler & Company, says that this is a wise move, because the advertisers are fostering more engagement with the viewers. For instance, Budwieiser is encouraging views to log in and vote on the name for the newborn Clydesdale foal. Steve writes about Super Bowl advertising in his blog on Caler.com. Calor & Company, which specializes in communications, marketing, design and public relations, is located in the historic North Hill area at 66 E. Cuyahoga Falls Ave. in Akron. His number is 330.535.8053.
