Google spends $3.2 million on ads for the Pixel and Pixel XL in just two days
 

 
Google's bringing out the big guns with the Pixel and Pixel XL, reportedly spending some $3.2 million on television ads in just the first two days since the Nexus successors were announced. Official confirmation of these numbers has yet to come from the Mountain View-based tech giant, but media agencies are already foreseeing an aggressive ad campaign from the Big G in the months to come, likely in the vicinity of hundreds of millions of dollars.

The Pixel and Pixel XL are Google's first in-house developed smartphones and pit the search giant in a direct competition against Apple and Samsung as a hardware company. Considering this is the company's first major foray in consumer electronics, and given its vast pool of resources, a broad and aggressive ad campaign for its first truly “Google inside and out” smartphones, is to be expected.


Declining to talk about concrete numbers, Google's VP of Product Management, Mario Queiroz, told Reuters it may be a “very significant marketing campaign”, hinting at the possibility of Google buying ads during Thanksgiving football games. Ad spaces at such major sports events during a national holiday can go as high as a million dollars, claim marketing experts.

Verizon, which is the exclusive carrier for the Pixel and Pixel XL in the US, is also reportedly making significant investments in its own TV and digital ads for Google's two phones.

Given the recent Note 7 fiasco, Google may be in a favorable position to send the Pixels off to a flying start with one competitor less breathing down in its neck. The Pixel and Pixel XL are expected to launch on October 20th, Thursday, running Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box and packing a host of exclusive features, such as Google's new virtual a.ssistant and revamped camera app.

All the advertising in the world won't save you when your phone can't be bought on all 4 major carriers.

to start selling the Pixel phones next month.. wouldn't be the first time Google did an exclusivity period with a carrier



In the meantime the Pixel works on all carriers and can be bought with financing directly from Google

Majority of people buy their phones from carriers. Most people aren't getting online and applying for financing through Synchrony to get this sh*t. Unless you're an iPhone, your sales will be sh*t unless you're on all major carriers.

You must think verizon is a cupcake network and a supposed 2 week exclusivity period is a long time

Verizon is only one network, doesn't matter if it's cupcake or not. Google is missing out on millions of customers by being exclusive to one (or two) carriers. Dumb move for any company not named Apple.

Barely. Do you see how many people are saying they won't switch to a Pixel? That's not even mentioning the fact that most can't an easy swap to it. Looks like most folks are moving over to an iPhone or the edge. Google focked up by being on one carrier.

How said anything about Google's pockets hurting? Your dementia must be flaring up.

Yeah, I'm sure those blind test comparisons are going to have Stans salty... just like they were salty last year when the 6P continually lost its blind comparison tests.

Smart move. This is going to a be a process for this "Pixel" line to gain traction, but just means good things for us consumers in the long run with more options. I'm all for good competition
