Sponsored Events And Viewing Parties

Last awards season, PassionRoses and Hollywood Branded teamed up with the Costume Designers Guild Awards in Hollywood to decorate and attend the ceremony. On top of getting great coverage, many big-name designers in Hollywood were exposed to the brand and its product.

And while only a select few get to actually attend the awards ceremonies, that doesn't mean your brand can't sponsor or partner with a viewing party. Last year, Hollywood Branded and PassionRoses also decorated the Producer's Guild of America Oscars Viewing Party.

There are so many different ways, big and small, for your brand to get involved with sponsoring events and viewing parties - these are just a two examples that don't cost tens of thousands!


Celebrity Gift Bags

Getting your brand into a celebrity gift bag is one of the best ways to guarantee stars getting their hands of your product - and also one of the easiest. 

With gift bags, there are different tiers with different pricing attached. Every category of brand can get involved on a level that matches their price tag, from cosmetics to electronics, even to restaurants or tourist spots.

Capitalizing On Past Assets

One of the biggest misconceptions of product placement is that the benefits end after the placement is over. Which couldn't be more wrong! If your brand was featured in a television show or movie that is now up for an awards, you have a unique and wonderful opportunity to amplify your product placement success again.

For example, Hollywood Branded worked with BlackBerry and Mozart In The Jungle to place their product throughout the series. When television awards shows rolled around, the TV show got several nominations and ended up winning 2 Golden Globes.

BlackBerry used this opportunity to amplify their product placement in the show through blogging and social media campaigns across Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
