Promoting Diversity in Hollywood With Product Placement

Posted by Allie Duke on August 7, 2020 at 6:15 AM

How Inclusive Marketing Can Benefit Your Brand

Hollywood is changing and diversity is finally making its way into the business more prominently. With diversity issues being brought back to the forefront of political news, it is important for brands to know how to navigate this new marketing climate. Putting out advertising material in the wake of serious political events can cost a company its reputation. Brands need to continue to release marketing content while respecting social values. To do this effectively, they need to align themselves with the movements and show support.

One of the best ways to do this is to partner with shows and films that have diverse casts and crews. Product placement in television and movies is a great way to partner with productions and has proven to be a financial success for many brands. Additionally, promoting diversity on screen is beneficial to a company’s reputation and is essential to breaking down systematic oppression in the United States. But how can brands pull this off successfully if they’ve never done it before? In this blog, Hollywood Branded will dive into the history of diversity on screen and how your brand can benefit from partnering with diverse productions.

Where Does Product Placement Occur?

Why U.S. Brands Should Partner With Latinx Musicians

Posted by Gabriela Medina-Toledo on July 31, 2020 at 8:30 AM

Latin Music Has Surpassed Country Music In Popularity 

Generation Z, the youngest generation in the U.S., is becoming the most ethnically diverse generation and best educated generation yet. Whether it be pop, trap, or rap, Latin music is rising above and making appearances in the most popular U.S. music genres. Latin music has even become the 5th most popular music genre in the U.S., outshining country and EDM.

Partnering with Latinx celebrities isn’t just an aid to target your Latin consumers, but consumers of all backgrounds. Brands that aren’t capitalizing on the Latin Music movement are missing out on opportunities for larger viewership, higher engagement reach, and ultimately, a wider range of customers. In this blog, Hollywood Branded discusses the strength of, and why, brands should be proactively building partnership strategies with Latinx Musicians.

Case Study: Pride Partnerships on Instagram

Posted by Alex Ryan on July 29, 2020 at 8:00 AM

Brands Who Know How To Market To LGBTQ

Thousands of people line the streets of major U.S. cities in celebration for their fellow LGBTQ loved ones every June. Except this year, it looked a little different. Pride is a massive, month-long celebration each year that emphasizes, very publicly, the LGBTQ community. This year, the weight was put on influencers and brands to carry pride without the typical events this year as it shifted to a largely digital celebration due to COVID-19.

LGBTQ influencers have become huge role models for the younger generation in the struggle for equality and self acceptance. The fact that brands have the ability to now partner with these creators in a way that highlights their support is something that changes the way our culture views pride today. In this blog, Hollywood Branded will be looking into diversity within the LGBTQ community and the ways in which Pride was stayed alive through online brand partnerships.

Kylie’s Kreative Kontent: A Marketing Powerhouse

Posted by Brandon Pike on July 28, 2020 at 6:15 AM

Do You "Keep Up?"

We all know who the Kardashians are. They are not only a name, but a brand, that has been drilled into our heads from their reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, as well as through controversies, business ventures, and of course, their social media endeavors.

To some people, the powerful Kardashian and Jenner brands stem from a leaked video in 2007 of Kim, and her then-boyfriend, Ray J. And that’s it. There is nothing more. However, I think that the Kardashians are more than just social media and television personalities. They are smart, creative, like-minded, and professional individuals that know how to leverage themselves among other people and create a brand for their name, but also the companies that they endorse and the ones that they found.

Even though all of the sisters have had major success in their industries, one sister stands out among the rest. Kylie Jenner, at just 22-years-old, has created an empire that goes way beyond her celebrity status. In this blog, Hollywood Branded discusses how Kylie Jenner is able to keep herself, along with her company, trending with her unique and creative marketing strategies.
