The Netflix Effect

Posted by Tory Noble on November 30, 2021 at 8:30 AM

What It Is And Why It Works

There are various contexts in which the term "The Netflix Effect" has been used recently; how streaming services are affecting children's brains, the television binge-watching phenomenon, or even tying the streaming service to an overall lack of motivation or activity. However, when it comes to pop culture and entertainment marketing, there is a far more intriguing definition. The Netflix Effect refers to a surge in popularity as it relates to certain products, brands, and even celebrities because of their feature in Netflix television shows and movies.

In this blog, Hollywood Branded discusses The Netflix Effect, what it is, and why it is so effective.

The Future Of Product Placement And Brand Integration

Posted by Lidia Marusic on November 24, 2021 at 8:30 AM

Streaming Services Are Shaping Modern Advertising

Will the TV commercial as we know it be extinct in a matter of years or maybe even months? Streaming platforms have seen tremendous growth over the past few years, and this trend certainly won’t stop soon. These subscription-based services allow viewers to watch programming uninterrupted for a fee, leaving many companies out of luck for traditional commercial break exposure. Luckily, brands can still be a part of the viewing experience through product placement and brand integration.

While these concepts aren’t new to the entertainment marketing world, the methods in which product placement and integration take place have certainly changed. The rise of high-tech data collection, content personalization, and artificial intelligence are reshaping the possibilities for brands to advertise within programming. In this blog, Hollywood Branded explores the rise of streaming platforms and what companies can do to better advertise their products or services with the help of high-tech innovations in product placement and brand integration.
