Consumer Engagement In The Time Of COVID: Drive-Thru Experiences

Posted by Sarah Kistler on April 7, 2021 at 7:30 AM

Socially Distanced Experiential Events

What did you eat for lunch 5 days ago? How about...the names of all the people you spoke with today? Odds are you probably don't remember (but if you do, I'll have what you're having). In this digital COVID-run world, event marketers are having to work harder to create and offer memorable events for attendees. 

It's easy to get distracted when we are experiencing something on screen. We are able to distance ourselves or are pulled out of an environment we've immersed ourselves in on-screen. The result of this is that we aren't as engaged and living in the moment than if we were actually there in person. In this blog, Hollywood Branded discusses how brands are maintaining consumer engagement in fun and entertaining ways through drive-thru experiences during COVID.

How Brands Partner With Pop Culture To Create Licensed Products

Posted by Maya Dolan on March 31, 2021 at 8:38 AM

Taking Pop Culture Promos A Step Further

Licensing agreements are usually beneficial to everyone involved. The licensor (the owner of the intellectual property) gets paid royalties by the brand who wants to use their image, which can give them additional advertising and help save a lot of their promotional budget. Additionally, the brand (the licensee) benefits by gaining exposure from cobranded promotions and the attention of fans who may not have been previously interested in their products.

Both the licensor and the licensee help each other out and the fans get to enjoy all of the exciting, co-branded products! In this blog, Hollywood Branded examines the way brands have partnered with pop culture to create licensed products and lines.

You're also aware that this leads to last-minute solutions and their effect on your results.
