    Highest Paid YouTube Stars

    Posted by Luis Vargas on September 19, 2018 at 8:08 AM

    They Make How Much For Doing That?

    Ever since YouTube hit the internet scene in 2005 it’s been doing remarkable, unimaginable things for pop culture and social media alike. Many would even say that it helped play the biggest part in giving rise to the social media influencers we know very well today. But what you probably didn’t know is that some of the most viewed personalities on YouTube live some of the most lucrative lives in the digital media landscape.

    Young adults in their early to late 20’s and even young adolescents in their teens and tweens have all jumped at the opportunity to get their piece of the YouTube pie. And if you were wondering what kind of money these individuals are making it’s not just in the thousands or hundreds of thousands -- but in the MILLIONS! With that kind of earning potential it’s a mystery to me why I don’t pick up the closest camera next to me and start vlogging myself! In this blog, Hollywood Branded talks about the current top 10 highest paid YouTube stars, and shares more information on how brands can get involved with social influencers.

    5 Reasons Why Celebrity Controversy Doesn't Always Damage The Brand

    Posted by Luis Vargas on June 26, 2018 at 1:11 PM

    How To Spin The Negative Into A Positive When Things Go Awry

    There has been a major shift in the last decade where words and sentiments that would have previously been safeguarded and never spoken to media outlets are now shared freely.  Technology is to thank for that, as social media allows one's instant thoughts to be broadcast around the world in less time than it takes to type out that opinion and use social media as a loudspeaker.  Which for most of us is not a giant concern, as there are not so many watching our social stream like a hawk.  And people feel protected to say what they feel behind the near anonymity of social media.

    But for brands, celebrities and those larger than life influencers, it's a whole new world where being vocal about one's beliefs can cause the absolute perfect storm of a PR nightmare.  And how one deals' with the aftermath is what controls the consequences that are felt, which are surprisingly often not overly damaging.  In this blog, Hollywood Branded discusses five of the reasons why celebrity controversy is not always damaging to their brand, or those associated with it.
