The Question Asked By Brands & Agencies Alike
75% of brands use influencer marketing. For brands starting to delve into the world of social influencer marketing, there are a lot of unknowns.

Entertainment Content Has Long Been Considered A Major Sales Tool
Making Sales Happen With Talk Shows
National - and local - talk and entertainment news programs offer one of the fastest, most affordable and engaging platforms to reach and influence the (largely) female TV viewer and primary household buyer decision maker. Brands obtain major cache from the implied celebrity endorsement from the show's hosts, and the impact of consumer engagement can be easily tracked by rises in web traffic and online searches and even sales.
However, neglecting to plan the talk show activation can jeopardize the potential benefits and cause home viewers to tune out instead of tuning in and purchasing. In this blog, Hollywood Branded provides nine steps to activating a talk show integration to guarantee website traffic increase, celebrity endorsement perception and sales success!

One thing is true though - James Bond would not exist as he does today without product placement. In this blog, Hollywood Branded takes a look at James Bond product placement over the years and each product featured in the 25 Bond films.
