    Did The Brand Pay For The Celebrity To Hold That?

    Posted by Stacy Jones on April 12, 2018 at 4:20 PM


    Is It An Ad... Or Do They Just Really Like That Brand?

    There are many times when real life and fiction cross over one another into the blurred lines of advertising.  And this is even more so in the world of celebrity endorsements, when a brand may partner with a celebrity to endeavor to make that partnership look oh-so-very real.

    Why? Because authenticity is key.  When a celebrity's fan base gets a whiff of a brand deal that is not authentic and natural, they can turn away.  And that makes brands go to a lot of efforts to make sure their celebrity partnership deals feel real, and which has lead to 'stealth advertising."  In this blog, Hollywood Branded discusses how brands use celebrities for stealth advertising endorsements of their products.

    Change Your Apartment. Change The World

    In the last year or so, a hotel brand has managed to harness the power of celebrity endorsements to bring to life an advertising campaign that is relateable to their targeted consumer.  And it's well done branded content that has allowed both Hilton's booking app and their mid level hotel chain, Hilton Garden Inn to stand out from competitors.

    How To Market Your Brand To The Baby Boomer Generation

    Posted by Stacy Jones on April 9, 2018 at 9:01 AM

    Post World War 2 Babies

    Baby boomers were born during the post World War II baby boom, between the years 1946 and 1964. This includes people who are now between 54 and 72 years old in 2016.  This generation is an entirely different one to market to than any other - being more conservative and with hard lined opinions ingrained on their decades of experience in life.

    This generation is not shy to tell you their opinion, research (to death) what they may be purchasing and is certainly more tech savvy than they are given credit by their children for being. In this blog, Hollywood Branded takes a deeper look at how to market your brand to the Baby Boomer generation, and the actors and musicians they favor.

    Cannabis and Product Placement Content Partnerships

    Posted by Stacy Jones on April 5, 2018 at 4:20 PM

    The Mecca Of Regulation Free Advertising

    If you are a cannabis brand, it's hard to get the word out about your product line in a meaningful way where you control the messaging.  Many states refuse to allow cannabis brands to buy TV, print or digital media.  And Facebook, Twitter and Instagram have put in major restrictions limiting the ability for cannabis brands to target individuals and pay for ads.

    Yet cannabis is one of the fastest growing markets, and in order to survive, cannabis brands have to find a way to stand out and gain awareness.  And if you are told you can't advertise, that's a pretty hard situation to be in.  Yet there is way - a very great way - for these brands to grab consumers attention.  How? By becoming part of other people's content, specifically through Product Placement.  In this blog, Hollywood Branded is going to discuss how cannabis brands have used Product Placement to partner with television, film and music content over the years, and share our infographic on cannabis product placement.
