    How To #29: How Much Does Product Placement Cost

    Posted by Stacy Jones on November 5, 2018 at 10:50 AM

    The Most Asked Question Of Our Agency - How Much To Budget

    The one question our agency can count on to hear at least once a day from a brand inquiry is... so how much does it cost.  And quite frankly, that's a hard question to give an instant answer to. It is not like there is a schedule out there even similar to a network's media rate card that defines cost A, B or C.  And there are so many variables that have to be considered that it makes each brand's inquiry completely unique.

    And there is no way to compare apples to oranges as far as content partnerships go - because each is unique in its content creator team, distributor limitations, cast allowances and of course, storyline.  But I'm willing to give it a shot! In this blog, Hollywood Branded shares some generalizations on how much product placement costs - from single one offs to comprehensive programs.

    Billions Spent On Music Festivals By Brands

    While music festivals have been around for decades, it’s no secret that the popularity of events like Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Bonnarroo has exploded.

    Mistake #24: Not Realizing The Importance of A Public Relation Plan For Your Brand

    Posted by Stacy Jones on October 22, 2018 at 11:53 AM

    Why We Believe PR Is Important As A Marketing Agency

    Entertainment marketing has strong crossover to public relations campaigns, but remains a niche specialty practice. In many cases, securing a placement, integration, or partnership can only reach its maximum potential if paired with a sound PR strategy.  There are countless times when we have activated a campaign that we've then built a PR program to support it.  

    Why? Well if you have something on screen, you need to start bringing it to as many other places as possible.  It brings the campaign to life outside of the confines of what a producer is willing to showcase on air, and it allows the campaign to have a longer shelf life. In this blog, Hollywood Branded discusses the importance of public relations for your brand either to support other initiatives or as a stand alone plan.
