    A Scarily Good Opportunity For Brand Sales

    Serial killers, bloody crime scenes, supernatural villains, and other typical components of a scary movie can be frightening, but the idea of having your brand appear as product placement in horror movies doesn’t have to be. And in fact, brands see measureable sales success from horror content partnerships.

    While many brands immediately reject the idea of such partnerships, some of the largest brands have realized the benefits, and create comprehensive campaigns to support their product placement exposures. In this blog, Hollywood Branded discusses the FALSE premise that the negative feelings a viewer experiences while being scared will be transferred to the participating brand - as research proves this is simply not the case.  And that high engagement actually occurs.

    Celebrity Influencers: Celebrities Don't Write Their Own Social Media Posts

    Posted by Stacy Jones on October 3, 2018 at 1:26 PM

    Did They Actually Like My Pic!?

    So you tagged your favorite celebrity on Instagram and THEY LIKED IT! But did they really? Take another look at that.  Celebrities are busy jet setting from meeting to meeting and schmoozing with their other famous friends.  Or actually working.  In fact... there is something many fans and brands don't realize.  Most celebrities don't write their own social media posts.  That includes those carefully orchestrated fee based brand posts.  

    In reality, most celebrities outsource to agencies and managers to assist them in what can be a full time job. In this blog, Hollywood Branded takes a look at celebrity influencers and the heartbreaking reality to some that celebrities don't write their own social media posts.

    Why Organic Product Placement Increases Brand Sales

    Posted by Stacy Jones on October 1, 2018 at 9:13 AM

    Why Is Organic Product Placement Better?

    Our team loves data, research and stats - and when we can't find answers to questions our clients and potential clients ask, we'll take it to the next level and run a survey ourselves.  One of the questions we are asked the most about is what case studies we have - literal proof is in the pudding that product placement works.

    And one of the survey factoids that has continuously been brought to light is that the majority of consumers far prefer branded content to more traditional forms of advertising.  That's not to say that all ads are not good advertising tools - but ads that haven't been crafted to be stories to themselves aren't typically as well received as product placement organically embedded into the content that viewers enjoy.  Basically, people aren't that interested in being clunked over the head by brands trying to shout their messaging from the roof tops.  Imagine that.  In our blog, Hollywood Branded shares our infographic on organic product placement, stats from our product placement survey, and provides detail to the types of product placement available for brand partnerships.
