The Most Popular Entertainment Marketing Tactics

Hollywood Branded Inc. conducted a survey exploring the best entertainment marketing strategies used by brands and agencies, and how receptive consumers are to these strategies

One section of the survey identified the most popular marketing tactics used by brands and agencies.  The choices provided included Product Placement, Brand Integration, Co-Branded Entertainment Promotions (where the brand uses their retail packaging/point of sale or their media buys to also advertise the entertainment content), Event Sponsorships and Celebrity Endorsements or Seeding.  The overwhelming results reported were Product Placement and Event Sponsorship. 

Agencies on the other hand tended to be more likely to create Brand Integration plans - likely due to the fact that this practice is closely tied to leveraged media buy plans.  Higher dollar activations are also more desirable by those collecting percentages of budget spend, which may be a key driver for some agencies.
