A Look At Hollywood Branded In The Media (Q3 2019)


Table Of Contents


A Quarter Of PR For Our Agency July, August + September

2019 was a phenomenal year of press for Hollywood Branded, where I had the pleasure of speaking with over a dozen media outlets in the third quarter about all things pop culture.  As an agency, we (of course) love free publicity. But it is more than that. We love helping educate people on the ins and outs, the overall best practices, and the mistakes to avoid along the way to create awesome pop culture marketing strategies. 

That way, whether the brand marketer works with our team, another agency or does it in-house, we are able to help provide some guidance and make sure success is found. Our world is not the easiest marketing strategy to successfully pull off, but we also know leveraging pop culture as a marketing tool is one of the best ways you can differentiate your brand, stand out and ultimately that required mecca - drive sales. In this blog, Hollywood Branded shares top product placement, celebrity and influencer media interviews in Q3 2019 including Bloomberg, Business Insider, CBS News, Fast Company, Hollywood Reporter, InStyle, LA Times, Marketing Dive, MarketWatch and Vox.  Let's take a walk down memory lane...
