    Our Survey Confirms Entertainment Marketing Increases Consumer Sales

    Why We Decided To Create A Monster Of A Survey

    When we speak with new clients, the first thing they ask us is for proof that entertainment marketing works, and for us to share any analytics on the business model.  It's a tough question to respond to, as we do know from experience that it works, but it's often harder to prove. In short, the entertainment media influence on consumer purchases is huge.

    But now, thanks to our survey, we have an endless amount of data to share!

    Brand Partnerships, Studios and Awards Season: Why Brands Should Care

    Posted by Stacy Jones on January 12, 2015 at 9:37 AM

    Why Brands Should Care About Films Winning In Awards Season:

    We came across a great blog by Stephen Follows about how much it costs a studio for a Hollywood Oscar campaign. The blog includes in-depth discussion on all the steps a studio takes to shoot for a win, and who the parties are who make the key decisions.    

    As our agency specializes in creating brand partnerships with these studios, and production companies, we’ve borrowed (again with a big thumbs up to Stephen's stat-rich blog) the bullet points in the article, and added in the reasoning as to why a BRAND should care about the studio’s campaign to gear up for Oscar night, and all the rest of award season.

    Creating An Integrated Media and Entertainment Marketing Plan

    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.
