Women's Representation In Advertisements Can Impact A Brand
A Super Bowl commercial can arguably be the most powerful 30 seconds a brand can get in advertising, because for once everyone wants to watch. With millions tuning in and plenty of press coverage, these 30 seconds are a brand's chance to define an image for themselves and tell America why they should like them.
Choosing what to show in your commercial will represent your brand and will tell people what is important to the brand on a larger scheme; this can be anything from loyalty to equality to even humor. When it comes to female representation, it has become a topic of high importance for the success of a brand - after all, most consumer bases are made up of mostly females. In this blog, Hollywood Branded explores the Super Bowl's representation of women during Super Bowl LIII commericals, and what it meant for the brands.

In fact, Nike has been investing in cause marketing since the 1980s, with consistently positive results for the brand. Clearly the shoe brand has been onto something that other brands like Gillette, whose ad campaign against toxic masculinity caused equal controversy, are just now beginning to implement. In this blog post, Hollywood Branded examines how to amplify your brand through cause marketing from the expertise of Signify's Kristi Porter.
Why 007 Has Been The King Of Product Placement Through The Decades
Ever since Sean Connery stepped into Ian Fleming’s world of secret missions and intrigue as 007 agent James Bond in Dr. No (1962), product placement in Bond films has been a mainstay in the franchise. Of course, it didn’t start there. The James Bond novels themselves were bursting at the seams with brands: Gordon’s Gin, Bentley, and Moreland Cigarettes, just to name a few.
One thing is true though - James Bond would not exist as he does today without product placement. In this blog, Hollywood Branded takes a look at James Bond product placement over the years and each product featured in the 25 Bond films.
