    How To #19: 6 Ways Scary Content Increases Sales

    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.

    Top Brand Partnerships With Sony's Venom

    Posted by Jessica Moore on October 12, 2018 at 2:57 PM


    It's Good To Be Bad... Or At Least Morally Ambiguous

    With the age of the anti-hero slowly making a rise, an ambitious journalist, a symbiote, and adventurous brands heed the call to bring some of the best partnerships the super world has ever seen. After tremendous success with previous films such as Suicide SquadDeadpool, and more recently Deadpool 2 which grossed $734,239,628 at the worldwide box-office, there is a definite market for these less morally righteous characters, and thus, a marketing opportunity that promises creativity and out of the box thinking.

    With box office action films always a brand integration favorite, it's not always just about what is in the film - but how brands leverage it in their advertising.  In this blog, Hollywood Branded brings you the top brand partnerships with Sony’s Venom, and take a closer look at the strategies and how brilliant campaigns from two unlikely sources, much like Eddie Brock and a symbiote, can make all the difference…

    Case Study: The Strategic Use of Controversial Celebrity Endorsement

    Posted by Chloe Wang on October 11, 2018 at 3:49 PM

    Nike's Latest Ad Campaign

    It's common knowledge that one of the most effective marketing tactics for brand advertising has always been through celebrity endorsement. However, when choosing which celebrity to work with, companies have to be extremely careful, since controversial celebrities can backlash on the brand image. Nike announced Colin Kaepernick as a major part of its 30th anniversary for the “Just Do It” campaign at the beginning of September. It soon led to several boycotts nationwide – a Rhode Island town council even approved a nonbinding resolution to boycott Nike products (although it was revoked a week after due to the widespread backlash).

    Despite the outrage of some consumers (with extreme reactions, such as burning their Nike shoes), Nike’s sales, in fact, has increased 31% from Sunday through Tuesday over Labor Day. In this blog, Hollywood Branded shares what impact Nike's latest ad campaign had on the brand and discusses how it succeeded with its controversial celebrity endorsement.

    A Case Study: Rite Aid's Latest Marketing Campaign

    In January 2016, Rite Aid installed proximity beacons into each of its stores across the U.S. By the time the installation was complete, all of its (at the time) 4,500 stores had been outfitted with beacons. This move awarded them with the bragging rights of having the largest beacon technology installation push in a retail setting, a crown previously worn by Macy’s in 2014.

    Fast forward two years, and Rite Aid is back in the limelight with a brand new marketing strategy. Emboldened by “The Great Beacon Migration Of 2016,” the pharmacy corporation feels that now is the best time to open the floodgates of marketing strategy. Of course, we'll break down the key methods that Rite Aid used to prepare themselves for their latest advertising adventure. In this blog case study, Hollywood Branded examines and explains how Rite Aid Targets Consumers Using Location Based Marketing.
