    Case Study On How A Brand Rocket Fueled To Sales Success

    We are often asked if having a brand appear in a segment on a talk show or as product placement in a TV show leads to actual sales.  And our answer? We think so - but too many times clients don't have analytics in place to measure results.  But when they do, it can make a MASSIVE impact.

    Talk shows air five days a week, and some show a lot of brands within their content.  Some placements are good, and others are absolutely great.  And there is a little bit of magic sauce that can take it to the next level and actually impact brand sales along with the brand awareness talk shows offer.  In this blog, Hollywood Branded shares a case study (not one of our own!) on how one brand found a way to increase sales with talk show product placement, and what the magic to this rocket fuel was.

Do you put your head down like an ostrich and try to weather the storm ... or do you start looking for different eggs to put in your basket, and grab onto other properties and individuals who can help give you a quick brand lift while sharing your message of brand beliefs which (hopefully) counter those of whatever happened that went wrong.

    How Bad Behavior Can Lose A Lucrative Endorsement Deal - And Consumer Trust

    No one is perfect. And as people who are constantly under a bright light and a fine microscope, celebrities know this better than anyone. One tiny wrong step or social post can send the twittersphere into anarchy.  And it may cause a brand to end an endorsement deal if the brand management disagrees with the celeb's actions, behavior or thoughts - especially after a big screw up.  Effective immediately, and possibly at the cost of millions of dollars.

    And of late, a LOT of celebrities have found themselves in some pretty hot water, not only damaging their own brand, but also the content they star in.  In this blog, Hollywood Branded looks at the worst cases of when celebrity endorsements go wrong and exactly what happened to make these celebrity partnerships turn sour - and how to keep them from happening to your brand.

    How Celebs Sell Sports Drinks And Soda Pop

    With Beyonce's investment in WATERMELON WATR, a sports drink company, she joined a growing trend of celebrities investing time, energy and (gasp) sometimes their own money in non-alcoholic beverages.   And these partnerships have been a game changer for both the brand and the celebrity in terms of sales, as many of these partnerships have taken off.
