Aside from being celebrities what do Michael Jackson, Sofia Vergara, and Faith Hill all have in common? One word PEPSI……….All three have had celebrity endorsement deals with soft drink powerhouse Pepsi-Cola Company. As if Pepsi needs the help of celebrities they understand the power of having them in their ad-campaigns and have the budget to secure famous athletes, actors, actresses, musicians and other pop-culture icons as powerful tools to reach consumers and persuade them to choose their beverage. According to Andrew Apfelberg partner at the Los Angeles- based law firm Greenberg Glusker:
For as long as any of us can recall, celebrity endorsements have been a staple of the American marketing landscape. The explanation is simple: if we see that someone we admire and trust to some degree is associated with a specific brand, we want to be associated with that brand as well. In the best-case scenario, we’ll buy the product; but at worst, we’ll recognize the brand in the future
While companies like Pepsi have the connections and resources to bring big celebrity endorsement deals to life for the average beauty professional celebrity connections are limited and finding the resources to bring those connections to life can be challenging. Fortunately there are brand and product marketing firms with niche appeal in the entertainment industry that can help beauty professionals expand their reach one such company is Secret Room Events.
