Celebrity Endorsement

Product Endorsement Agents UK

As consumers, our choices are often based upon recommendations from people we trust: friends and family, work colleagues, and our favourite personalities. Celebrity endorsements are this recommendation process writ large.

Power of Celebrity Endorsements

Celebrities project lifestyle messages that brands can tap into to position their products or services. Certainly this can be an expensive marketing method: Jamie Oliver’s celebrity endorsement ad campaign for Sainsbury’s cost £41 million, but the return-on-investment can be startling.

For example, Heston Blumenthal’s eyewear range for Vision Express, although a costly campaign, helped to drive a 6% increase in sales in 2013 and an 11% rise in operating profits.

With the rise in social media and other digital marketing channels the costs don’t necessarily need to be so extravagant and celebrity product endorsements are fast becoming more affordable.

Why use a celebrity to endorse your product or service?

The reasons why celebrity led product endorsements are so successful are simple:

  • NEVER BEFORE  has the consumer been so aware of, or responsive to, celebrity led advertising and endorsements.
  • NEVER BEFORE  has there existed so many TV channels, websites and alternative media such as YouTube, eager to carry these compulsive and persuasive messages, as well as celebrity gossip about them.
  • NEVER BEFORE  has demand for celebrity involvement in all forms of advertising been higher, or more cost effective. According to Campaign Magazine over 22% of all TV advertising utilise a celebrity endorsement in vision and over 30% include a celebrity voice over. Not surprising then that statistics prove that advertising including a celebrity out-perform 2-1 those without.
