How to set up a celebrity brand endorsement deal?

1. Define Objective: Determine which celebrities will add both a brand awareness and sales boost. Have clear idea how you want to utilize celebrity endorsements, celebrity spokesperson, social media campaigns, traditional advertising campaigns, event ideas or even product development.

2. Budget: Choosing right budget to incorporate a celebrity into business efforts depends on the brand, product, desired message and of course.

3. One-off endorsement deal type: Celebrity is only expected to wear or use your brand’s product for one event. This can be at an event, a public appearance, or even just in a post on their social media account. One-off deals are much more common with celebrities than you’d think – while athletes, for example, are typically locked into multi-year deals with a particular brand, celebrities aren’t usually expected to make the same commitment. Main benefits of One-off Endorsements are it is most suitable for new brand, much more cost-effective, short term popularity.

4. Free Gifts: Send free product to different celebrities through ZJELL Franchisee PR Agency with celebrity contacts to perform the outreach. Gifting celebrities is worth the cost of giving away some of their product for free. Without an official deal in place your brand can reach out to a wide variety of celebrities in the hopes of reaching new audiences.

5. Long-term deal: These types of deals are less common, but there are some cases where brands recognise a celebrity’s staying power and are willing to commit to them long-term. Because it can be difficult to predict which celebrities have staying power and which ones might fade in the near future, most brands tend to stay away from long-term deals. But if you think you’ve identified the perfect celebrity endorser and you’re certain they’re not going anywhere for a long time, it might be worth a shot; the celebrity’s endorsement gets more powerful the longer they stay with a brand.
