Celebrity Icons and Brands Name Licensing
Celebrity icons and brands name go hand in hand in today's marketing economy. When paired seamlessly with the right product, celebrities become invaluable to the life and image of the same. As such, marketing strategies would do well to make room for this option and to play cards well in implementing it.
These days, a vast majority of celebrities are aligned to some product of the sort having at minimum, one such alliance. Fragrances serve, for example, as popular licensed product choices with everyone from Britney Spears to Sex and the City's Sarah Jessica Parker getting in on the act. Fitness videos are also a very popular option for many whereas it concerns celebrity product licensing.
The alignment of a celebrity with a particular licensed product ought to be a carefully made alliance as celebrity licensed products are often a hit or miss with consumers.
Celebrity licensed products are a success to the extent that the alliance is believable. Take for example, basketball great Michael Jordan and his alliance with sporting goods company Nike. A hugely successful Michael Jordan's Air Jordan line was the result of such an alliance. This celebrity license was a believable one as Michael Jordan was and is a sporting icon. The same could be said of Jamaica's Usain Bolt and his alliance with Puma.
If for some reason the link between the celebrity's public image, successes and the licensed product is not a believable one, then the product is bound to not bear much fruit from the relationship where sales are concerned. Along with the public image of the celebrity in question, current trends and the media also play a significant role where celebrity licensed products are concerned.
Buying the brand licensing of celebrity icons is a good idea as far as the plans and strategies concerning the alliance are well thought out and planned for. Celebrities can do so much for brands name.
