While celebrity endorsements are generally very expensive, we know that it can be extremely beneficial to have high profile fans for your brand. LYA targets appropriate celebrities through their publicists and directly through social media to test clients’ products. Oftentimes, if they like the product(s), engaged celebrities will provide social media mentions for your brand that can then be used as leverage in relevant PR outreach without the costs of hiring a paid celebrity spokesperson.
Additionally, LYA monitors and evaluates all appropriate celebrity events/gift bag and sampling opportunities. We focus solely on A-List events where the client will see a return on investment via celebrity photos and social media shares that can be leveraged for PR purposes.
