The use of celebrity endorsements can be a good way to promote a brand, as long as the brand fits the celebrity. The article discusses three reasons why a company should use celebrity endorsements:
1. Celebrities have a large range of followers, giving them the ability to build brand equity which created product differentiation to consumers.
2. Companies can reach a global audience since celebrities have worldwide fan bases, and an endorsement can link the product to a celebrity's skills, making fans feel closer to and more like the celebrity.
3. Celebrity endorsements increase consumers' awareness of a product, since consumers are more likely to remember an ad linked to a celebrity.
However, not all celebrities are the right fit for all products. Endorsements can backfire if the celebrities are promoting something they would never use, giving the impression of nothing more than a sponsored advertisement.
