Are you looking to get the rich and famous out to your event? Well, that’s not as difficult as you may think at first.
There are tons of strategies you can try to get attention from celebrities. Let’s go through how to get endorsements from celebrities for your next event.
1. Book The A-List
If you have the budget for it, many celebrities are available for booking appearances.
Depending on the celebrity, they may even post about it on social media channels — especially if the event is for charity or a nonprofit. It’s one of the easiest ways you can think of on the ‘how to get endorsements’ list.
And, you don’t have to reach out to the celebrities directly — we’re more than happy to help you out and get your favorite celebrities out celebrating at your next event!
2. Send Them Swag
Everyone loves free stuff — and that goes double for celebrities. If you send the celebrity you’re wooing some free merch, they may just post about your event. Or, they could go as far as to pose with your merch!
When sending your swag, you should make sure you send information about your event and organization along with it, so the celebrity (or their assistant) can do their research on you effectively!
3. Sponsor That Content
You must have seen sponsored content (or ‘sponcon’) posts on different social media channels by now. Well, if you’ve got the money, you can pay your celebrity of choice to post about your business or event!
Sponsored posts are a totally valid way to draw attention to your event, and they tend to be more successful and personalized than regular advertisements. People really do listen to celebrities!
4. Keep Your Sights Realistic
Look, you’re probably not going to get Brad Pitt or Michelle Obama on board to endorse your next event (unless again, it’s a charitable cause). You need to choose your celebrity endorsement of choice realistically and aim low.
That doesn’t mean that you can’t get a really great celebrity to give you a shout-out — you just don’t want to get your hopes up when you do end up with a D-List!
5. Slide Into Those DMs
If the celebrity you have in mind is active on social media, there’s one pretty easy way to get their attention. Tweet at them, tag them on Instagram, slide into their direct messages — hey, it’s worth a shot, right?
Especially if you have a viral tweet or something else to draw a celebrity’s attention (a cute dog always works) reaching out on social media can be a great way to get a celebrity to endorse your event. It actually happens more often than you would think, so shoot your shot!
