Celebs have that unique spark and style inherent in them to take your startup to a next level. Startups hiring celebrities is a buzzing topic in the market. Nevertheless, some celebs have promoted startups successfully on a high level, while some have drastically failed. The failure can be due to not hiring the right stars for your offering.

  • Keeping your budget in mind- Brand ambassadors don’t come easy on the pocket. Hence, always consider and recheck your budget before celebrities signing the contract. Cheques with a bomb amount written on it and long-term royalties are usually the norm.
  • A secret to share openly- Most of the stars have the passion for charity. They respect those people and companies who share the same passion of giving. If your startup is into charity, look for celebrities who have the same interest.

Lastly, give these celebrities the importance they deserve. Stars expect the company to make them the bigger part of the campaign and prioritize them. However, don’t forget that your brand image doesn’t entirely depend on celebrity endorsement. You should have other irrefutable marketing strategies as well.
