It’s a business owner’s dream to get the product they’re so proud of in the hands of a star. In many cases a bit of stardust can have a huge impact on the success of your product, as celebrity watchers keep a close eye on these influential trendsetters. And with the right product, preparation, and persistence, a celebrity could be showing off your items on the red carpet. So, where do you start?

Start Your Business with a Nevada LLC

The ONLY 5-Star Rated Business Formation Company Excellent

First you’ll need a list of target celebrities, a database of media contacts, and a one-paragraph summary of your product or company for a press release. To grab attention, make sure your release includes the celebrity name, event information (when there is one), a paragraph about your product (plus cost and where to purchase it), names of VIPs (even local) or celebrities who have used it, your contact information and website, and your logo to reinforce your brand.

Then, use great packaging to capture attention. You want your gift to stand out for the very reason a celebrity wants to stand out amongst his or her peers–to be memorable.

Next you must locate a publicist, costume designer, or stylist to get the ball rolling.

To find out whether a celebrity is using your product, follow the star’s comings and goings on entertainment websites like WireImage.com or GettyImages.com. If you know in advance that you’ve snagged a celebrity to wear your product on the red carpet, these are also the photo agencies you’ll contact so you will own your own image. Chances are good that they will be sending a staff photographer to cover the event anyway, and when you call, you can confirm that they have the credentials secured already.
