Celebrity Advertising: Literature Review and Propositions
Peter Yannopoulos*
In this paper we review several studies in the area of celebrity advertising. Topics include, why companies use celebrity advertising, achieving the right fit between the brand and the celebrity, the use of athletes as spokespeople, financial considerations of celebrity advertising, and potential risks of celebrity advertising. Next, we develop several propositions and discuss the conclusions and managerial implications of the research.

Field of research: Celebrity advertising, Celebrity endorsers, Sponsorship, Celebrity spokespeople

1. Introduction
A celebrity endorser is “an individual who is known to the public (actor, sports figure, entertainer, etc) for his or her achievements in areas other than that of the product class endorsed” (Friedman & Friedman 1979). Sponsorship is defined as “providing support for and associating the organization‟s name with events, programs, or even people such as athletes or teams” (Peter & Donnelly 2006). Corporations have chosen both sponsorship and celebrity endorsement as means to increase exposure and brand awareness, as well as reposition their products. The terms celebrity endorsement and sponsorship will be used interchangeably in this report. It has been estimated that about 10% of the dollars spent on television advertising are used in celebrity endorsement advertisements (Agrawal & Kamakura 1995). Because of its importance, it is imperative for managers to be able to determine what impact a particular sponsorship will have on different aspects of a brand‟s performance such as brand preference, brand loyalty, and, ultimately, sales and profitability (Aaker 1991; Keller 2008). In this paper I will review selected aspects of research on celebrity advertising, discuss the reasons firms use celebrity advertising, examine how to determine the…...

Poorly trained assessors are unlikely to be objective in their observations, will misinterpret or inadequately record evidence, probably come to the wrong conclusions and, if that weren't bad enough, the chances are they'll lack the techniques to provide effective feedback to the candidates they have so misjudged.

End of Watch

...Justin Champlin “End of Watch” "End of Watch" is one of the best police movies in recent years and not just because I think so, a beautiful fusion of performances and great action. Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña are Taylor and Zavala, two Los Angeles street cops who bend a few rules but must be acknowledged as heroes. After too many police movies about officers who essentially use their badges as licenses to run wild, it's inspiring to realize that these men take their mission to serve and protect with such seriousness they're willing to risk their lives. Taylor and Zavala fit the template of the "cop buddy movie," but "End of Watch" plays such a deeper role than that. They've been partners for years and are so close that Zavala's wife, Gabby (Natalie Martinez), and Taylor's girlfriend, Janet (Anna Kendrick), become more or less like sisters throughout the film. The two cops are transferred to a tough, largely populated Mexican-American district, where their intel and sometimes foolish persistence to not give up leads them across the plains of a Mexican cartel operating in Los Angeles. The assignment they “put themselves on” is more fit for a detective, but they don’t the pure adrenaline rush that ensues throughout the movie, and eventually becomes so dangerous to the cartel that a hit is ordered against them. As the movie opens, Taylor is filming a video documentary about his job, for a film class he's taking. "End of Watch" begins with his narration about the......

...Neighborhood Watch Proposal Neighborhood Watch Proposal Introduction A Neighborhood Watch Program is a community-implemented program that assists with preventing crime. This program was started in the 1970’s by the National Sheriff’s Association to encourage members of various communities to observe and report on suspicious activities within their neighborhoods.

...ITDM IT WATCH ON VIRTUALIZATION SUBMITTED BY GROUP 9 CONTENTS 1. INTRODUCTION TO VIRTUALIZATION 2. TYPES OF VIRTUALIZATION 3. ADVANTAGES OF VIRTUALIZATION 4. VIRTUALIZATION IN INDIA 5. REFERENCES INTRODUCTION Virtualization is the creation of a virtual (rather than actual) version of something, such as an operating system, a server, a storage device or network resources. In layman's term, virtualization allows you to run an independent operating system within an existing operating system using the existing hardware resources. So if you want to learn another operating system like Linux, you can use virtualization to run Linux on top of the existing operating system. Virtualization is the abstraction of IT resources, separating their physical instance and boundaries from their function. Virtualization has brought important innovation to IT Virtualization concept was first developed by IBM in the 1960s to fully utilize mainframe hardware by logically partitioning them into virtual machines. These partitions will allow mainframe computers to perform multiple tasks and applications at the same time.. During the 1980s and 1990s, desktop computing and x86 servers become available and so the virtualization technology was discarded eventually. Client-server applications and the emergence of Windows and Linux made server computing significantly......

Swatch Watch

...Swatch: The One to Watch Every serious entrepreneur endeavors to create a product or service that will revolutionize the known world. Ingenuity ignites the flame and perseverance fuels the fire while mogul-hopefuls anticipate consumer satisfaction. Nevertheless, strategic efforts are an unrivaled asset no matter how great the idea. Since the boom of modern-day business, industry experts have refined how-to-make-a-buck to a complex science that analyzes the who, what, why, when, where, and how of ensuring profitability. A concept known as “The 4 Ps”: sums up a snapshot of their findings: Product, Price, Place, and Promotion (insert textbook reference here, i.e, Norris, 2010). Successful companies apply these principles with a finesse that can lead to products whose market shelf life is timeless. Such is the case with Swatch. The following is an analysis that examines how the effective employment of this marketing mix (The 4 Ps) revitalized this company and helped it reclaim its place as a formidable contender. Product The most basic element of supply and demand first begins with a product (or service). The Swatch company’s central component is quite simply a timepiece, also known as a wristwatch. Created in the 1980s, this product’s appeal entailed a watch that was lighter in weight, mirroring the functionality of its contemporaries, distinguished by boldness, fun, and flair (Swatch, 2010). However, among several factors that contributed to its broad consumer......

Earthquake Watch

...EQ Watch Review By doing my earthquake watch and taking this class, I have gained a lot of knowledge about earthquakes. There are so many earthquakes that occur in just one day. Before my earthquake watch, I never would have known that earthquakes were this common. I found out that even we humans can cause earthquakes. Building new structures like dams and plants may cause earthquakes. There are also a lot of hazards that come with earthquakes that I had no idea about. Ground shaking, ground deformation, aftershocks, landslides, liquefaction, tsunamis, and fire can all come from earthquakes. Once an earthquake occurs, there are consequences right behind it. Earthquake occurrence happens because of plate tectonics. Plate tectonics says that the Earth's lithosphere is broken into a mosaic of oceanic and continental plates which can slide over the aesthenosphere, which is the uppermost layer of the mantle. The plates are in constant motion. Where they interact important geological processes take place, such as the formation of mountain belts, earthquakes, and volcanoes. Therefore, the movement of the plates causes most earthquakes that happen around the globe. The Elastic Rebound Theory was very helpful in explaining to me the way that energy is stored in a fault and released during an earthquake. When you stretch out a rubber band and let it go, it goes back to its original shape, just like what happens around the area of the fault before and after an earthquake.......
