It has become one of the key marketing mix elements. Though there is no doubt about its effectiveness in bringing in a fortune to the company there is also the risk of it going wrong in its principal objective of bringing in more revenue. The risk involved is huge to the extent that a company considering the use of celebrity has to make a very careful analysis on certain attributes before venturing into it. What really is a celebrity endorsement? It is a marketing process by which a brand gets into a contract with a celebrity and makes the celebrity to endorse the use of its products in a way that it creates trust among the customers.
That says a lot about how strong the media can influence society. If a celebrity were to step out of line of their regular behavior that’d be the next cover story for their next magazine.

They need to keep up with the image they set for themselves because of the expectations set by the media and their fans.
The success of a new film can be defined as either commercial success or critical success. Commercial success is more important to mainstream films, whilst critical success is more important to independent films. A good film script for a mainstream film will be simplistic and predictive so that it appeals to mass audiences. Also the film script will belong to a clear genre and will have a structured storyline. If the majority of the population finds the script of a film to be unclear and hard to understand then they will give their friends that feedback and so people won’t go to see the film, which is especially bad for a mainstream film as they cost millions to produce and rely on commercial success.
Mainstream marketing and media have effectively brainwashed our society into accepting a false meaning of success. The media want us to believe that having lots of money, living in a big house, and owning all of the latest cars, fashions, and technology is the key to happiness, and real success. True success requires respect, appreciation, integrity, and patience, which are traits that by human nature are difficult to get, especially in the face of the media who relentlessly deceive us, control our thoughts, and usurp our independence in order to increase their bottom line. In addition, marketers want us to believe that living a selfish life, involving nothing but the pursuit of money and fame will bring success and happiness. Sadly, this is not true.
Are they mostly one sided, or are there alternative points of view? Does the host or journalist give ample time for both sides to present their argument? Or does the speaker abruptly interrupt an opposing viewpoint to get his/her favored viewpoint to win? What you typically might see is journalists will cut short an opposing viewpoint, and they might say things like "we're out of time" or "we have to go to a commercial break." The three things that control TV media in the US is first and foremost the ratings/viewers, second is the advertisers/sponsors, and corporate owners also have a significant influence on the type of media aired.
Jonathan Kawula ENGL 102 Adam Mills 02/17/14 Michael Jordan: King of the Windy City What differentiates an icon from a celebrity? How do their actions make or break their career? Some of the most influential icons show essential qualities such as dignity, integrity, and sportsmanship while exhibiting tremendous talents to the world. However, icons can also display their characteristics negatively in the media because of bad judgment and decisions that put their careers in jeopardy. Today’s youth are influenced by many artists that have criminal records and people that are famous because of bad decisions that got them front page news.
Public Figures vs. Our Expectations Do we expect too much from our public figures? If so, how much should we expect? Public figures deserve their rights to have some decent privacy. Yes, we expect too much from a public figure because they are constantly talked about and known. The media is constantly following celebrities and everyone else in the limelight.
They lower their prices and make their products alternative to competitors that are more expensive. Both companies defraud their consumers by pretending to deliver high culture to the masses (Cave & Klein, 2000). Consumers normally do not recognize the false advertisement because IKEA and Old Navy put their items in popular shows and commercial, so that customers will buy
It is irrefutable that the action and behavior of celebrities have more good or bad effect on people especially on youth. Celebrities are increasingly becoming role models for the youth as their images and lifestyles are splashed across televisions, movies, magazines, and internet in today’s era of technology. I strongly believe this is largely a negative development. A Number of arguments surround my opinion. To begin with, media is always trying to make these celebrities more and more famous by portraying their images as they are super hero and what they are doing is right.
Conspicuous consumption is the act of acquiring lavish goods or services that a person does not have to obtain or desire, merely with the idea of displaying and boasting ones riches and keep us to the social status. American popular culture which is the modem way of living tempts us to be gluttonous and conspicuous consumption is everywhere affecting the style of buying sumptuous goods.
