From Joan Collins’ famous Cinzano commercial in the 1970’s, to Bob Hoskins British Telecom ads in the 80’s, marketers and advertising directors have been aware of the power of celebrity for decades.
But in recent years there has been an explosion in the appetite for celebrity gossip - and now showbiz news has entered the mainstream news agenda with force.
So what does this mean for marketers who are embarking on a celebrity backed campaign?
Here at UTalkMarketing we have used our industry knowledge to put together a comprehensive guide to celebrity endorsement.
Our paper will cover:
Celebrity saturation in the UK today
Top celebrity earners from endorsements in the UK
Why use a celebrity? Advantages and disadvantages of a famous face

Which celebrity is most or least likely to persuade them to part with their cash
Which celebrity face do they trust most?
What are their favourite advertising campaigns of recent times?
Does the presence of a celebrity really help sales figures or have consumers become immune to fame in 2008?
