Next, we utilize our extensive research capabilities to uncover celebrities who have an authentic connection to your cause and who might be willing to partner with you. We then use our network of industry relationships to cultivate participation by the celebrities, manage the engagement and measure the results to ensure we accomplish your goals.

Cause Entertainment Integration

We will identify, cultivate and manage cause entertainment integration with film, television, music, sports and online properties including cause placement in production and cross-marketing campaigns. As with Celebrity Engagement, Cause Entertainment Integrations will amplify your existing campaigns by taking serious subjects and wrapping them up in entertaining packages to achieve measurable results for you.
