Product samples
Product Samples

Product placement
Product Placement

  • Strategic placement of an item in motion pictures or on television to increase or enhance the public’s knowledge about a particular product.


Product placement1
Product Placement

  • Products placed in movies or on television are often perceived by the audience to be chosen by the star, thus receiving an implied endorsement.

  • Products shown on screen within a film’s story line have higher credibility than products in advertisements which the audience knows are paid announcements


Product placement2
Product Placement

  • Placements are shown in the context of the show. They cannot be skipped over like print ads, ‘zapped’ by VCR users or ignored by viewers.

  • Producers desire brand name products in their productions to provide them with the ‘look’ of reality.

  • With advertising costs skyrocketing, product placement may provide a very cost effective means of reaching a broad audience.

  • May help to defray the cost of producing a movie or television program.

Product Placement

  • How much does it cost?

  • Your product or business might lend local color or fill a specific need-consider how Seinfeld turned small businesses such as Love Discount Stores, H&H Bagels, and Tom's Restaurant into stars.

  • "Over 90 percent of the time there is no fee," said Dean Ayers, president of the Entertainment & Marketing Resources Association. The goods run the gamut from Lemon Heads candy to corporate jets, but it's the stuff like cars and computers, which can save productions big money, that usually fly fee-free.
