The longevity of a Hollywood star’s career totally depends on how they are perceived in the public eye. If a star falls out of favor with the public, or if they aren’t in plain view on a regular basis, then no matter what their level of talent – the jobs begin to go away and they eventually get forgotten.
So how does a typical Hollywood star keep all this from happening, and stay in the good graces of the general populous? Enter a top notch public relations company – a good PR company can handle a wide variety of tasks to ensure that their Hollywood star clients continue to be considered for the best parts available.
Good Deeds Widely Advertised
A good public relations firm will make sure that word on any and all good deeds and acts of good will are widely distributed to the public. Participation in charity events and charitable contributions, volunteer work and active membership in advocacy groups and organizations are all things that are flooded into the public eye.
Well written press releases, press conferences, interviews and appearances will all be scheduled to get the word out to as many ears and eyes as possible. When a star does anything good for humanity or the environment – a good pr company will do its best to make sure that every last person that may be interested or impressed by the news gets to hear it.
Marathons for charities, adoptions, picketing for causes and getting their hands dirty to aid in disaster recovery are all things that can sky rocket a Hollywood star’s status and whether they’re doing those things because the cause is really and truly important to them or just to win favor with their dwindling fan base – a good public relations firm will get the good word out to all fronts.
For every celebrity that breaks their back performing dozens of good deeds, there is another who can’t stop using drugs, can’t keep their mouth closed when necessary or can’t keep their clothes on in public. For this group of Hollywood stars, a good pr company is a necessity to keep things from falling apart as the drama unfolds.
As much as good publicity can turn a career around for the better, bad publicity can send it right down the toilet. As much as the public wants to hear about all of the Hollywood stars who are having troubles, not so many want those problem laden stars to be a huge success and studios don’t want to associate themselves with Hollywood stars who have nothing but problems.
A good public relations firm can literally make most of the bad scenarios go away. Drug addictions that need rehab are released to the media as treatments for exhaustion from being overworked and for problems that are more severe or pronounced, public heartfelt apologies are made through press releases and appearances. Even the most heinous incidents will often be forgiven if a wayward Hollywood star makes an apology with a believable amount of remorse for the situation.
For the typical star with no problems to speak of, or no outstanding contributions to society, a pr company can send them on a whirlwind media tour to talk about their work. The daytime and evening talk show circuit and sit down interviews with entertainment magazines will keep the star exactly where they need to be – positively placed directly in the view of potential fans. A pr firm will set up all of these interviews and make sure that they are structured in a manner as to shed positive light on their client.
The tasks that a good PR company is capable are many, but the single main objective for a PR company working with anyone in the entertainment industry is simple – keep them looking good to the public and make sure that their fan base gets bigger rather than smaller.
