  • At least celebrities should ensure they endorse only high end premium brands and that too from different industry cateogries and not stoop down low to endorse products like batteries, shaving blades etc.

  • When celebrities appears on print or electronic media to advertise a product or service, they immediately catch the attention of viewer (i.e. consumer) and in that process viewer gets apprised about the attributes of product or service being endorsed by celebrity. When the viewer (i.e. consumer) make s a decision to buy such product or service, he/she is likely to be highly influenced in his decision in favour of the product or service endosed by celebrity if viewer is an ardent fan of this celebrity. Further,this infuence will be more strong if celebrity endorse the same product or service for a longer period and consumes also.

  • Celebrities endorsing a product goes towards building Brand image. Consumers who are highly influenced by the particular celebrity who has endorsed the product are connected with the product. It does not have a major influence on those consumers who do not know the celebrity, but evaluate the product on its merit. Yes, consumers fail to connect when celebrities endorse too many brands.

  • Endorsement by celeberities increases visibility for the product, need not necessarily result in retails. However if Carl Lewis endorses a shoe brand, this could induce a buying shift, thus endorsement has to be parallel to the field of fame of the celeberity.
    celebirity again endorsing many products will infact be ineffective. Answered by Ramachandran , AGM at pvt employment | 17, Dec 2010 09:13 PM
  • Most definitely. It only results in an overkill with the consumers not taking you seriously on any of the products. Consumers would probably watch in awe but never end up buying the product if it is from a multiple endorsee. Being a celebrity also makes it even more difficult as consumers look upto them.

  • Celebrity can always bring the initial attention needed, especially in rural India. That’s where our 60-70% population resides. Urban population would look to gather more information and than buy a product.


    But celebrity endorsing too many brands does not confuse the customer, if celebrity persona matches with product. Let’s take Segwag – if he endorses parachute hair oil .or Mr. Ganguly endorsing for Gold Gym. It will not only create confusion, but also bad publicity. Or sachin endorsing ujaala powder.

  • In my opinion too much featuring of celebrities for a product by virtue of endorsing, ultimately leads to the performance of the product to go on a decline. On the other hand, too many brands getting endorsement from one celebrity or group of celebrities does not go well with the ultimate consumer. I would rather relate with a personal touch by portraying more common 'men' for endorsing of a product. This clicks immediately with the masses as they relate more to it. Nowadays the education level of the masses is on the upswing, and so blind trust and faith has taken a severe beating, today one wants more of practicallity and reality.

  • Of course it is possible that the consumer face disconnect with a star endorsing too many brands. For making the brand discernible as well as connected with the masses or class, as the products may be, the companies do take stars as brand ambassadors. But stars are also greedy and in the game of making big bucks ask their managers to take as many brands possible to make hay while the sun is hot. Though ultimately in the long run they lose their distinctive charm. But who cares now a days? Ultimately the brand they are endorsing does not get the desired value and its ultimately up to the managers who have roped in the star either to continue with him or make some changes.The bottomline is-brands do suffer Answered by Prabhakar Srivastava , Principal Consultant at Future Next Consultants | 15, Sep 2010 11:50 PM

  • When a celebrity endorses too many brands , then the Brand looses the recall value instead celebrity becomes a bigger brand and gains higher recall value.

    For example, now it matters less that which brand is endorsed by Dhoni , but what matters more is that the number of brands endorsed by dhoni.
    Guess the readers would find the opinion acceptable. Answered by Saurabh Jain , Marketing Executive at UBX | 07, Sep 2010 01:48 PM
  • Yes consumers wont succeed in connecting the celeberities endorsing too many brands. Reasons are evident:
    1. Those endorsing too many brands end up endorsing two or more competitor's brands.(Pepsi and Coca cola for e.g)
    2. Like one of the peers expressed it creates clutter in their minds.

    3. Celeberity is a bigger brand than the brand he endorses.(e.g. Mahindra singh Dhoni endorsing a mobile handset or a mobiles services).

    Then why do the companies endorse such celeberities?
    1. It definitely helps in increasing the brand visilility.

    2. Though celebrities are a bigger brands. The other brand gets a Brand Connect with the model celeberity.

    3. They go for celeberities as a competition. Answered by Vivekanand Katarki , Asst Manager - Marketing at Callisto Projects Pvt Ltd | 07, Sep 2010 11:07 AM

    The majority of the population in India who had begun to consume after a long period of deprivation due to their disposable income levels currently having seen a remarkable increase in the recent years would want to associate with the celebrities who fulfil l his aspirational values & are part of his dreams he cherishes to see happen, hence all the theories of disconnect etc are only but slogans/themes which are propagated by marketers who sit in air -condition cabin and who strictly follow the Harvard Business

    Being influenced by Celebraties will depend on which category of products they are endorsing---Whitening creams,Cosmetics,Anti-ageing,Clear-Spots,Shampoos etc are products that can be good for the celebraties.
    The question here is of credibility!!!
    The celebraties (film folks) are considered to be "above normal beautiful"persons.
    Cement,Wire-cables,and the likes of it---what is the credibility??

  • I would like to ask how much is "too many brands"! Evidently, there is no clear answer for it.

    The crucial aspect for consumers will remain the ability of the commercial to transmit categorical messages about the brand. The ability to transfer the message can be enhanced with the inclusion of a celebrity if done as a part of a well-though tactic or strategy. Otherwise, there can be underachievement of objectives (meaning, more money has to be spent to reach objectives) or mishaps (meaning, costly reversal of tactics/ strategy to retain market position).

  • Well celeberities only give a loyalty factor to the brand but doesnt make a big difference in its sales because most of the brands endorsed by the big names are used for the middle, upper middle & higher class of the society and these consumers take their own decisions.

There are a few simple reasons a) because a single celebrity endorsing too many products leads to credibility issues b) At times it only adds to the clutter and confusion. c) sometimes a wrong brand celebrity rub off also creates a bad impact. d) My personal view point is using a celebrity is merely a case of creative bankruptcy.

  • YES. Consumers who do get affected by celebrity endorsements start getting confused after watching the same celebrity endorsing multiple products. Because then consumer realizes the celebrity is not uniquely promoting that one product only, rather using his status for purely commercial purposes. As a result, the 'aura' around the celebrity diminishes impacting further endorsements. And it is true for all kind of celebs. Answered by Ashutosh Priyadarshi , Consumer Marketing at CSS Corp Pvt Ltd | 06, Sep 2010 04:20 PM

  • - To me, it's true to have the same ambassador for different brands with reducing effects. Let's not assume that consumers are ill-informed about celebrity status. Consumers infact will shift their focus on something else for sure in case a celebrity endorses too many brands or a single brand that doesn't connect with the brand story.

  • Today consumers relate to the idea more than a celebrity..case in point would be the "What an idea" campaign. Celebrity connect is there till the campaign is on at full swing, but if the celebrity is doing too many campaigns, the recall diminshes. For a new brand, a celebrity may be important to provide the consumer a frame of reference, but to have high recall and connect the thought behind using the celebrity and the campaign thought should be very strong Answered by alok bhargava , Management Trainee at Ozone Group | 06, Sep 2010 03:35 PM
  • Yes the consumer do still connect 'the brand with Celebrity', but yes if the celebrity endorsing too many brands... its difficult to associate a 'celebrity with a specific brand.'
    Need to understand the thin line of difference:
    Hence brands dont get the additional mileage of consumer connecting celebrity to the brand. Which is a loss though not too big.

    Examples: Amitabh can not be connected to any brand too many endorsement. But Navratna tal & Binani Cement Reminds us of Amitabh.

  • One of the most reasons for celebrity endorsements are to entice Brand recall among your relevant audience. If a celebrity is endorsing too many brands it is impossible to maintain a levelled brand recall which completely disorients the purpose of celebrtiy advertising. Although strong celebrites such as the likes of SRK when endorse number of brands (more than 25, I think) he is remembered distinctively in each one of them. But not every celebrity has the capability or the aura to do so. Interestingly I have written a thesis/research paper of the effectiveness of celebrity endorsements @ Brunel University, UK.

  • There's no doubt that brand recall blurs if a celebrity appears in too many product commercials. Its made easier with the kind of social connects / storylines TVCs create in the name of creativity. There's nothing wrong with that kind of creativity, but I could easily replace one storyline with another from a totally different product category, and you wouldn't even notice the difference. If you can't do that, you won't recall the product. And if you only recall Dhoni or AB, the TVC has lost out on the objective. If Dhoni or AB decide to endorse several products, their TVCs make a mockery of the multi-crore campaign budget made out for them.
    Its without a doubt that brand recall suffers in multiple endorsement cases. Answered by Aarif Malik , Asst. Vice President at Sampark Public Relations Pvt. Ltd. | 06, Sep 2010 02:38 PM
  • I would agree to this. A celebrity is an iconic personality. He's got millions of fan followers behind him and he makes an impact on their lives one way or other.

    If the celebrity endorses too many brands, he might be instrumental in confusing the consumer about the right selection and making the right choice, which might lead the consumer to select the wrong benefits for themselves.

  • Over-exposing a celebrity can have its ill-effects. Many experts feel that the consumer starts losing focus and the communication (of different brands) gets blurred. The consumer fails to connect with any brand. But on the other hand some feel that brand ambassadors such as Bachchan or Dhoni are rare species. And that explains why most companies with big advertising budgets are in a hurry to rope one of them to feature in their commercials. What is your say on this?
