Hollywood Branded Inc. secured and activated a multi-platform marketing sponsorship for Crayola as the Official Activity & Craft Sponsor for Giuliana and Bill Rancic’s son Duke’s First Birthday Party on August 11th, 2013 at the Triunfo Creek Vineyards in Agoura, CA. Public feedback and the reach of this sponsorship far surpassed the client’s expectations and the trickle-down affect of social media influence stock-piled for days. Read on to see the results we generated for the Crayola brand…

The “Giuliana & Bill” stars spared no expense, splurging on a petting zoo, mechanical bull and Crayola coloring station. “He had the greatest time,” Bill told the mag, while Giuliana added, “Duke’s eyes lit up all day long.”
Word-of-mouth has always been the greatest form of advertising. Crayola not only benefited from the tremendous audience already established by celebrity social media influencers, Giuliana and Bill Rancic, the brand also received subsequent word-of-mouth from their fans and followers. Including shares and retweets, the return on Crayola’s sponsorship opportunity reached un-measurable heights.
Crayola gained the opportunity for repeat exposure by landing coverage of the event inside InTouch Magazine. With a pretty great tabletop life span, the published article gave the Crayola brand an great shot at repeat exposure.
Social Media Coverage
From hashtags to the bringing up of nostalgic memories, the Crayola brand was all over social media, generating comments and repeat brand-name statements.
