Celebrity Cost

How Much Should A Celebrity Cost?- CSB Has The Answers

What a simple question right?  Wrong!! The truth is, this is such a tough question because to be honest, most agents don’t have a traditional “rate card” for their clients. They make it up as they go. You say, “How is that possible”?  My reply is, of course it is possible. Agents are not bound by some type of price protection or truth in advertising. Agents deal with commodities and their clients are the ultimate commodity.

That is a fact. Celebrities are commodities in an over saturated market-place.  Yes there are unicorns. Kim Kardashian, Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Tom Hanks, Nicole Kidman and others. But these unicorns are few and far between. You rank and file celebrities in fact categories and then put them up against others in their category.

As you can see there is a lot of competition in the market-place so this normally should lead to reduced prices. But with the economy being reasonably strong, the stock-markets at all time highs, the celebrity cost has been very expensive as well.  Having said that, there are always deals to be had! There are potentially alternate celebrities that you could hire. Maybe you want to reach a 30-55 year old mom and your first choice was asking for a ridiculously high fee with a private jet, etc, etc. etc.!  But instead of wasting your time and hoping because you have a great event with an amazing story which you think would really touch the celebrity, let me do you a favor…..   PLS STOP IT.

Sadly, your amazing story told so emotionally will never get to the celebrity 95% of the time. Just like sending samples through PR “gifting” agencies are a massive waste of time, so is trying to get a celebrity to do something below market value celebrity cost. Just being honest here.

The goal isn’t to get that once in a lifetime booking of a celebrity. While a nice thought, is that really going to be you?  Chances are, probably not.
