Subjectively, I am not a fan of Glenn Beck at all – to be clear. Objectively, I think this (image below) sponsorship is an egregious use of “celebrity” to pump a product. Will he take responsibility for the product’s promise – or lack of performance?
How much financial risk should you ask from your fans? Pimping someone’s financial future (INVESTMENT) is very different than buying a $15.00 bottle of perfume from a pop star brand or booking a cheap hotel with Captain Kirk. The “personal brand” needs to be credible to the product / service.
He’s turned into Ed McMahon.
