Module 2 – CasePROMOTION, INFLUENCERS AND ETHICSAssignment Overview
Large corporations routinely use celebrity endorsers in advertising and marketing campaigns. Many of these stars make millions from these deals. Their faces and names are found in all forms of advertising and marketing. They often become synonymous with brands they represent.
