Digital Endorsement: 10 Artists Who Will Gladly Mention Your Business On Twitter
As a culture it appears that we've stopped caring about the idea of selling out. Whether it's because we've learned that record sales don't always pay the bills, have started seeing artists as humans instead of paragons of creative integrity, or simply stopped caring, artists saddling up with corporate sponsors isn't a big deal anymore.
Screengrab via SponsoredTweets.com Don't worry- I don't know who this guy is either.
Now let's say that you, the person sitting there reading this, wanted to have a famous musician plug your product. How could you compete for their attention against corporations and their big bucks?
With Sponsored Tweets you don't have to. If you're willing to pony up the cash you can get some of the biggest names in music to talk about whatever it is you're trying to sell.
Don't believe me? Take a look at this list of people who would just love to pimp your product.
Do you make a cheesecake that's worth walking across the city? Diddy may not be able to make Chopper and Ness fetch it for him but he can let his millions of followers know about it. It's not going to be cheap because, as we all know, if you have to call for pricing it's going to be mad expensive.
9. Jared Leto: @JaredLeto -- $13,000
Financing videos for 30 Seconds to Mars gets expensive so it only makes sense for Leto to find alternative revenue streams. Still, that's a steep price tag for a guy who doesn't even have a million followers. Things must be more expensive in the Outernet.
8. Rebecca Black: @MsRebeccaBlack -- $3,900
"Friday"? More like payday. Black, or perhaps more accurately her manager, have managed to spin the Manos of bad songs in to a potentially lucrative Twitter career. No word on if Patrice Wilson writes her tweets for her.
