Do you really not know about marketing?

Well first off, Lancome has no interest in you. You are not their target. Lancome does research of who buys their products. Someone saw that their is crossover between who buys Lancome make-up and Emma Watson fans. Thus she does an ad campaign for them. You always have to consider your audience.

Anyone who is famous has a PR team that does some of the weeding down. Not poor Emma at all, in fact this helps Emma. Famous people get hundreds of offers a week. Some of them are just not of interest. Every one has a "branding". Meaning there are campaigns that fall into Emma's branding and those that don't. For example, Emma is not going to be the new face of Texas Instruments any time soon. PR teams help weed out the campaigns that aren't of interest. Ultimately they work for Emma. Emma has sat down with her team and told them what she wants them to do. They do not make the final decisions. But, they decide what she gets told about. Some things are obvious choices. This is true for anyone famous. No company can just call up a famous person, they have to go through a team. I am actually super surprised you don't know this. Kind of just logical.

I will give you a specific example. I had the pleasure of meeting Mayim Bialik this year. I heard her speak at a private an public event. She talked about this vary case. Mayim Bialik does not typically do any kind of ad campaigns or marketing stuff. It is not of interest to her. So her PR team doesn't even let her know about those offers half the time. However, her PR team was approached by Texas Instruments (thus the example above) and they know Mayim loves the brand. So they decided to tell her about it and she became their "face".



Arie, please keep cool. No reason, to hyperventilate again. I worked for 29 years in the PR- and Mediabusiness, so I have a little idea, what is possible and what not. I forgot to add "sarcasm", because I am well aware why Lancome is putting so much money in Emma. And you also know my opinion about her "team" - no need to defend them, I will not change my mind until I see that these highly payed people are able to set up a propper homepage and FB-presense. Ok? Good.

I was just asking a simple question...

From your post I honestly thought you didn't understand and I was only trying to clarify how it works. I really didn't mean anything by it. I am not trying to change your mind about anything. I was just explaining how it works because it seemed like you were asking me a question.

I am sorry for misunderstanding your post as being an honest question. I guess I just don't typically assume people are being sarcastic. I was only trying to help, but I wont be making that mistake again.

Would it have killed you to be nice to me and not assume I was being sarcastic? I can't believe it but I actually feel really hurt by your post. I was honestly just trying to clarify the situation because I thought you were confused. I'm sorry for being nice and trying to help.

Just in case this is needed.... there is absolutely no sarcasm in this post. Just a little sadness and disappointment that you can't seem to be nice to many people. I am going to choose think the best of you, because thats what I do, and hope that this is not how you speak to everyone.

So, well, we both misunderstood each other. Sorry for that. But after 29 years in that business, working in many fields of PR and Marketing, I think I know at least a little what I am talking about. Ok, maybe PR in Great Britain is a little bit different, but in fact we were taking over here many things "invented" in GB. I worked on homepages since Internet was invented (from the first "static" side until the last release with all the gimmicks, the net offers), I produced documentary movies (as producer, screenwriter, cutter, director), I did promotions for some well known actors here in Austria, I did field-research, promotions, events for 30.000 people ecc. ecc. and I'm really tired to be portrayed here constantly as an idiot, not knowing what he is talking about, worth to get a bomb on his computer (as it was suggested last week).

I know, this was off-topic, but as I said, threatened with a bomb is also not nice, I think.

Let me just remind you that I do not actually know you. I had no idea you work/worked in PR. Which is why I answered the questions in the first place. I never considered you an idiot because I believe the best in everyone. I also did not make the bomb comment. Still, I did not know you had experience in this field and that is why I made the comment I did. I had no way of knowing of your experience. I don't read everything people post on this forum. I have no idea if you even mentioned it before, but I am sure you have due to the nature of some of the discussions.

It is. Especially since I have nothing to do with that comment. But, I understand being hurt by comments that others make.

Seriously, WHY has a topic about her height turned into MORE bashing of her PR? Can ANY topic on here run WITHOUT it turning into a "How Crap something to do with Emma is".

I'm starting to get really angry with all of this crap.


Emma is a bit taller than she looks in pictures, i'm 5'1, I would say she was about 5'5.

please don't be upset nor angry. It's not what most of us real Emma fans are thinking at all, it's just this particular someone....
who's more opinionated so to speak.

All on a topic about emma's height. as a matter of fact it's a forum for much younger people in case that wasn't clear anough, and Yes I made that comment about dropping a bomb on your computer but no one called you an idiot. Absolutely no one. Making lists of what you worked on is fine but don't play the victim. You have arguments all over the forum, I wonder why? I apologize for the bomb comment and I will never reply to you again, as most of what you write is negative.
