Content Generation Idea: Featuring Major Celebrities
Hello and welcome to today's content generation idea. This one on Featuring Major Celebrities! Now don't go thinking that it's not possible for you not to feature a big celebrity of some kind. I'm going to talk about how you can do that. But don't be afraid to go after those big celebrities because even they can be snagged! Content Generation Idea: Featuring Major Celebrities

Now it might take quite a bit of time and effort on your behalf to actually find a celebrity worth featuring on your site. And most of them will probably say no unless you're willing to pay them nicely for their time. But there's another way you can do it without having to pay a single penny!

What you have to do is look on Amazon for new books that are released. Sometimes these books are released by some famously well known celebs. Basically, just books that a famous celebrity has written. And this is where you can take advantage of that because usually, while they're in the middle of releasing and launching their new book, they'll take all the exposure and publicity they can get!

So what you would have to do (ideally) is purchase their book and then read it (will help!). And then just literally reach out to them and contact them. Tell them that you've read their book and you think it's truly fantastic. Tell them that you would love to interview them on your site/blog.

Now you'll probably need some sort of fairly popular site/blog for them to agree to this. But even if you don't, if you show a lot of passion, they'll still probably take you up on the interview provided it's not one that lasted too long. Especially if it meant their book would get some free exposure/advertising.

And most new book authors will be holding a lot of interviews on all levels and scales anyway. Just to help them get those initial book reviews and advertising for it. So if you hit them up on the right day at the right time and in the right way, it's possible you could get some interview out of them.

And this would make for some really great content for your site or blog! Especially if their book is somewhat or somehow related to your site or blog. Say, if it touches on something within that book that is somehow relatable to you or your site/blog or business in some way.

But as said, the trick is, to catching them while they've just released their book. Since they'll be looking for all the publicity they can get. They'll be more willing to work with you on it compared to any other time. So strick on them while they're young and you'll be in with a much better chance of them saying YES!

Use All New Book Authors

Of course, if you're looking for content generation ideas, this doesn't have to be just for celebrities! Although if you can interview an actual celeb, that will do your site/blog, business some favour certainly! But this can be done for other authors as well. All you have to do is go on Amazon, search for books, and then sort by newest released.

And the good thing about searching for books on Amazon is that you can sort by category. So you can find those newly released books that are in YOUR niche! Here below, I've put a list of the current book categories on Amazon along with the number of books that are within those categories;

  • Arts & Photography (1,647,537)
  • Biographies & Memoirs (522,349)

  • Sports & Outdoors (255,838)
  • Teen & Young Adult (360,144)

You can also sort by

  • Award Winners
  • Bargain Books
  • Best Books of the Month
  • Books in Spanish
  • Children's Books
  • Deals in Books
  • Spring Reading
And my personal favourite "Coming Soon". Why is that my personal favourite? Because this category shows you about books that are going to be published on Amazon soon. And this means you can find out when it's going to be released, buy it, read it and then you can be one of the first people to reach out and contact them about a possible interview.

Remember - in the first days of launching their book, they'll be looking for all the extra publicity, advertising and exposure they can get! So by being one of the first to actually reach out to them and ask them if you can interview them, you'll be more likely to get a resounding yes! As opposed to them saying "No sorry, I've done enough interviews now already."

It's difficult but definitely something that can be done. The problem is that you will only be able to do this if you have a large enough blog, a large enough follower base or you have some great connections that can connect you to these celebrities. If you can manage to get them onto your blog then it will be amazing because a lot of people will love to read more about these celebrities.

This is really awesome for somoene like me that is set to get into fulltime blogging. Catching up with celebrities when they need that limelight can go a long way in generating content for my blog.

Over here the major celebrities that are most interesting are tv stars because they are well known to the public. One fried who writes for a movie magazine has a list of local celebrities with a corresponding note on their origin and career description. What’s interesting is the love life. Isn’t it a good read? I mean the lovelife of celebrities are always exaggerated such that when the truth is written, the reader is surprised.

Interesting idea. I would be concerned with doing this. If you have to write something factual, it will already be in the public domain, unless you have the opportunity to interview the celebrity. However if you decide to embellish your content so it can sound juicy, and attract more readers,there is a chance if the celebrity finds out, they can sue you.This may be a tricky way to generate content.

It depends on the celebrity that you are looking at getting to feature in your work. If it's those that have made a big name and has huge fame, it's definitely going to be very hard to get such celebrity to feature on your work, and even if you get him or her, it's going to be very expensive. Unless you are looking for upcoming celebrities and artist, then it's probably possible.

That's true in the sense that once you are getting a popular star on your work, it is going to work really nice. The fan base is really important as this will guarantee the bigger people visiting your wbesite.

That's a good idea, interviewing major influencers on your niche could cause a lot of interest and may boost your sites reputation. First it would be an interesting article and second it boosts popularity.

I think featuring a major celebrity and taking there interview can be a very effective way of creating great content which is very likely to become popular with the readers in very less time. the only problem in the whole process will be to getting the interview from the celebrity who is very likely to refuse in case you are a newbie and he or she doesn't know you. However, the idea that you have shared on this post is very likely to succeed because you will be approaching the celebrity at the right time when it is not likely that he will refuse you.
