Things are slow, really slow, right now for most celebrities.
Many movie and TV production sets are still on full or limited lockdown. And viewer numbers for awards shows like the Oscars, Grammys and Golden Globes are at all-time lows. Celebs not only feel forgotten. They have a lot of time on their hands.
That's why you should be contacting them now to convince them to endorse your book or project. With little to do, celebs are staying in touch with their fans more than ever on social media. If just one of them tells thousands, maybe even a million, adoring fans about you on Facebook or Instagram, that could be the jolt that sends sales for your book, course, or speaking gigs skyrocketing.
David Friedman, a first-time author, convinced celebrities including John Travolta, Suzanne Somers, Denise Austin and Joy Bauer to endorse his book, "Food Sanity."
The endorsements helped him sell more than 41,000 books in his first week alone. And he has a 90 percent success rate getting them to say "yes."
