Figuring out which celebrities to get your product to can be a challenge for most entreprenettes.
You are probably asking yourself one, or possibly all, of the following questions:
How do I know if my target market likes this one or that?
What if I make a mistake and spend a lot of money sending freebies to the wrong people?
How do I know if they'll even like it, or wear it?
Yes, all of them can be true, but if you really understand your consumer (aka target market) then you will get closer than you think with each try.
One way to get on the fast track to the next "hottie" is to see who the Oscar contenders are and if they appeal to your target market, then get on it and send them something now, before they are to hot to touch and the phones are tied up.
