Brands, agencies, rights holders, teams, leagues and other marketers worldwide can now measure, compare and leverage the impact of celebrities both locally and globally across 13 markets, including 9 of the top 10 countries with the highest GDP

New York, May 28, 2013 – REPUCOM, the global leader in sports marketing research, and The Marketing Arm, a next-generation promotions agency considered the largest buyer of celebrity talent, today announced the global launch of the Celebrity DBI, an independent index that quantifies and qualifies consumer perceptions of celebrities, representing the views of approximately 1.5 billion consumers.

Created by The Marketing Arm in the U.S. in 2006, the Celebrity DBI is regarded as the industry standard for celebrity evaluation. In partnership with The Marketing Arm, a marketing and promotions agency, REPUCOM, the global leader in sports marketing research, is spearheading the Celebrity DBI’s international expansion into 12 international markets: Argentina, Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Mexico, Russia, Spain, Turkey and the United Kingdom.  The expanded index will feature more than 5,000 celebrities, including athletes, film and TV stars, musical performers, news pundits, personalities and more.

“The Celebrity DBI provides a data-driven approach to help quantify celebrity clout and marketability,” said Paul Smith, REPUCOM’s Global CEO.  “The data has been fundamental to guiding the decision making behind hundreds of endorsement deals. REPUCOM is eager to equip international markets with key insights into the celebrity landscape that will assist marketers in strategic business decisions.”

The Celebrity DBI is the only global celebrity evaluation service designed to provide superior brand- relevant insights.  It offers:

  • Realistic celebrity awareness assessment – through image and name recognition.
  • Brand-centric celebrity attributes – identified by brands and agencies as the key drivers determining a celebrity’s ability to influence brand affinity and consumer purchase intent.
  • Comprehensive online database – search over 5,000+ celebrities
  • Segmentation – ability to segment data by key demographic filters, including market, age, gender, and income level.
  • Robust survey pool –  representative sample consumer panel across 13 international markets, representing the views of more than 1.5 billion people
  • Multiple analysis options – ability to compare celebrities
  • Customizable surveys upon request – meeting individual demands of brands, including global research and specific brand questions.

“With the rapid globalization and on-demand information access, brand marketers look at universal, global impact and specific regional and local points of view,” said Jeff Chown, president of The Marketing Arm’s talent practice.  “To help our clients meet these needs, we’re excited to entrust REPUCOM, the best in the business when it comes to market research, with the Celebrity DBI’s global expansion.”

The Celebrity DBI helps strategically identify individuals who will enhance brand messaging initiatives and maximize ROI by evaluating a celebrity’s awareness, appeal and relevance to a brand’s image and their influence on consumer buying behaviour.

Consumers in nationally representative samples within each country evaluate celebrities across eight key metrics: Appeal, Aspiration, Awareness, Breakthrough, Endorsement, Influence, Trendsetter and Trust. Users can evaluate overall celebrity impact in a local market, across multiple markets and globally; track fluctuations in influence of a celebrity over time; compare multiple celebrities across multiple markets; and view the aggregate global influence of celebrities.
