6 Ways To Contact Celebrities

Celebrities can make your YouTube videos go viral. For instance, YouTuber Ray William Johnson invited celebrities such as Robin Williams, Bobby Lee and Jason Biggs to be a part of his YouTube videos. Needless to say, this drove millions of viewers to his channel.

Most people find it difficult to get in touch with celebrities. Daunting maybe, but not impossible.

Below are six ways to contact the rich and famous:

1. Email

Use reliable email finders to get celebrity contact details. You can use Anymail finder to look up emails of famous people working in any company. All you have to do is type the name of the person and the domain name in the toolbar search.  

I just found the email address of Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon.

2. Twitter

Most celebs manage a Twitter account to connect with fans. Famous personalities may even have their agents or publicists posting tweets. Thus, use Twitter as a go-to source to contact celebrities.

The main concern with Twitter is your tweet may go unnoticed among hundreds of others. Therefore, send a tweet when a celebrity is active online to get heard.

3. LinkedIn

Use LinkedIn to contact leading experts, CEOs, entrepreneurs, politicians, doctors, professors, journalists, scientists and other professionals.

Use InMail to get in touch with anyone on LinkedIn. The flipside to using this feature is, LinkedIn requires you to have a paid premium account.

4. Agent

You need to dig deep to find contact details of agencies or individuals representing celebs. Thus, use personal connections and referrals to get in touch with agents.

5. Official websites

Most celebrities have an official website to promote themselves. Look for a contact form and post your message.

Note: Agents or publicists usually operate official celebrity websites. So your communication may not reach the A-lister directly.

6. Facebook

Contact celebrities via Facebook messenger. Look for a celebrity’s official Facebook page and shoot them a message.

I managed to interview Philippe Petit, the French high-wire artist who walked between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center. I wrote to Mr. Petit on his Facebook page after the release of  “The Walk” by Robert Zemeckis. He was driving publicity for the movie through interviews with media organisations, blogs and journalists. Hence, I took advantage of the situation and reached out to him.

Voila, I received a response from the man himself.
