One thought on “Reality TV Star Turned Billionaire . . . Kylie Jenner Has Officially Conquered the Business World.

  1. This was very interesting to read about the launch of her product. It is informative to see where she is utilizing most of her advertising for her products. Instagram and YouTube is where I believe a majority of her audience is. Knowing your audience is always key to good product promotion and publicity. Also, using her famous family members to also talk about her product serves as a great way to promote as well. Using them as brand ambassadors only helps attract more people to her brand because people feel that they share a relationship with them through the show as well. I totally wish I was at that launch party! Great analysis Regan, it was very insightful and a great read!
