Kylie Jenner understood that in order to build and leverage her social media following, which currently stands at around 110 million, she was just as much a brand as she was a person. She learned to market herself in order to market her products. Posting every few hours, Jenner shares pouting selfies and snippets of her glamorous life – all featuring her own products.
And it’s important to remember at this stage, that each of those 110 million followers on social media is a potential customer. That’s a lot of potential sales that can result from just a few minutes spent posting pictures on Instagram or sharing her thoughts on Twitter.
In fact, Jenner has leveraged her social media accounts and built her personal brand so astronomically that she is now on the cusp of becoming a billionaire. But more than that, she has become somewhat of a phenomenon, she is now a household name.
