Personal Branding Magazine: Dress for Success

25 Oct

Hot off the press: Personal Branding Magazine Issue 14: Dress for Success! Yours truly is featured alongside of many amazing people in the fashion business: Kate White, editor-in-chief of Cosmo Magazine; Joanna Coles, editor-in-chief of Marie Claire; Ann Shoket, editor-in-chief of Seventeen Magazine; and Crosby Noricks from PR Couture.

In this issue I talk about how to brand yourself across social media channels. Here’s a snippet of the article for your reading pleasure:

“You may not be a celebrity, but you could be in social media. It’s called social media branding: using a single social channel, or multiple channels, to establish your personal identity in a community. There are many ways to make people notice your brand, but only a few ways to begin establishing yourself as a brand. Before creating content, it’s important to establish a brand that users will remember.”

“No matter what, embrace your personality and interests; people love to hear from passionate people. When I entered into social media, I knew I had to have passion for my interests and give users content that would benefit them. If not, the community would have no reason to listen to me —and let’s face it, people are selfish and if the content doesn’t benefit them in any way, they won’t be engaged. But if you stay consistent and provide interesting content, then you will begin building a following and eventually become a well-known brand!”

Personal Branding Magazine focuses on how individuals can incorporate branding into their own professional and personal development.  Each issues highlights one or more successful personal brands, in additional to providing advice and strategies from experts.  Celebrities such as Evander Holyfield and MC Hammer, as well as CEO’s and prominent business figures, such as Donald Trump and Jack Welch, have already been highlighted.

Armani Exchange enlisted 90210 star AnnaLynne McCord to act as the brand’s first StyleBRITY.

Armani Exchange had AnnaLynne style 10 looks from the A|X Holiday collection, incorporating her own unique sense of personal style and offering insider fashion tips on the best gifts for the upcoming holiday season.

AnnaLynne remixed and restyled the A|X Holiday collection to create looks that reflect Young Hollywood and LA Style, incorporating the latest trends. Check out some of AnnaLynne’s top choices from A|X that she chose as the perfect gift for the jock, the prep, the good-girl, the bad-girl and more.
