Just the other day, Kim Kardashian appeared on the Today Show and was interviewed by Matt Lauer. She and her sisters are more than reality TV stars – they are now a full-fledged brand. In addition to their TV shows, they have a clothing line, cosmetics, perfume, workout videos, a credit card (yes, a Kardashian credit card) and now a book too.
So how did the Kardashians make the leap from reality stars to successful brand?
Kim has a Twitter following of five million and involves those followers in her choices. In her own words she calls Twitter “like the best focus group.”
So is she ahead of her time? You be the judge. Watch the video below.
