Evolution of a brand
As you start to establish yourself within this market your brand will eventually evolve grow and mature. This is natural and allow it to happen your foundations like passion your mission, slogans and statements will stay the same if they where given the proper time to create at the start. But everything else will start be improved as you will now be more aware of all you assets and know how best to utilise them. Your assets by the way are your creativity, passion, logos, slogans, statements, content, following, connections and overall web presence.
Regardless of the up and down roller coaster that’s the global economy. The fashion industry itself continues to be an industry that’s worth billions globally, and continues to grow at a healthy rate.
“The global fashion industry is estimated to be worth over 1 Trillion Euro, or about 2% of the value of the world economy. To put it in context, the global pharmaceutical industry, which supplies all the medicines in the world, is valued at about €600 Billion, making it just over half the size of the fashion industry”
How Do You Capitalize
Networking is an essential part of business
Social Media tools such as LinkedIn can allow individuals build their capital. Oftentimes, when looking for a job, or business it’s not what you know, but who you know that makes the difference”. “Networking skills are of critical importance to us all because roughly 80 percent of all available jobs or business opportunities are not posted in classified ads or on Internet job boards”
