Walking out of the studio the other night, I ran into a professional recording artist (who shall remain nameless) who told me that they had just gotten back from an all day conference centered around Branding in the Music Industry. Companies like Tiffany & Co. Black Berry, Sprint, different clothing lines as well as their record label were all said to be in attendance. They told me that they were asked questions by different companies about the importance of branding within the music industry and the affects of it. Of course I found this to be CBBlog gold and could not wait to share this info with you guys. There seem as if there was some branding analysis going on at the event as well, being that I was told that there was a picture of Beyonce projected on the screen during the conference accompanied by a few Blurbs which specific details are unknown to me but I can only assume they were under the context of branding.
Needless to say how apparent and necessary Branding is becoming within the entertainment industry excites me. Reason being is that I’ve been observing the importance of this from the early 2000’s and the difference in success and recognition from the entertainers who implemented this and the ones who did not, and it truly makes a vast difference. It really separates a star from the rest to the fans and the industry, it creates tons more opportunities for artistic outlets, partnerships, sponsorships and more. So taking the time out to learn how to brand yourself and to find the most fitting brand for you as an entertainer and implanting it properly can make all the difference in the world.
