I’m guessing that toward the end of December you’re probably running low on business cards because you’ve been out around town, wheeling deals, going out for cocktails with potential clients, and of course stopping by countless Christmas Parties.

You’ve mingled under mistletoe, made friends by the fire side, and chatted while roasting Chestnuts.

You’ve just given out your last business card and now that guy you wanted to talk to all night is headed your way.


Get creative this holiday season and when he asks for your number to plan an ice skating date, show him how tech savvy you are and trade your details 21st century style–

Era of the Social Consumer II: Bridging the World with Sample Sale

By: Kelly Ahern, guest blogger

“As brands become more social and in turn, as experiences are socialized, the ability to forge emotional connections is instrumental in cultivating community development, loyalty, and advocacy.”

–Brian Solis

In a recent post, I discussed the emergence of successful private sale sites and what their newfound dominance means to the world of social commerce.

Membership to exclusive invite-only sample sites have been all the rage lately; enabling brands to make their customers feel beyond special.

Fashionistas have united under the enticing spell cast out by luxury brands peddling their coveted items at outrageously discounted prices. A simple divulging of personal information; such as an email address and password, allows trendy shoppers to enjoy a shopping spree of epic proportions from the comfort of their own home. Gone are the days of crowded city sample sales and the need to camp out along your favorite boutique’s sidewalk. [Read more…]

By: Amanda Montgomery, guest blogger

Each year, countless students enter into highly competitive design programs in universities around the world with the intention to develop an invaluable skill set that ‘supposedly’ lays a strong creative foundation and will help them to become better professionals.

Couture Dreams via Jessica Simpson and Her Billion-Dollar Fashion Empire

By: Kelly Ahern, guest blogger

When you think of Jessica Simpson, what comes to mind? Daisy Duke, Nick Lachey or the controversial –yet hysterical– tuna versus chicken comment, perhaps? Needless to say she hasn’t always been treated with the utmost respect; her reputation, lifestyle and image has consistently been mocked.

Naturally these preconceived notions and varying media criticisms leave many to believe that she’s nothing more than a pretty face—with her sweet southern charm and girl-next-door charisma; we tend to find it hard to believe that Jessica Simpson in fact is a branding powerhouse.

As she sits at the helm of a nearly $1 billion [Read more…]
