Critiquing Kay Kay's Fashion's Digital Marketing Strategy

Hey everyone! So, I always like to provide you interesting content for you all to view and I am sorry that I have not blogged in a while. Therefore, I decided to do something really different. I will be critiquing Kay Kay’s Fashion’s digital media presence on this post! I think that it is really important to always practice self-reflection and maybe my transparency can help someone. So, I am going to first talk about the pros and cons of Kay Kay’s Fashion’s digital media presence. First of all, I think that Kay Kay’s Fashion is doing a great job of being on several different social media platforms because this will allow the company to reach more people. Second of all, Kay Kay’s Fashion posts images that are high-quality to its social media platform which is great since people like to view high-quality images. Third, Kay Kay’s Fashion has a very high engagement level with its audience on social media. Next, I believe that Kay Kay’s Fashion could work on consistently posting at least once every day because we do not post every day or consistently. To fix this issue, I recommend that Kay Kay’s Fashion has a schedule that states when (including what time) it will post to social media. Finally, I believe that Kay Kay’s Fashion could post more posts that will spawn more engagement with its audience. Therefore, I recommend that Kay Kay’s Fashion should host some contests and giveaways or even post posts that ask its audience questions. My third recommendation for Kay Kay’s Fashion is to consistently and actively read up on ways to improve their digital presence because one can never learn too much!

Kay Kay's Fashion's Headbands!!!!!!!!

Kay Kay’s Fashion has finally released headbands! These headbands are amazing because they are made with elastic so they will fit all head types. They are also not too tight on the head which means that they are comfortable for one to wear all day. These headbands are nice because they can be worn in many different situations. Kay Kay’s Fashion’s customers are very busy people and they need pieces that will work in a variety of different situations. These headbands are great because they can be worn for working out, a casual situation, a formal situation, and even in the office! In addition, one can make these headbands be the statement piece of their outfit. For example, one can simply throw on a black t-shirt and an old pair of jeans, and these headbands and then the headbands will make the “plain old outfit: look chic. 

I think that it is very important to support local businesses. Kay Kay’s Fashion’s headbands are sewn in the Metro-Detroit area and the fabric is bought from Mali. Therefore, by supporting Kay Kay’s Fashion, you are supporting Detroit and a village in Mali! Finally, I also love how Kay Kay’s Fashion ships free to every country in the world which makes it easy for everyone to have great pieces in their closet. Please click on the videos below to see the many ways that you can wear your headbands! Feel free to send us pictures of yourself wearing the headband!

SYMON met with KAY KAY and spilled the tea on what it’s like being in the music industry. Here’s what SYMON had to say to Kay Kay while wearing a gorgeous caped dress by Kamilla Purshie.
KAY KAY: How are you liking Detroit? Is this your first time here?
SYMON:  This is my first time in Detroit! I have been to Michigan before but I was way up north where it is a lot quieter. So, it is great to be here and it is very beautiful and it is great to have such amazing friends here that have been showing me some really cool local spots.
KAY KAY: So glad you are a fan of our city. We are happy to have you. Since you are a host on SiriusXM Hits 1, I have to ask you, who is your favorite artist (or artists) at the moment and what song (or songs) are you obsessed with right now?
SYMON:  I am obsessed with Ariana Grande’s album Sweetener. I think it is just an incredible body of work and her voice is incredible.
KAY KAY: As an artist, what was the hardest part about breaking into the industry?
SYMON:  I still feel like I am breaking into the industry. I feel like you are never quite where you want to be and you are always aiming to be more successful or accomplished. There is also competition with yourself as well. It is good to be grateful for where you are and I am really grateful with where I am right now and I am excited to move forward!
KAY KAY: How did you get started?
SYMON:  I started a pop-rock band in my garage when I was sixteen and it ended up being on TV and Radio Disney. Before I knew it, I was traveling all over the place and I got signed with Sony and I have had two Top 40 hit singles in the last two years.
KAY KAY: What challenges have you had to overcome?
SYMON:  It can be challenging to get people to believe in you, but it really only takes one person or a few people. For example, one of the heads of SiriusXM believed in me and my boss at SiriusXM for the station that I am on believed in me and gave me this opportunity. To get this break to talk to millions and millions of people, makes me feel so grateful every day.
KAY KAY: What advice would give to those who are trying to break into the music industry?
SYMON:  Whatever your craft is, make sure you become the best you can be. Also, learn from others and work hard! Social media is also great to get a lot of people to see you and you can even create your own brand on YouTube. You can put yourself on!
KAY KAY: Can you spill the tea about any of your upcoming projects and music?
SYMON: I am focusing a lot on my hosting and moving a lot of that onto television, so wait and see!

Chatting with Christina Milian

Christina Milian

Kay Kay's Way was honored to talk with Milian about her upcoming projects, her jewelry line, and even her bestie Karrueche while we were at the Pink Carpet Gala. 

KAY KAY: Hello, how are you doing?
Milian:  I am doing well and I am happy to be here in Detroit. Detroit has been really good to me. George and his family have been fantastic to me and it is really great to be here at the Pink Carpet Gala for a good cause.
KAY KAY: So, you recently developed a collaborative collection with George the Jeweler (House of Fine Gold’s collection, ReMIXd). How would you describe this line?
Milian:  I would describe our line as classic pieces that are expressive, young and edgy but at the same time are pieces that you can wear forever. The pieces are 14 karat gold and we have varieties of rose-gold, white-gold, and yellow-gold. Also, we are now starting to build a new collection that is more affordable. Many people want to be able to throw something on with their Fashion Nova outfit so we wanted to cater to that fan base as well. We feel very fortunate that people have invested in our company and are buying our pieces and these are pieces that they can and will wear forever.
KAY KAY: I am wearing a piece from your collection so I can definitely vouch for that!
Milian:  I see, represent!
KAY KAY: You have been super successful in the entertainment industry for so long. How does it feel to be a part of the fashion industry?
Milian:  Being a part of the fashion industry is fun to me. I started a clothing line a couple of years ago so it was fun to start there. I have learned a lot with the clothing industry and now doing jewelry it is something to add on top of it. I have always worn lots of accessories and I have grown to appreciate fine jewelry as I have gotten older and I would love to pass that on to my daughter. I love this business!
KAY KAY: Can you please spill the tea about any upcoming projects you have including the new Hallmark Christmas movie?
Milian:  I was shooting the movie in Vancouver and I literally just got done shooting the new movie yesterday! The movie is called Memories of Christmas and it will be out at the beginning of December so please keep an eye out for that! I am one of the first actresses of color to be the star of a holiday movie for Hallmark and it is so beautiful and it gives me chills when I think about it. I also did a television show called The Oath where I play a cop and the second season of The Oath will be out next year on Sony Crackle!
KAY KAY: You and Karrueche Tran are super close and she is your best friend so we would love to give a shout out to Karrueche because we are so proud of her!
Milian:  I watched all of this happen with her and I get chills over her success. There was something special about her when I met her. She is a star and you cannot pull a star down. She has always had a very positive attitude and she has grown and I love the woman that she has become.
KAY KAY: We love seeing women of color killing it in the industry.
Milian: It is very beautiful and it is a long way coming. I have been in the industry for decades and I have seen the lack of opportunities out there for women of color. However, there are many women of color like Angela Bassett, Sanaa Lathan, Jennifer Lopez, and Kerry Washington who have broken so many barriers and have helped pave the way and change television and entertainment. People are now recognizing that we all need each other and there is an audience that would love to see people of color on television.
