Let's say I have a $50,000 budget to do this. That's not enough for a national commercial (which averages at about $150,000), but it's got to be enough to get respectably famous somehow...suggestions welcome!
Please don't tell me it's all about social media...because the designers I mentioned got famous way before social media. I think social media is good for creating a kind of "buzz" or "trend", but doesn't contribute to the type of lasting, respected, almost permanent fame that designers like Chanel and Versace have. Social media stardom is usually temporary...it fades over time and isn't as respected (even the most popular YouTuber is not on the same level as Coco Chanel).
Thank you for your time and ideas!
P.S. - I am willing to work hard! I didn't ask what was the easiest way to make my brand famous, I just asked for one that I could do for $50,000 in 6 months. I don't care how hard I have to work during that time period!
