This topic is going to be all about how to brand yourself + find your dream aesthetic as a SW'r & why it's important!
So, baby strippers and SW's with a "what the fuck vibe am I???" crisis or wanting to rebrand -- this is for you ♡
☆ WHAT IS BRANDING? ☆
When we think of “branding,” we don’t usually think of people. More so companies- Nike, Chanel, Apple, Glossier, Angel Candy *wink wink*. But the truth is, personal branding can make a HUGE difference in our work lives. To prove this point, here are some women that we love:
Anna Nicole Smith
NOW! Stop and think about each of these women- you immediately think of the “brand” that they’ve cultivated. You automatically know who their fans are, how they dress, and the lifestyle and ideals they promote.
Branding is the IDEA, the VIBE, and the FEELING a person, product, or service gives us.
You may now be thinking- ok, so what? How does this apply to me and the industry?
☆ WHY IT IS IMPORTANT ☆
Do we believe that any of those women only is the BRAND who is portrayed in the media? Of course not!
Branding one’s public image will always be idealistic and involve some fantasy. It’s all part of the show! Think of your work persona as your “public image.” And what are you doing at work, whether you strip or do porn or cam? Selling a fantasy, and putting on a show!
This is a really unspoken thing in the industry and I personally have no idea why that's the case, but if if I knew this was a thing YEARS ago I would've saved myself so many weird phases / "aesthetics" that never suited me 😅
Knowing your personal brand / aesthetic will help you:
✨ STAND OUT in a highly competitive work environment
✨ FEEL CONFIDENT which truly is the keystone of success for us
✨ MAKE MORE MONEY, makes work easier in the ways of knowing who your clientele is!
✨ NICHE MARKET ONLINE, When you have an OnlyFans and know your colors / outfits / vibe, an audience who is into that will naturally gravitate towards you! Are they online gamers? Guys bored at home dreaming of a girl next door?
POINT IS: the more you know your brand and aesthetic - the more success you will have ( & I swear mental sanity bc stressing over this was exhausting lmao ) !
