Last month, Kris Jenner told WWD that social media ‘is the fastest and most controlled way to get the message out’ when talking about the family’s business empire, which encompasses TV, fashion and other industries.
‘When we first started, there was no Instagram or Snapchat or other social media platforms,’ she said a month after the family announced their longtime E! series Keeping Up With the Kardashians was ending.
She added, ‘The world has changed. Now there are so many, the viewer doesn’t have to wait three or four months to see an episode. We can give them all of the information anyone would ever want to know in real time.
‘The consumer gets to see the products the girls are working on in real time, and they know we’re going to get it out the door pretty quickly. The girls want them to be part of the journey to keep them engaged.’
