Sample YouTube Pro Trends

Each YouTube PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online youtube articles, videos and images. Examples:

Condensed Protein Consumers keep portion control top-of-mind when it comes to red meat Implications - Consumers are searching for reduced or alternative forms of red meat to relieve the guilt brought on by the health food movement. Besides easier delivery and consumption, these reformatted meals suggest that steak is an indulgence that can be portioned for both healthier consumption and on-the-go enjoyment.

Multitasking TV Television no longer functions as a standalone entertainment piece Implications - For today's consumer who is constantly engaged in multimedia content, television on its own will no longer suffice. As a result, televisions are incorporating multi-screen elements and the ability to surf online, play music and more through a device once reserved specifically for viewing simple programming.

Self-Created Subscription Consumer-made content is treated as regular paid programming Implications - The revolution of television has seen a few changes, including a shift toward cord-cutting in the form of paid subscriptions; the consumer-created content world is following suit. This shows the prevalence of independent online content. Additionally, self-created subscriptions show that the appeal of for-the-people-by-the-people content is no longer limited to just Millennials.

Emoji Branding Younger consumers respond enthusiastically to visual branding tactics Implications - The landscape of communication has been radically transformed by the introduction of the emoji. Brands hoping to appeal to younger, tech-savvy audiences, such as college students and millennials, have begun incorporating emojis into their branding strategy. Consumers are not only responding to the social media reference, but to the streamlined nature of the emoji, suggesting that an uncluttered aesthetic and intuitive approach is paramount when it comes to branding towards the younger generation.

Student Life Spoofing College students turn to online video to communicate common stresses Implications - Seeking an outlet for expression, college students are turning to online videos to communicate common annoyances associated with student life. Referencing fears of debt, failing and disappointing family, students are using online platforms to humorize traditionally heavy subject matters. This reflects a turn toward more social forms of handling stress, particularly for those of a younger age range.

Covert Campaigning Brands create faux accounts on social platforms to engage consumers Implications - Moving beyond traditional social media engagement, brands are turning to unsuspecting online tactics to add intrigue to the brand-consumer experience. Creating faux profiles and accounts, brands are going undercover to engage with consumers in a more lighthearted yet approachable manner. This covert tactic reflects a need to not only engage with consumers online, but to do so in a way that fosters a real and authentic connection with those involved.

Sophisticating Social Brands elevate consumer content into social media art Implications - Using social media, particularly visual platforms, has become nothing short of an art form. Platforms like Instagram are encouraging users to not only share their content, but share it in a way that requires craftiness and creativity. Brands that help people elevate their own content, either by increasing the quality or adding to the level of artistry, foster closer connections with consumers.
