Market Validation:

Media industry analysts predicted a slowdown in the growth of the advertising sector in 2023. Investments in creator-economy startups plummeted by a significant 79%, compared to the same quarter in 2022. In response to economic challenges, major social networks are scaling back on creator programs and experiencing company-wide layoffs, illustrating a challenging landscape for the industry.

With that being said, social media is still key for businesses:

  • 81% report that social media increases accountability for businesses

  • 77% of businesses use social media to reach customers

  • 76% of social media users have purchased something they saw on social media

So it’s up to businesses  to find a new avenue to innovate online, and that path is experiential marketing.

Our Target Demo

Our target is an expert at short-form social media videos, and perhaps an aspiring creator themselves. They are primarily Gen A and Gen Z,  in school or recent graduates. They grew up with social media, check their feeds multiple times a day, and love Challenges.

They are also Millennials (moms, gamers, dance, food, comedy, cosplayers, athletes, etc.) who were at the forefront of the creation of social media. They are looking for a new platform, after the recent waves of issues with the major social networks, such as Instagram trying to offboard this generation, to onboard Gen A and Z, in hopes to out do TikTok, as well as the shadowbanning and the oversaturation of unwanted content. This generation is fed up with the state of social media and looking for alternative options.
