Brands & Community

Gen Z Broke The Marketing Funnel

Many Gen Z customers expect more than just a product from brands; they seek a sense of belonging and community. According to Archrival, 54% of Gen Zs prefer brands that make them feel like they’re part of a community. Essentially, brands considered “cool” are those that go beyond product offerings to engage this generation.

Companies such as Madhappy, Refy, and Rhode not only offer their products but also foster community by organizing in-person events and providing resources for mental health support.

“Our hope has always been to create a brand that goes deeper than something transactional. We believe that the beauty of Madhappy is the ideology, the embrace of a shared perspective and a way of looking at the world,” says founder Peiman Raf.

Main takeaway: “Brands need to be where the people are: traversing the infinite loop of inspiration, exploration, community and loyalty.”.

Marketing & Events

National Banana Chiquita Day

For National Banana Day, Chiquita Bananas seized the opportunity to make the day all about their brand. They celebrated alongside the Miami community with a vibrant event in Wynwood, featuring live DJ sets, local mural painting, a banana-themed food truck, dance classes, fitness sessions, and giveaways. This event was a fantastic opportunity for the brand and consumers to come together, creating a deeper sense of community.

“As the leading brand in the banana industry, it’s fitting for Chiquita to claim this day! Our mission is to infuse every day with happy and healthy energy, mirroring the essence of our brand and our iconic Chiquita Yellow,” said Juliana Furlan, Chief Marketing Officer for Chiquita North America.
