Premium Global Youth Culture Subscription 2008 Includes Label Networks' Primary Data, Analysis, Trending Editorial, Images, Forecasts Covering the Global Youth Culture
Label Networks' Premium Global Youth Culture Subscription is among the most highly sought-after youth culture marketing intelligence + research program in the world. Why? As more brands are discovering, it is youth markets that are clearly at the top of the creative trend pyramid. They are the inherent trend-leaders pushing forward the speed of change in Technology, Fashion, Music, Sports and Communication. The majority of trends are, in essence, a trickle-effect based on global youth culture, coming from the bottom-up—the streets, motivated by utilitarian means, and need for expression--rather than being dictated from the top-down. As more brands are discovering, increased consumer control has levelled the playing field and is changing the way companies need to do business. Our research answers such vital new questions and inspires new thinking.
However, it also takes looking at things globally to know what's really going on. As technology and communication patterns push boundaries across borders, trends move faster, and are influenced from other cultures. Brands today not only need to have research + intelligence about specific local and regional areas, but also from a global perspective in terms of future forecasting. And as more brands move towards becoming “lifestyle” brands, meaning positioning into a variety of different aspects of a person's life and for a longer life-cycle, such youth culture research information is increasingly vital for future success.
Just add up the spending power of 13-25-year-olds: $165 billion in North America; $68 billion in the UK, France, Italy, Spain, and Germany; $72 billion in Japan; and in China, which has an overall national spending power of $3.3 trillion, makes the youth marketplace one of the most vital new target market for global industries.
Inside the Label Networks' Premium Subscription are primary consumer research results derived from talking to thousands of young people across North America, Europe, Japan, and China, plus additional cities and cultural hotspots that emerge as trends changes throughout the course of a year. By reaching into the broadest and most diverse regions, our consumer research results are as authentic, fresh, and as street-level as possible. The research + intelligence not only gives in-depth information about specific topics effecting the youth culture landscape, but also provides the basis for feed-forward ideas such as where things are headed and why across cultures. This is one reason why even most intuitive insider brands, who base decisions primarily on instinct, also subscribe—to help push instinct forward.
