Why does GenZ love communities?

Valeria Henkel

As GenZ continues to come of age in a world of boundless information, they are proving to be a generation of educated and discerning consumers. No longer content with blindly accepting what they are told, they seek knowledge and ownership in their lives. This shift has led them to rely on their peers and trusted communities for advice and recommendations, rather than simply trusting outsiders.

In fact, GenZ's trust in others has hit an all-time low, with a staggering 9 out of 10 individuals trusting themselves more than anyone else. They are turning inwards to educate themselves and use their instincts as a guiding force. Even when it comes to brands, their trust is 7% lower compared to millennials, making it increasingly challenging for businesses to earn their loyalty.

💡 However, there's a powerful tool that brands can use to gain affinity and loyalty from this generation – communities.

Communities provide GenZ with a safe and supportive space where they feel a sense of belonging and empowerment. These platforms allow them to connect with like-minded individuals, learn from one another's experiences, and collaborate to make a difference.

🎯 For brands aiming to connect with GenZ, embracing the power of communities is key. By acknowledging and amplifying the opinions and perspectives of Gen Z's peers and community members, brands can harness the influence of peer recommendations. User-generated content and referral incentives become invaluable tools to engage this generation effectively.

👉 In essence, by tapping into the potential of communities, brands can seamlessly align themselves with the future alongside GenZ. This alignment builds trust and earns their loyalty in the process. So, let's prioritize building communities that empower and engage the next generation of consumers!
