Where to innovate
Your competition just released a new product. It was starting to get buzz on social media and then a celebrity plugged it unprompted on Instagram and the mentions lit up. Is this the Next Big Thing, or is it the next Not a Thing Anymore? Will this have sustained scale? To put it another way, will this product “tip” from niche to mainstream and should you be developing an equivalent?
Brands help consumers hire good health habits
There are many reasons people try to eat healthy. Some people try because they have to, for instance if they have a health issue. Others do so because they “want to” (e.g., they want to feel better in a swimsuit.) Each of these can pose an opportunity for a brand or product to fill that need, if the brand can learn some new habits, too.
