  1. Hi! Thanks for the question.

    Please take note that before providing a rating; please ask for

    clarification if you will need further assistance in the answers I

    have provided below.

    The Trendwatching.com website provides some very good articles about

    consumer products marketing trends. They even report updates for some

    of these trends. Here are some of their observations.

    1. Branded Brands

    ?BRANDED BRANDS means you will get a pizza from Pizzeria Uno on an

    American Airlines flight. And onboard perks offered by United Airlines

    include Starbucks Coffee, Mrs. Fields Cookies and even a McDonald?s

    ?Friendly Skies Meal?, including the ubiquitous promo-toy.?

    ?Branded Brands?

    2. Customer Made

    ?Mind you, CUSTOMER-MADE is NOT plain feedback, it's not

    Do-It-Yourself, it's not customization, it's not even personalization,

    as all of these happen after companies have decided what the basics

    are, which products and services and experiences they're willing to

    hand over to consumers, who can then (at best) modify certain

    elements, change a color, replace a cover. That's still pretty much a

    one-way conversation, business as usual.?

    ?Customer-Made?

    http://www.trendwatching.com/trends/CUSTOMER-MADE.htm

    3. Curated Consumption

    ?CURATED CONSUMPTION is behind magazines morphing into catalogues,

    which then morph into eclectic stores, it's behind DJs, restaurant

    critics, opinionated bloggers, and rap stars giving consumers access

    to their playlists, their cribs, their top 10 lists.?

    ?Curated Consumption?

    http://www.trendwatching.com/trends/CURATED_CONSUMPTION.htm

    4. Experienced Consumption

    ??consumption validated by a framework of excuse-experiences, to not

    only entice consumers to spend, but also to provide them with a

    personal alibi??

    ?EXCUSUMPTION?

    http://www.trendwatching.com/trends/2003/02/EXCUSUMPTION.html

    5. Insperiences

    ?Basically, in a consumer society and outside world dominated by

    experiences, preferably branded, designed, themed and curated to the

    nines, the INSPERIENCES trend represents consumers' desire to invite

    brands offering experiences exclusive to the (semi) public domain, to

    set up shop within their own domestic domain.?

    ?Insperiences?

    http://www.trendwatching.com/trends/INSPERIENCE.htm

    5. Pop-Up Retail

    ??these initiatives have a tendency to pop up unannounced, quickly

    draw in the crowds, and then disappear or morph into something else,

    adding to retail the fresh feel, exclusivity and surprise that

    galleries, theatres and Cirque du Soleil-adepts have been using for

    years.?
