From TikTok To #10YearChallenge: Your Definitive Trendspotting Checklist

Tell me if this sounds familiar – you were mindlessly scrolling through the Facebook feed and just as you were about to start your internal struggle between “just a few more minutes” and “I need to start getting things done” –  a post catches your attention with its witty and relatable content that perks you up for that moment. To your surprise it was not a post by Jared (the meme lord you knew back in university) or some entertainment site, but rather it was a brand advertisement. Hold up, advertisements are now entertaining? Look how far we’ve come.

Most brands are now trying to rid the stigma of mainstream advertising and move into creatives that are interesting, trendy, and relatable. But with the ever changing internet ecosystem, we can never quite pinpoint what’s the next big thing – after all we are living in a world where an egg can garner more Instagram likes than Kylie Jenner. While these moments are hardly predictable, savvy marketers would quickly ride on these fleeting opportunities to engage with their brand followers. However this is easier said than done; most content creators we’ve spoken to struggle to differentiate a worthy trend from a fleeting fad will not stay relevant for long.

This is why Circus Social thinks it’s about time that content creators have a framework that they can rely on to gauge the worthiness of each of these trends – so that your brand is able to leverage on the organic buzz effectively.
