Brands Ask Consumers To Rate And Influence Upcoming Product Lines [Future Of Retail]
Krush is an online platform that lets companies like Nike and Oakley get feedback about potential new designs.
Our latest Future Of Retail Report looks at the trend of Crowdsourced Product Range. One manifestation of this trend can be seen in Krush, an internet startup that lets brands tap into feedback offered by consumers and fans to predict demand for their upcoming lines. On the online platform, users can browse for future styles and products and vote for their favorite items online, which helps brands make decisions about which items to produce.
Users receive rewards for their contributions, and brands can tap into Krush’s database to see detailed breakouts of consumer preferences by product type, features, and geography. Aimed at the 16–24 demographic, users can provide feedback on items from big brands like Nike SB, Oakley, and Quiksilver, and emerging brands like Skullcandy, 10Deep, and Obey.
To move beyond novelty activations and one-time gimmicks, PSFK equips marketers with the insights, templates and analytics to develop high-reach campaigns that meet consumers in the moment, collect and build upon experiential data, and build scale through content creation.
