Consumers go to great lengths to meet status-setting brand demands

Implications - Given the cultural shift that values experience over ownership, brands have begun to market products and services around exclusivity by asking consumers to "prove themselves" in some way. Often resulting in a memorable experience, this desire for brand-approved status showcases the consumer desire to cultivate communities around their interests, which is especially relevant to Millennials and even Gen Z. In addition to highlighting the ever-present pursuit of status regardless of what form it's in, this progression demonstrates that consumers are seeking a collaborative relationship with brands that allow them to contribute their own skills and expertise.
