Every great youth marketing campaign and content needs a hook to make the experience drive results. The hook needs to be memorable and capture the attention of young audiences. The best hooks with tweens and teens center around the "cool factor" of your product or content and what you are doing to make them look good amongst peers. Create experiences that are fresh and authentic to your brand. Shoot for NBD's (never-been-done) when possible, thoughtful parodies are timeless, and modern remakes of anything with nostalgic connection are in the here and now. Great hooks need to inspire brand engagement with little or no explanation and help create a deeper connection with your youth audience segments.
Pro Tip: remember when it comes to digital content, Gen Z read even less than their Millennial predecessors.
