The pandemic has given rise to the ‘insperience’ economy as customers look for new ways to be entertained virtually at home. As the market continues to rapidly grow, predicted to be worth £168 million over the next 12 months (Barclaycard, 2020), brands are launching new influencer partnerships and seasonal virtual events to stand out from the competition and reach new customers.
US wellness brand Peloton has launched a multi-year partnership with music artist Beyoncé to curate fitness classes for its members. The Beyoncé-themed fitness classes are expected to be high in demand as Beyoncé is one of the most requested artists for Peloton’s playlists. The brand partnership also aims to boost the number of members joining the fitness subscription service as it appeals to a new customer base.
UK department store John Lewis & Partners are launching a range of free and paid-for activities online to help customers prepare for Christmas.
