We all know it’s true: relatable content is what sparks consumer trust and drives purchases.

Super polished, overly scripted videos just don’t cut it anymore. Most consumers now see right through slick advertisements and celebrity endorsements.


For Gen Z in particular (those born after 1996), authenticity is everything.


According to a survey by WPEngine and the Center for Generational Kinetics:

  • 79% of Gen Z stated they trust a company more if the brand images aren’t Photoshopped
  • 84% trust a company more if they use actual customers in their ads


Authentic content — featuring real people and their real words — now plays an absolutely critical role, leading consumers to discover new brands and products.

This type of content also deepens loyalty and trust with the brands people are already fans of.

When it comes to visual content, it must feel real and relatable.

And with the popularity of InstaStories and TikTok, this is especially true for video.



Project Repat collected real mobile videos from their customers and created this authentic, effective video that boosted brand affinity and drove sales. 


But how can a marketer access real videos?

And regularly enough to be able to share fresh content across all of their internal and external marketing channels?

Additionally, how can marketing teams ensure that their user-generated video content is aligned with their distinct and timely marketing objectives?

How can they filter and leverage that raw video so not only is it effective but it’s also on-brand?
