Here are the 3 main qualities that Gen Z values in brands, according to an Instagram shopping exec

Posted: 14 Jan 2020 09:35 AM PST

millennial gen z texting.JPGScott Morgan/Reuters

Gen Z has the potential to completely change the retail industry. And, brands that learn the group's shopping habits could win over this crucial generation of consumers. 

There are three main features that Gen Z values in brands, Instagram Shopping's product lead, Layla Amjadi, said at Business Insider's IGNITION: Redefining Retail conference in New York City on Tuesday.

"What we look at is, well, what's working for them in their shopping experience," Amjadi said at the conference.

Here are three characteristics that Gen Z values in a brand:

1. Brands engaging in real-time culture

Toru Hanai/Reuters

Amjadi said that the ability for a brand to have a broader conversation about a current trend is crucial.

To win over Gen Z, Amjadi said that brands should aim for a nimble content strategy that is aware of larger trends and fads in the world.

"Brands really showing up like your friend and being a part of the conversation is critical for building that relationship with that Gen Z shopper," Amjadi said.



2. Products that resonate

Instagram

Gen Z likes feeling that their products were made with their preferences in mind, Amjadi said.

She gave the example of the polling feature on Instagram, which allows shoppers to vote on items and styles they like.

"Then when the product comes out, it very much feels 'by them,' and that resonates," Amjadi said.

 

 

 

 



3. Authenticity

According to Amjadi, Gen Z wants you to give it to them straight. In other words, this consumer group values authenticity.

"And I think that's really a function of the fact that, even this generation is selling a lot of their own products," Amjadi said, explaining how speaking frankly and conversationally about products is natural when you are selling them yourself.

Comfortable conversation is crucial to Gen Z, and if that is lacking, the brand could appear disingenuous, Amjadi said.

January is 'divorce month' — here's what it costs to get divorced in every US state

Posted: 14 Jan 2020 09:35 AM PST

  • January is commonly known as a month where many people file for divorce.
  • The process, for many, can be costly.
  • GOBankingRates rounded up the average divorce filing fees and attorneys' fees in all 50 US states.
  • California is the most expensive state to file for divorce in, followed by Connecticut and Florida. The least expensive state to get a divorce in is North Dakota.
  • The average cost of getting divorced varies from state to state, but the majority have averages hovering above $10,000.
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

Even though the divorce rate in the US overall is down, divorce filings see an uptick at the start of a new year — so much so that January has been unofficially dubbed "divorce month" in legal circles nationwide.

While there are many concerns to take into account when it comes to divorce, one significant concern is the financial burden accompanying it. The final cost is known to be staggering and is determined by a number of factors including where the divorce is filed and who is hired to handle it.

GOBankingRates analyzed data from DivorceWriter.com and Lawyers.com to determine the average divorce attorneys' fees and filing fees in all 50 states. California, perhaps unsurprisingly, is the most expensive state to file for divorce in, while North Dakota is the least expensive. Most states have a cost above $10,000.

Many states charge a flat fee, but for those that do not, GOBankingRates used the average of local divorce filing fees. The fees delineated below are basic — other factors like shared children or property can raise the total cost of a divorce. In addition to cost information, the latest available divorce rates for each state are included below; this information was sourced from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

Here is the average cost of divorce in each state, arranged in alphabetical order.

  • Sen. Elizabeth Warren rolled out a plan on Tuesday pledging to start forgiving the US's $1.6 trillion in student loan debt on the first day of her presidency without Congress.
  • Last year, Warren put forward a plan to forgive a substantial amount of student loan debt for millions of Americans.
  • Warren now pledges to achieve her student loan forgiveness plan through the Department of Education, citing existing legal powers.
  • The plan would likely run into opposition in Congress, where Republicans and even some Democrats are wary of its high costs.
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren said on Tuesday that she would circumvent Congress and start cancelling the nation's $1.6 trillion in student debt on "day one" as president. She would draw upon her executive power to do so.

Warren's $640 billion loan forgiveness plan — rolled out last year — would slash up to $50,000 in debt for student loan borrowers making less than $100,000. It's also designed to gradually forgive debt for people earning up to $250,000.

Wealthy mothers and fathers are outsourcing basic parenting, spending thousands on everything from playroom consultants to bike-riding tutorials

  • Parents with means are increasingly forgoing hands-on parenting, relying on experts to help with everything from snack time to playing games of tag with their kids.
  • Parents who are too busy to toss a ball with their kids or teach them to ride a bike hire sports coaches for $65 an hour.
  • There is a whole business of "parenting coaches" and "kid concierges" dedicated to making sure the elite's children are being perfectly tended to, and it's on the rise thanks in part to social media, where millennial parents aim to look picture perfect to peers.

When it came to organizing a playroom for her children, Michelle, a stay-at-home mother of two, decided to outsource the task.

The 39-year-old shelled out $2,100 for an expert to come to her hillside home in Los Angeles' Pacific Palisades neighborhood. There, the expert overhauled the space, tossed outdated items, and recommended a list of new toys from luxury shops like Maisonette and Scandibørn, including a $115 wooden vegetable set and a $90 rattan doll bassinet.

  • You can still get the flu after being vaccinated. If you get the shot too early in the year, its effectiveness could wane, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
  • The flu vaccine can take the average healthy adult's immune system up to two weeks to build up enough antibodies for protection, which means you still have a chance of getting the flu within those two weeks.
  • If you have a weakened or impaired immune system your chances of getting the flu are higher, even if you've been vaccinated.
  • Don't confuse the side effects of a flu shot for the flu itself.

When babies make eye contact and what to expect as their eyes develop over the first year of life

  • Eye contact is very important for a child's brain, social, and emotional development. It's one of the key ways we make connections with other human beings.
  • Babies can make eye contact almost immediately after birth. Newborns will be especially attracted to a few specific things, like the color red and heavy contrast.
  • Around four months, babies start to develop more sophisticated visual perception and communication. They should be able to see colors and smile back at you when you make eye contact. 
  • If your baby still cannot make eye contact after one year, it may be time to talk to a doctor.
