What is a lifestyle brand?
There are as many potential lifestyle niches as there are people, but if you’re looking into this from a business perspective, you’ve hopefully decided your product appeals to a larger audience than one.
But there are always questions about what makes for a lifestyle - is it reserved for sporting goods, sustainable products, or health foods?
Spoiler alert! The answer is no.
A lifestyle brand doesn’t need to represent such a huge part of the life of their customer (though many do), they simply need to cater for a part of their customer’s life or represent a core belief or passion. Lifestyle brands simply allow their customers to express their personality through a purchase.
