The key to successful marketing is building your brand and creating a loyal customer base that returns to your store to purchase again. You want consumers to recognize your brand, trust the quality, and anticipate new releases. Building your brand takes time and effort. From designing compelling consumer marketing assets to expanding your customer reach, in this blog series, I offer suggestions to help grow your customer base and ultimately reach your marketing goals.

Consumer Trends

Consumer trends around the globe can differ depending on location. For some countries, seasonal motifs and holiday celebrations are top sellers. For others, cultural influences help determine which styles perform better. Some countries love illustrated art and stylistic characters, while other countries enjoy futuristic or classic designs. However, globally there are a few notable trends:

Feminine Inspired

When it comes to personalization, women have become a large demographic of apps purchased on Galaxy Store. Specifically for watch face designs, this is due to the popularity of the Mystic Bronze Galaxy Watch3, Pink Gold Galaxy Watch Active2, and Rose Gold Galaxy Watch. The top-selling watch face of 2020 was Golden Floral Digital Watch by Tatyana Galkina, a watch face specifically designed for women.

Digital vs. Analog

Classic analog watch faces that simulate realistic watch hands can be stunning. However, sales have shown that watch faces displaying digital time outperform analog watch faces. Consumers are attracted to the amount of additional data shown on digital watch faces like heart rate, step count, distance, speed, date, and battery level, along with how quickly the digital time can be read.




Creativity

With so many options available on Galaxy Store, your apps should be unique. Creative designs stand out and give the best possibility to be noticed. USA Design has created many such watch faces that are graphically innovative and well designed.
