JBL gathers weekly Gen Z feedback to optimize social & creative content
before further investing resources into its branded content series. To validate their direction, they wanted to compare an existing content series, “Sounds of the City,” with a newer content series, “Sonic Stories,” with the goal of specifically understanding which content concept is most attractive to Gen Z consumers and why.
Through a combination of quick-turn quant
and qual research with Knit, JBL’s goals were to:
⏱️ Collect content length feedback
💡 Get new ideas for who else should be featured in future videos
How we helped
🏆 Rank video preferences head-to-head as well as collectively within the full set
🎥 Provide qualitative video feedback on each video concept
🤩 Provide additional athlete and celebrity preferences for future video productions

In just 4 days, Knit was able to gather rich, quant + qual insights from a sample fully representative of the national Gen Z population to drive future development of JBL’s video content series.
The key insights provided led JBL to more efficiently allocate staff and budget resources to winning concepts, including:
📹 Further developing and expanding the winning video content series
✂️ Cutting less desirable video elements from post-production to lower production costs
👨🎤 Efficiently aligning and scheduling Gen Z’s most desired persons for future video productions
