Have you heard about haul videos? These videos show teen girls vlogging (ooh-ing & aah-ing) over their purchases (hauls) at local malls. The video highlights a new trend in marketing and advertising there are over 1,000,000 million hours of ads posted online as a result of haul videos. Girls are even getting paid sponsorships from companies to feature their products. We’ve heard of 2 teen girls who dropped out of regular high school to be home schooled so they could spend more time shopping & making these videos.
We Want To Hear From You! What do you think about this new trend? Are there positive aspects about what they are doing? What are the negative parts? Do you think it portrays girls in a positive light?
