Created by people (individual creators), not brands.
UGC is a part of marketing, and allows brands to connect with individuals to get their product in front a specific demographic. It’s similar to influencer marketing, but different in that the brand can utilize the content for their own accounts on social media for advertising purpose. Helps brands build authenticity and trust within their target market!

Some examples of UGC are:
Product demos (Photo and Video content)
Brand Partnerships (Shout outs on YouTube)
Product Photography (images)
Get Ready With Me (GRWM)
