Marketing to Millennials 101
One in four people in the United States is a Millennial, making them a generation that cannot be ignored by brands. With buying power worth trillions, Millennials expect more of brands than ever before. Below are three ways to connect with your Millennial consumers:
Listen: Millennials want to interact with brands that understand their needs. Listen to what they are saying to create a relevant brand relationship. You can no longer just market to Millennials; you must be authentic and personable to engage these consumers.
Be consistent: Millennials engage in brands they can trust. Be consistent with your messaging to build a relationship based on trust and to involve your consumers in the conversation. Brand authenticity and transparency will engage your Millennial consumers.
