Marketing to Millennials can be quite a challenge. As the first generation to grow up with the Internet, Generation Y Millennials are used to a fast-paced world with information coming in from every direction with the just the touch of the fingertips. This sub-group has a number of great characteristics. They value individuality and welcome social diversity. Millenials also are optimistic and favor convenience both in their lifestyle and shopping habits. On the flip side, they are also distrustful of much of the world around them from politicians to corporations. Business owners must be aware of the power of Generation Y and how to cater to their needs in order to win trust.
Engaging Generation Y is one of the best ways to win their business and build loyalty. They thrive off interactive marketing strategies that utilize two-way communication. They also value sites that allow them to share their opinions with others or give feedback on their experience with a business. Testimonials and word-of-mouth play a big role in their purchase decisions.
Another way to promote trust (and repeat business) from the Generation Y group is to be authentic and straightforward in your sales campaigns and promotions. This group can see gimmicks coming for miles away and prefer to receive promotional materials that are upfront and accurate. A sincere and genuine approach to brand marketing is best for Millennials.
