Marketing in the Age of Millennials
It's 2017 and millennials are taking control of American society. With this modern development comes a new generation to market to and offers a huge opportunity for businesses to target. What makes millennials so unique is the huge divide between them and every other cohort. Millennial culture comes with distinct attitudes and behaviors that align with America's youth as little as it does with America's older generations.
Some characteristics unique to millennials is their affinity for technology, desire for instant gratification and socializing, and their drive to see and make the world a better place. Don't underestimate them. They may be young but they are fast learners, adaptive and open minded. Great characteristics to foster a better world community, but not the best environment to establish a brand relationship.

It's time to get creative and use higher levels of content, ad production and marketing.
