Millennials welcome anything that breaks traditional molds, and they expect marketers to be real.
Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) December 09, 2011
A new set of rules has been created in marketing to Millennials, the generation of progressive young consumers who have ushered in a ‘mocial’ era (mobile, social, local). Growing up suspicious of mass media, Millennials welcome anything that breaks traditional molds, and they expect marketers to ‘be real.’ The Millennial generation seeks out and responds to credible, targeted marketing they can turn around and share with their friends including direct mail marketing.
Tom Emmerson, VP of Sales and Operations at Premier Advantage Marketing, gives his vantage point on marketing to the Millennial generation in the December 2011 issue of Deliver magazine in the article “Making Sense of the Millennial Generation,” written by Allan Nahajewski. According to the article, the Millennial generation, born between 1985 and 2004, is the largest generation in U.S. history at 100 million strong, and their purchasing power is an impressive $200 billion.
“Millennials are keenly aware and suspicious of digital spamming,” says Emmerson. “When direct mail is used in conjunction with mocial marketing , it drives action, delivers sales and helps marketers get their message seen.” For the sake of business, marketers must know how to reach out and get noticed by this generation. According to Emmerson, the key to driving revenue is found in integration. “Marketers need to be everywhere consumers are, providing them information that will get their brand noticed and considered,” says Emmerson. “Integrating direct mail with alternate marketing media increases the ability to make a sale and drive additional revenue.”
