- Why generational marketing insights are key to an omnichannel strategy
Advertising has a generation problem. Too much of our messaging is either generic for all generations or based on misconceptions: for example, the assumption that Baby Boomers aren’t online or the commonly held belief that younger generations only want advertisements in gif form.
The cure for these age-based misfires? A closer look at exactly how each generation uses technology and spends their time online could lead to a deeper understanding of what customers of all ages are looking for from brands in order to serve messages that matter.
Even slightly changing the brand-customer conversation through generational insights can be a game-changer for your campaigns.
“Brands that can effectively target each generation through the proper devices and platforms are more likely to create personalized and meaningful connections with their audiences, leading to increased sales and long-term loyalty. Therefore, marketers must take action now to understand the nuances of generational marketing and integrate it into their overall omnichannel marketing strategy.”
Not creating variations of your messaging for each generation?
Your ads could absolutely be landing with a thud if you don’t understand the differences between the age groups.
Just having a basic understanding of some of the key differences could help you plan and build your campaigns more effectively.
