Do you know who you're marketing to?
If your marketing strategy is the same for everyone, you’re missing the mark.
That’s because each generation has unique preferences when it comes to marketing. In fact, marketing that gets great engagement with one generation might fall completely flat with another. So when you’re planning your next marketing campaign, ask yourself which generation you want to reach and try using some of these generation-specific strategies:
Baby Boomers (born between 1947 and 1965)
- Use email marketing
- Set up a referral and/or loyalty program
- Ask for reviews and use them in your marketing
Gen Xers (born between 1966 and 1981)
- Offer subscriptions and/or bundles that come with a discount
- Plan your marketing around promotions
- Ask for reviews and use them everywhere in your marketing
Millennials (born between 1982 and 1999)
- Set up a referral and/or brand ambassador program
- Talk about values, ethical standards, and sustainability in your marketing
- Use organic content and social proof in your marketing
Gen Zs (born between 2000 and 2020)
- Offer free gifts
- Use influencer marketing
- Use storytelling in your marketing
