Defining your audiences
Once you’ve got the why, concentrate on the who. To connect with the right people, know who they are and what motivates them. Don’t try to be all things to all people. We are all overwhelmed daily by thousands of ads and messages.
To break through, know your audience—what they value, what they look for—and place your message where they’re looking. Our audience definition worksheet helps you define your targets, then focus on the benefits you provide.
The Millennials are here
Gen Y/Millennials, born in the mid ‘80s and now 80 million strong, are digital natives who crave authenticity. This generation, which will be 26% of the workforce by 2014, is shaping how and where we communicate and market.
Their influence is being seen in everything from TV ads and movies to website design and social media growth. They’re not a generation you can ignore, no matter what business you’re in. We’ll touch more on this in our next issue.
