CONDUCT YOUR RESEARCH
Don’t make assumptions about what might appeal to the younger consumer; instead, do your research. You can find some general information about the younger generations by perusing market research conducted by others. For example, you might find that they use technology to shop and pay.
However, for your particular brand and market niche, you will need to conduct specialized research to understand marketing strategies. You may use surveys or focus groups, or take a look at your competitors and see what they’re doing. Using market analytic software can also give you a profile of your younger customer base.
Before anyone can decide to use your business, they have to know it exists. Increasing brand visibility will help grow awareness, engender a positive attitude toward your business, and attract new customers. Online, you can utilize search engine optimization (SEO) strategies to increase your ranking in search results.
You can also increase brand visibility in your community through signage and local advertising. Vehicle wraps make your brand visible to millions of potential customers. Sponsoring events and sports for kids and teens will also get your brand noticed with young consumers.
DEVELOP A MOBILE APP
It’s expected that you will have a website and use social media, but if you really want to reach young consumers, develop a mobile app. It’s no secret that young generations are glued to their smartphones, and through an app, your brand will be them 24/7.
Get creative with your app. Make use of augmented reality technology, which allows you to integrate real-time pictures with computer-generated images. The user can model clothing or see how furniture will look in their homes. QR codes are also popular; many restaurants are asking consumers to scan QR codes to access their menus.
Your brand can be a success among young consumers if you understand how to reach them. Their interests, lifestyles, and expectations are different from their parents and grandparents, so your marketing strategies must be tailored to them. With a little research and some smart moves, you can capture their business.
