How do you market to Millennials?

by Jim Perry on February 24, 2015

millennials

This morning NPR continued its latest series called The New Boom – a look at a cohort, some 80 million strong, that spends (by some estimates) over 1 trillion dollars a year. In today’s segment, they attempted to answer the question “how should brands and advertisers go about reaching millennials?” You can listen to the full segment here.

My favorite quote from the story came from Antonus Siler, 34, who works in digital marketing:

“Honestly If I could say anything to the advertisers, it’d be this — entertain me, make me happy, capture my attention, speak to my conscious, and then leave me the heck alone.”
