Understanding How To Connect and Target New Markets – Including Millennials

Understanding How To Connect and Target New Markets – Including Millennials
Select Your Attributes to Find Customer Insights

Marketers know they must connect with millennials.

The how, where and when is what so many teams are struggling with.

Apple Bank was launching a new product, ‘the everyday account’ that combined saving and lending features, for which they were targeting millennials. Apple’s Media Planner was provided with a broad segment of millennials to target with 20% of the go to market ad spend.

The challenge is that millennials are not one cohesive segment purely defined by the time in which they were born. There are many segments and profiles within the millennial demographic.

Tight budgets often mean marketers and media planners lack the resources to further segment existing targets, a critical step in dissecting the millennial bunch and a good indicator for media selects.

Instead, Media Planner’s employ ad-hoc media monitoring to see how competitors are messaging to this group and position themselves accordingly.

Now marketers can access both insights and competitive media monitoring through one interface, intelligentVIEW.
