Marketing to Gen Z

Step aside Millennial, Generation Z is the focus. Gen Z is the most diverse generation yet; they are expected to comprise 32 percent of the global population in 2020, outnumbering millennial, who will account for 31.5 percent. For a long time, brand marketers have focused their efforts on attracting millennial consumers, a tech-savvy generation who tend to be driven by the entire experience of buying a product. Gen Z, motivated by purchases that stretch the value of money spent, hold the highest lifetime value of any consumer segment.

  • Generation Z is digital natives, so marketers must act that way, too. Generation Z is the online generation so the best way to reach them with your marketing efforts is to market to them where they are, i.e. online.
  • Creating quick, effective content to market to Gen Z is a perfect shot to grab customer perceived value. Gen Z has grown up in the era of online reviews and this generation is more likely to make a purchasing decision based on the positive reviews they read about the company.
  • Influencers are an excellent addition to any Gen Z marketing efforts. This is because this generation follows influencers on their social media pages and trusts what they say about company products. 

For eg: ScoopWhoop, BuzzFeed, TechnicalGuruji-YouTube channels, doing paid promotions of several products of various brands.

  • Gen Z knows they have options when it comes to who and where they will spend their money. They are the first generation to grow up with access to a truly global economy. This means brands have to market themselves based on values, not product features, price and design.

Like millennial, Gen Z wants to make a difference in the world. Because of technology, they are extremely plugged-in and hyper-aware of all the challenges facing our planet. They are also expertly adept at blocking out marketing ‘noise.’ To succeed, marketers need to align their brand to a greater purpose with a narrative that captures the attention and imaginations of this upcoming demographic.

  1. Thanks for this excellent article. Yet another thing to mention is that most digital cameras can come equipped with some sort of zoom lens that allows more or less of the scene for being included simply by ‘zooming’ in and out. These kind of changes in {focus|focusing|concentration|target|the a**** length are reflected while in the viewfinder and on large display screen at the back of the camera.
