5 Ways to Attract Millennial Customers

5 Ways to Attract Millennial Customers

If your business has yet to create a strategy that markets to millennial customers, then it’s neglecting a major component of its target audience. Millennials make up the second-largest generation in the U.S. after baby boomers. They’re expected to soon surpass the older generation as they continue to grow and make up a majority of the buyer’s market.

As their numbers increase, so does their buying power. The more you know this specific demographic of people, the easier it’ll be to market to them and give them what they want so your business succeeds.

Millennial consumers differ from the generations before them because they grew up with technology, go further in their education, and encourage diversity. Their buying practices more closely align with their connection to a brand and its reputation rather than choosing the first option. 

Since there are so many cultural, economic and technological differences between millennials and the generations prior to them, it’s crucial for businesses to market with these differences in mind. If you plan on marketing to a millennial customer in the same way you’d sell to a baby boomer, for example, you’ll won’t have many of them shopping with you. 

Since they make up a large portion of the buying market, your business must learn more about them if it’s going to generate sales, build brand awareness, collect leads, and much more.

There are five different ways your business can market to millennials more effectively, including:

  • Being active on social media

  • Connecting through email

  • Featuring user-generated content

  • Providing stellar customer support

  • Implementing higher values 

Here is more detail on each tactic you should be using to attract more millennial customers.

1. Be active on social

If you’re going to reach millennial consumers, then you need to be active on social media. Wherever they hang

How to Create Viral Marketing Content in 2020

How to Create Viral Marketing Content in 2020

A new year means a fresh opportunity for businesses to connect with their audience. It’s the right time to share your best content and help it go viral so that your brand stands out. 

There’s no secret recipe that guarantees a viral post, or everyone would do it. However, viral content has specific common characteristics that you can leverage in your business content.

What makes a post go viral? People share content on social media because they get an emotional reaction and want to share that experience. Sharing content is also a way for people to define themselves in virtual spaces. It showcases a person’s stance on different topics and makes people feel like they are part of a movement.

By creating content that makes people develop such feelings, a business can create the best scenario for their content to go viral in 2020.

Let’s explore the different ways you can make your content go viral.

Create long-form content

Today, more people than ever before visit sites and access information on their mobile phones. So, it seems natural to create short-form content for smaller screens. It is easier to read and you get the relevant information directly. 

However, in reality, long-form content gets more shares than short-form content does. Long-form content often contains complete and in-depth information that is helpful. Such content containing over 3000 words is rare, and people perceive long-form content as having more value. Create long-form content instead of focusing on several smaller pieces and you’re more likely to make it go viral.

Use the right content management platform

Your website plays a central role in hosting content. It’s essential to use a robust content management system to create your site and posts.

Using a WordPress platform is one of the best things you can do for

How Web Design Improvements Can Boost Your Bottom Line

Within five seconds of a visitor landing on your website, can they determine exactly what your business offers? Can users navigate to your business blog if they want to? Is your pricing simple to understand? If you’re answering “no” to these questions, it may be time to make some changes to the way you have designed and optimized your business website.

 A website won’t succeed by excelling in one or two aspects, such as solely content or solely design. It has to have a design that nurtures the user experience and appropriately complements your content. Your website must also clearly communicate what you do, why you do it and who you do it for. It is easy to get caught up with how good your business is but you don’t want to fail to address the core concerns your audience has.

Look at these 10 website tips to ensure you’re not losing potential customers.

Devise a plan 

You can’t successfully design a website if you don’t have a well thought out plan. In order to ensure your website is effectively meeting the needs of your visitors, make sure it is smooth to use from the moment your visitor arrives until the moment they become a customer. Think about what pages your visitors will view, the content they will read and what offers are appealing for them to convert on. When you understand this, you can design a website that nurtures leads through the sales funnel.

Remove certain verbiage from your website

There are elements of your website that can detract from the message and value you’re hoping to convey to your visitors. Complicated animation, content that runs on and stocky images are a few of the elements you should address. Your audience has a short attention span – about 8
