Today’s young adults have access to more disposable income than ever before. Targeting them as customers is important for the success of your new business — now as it is trying to get a solid start and for building long-term loyalty for years down the road. Reaching this segment of the population involves using strategies that appeal to the unique aspects of this generation.
Harness Social Media
Of course, your business needs to have a strong social media presence in order to capture — and retain — the attention of busy, young, tech-savvy millennials. This generation, which is used to being connected to each other, their own world and the globe 24/7 is not just looking to be spoon fed facts and reasons why a business is a great idea for them. Instead, they want a business that mirrors their values when it comes to those brands and services they choose. Be the type of business that makes millennials proud and you will bring them in the door.
Hire Your Target Audience
Unless you are also part of your target audience, you cannot truly know what makes them tick. While you can tap the knowledge base of millennials you know, a better option is to hire them to be the face of your business. Not only will you be able to engage in valuable insight to your target audience, other millennials will feel like they are part of the group — a concept that is important to this segment of the population.
Make Your Grand Opening Stand Out
Today’s generation has many choices that they must make each day. Make it easy for them to choose — and find — your business during its grand opening. In a crowded marketplace, having a unique way of presenting your message can make the difference between your business being passed over and young people entering your doors. A generation that loves to play as much as it likes to work, giant inflatables emblazoned with your business name make it easy for them to find your front door.
Deliver Innovation and Trust
Millennials are used to having technology at their fingertips so be sure to capitalize on their interest and its availability. Refining new and interesting methods of accomplishing ideals while also providing a way for them to connect with people and ideas helps keep your business fresh while also building trust. Trust — in the form of consistent results or sincere implementation of feedback — helps millennials to feel connected with society at large as well as their own peer group.
