ANYONE MARKETING TO MILLENNIALS NEED TO BE AWARE OF THESE 11 QUESTIONS

I have the pleasure of speaking at the upcoming 2014 Youth Marketing Strategy conference in New York City on June 12th. I’m honored to be sharing the stage with thought leaders from the likes of MTV, Mashable, and Facebook/Instagram. In preparation for the conference, I was interviewed about marketing to Millennials. The questions were so rich and thought provoking, I had to share.

Marketing To Millennials

1. What brands have inspired you?
  • From a company culture perspective, Zappos, Deloitte, Google, Square, and Rigor (Atlanta based tech start-up) inspire me.
  • From a mobile marketing perspective, Jack In The Box, Airbnb, and Nike inspire me.
  • From a brand entertainment perspective, Old Spice, Charmin, Dollar Shave Club, and the Skittles’ twitter account are always good for a chuckle and inspiration.
  • From a personal perspective, I am inspired by the amazing personal brands of Michael Hyatt, Gary Vaynerchuk, Brendon Burchard, and Pat Flynn.
