"Marketing to Millenials: Breaking all the Rules"

Marketing is all about defining your Unique Selling Proposition (USP) and pushing that USP to everyone until they are blue in the face from the frequency, as everyone responds to the same type of marketing and promotions…Right? Nothing could be further from the truth.

There has been a shift in the basics of marketing and advertising…a shift in how we research and where we find answers to our questions. The truth is that what you may be missing in your marketing plan is an opportunity to reach the Millennials, and allow them to promote your business, service, or cause. Learn what a Millennial is, where you can find them, what they are doing and how to reach them through your marketing plan. If you are a business owner, an organization with a great cause, or someone who is trying to reach that younger GenY target audience, attend this session to learn what’s hot & what’s not when trying to reach Millennials.
