Generational Communications: X + Y = Boomers? (partner plug)

This blog is a media sponsor for BDI; you can read my policy for media sponsorship here. As an aside, I’ve planned some events and it’s tough to get marketers presenting their own case studies, so this should provide a lot of value for attendees, along with good networking opportunities (based on past BDI events I’ve attended).

The Millennials, or Generation Y, born between 1976 and 2001, represent the
largest generation since the Baby Boomers. Almost all of them own a computer,
cell phone, and use instant messaging and social networks every day. They rely
on their friends for everything in terms of what influences their buying
behavior. The Baby Boomers, born between 1945 and 1964, will start to retire in
2011. Boomers spend money and consume products very differently from later
generations. Organizations who understand the Boomer’s changing needs
have a large but challenging opportunity in front of them. We will explore case
studies from leading companies who have successfully segmented their
communications according to generation.
