Plus, they’re social-savvy and very comfortable with online shopping and the Internet in general. However, all of this experience has left them more than a little jaded when it comes to brand advertising. Only 6% of millennials consider online advertising to be a trusted source for product information.

It moves me in the right direction when it comes to millennial marketing. That’s the key.

I’m looking forward to finding a quite moment to read this one, thanks.


Ah the coveted millennials! I find them fascinating but I think they’re labeled too much. Every group has a multitude of personalities and they’re pretty typical overall. They’re just a lot more comfy with the internet than the rest of us.
