Everyone in every industry is trying to figure out how to turn millennials into advocates of their brands. And it’s certainly for good reason: Millennials in the U.S. alone spent $200 billion in 2017, and currently have the most spending power of any generation. They’re a great group to have on your side, but to get them there, you have to market to them and do it well.

All of the different generational terms—Baby Boomers, Gen X, Millennials and Gen Z—are thrown around so liberally, it’s enough to make your head spin. But the fact is, there are real distinctions between the purchasing behaviors and attitudes of these different demographics, reflecting the eras they grew up in and the degree to which they’ve adapted to the digitally-focused lifestyle of today. Here are some of the differences to consider when looking to engage these different audiences using social media and other mediums.

In December, the FCC voted to overturn the “Open Internet Order,” effectively repealing regulation designed to preserve net neutrality. The fact is, there are still a lot of unknowns around what’s next for net neutrality, but as marketers with technology clients that rely entirely on the internet it’s important to know there’s the potential for some significant changes in the near future. So, what does exactly does net neutrality mean and why should it matter to marketers?

Communication practitioners have had to learn to swim outside our usual lanes over the past several years. That’s thanks both to a more competitive marketplace and a changing landscape that makes securing strong earned media coverage more challenging.

As I watch the energy debate in the U.S., it’s clear the battle lines are drawn – you can’t change my mind, and I can’t change yours. All of these complicated issues are being oversimplified. All the rhetoric is sizzle, there is no steak. At a time when energy news headlines are frequently at odds with administration policy (think Paris Agreement, the coal industry, etc.), the communications calculation is clearly that there is really nothing to lose by being bold – and nothing to win by being conciliatory. Likewise, groups on the other side of this debate aren’t backing down or stopping pursuit of actions that support their objectives…that is to say, the ‘opposition’ intends to dominate too.

It’s important to recognize the elements of change that are more fundamental and likely to represent a long-term move in customer sentiments. In my opinion, there are a few overarching themes that might just fall into that category and are worth considering as you look at your messaging and PR, content, and social programming for 2017 and beyond. They are the ones that seem to have resonated, albeit in different forms, on multiple points on the political and cultural spectrum.

There is no denying that the 2016 presidential election was among the biggest marketing events of the year. In fact, I think most people would agree it sucked up most of the air all year long. Nothing short of a historic World Series could get people’s attention off it for any sustained period of time. So we would be remiss if we didn’t take a little time to reflect on some of the more relevant and useful communications lessons.

Belief is a powerful emotion and it’s one we all work to cultivate on a daily basis – whether we’re aware of it or not. All of us need to make believers of our key “audiences”: whether those are our customers, employees, board members, business partners, local town hall participants, students, or even our own family members.
