While the Millennial generation continues to be referred to as our nation’s youth demographic, its oldest members are preparing to turn 40. Typecast as the narcissistic, entitled offspring of Baby Boomers, lifestyles of the “Aging Millennials” are often quite different from those of their younger counterparts. Millennials, otherwise known as “Generation Y,” are advancing in their careers, buying homes, raising their kids and growing their retirement funds, but that's not reflected in the media.

Imagine the ability to influence a consumer in such a personalized and meaningful way that you can shape the dynamics of an industry. Imagine understanding the marketplace in a way that the influences on a consumer are subconsciously driving, not just the purchase decision, but the affinity to the brand. Guiding the customer to a purchase decision in an omni-channel fashion can only be achieved by thoughtful and intentional digital strategies. In a digital age where information is more accessible than ever; and the platforms to obtain such information is more and more portable, the ability to leverage those channels as a digital strategy can create a new market opportunity and a new way to engage customers.
