Generation Zers can spot an ad from a mile away. If you want your message to break through, send it through a trusted messenger.
Generation Z is fast becoming the most coveted of marketing audiences. Unfortunately, it is also one of the hardest to reach. Gen Z is incredibly media savvy, so the challenge for marketers is trying to connect with an audience that already knows every marketing trick in the book. If you aren’t direct with your messaging, you’ll quickly lose Gen Zers’ attention, not to mention their trust.
On the flip side, this also presents a unique opportunity to come up with more strategic ways to reach your audience and grow your company. Gen Zers differ from previous generations in many ways, but there is one audience that can help you connect with them like never before: their teachers.
Speaking to a new kind of consumer
Generation Z breaks the mold many times over — and not always in ways that you’d expect. For instance, it’s no secret that Gen Zers are digital natives, yet the vast majority of them (about 74 percent, according to Business Insider) prefer to communicate with the people they work with face-to-face rather than online.
