Majority of businesses would definitely agree that marketing to millenials has been a challenge. As results, marketing to millennials has been a recurring topic in the minds of marketers and in marketing meetings during the digital revolution’s peak. Even if numerous companies led by the baby boomer executives claim that millennials have an entitled attitude, many older generations and companies don’t understand what millennials face. For instance, millennials are considered as the most educated generation, they make up forty percent of unemployed workers in America.
Strategies for Digital Signage
Millennials have changed the way every company does business and how they market to consumers. If your business is still struggling to market to the millennials, here are the ways to use digital signage in your business marketing strategy.
It continues to dominate the digital world. The various formats of content have proven to help every brand connects with millennials. As a matter of fact, it has proven to build rapport with younger generations that value brands that have clear commitment and connection to the social community and those that engage in the conversations and give personalized service tailored to the needs of millennials. For instance, digital signage is a simple way of showcasing the content of your brand including imagery and some visual assets or videos in your ads in local restaurants or on a sports event in a big theater or stadium.
With the use of digital signage as the best component in the marketing strategy of your company presents your brand as current and modern that resonates well with the millennials. As a matter of fact, mobile marketing is one of the ways to market to the millennials.

Even if some companies have admitted to going a bit crazy with PPC advertising and pop-up ads, they’re getting smarter as well as fine tuning their strategies to reach millennial customers better. Several effective methods include the use of shorter videos in showcasing services and products and using a blend of offline and online marketing strategies including digital signage.

Most companies have used social media platforms including Snapchat and Instagram to showcase food and fashion brands. Digital menu boards are also an example of how the restaurants leverage signage to not engage only with millennials and improve their experiences, yet to encourage and spark social media conversations, some calls to action, and social interactions. For example, integrating social media icons on the digital menu boards have inspired users in posting photos of their meal choices and share them with their audiences in social media.
To top it all, businesses that cannot keep up with the millennials are missing out on a big market and losing millions in lost opportunities and sales. Nevertheless, through investing in digital signage technology and making tweaks to the marketing strategy of a business to concentrate more on social media conversations with the millennials and video content, your business will be a brand that every millennial will trust and recognize.
