5 things to keep in mind while marketing to millennials

first_img 116SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Tyler Atwell Web: Details Be RelevantMany millennials have never known a world without the internet, and now the internet is their world. Sharing, watching, posting, reading, reviewing. All of those things are happening with or without your branch being a part of it. The only way to join that conversation is to be where it is happening.Be AuthenticMillennials have been raised in a time where companies have the tools to sell them at any time of the day. The constant onslaught of ads and offers has thickened their skin, trusting friends over big businesses. With the ability to spot a poser from a mile away, marketing initiatives need to be focused on assuming that role of ‘friend.’Be ConsistentThe only way to stay relevant and engage customers is to make sure you keep showing up to the conversation. Being consistent also showcases how accessible your branch is. Trends come and go, you have the power to make sure you aren’t just a fad.Be EngagingJust starting a Twitter, Facebook, or any other social media account won’t do you much good if you don’t use it to actually communicate. Again, being present at a conversation is only half the battle. Not being an active voice is like going to a party and standing in the corner by yourself the entire time, awkward for everyone around.Be HelpfulMillennials support businesses who are dedicated to improving their customers lives with informative content. Step back from trying to push product lists and offers, but develop whitepaper, blogs or how-to information that can convince millennials they need you.last_img read more

Bill Staley

first_imgFew of us remember that Bill Staley of Utah State was the second overall pick by the Cincinnati Bengals in their inaugural NFL draft in 1968.  Bob Johnson of Tennessee was their first pick.  Johnson became a Bengal regular but Bill Staley’s career was a medical disaster.  He came to the Bengals with a bad shoulder that occurred in his senior year in college.  That never really healed.In his two years with the Bengals he suffered two knee injuries and was traded to the Chicago Bears.  While with the Bears he suffered numerous concussions in his 3-year stint.  The 67-year-0ld Staley now lives in California on a small farm with his wife trying to remember what life once promised to be.  He suffers from chronic traumatic encephalopathy (a degenerative brain disease).  This was the result of all those concussions from his days of football.Bill now wanders around his farm with chronic headaches, a crippled body, and the beginning of dementia.  Like so many NFL veterans, he struggles financially trying to pay all those medical bills.  Because of his disabilities, he cannot hold a regular job.  He is hoping that a lawsuit against the NFL will eventually help pay his medical bills.  Until then, he lives with anger issues, dementia, and those reoccurring headaches.  It certainly wasn’t the dream job he thought it was going to be.last_img read more
