Generation X (people born between 1966-1981) makes more online purchases than any other age group, averaging nearly 19 transactions per year.

This might come as a surprise to many considering Millennials are the digital natives of our society.

However, as Millennials grow older and enter the workforce and start families, their spending increases. It’s expected that Millennials’ online shopping will increase exponentially in the future and far surpass online spending by older generations.

So, if you want to market your products to Millennials, you need to create a value proposition they can identify with. Millennials view the products they buy as an extension of their image and if a product doesn’t have a positive effect on their desired self-image, they won’t buy it.

Takeaway: You need to sell Millennials on the story. Ask yourself, “What is the scenario in which your product will help them overcome a problem or make them feel better?”
