Having a Hard Time Understanding Your Younger Customer

Let’s Face It! The average age of Promo Distributors according to ASI is 57. No wonder you are struggling to understand your younger buyer. The dreaded Millenial!

I have been in this business for nearly 25 years so I am not a millenial. However, I have Millenial kids and and have a very young innovative approach to the promo business.

In regards to Millenials and promo there are a few earth-shaking changes that us older promo people need to consider.

  1. Millenials want something new. Millenials are not going to repeat their pen order with the same logo and same pen for the next 10 years. You better get used to this idea because if you rely on repeats year after year you are out of luck.
  2. Millenials do not want what they predecessor bought. Even if what the predecessor bought worked, the Millenial will not keep on doing it. Best to stop trying to push them in this direction.
  3. Millenials want what is happening at retail for promo. Fidget Cubes, Popsockets, Fidget Spinners are all great examples of retail trends for promo. If you are not on-trend you will get crushed.

We Do It Differently, “We Do Weird Well!”

We specialize in the unique and the unusual, the trending and the social media savvy……in short we know what Millenials want. Don’t believe me? You sure you want to take that risk?

Here is what is trending. NOW! Call 888-908-1481 for info or email me John

Trends to consider as of Sept 13, 2017!

#2: EDC Tools: You see it everywhere, EDC! What does EDC mean?  EDC is an acronym for Every Day Carry and is in itself a trending word/concept. The idea behind EDC for promo swag is almost certainly a modern day take on things that were once popular such as Swiss Army Knives and Leatherman tools.

 #3 Fidget Cubes: Fidget Cubes actually kicked off the trend on all things Fidgety. However, the fidget spinner trend initially ran over the cube last spring. Now as the inexpensive spinner trend is leveling off the Fidget Cube is showing distinct signs of increased sales and interest. What is a Fidget Cube and How does it work?

Like many “smokin’ hot ideas” there is often a divergence in the market trends that ultimately show if a product has “legs”. Never was it truer than in the case of Fidget Spinners.

As most of you already know Fidget Spinners are one of the all-time trends of the past 100 years.

The Fidget Spinner has been compared to the Hula Hula Hoop by the New York Times and has been heralded by Forbes as the 21st Century must-have office toy.

In its so far short life the Fidget Spinner has taken this divergence to extremes with one side of the equation seeing a rapid race to the price bottom while another “spin” of the trend heading for a premium quality Fidget Spinner.

Despite what bewildered teachers and baby boomer geezers see as a passing trend the Fidget Spinner is a more significant trend than that.

In a world where everything is digital the Fidget Spinner represents one of the truest connections to a more “analog” world where the tactile rules.

For the Millenial (aka Generation Y) a Premium Fidget Spinner is seen not only as being part of the collective zeitgeist but more importantly it is seen as a totally affordable status symbol.

‘In a time where Generation Y has given up on ever being able to afford a house or a luxury car the small luxuries such as a Premium Fidget Spinner fill a much desired void!”
