Stop Marketing to Millennials or Gen-Z and Start Marketing to Tribes

Still marketing based on traditional demographic information? "We live in a post-demographic world," writes Kian Bakhtiari, "where patterns of behavior can no longer be predicted by age alone." Instead, Bakhtiari, who writes about marketing with a Gen-Z and Millennial lens, says marketers need to understand tribes, which are created and fueled by a shared mindset. People's attitudes, behaviors, and needs are the new demographics. You'll have a deeper understanding by reading the complete article: "Stop Marketing to Millennials or Gen-Z and Start Marketing to Tribes."
