Management Masala Insights: Millennials Gen Y Brand Loyalty Millennials Brand Loyalty
Millennials Brand Loyalty
With the Baby Boomers getting in to the zone of less spending, Brand owners are worried about the right approach they can use to attract the Millennials / Gen Y.

Though people in age-group 18-34 are not really the biggest spenders across the world, brand managers are keeping them as the target audience. Brand managers think that if they hook the customers in this age group, these hooked customers will stick with the brand forever.

However, this may not always be true. Brand loyalty among Gen Y is less than that among the Baby Boomers and Gen X. This doesn't mean that brand loyalty is a thing of past. It only means that it is going to be tougher for brands to sustain the loyalty of Gen Y. It is important to understand the parameters on which the Gen Y decides its brand loyalty.

Key Finding of the report are:
  • 77% of the Millennials surveyed said that they evaluate brands on a different set of criteria than their parents did. 
  • 55% of Millennials said that recommendations of a friend is one of the strongest influencers in getting them to try a new brand. 47% consider brand reputation to be almost as important. Product quality ranks fourth at 35%, while price is the most sway at 62%.
  • 39% of all respondents said that the brands that don’t advertise through mobile channels, smartphones, and tablets are outdated and undesirable.
  • 60% of Millennials said that social advertising has the most influence over them in how they perceive a brand and a brand’s value. This compares with TV at 70%. Traditional media outside of TV fell flat. In the realm of influence, radio, billboards (OOH), and magazines finished last with mobile and online—both display and video—comfortably in the center.
