Marketing to millennials can be a tough sell - The Boston Globe

Marketing to millennials can be a tough sell - The Boston Globe | My MishMosh | Scoop.it
Anna Volain is an especially hard sell when it comes to sales pitches. The 20-year-old Boston University student has grown up in an unprecedented sea of advertising — delivered not just through print, radio, and television, but by computers, handheld devices, product placement in movies and television, and all sorts of social media. But unfortunately for marketers, Volain and other millennials — generally defined as people born after 1980 — have also become skilled at finding ways to avoid the constant stream of advertising. They skip past ads, block them, or simply ignore the come-ons. That has created major challenges for companies eager to build lifelong connections with these younger consumers, many of whom are on the verge of entering their prime income-earning years.

Shelby Porter's curator insight, November 4, 2013 7:12 AM

This political cartoon is just another great example of how different cultures are across the globe. Here in America, we are told that the appropriate swimwear to wear to the beach only covers about a third of our body. Where as in the Middle East, wearing a burka is what they are told is the right type of clothing to wear. Whether it be for religious, cultural, or fashionable reasons, women wear all types of clothing and I don't believe it is directly due to male influence. There are many things that could cause this influence such as the church, family, or the media. Yet as the cartoon says, each woman thinks the men in that country are forcing them into wearing clothes like that and their culture is dominated by men. I guess it just shows the different perspectives each culture can have. 

megan b clement's comment, December 15, 2013 9:51 PM
This cartoon depicts the cultural differences between two different cultures. On the right you have a woman in a traditional burka that covers all but her eyes. On the left you have a woman in a bikini which is what is apropriate to wear on the beach or to bed. Two totally different societies and beliefs and they both look at one another and see the other person as inapropriate. This is not the first time another country has looked at the USA and turned their nose up to something that we do differently.
Jacqueline Landry's curator insight, December 16, 2013 3:31 PM

when I look at this the first thought that comes to mind is it is easy for other people to judge. just by there comments they have no idea what the others beliefs are,. This is a classic judging a book by it's cover. The are both assuming it has to do with a male dominating world. I think it has to do with what you are comfortable with.

Morgan Burian's curator insight, March 26, 3:33 PM

"Now to "Reverse Racism."  It's crucial to maintain the distinction between the above three terms, because otherwise white people tend to redefine "Discrimination" as "Racism".  Their main argument is that because both blacks and white can discriminate against each other, that "Reverse Racism" is possible.  But the truth of the matter is that black people: 1) have far less opportunity to discriminate against whites than whites have to discriminate against blacks, overall; and 2) black people lack a system of institutionalized support that protect them when they discriminate against whites." 

-Taken from the article.  This is not completely what I believe, I like to think of it as "reverse discrimination" not racism.  It fits much better and the after thought is better fitting.  Good read, and gives you something to think about.
