Move Over Millennials -- Here Comes Gen Z

Move Over Millennials -- Here Comes Gen Z | Retail technology | Scoop.it
Even more challenging than millennials is the next generation of consumers -- Gen Z. Here's what marketers need to know to reach Gen Zers.
Nikki Baird's insight:

If you think that Gen Z is not a force to be reckoned with, you only have to look to Wet Seal, Abercrombie, Hollister, Delia's, etc. etc. The teen market is imploding, in significant part because they could not adapt to this highly adaptable generation.

Why CRM data is having a moment - Digiday

Why CRM data is having a moment - Digiday | Retail technology | Scoop.it
Tech advances have made CRM and display increasingly indistinguishable in the eyes of some marketers.
Nikki Baird's insight:

Is this really some kind of debate? Am I missing something? Are brands really out there advertising without knowing who their targets are and the best ways to reach them, information that would be provided by CRM? Perhaps I was wildly optimistic about the connection between what brands know about their customers and how they use that information to acquire new ones.
