From the Author

I started my career almost 15 years ago, at the age of 16. And I will admit it was a total and complete accident. At the time, I was working as a writer for a newspaper for girls out of New York City, The New Girl Times. The publisher of the paper, Miriam Hipsh, really gave me - and other young writers - an amazing opportunity. I really understood the power of my voice. What started out as a gig writing product reviews turned into a company I founded called The Buzz. The Buzz transformed into Buzzteen.com, which eventually became Buzz Marketing Group.
 
So this concept of chasing youth culture and getting it right is something on which I've spent my entire career focusing. From a very young age, I've had the privilege of working with brands like Verizon Wireless, Candie's, Maidenform, American Eagle Outfitters, PBS, and a host of others. I've been able to learn from the things they did right, and major blunders they've made in an effort to satisfy the Millennial consumer.
 
We live in a world that is completely obsessed with staying young and understanding young people. This book isn't just for the marketers who are trying so hard to get the youth dollar, it's for the Millennials' teachers, parents, the media - anyone who wants to understand how to talk to and understand today's young people.
 
I hope that through this book, I will be able to finally put an end to a few Millennial myths (they're apathetic, they don't care about anything) and also enlighten you on how they behave and want to be communicated with (tribes are important, and you have to speak their language).
 
In this book you'll learn about mindset marketing, and how you have to market to Millennials based on their tribal needs. There is a distinct way that Millennials want you to talk to them, and understanding what their needs are will make this communication that much easier. I'll also discuss the importance of technology, and how it's changing the way Millennials think and how they feel about the future. It greatly impacts the way marketers communicate with them. Finally, I'll introduce the trend of Global Mobiles - my new name for Millennials. The world has truly become their oyster, and there are no technological limits when it comes to consuming the good that they really want.
 
I hope that you enjoy this book, and I hope that it serves as a guide to you on your journey to understand Millennials more.  This book is full of advice that I give my clients every day. I believe that marketers truly want to understand Millennials - actually, we all do - and this book is my attempt to start what I hope is a very engaging and ongoing conversation. Let the conversation begin.

Format: Hardcover
In her new book Chasing Youth Culture and Getting It Right: How Your Business Can Profit by Tapping Today’s Most Powerful Trendsetters and Tastemakers, Buzz Marketing CEO Tina Wells urges you to market to teens, tweens and young adults not by age alone, but by “tribe.” While it’s difficult to accept that Wells’ tribes truly represent the totality of the thinking of tweens, teens and young adults, her book underscores an important reality of sales and marketing in the age of The Long Tail: Why The Future of Business is Selling Less of More–Chris Anderson’s must-read book about the changing nature of consumer choice and tastes in a largely digital marketplace: targeting consumers by age, race, gender and other traditional demographic markers alone is no longer enough for a business to be effective and, ultimately, profitable.

I work at a national office for a sorority & I swear by this book. I recommend it to all of our advisors who struggle to connect with a new generation of college women. It's an immense help to understand the generational differences & the tribes she identifies are right on point in my experience. Its a quick read that provides great insight & will enable you to connect with Gen Y in a meaningful capacity, if you want to that is.
