Key Points To Take Away
- – Millennials care about money and want to be rewarded. Do not be afraid to engage them in promotions and competitions.
- – Don’t bombard millennials with constant updates. Go with content they can relate to.
- – Respect their privacy. Avoid social sign-in if you want them to use your app or website.
- – Don’t leave their questions unanswered. They appreciate your response, even if they do not provide them with a solution.
