Understanding exactly how to market to the different types of generations can help you to develop a highly targeted and effective marketing plan. It’s hard to build a relationship with someone you know nothing about. After all, knowledge is power.

Those born between 1946 – 1964 stem from a generation of social and political movement, so it’s no surprise that baby boomers will likely engage in an online poll or two.

Call-to-actions will influence participation between baby boomers and your brand, as touched on in the infographic.
