An Outsiders Way In
Millennials are the largest generation in the U.S. and are a diverse group. They have different backgrounds, experiences, and opinions about many things—including work. Because of this diversity, you can’t assume that all millennials think or do things the same way you do. For example, it’s essential to understand that millennials may be accustomed to getting their information from social media or other “outlets” like blogs, podcasts, or infomercials rather than traditional sources like newspapers or television shows. This means they may not be receptive to marketing messages tailored directly for them by an advertising agency or a brand owner. Who doesn’t understand the needs of today’s youth marketer audience.
Realize that you’re on the outside
As a millennial, you have a unique perspective on life. You’re the largest generation in today’s workforce and are constantly told that you’re unique, different, and essential to society. But really? Who cares?
Millennials are here for your business—not the other way around. We know what we want from our careers and how we want to be treated at work, so don’t expect us to suddenly change just because of some marketing campaign or new HR initiative. Why should anyone else care if it sounds like we’re not interested in being part of this corporate world?
Understand that millennials are not all the same.
You might think all millennials are the same, but they’re not. Millennials come from different backgrounds and have different values and interests. Some may be motivated by money or status, while others want to impact society through their work.
Suppose you want to understand what makes a millennial tick. In that case, it’s essential to look at the data available on their demographics. But also how they answer questions in surveys and focus groups—even if they don’t respond directly. There are ways of inferring their answers based on other factors. Such as age or gender distribution within a group (more women than men).
Learn about the technology millennials grew up using.
- Millennials are more likely to use social media.

Ask for help from a millennial or a thirty-something who is plugged into this generation’s thinking.
To get the most from this book, you must ask for help from a millennial or a thirty-something. Who is plugged into this generation’s thinking? You can talk to your kids, friends, or coworkers in person. You may have access to a more direct line of communication with someone. Who have been through similar experiences and could give advice based on their own experiences and research on millennials.
Suppose you need someone close by who fits the bill but still wants some guidance on how best to communicate with these young people. In that case, there are plenty of online tools: Quora (which focuses more on questions than answers) and Reddit (where users submit content based on popular topics). Use them wisely! The same goes for professional sources like social media managers. Whose job is crafting messages and keeping tabs on what each generation thinks about current events? Hence, they know when/how best to share their thoughts with others outside their inner circle/home base – both geographically speaking (to reach out globally) and socially speaking (to reach out locally).
Keep the lines of communication open with your workforce, clients, and customers of all generations.
Communication is key to the success of your business. You can’t do it alone and must learn how to communicate with each generation to keep things running smoothly.
Millennials are known for being tech-savvy with smartphones, tablets, and even wearables like smartwatches. They also tend to be more interested in social media than older generations. Who prefers texting or emailing over calling someone out of the blue? Baby boomers grew up listening to AM radio while driving down the highway. They took their time to make decisions because they didn’t have access everywhere (like Millennials). Boomers have been around since before we had internet access, so they’re used to patience, which makes them great listeners! Generation Xers were born during the Vietnam War era, so they appreciate honesty over deception; however, there’s still room for improvement here because many don’t know how much information should be shared online without getting caught red-handed lying about something important enough that could ruin someone else’s life forever if exposed later down the line… finally Gen Z’ers grew up watching Netflix shows instead reading books which lead us into our next point:
To communicate with millennials, it’s essential to understand their perspective.
To communicate with millennials, it’s essential to understand their perspective. Millennials are the largest generation in history and have a unique way of looking at things. You need to understand where they’re coming from to do this right. Here are some ways that will help:
- Understand how technology has changed how we live our lives. Millennials grew up with technology from infancy; it’s part of who we are now as adults. They didn’t grow up without smartphones or computers—they’ve always had them! So when it comes time for your presentation or discussion group meeting (or whatever type of meeting). Don’t assume anything about what your audience knows or doesn’t know about technology because chances are good that everyone in attendance has been using these tools since childhood (and probably even before). This means that unless someone is really old-school (like my grandparents). No one should feel left out during any conversation explicitly related to new ideas like artificial intelligence versus human consciousness or whether robots will ever become sentient beings capable of feeling compassion toward humans…
The point of this article is to help you understand how millennials think and communicate—in addition to knowing what questions to ask and what types of responses will help you connect with them correctly.
