Go ahead and keep segmenting your audience into generational groups: Millennials, Gen Z, Baby Boomers, to name a few.
It’s cool to brand each generation as if they’re unique on their own. It’s a marketing thing, I guess.
However, as some things can be attributed to each generation mindset, it turns out, most of the “Group Cohesion Score” is not related to generational groups.
I’ve recently received a newsletter by Bob Hoffman where he points out something that I’ve experienced time and time again when conducting my own marketing experimentations.
Here’s the takedown of the study conducted by BBH Labs where it shows beyond any question that there’s fragile cohesion between these “marketing generation groups”:
