Today In Communication History
On this date in 1985, the Major League Baseball All-Star Game, televised on NBC-TV, was the first program broadcast in stereo by a TV network.
In 1900, the term ‘television‘ is coined by Constantin Perskyi at the International Electricity Congress, part of the 1900 Paris Exhibition.
Quote Of The Day
‘I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.’
Young Americans Not Satisfied With the National Media
Young Americans are “less enthusiastic” about the news than their older counterparts, and are less voracious consumers of news, according to a report [pdf] from the Pew Research Center and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. Just 27% of 18-29-year-olds reported following news all or most of the time, about one-third of the proportion of adults aged 65 and older (77%). Moreover, only 1 in 10 18-29-year-olds say they trust the information from the national media a lot, compared to 24% of those 65 and up. And the oldest respondents (65+) are more than three times as likely as the youngest to say that the national media do a very good job of keeping them informed.
Previous research from Pew has shown that Millennials’ perception of the national news media has eroded at a much faster rate this decade than other age groups’ perceptions. Not surprisingly, there’s a wide gulf in age groups when examining the sources used to access the news. According to this latest study, 85% of respondents aged 65 and older said they often get the news from TV, compared to just 27% of 18-29-year-olds. By contrast, half of 18-29-year-olds report “often” getting the news online, more than double the proportion of the older set (20%). The disparity for print newspapers is even more stark: Americans aged 65 and older are almost 10 times more likely than those aged 18-29 to often get the news from a print newspaper (48% and 5%, respectively). No wonder print newspaper ads have far more influence among older than younger Americans.
One of the more notable findings in the study relates to loyalty to news sources. Respondents were almost evenly split in their feelings of loyalty, with 51% claiming to be loyal and 48% not particularly loyal. Still, 76% said they usually turn to the same sources when they get news, while 23% don’t turn to the same sources.
That translates to 48% of adults being “very loyal” – claiming loyalty and going to the same sources – versus 18% being “non-loyal” (saying they’re not loyal and don’t go to the same sources). Those findings are interesting in light of new data from Gallup, which finds that Americans are more likely today to turn to specific sources for news than they were just a few years ago. As Gallup puts it, “Americans are becoming less likely to view their news sources in terms of how they get news — radio, television, print or internet — and more in terms of who specifically provides it.” The most commonly mentioned media organization was Fox News (9%), followed by CNN (8%) and then social media (6%).
Social Media Research
Purchase Influencers Among Millennials
Social media ads have seen rapid spending increases in recent years, and that increasing flow of money is having a profound effect on social advertising’s status as a consumer purchase influencer.
Social ads’ stated influence on purchases has risen considerably over the past 2 years across all demographic groups identified in the report. As a result, social ads now are said to influence purchases for more American adults than radio ads, despite having lower reach among the adult population.
Not surprisingly, social ads have their largest impact on youth. This year, 1 in 5 Millennials (18-34) surveyed report having made a purchase in the prior 6 months due to ads on social networks. That marks a 65% jump from the 2014 study, in which fewer than 1 in 8 (12.1%) reported such an influence from social ads.
That increase catapults social ads into the realm of the top purchase influencers for Millennials. Ads on social platforms outrank direct mail, radio, print and a host of other media as stated purchase influencers for this demographic, and are closing in on the top paid medium, TV advertising (cited by 25.8% as having led to a purchase).
Part of social ads’ rise in perceived influence can probably be attributed to their greater presence. In a new addition this year, the study ranks the media in which consumers feel most exposed to advertising. The top response for Millennials? Social media.
The next-leading location for Millennials’ ad exposure is smartphones, a result that is likely tied to the prominence of social media use on these devices, and which makes sense in light of recent research indicating that Millennials believe ad clutter is a bigger issue on smartphones than on other devices. That exposure to advertising is also having an affect on perceived purchase influence. Mobile display ads, particularly smartphone display ads, have risen up the purchase influence rankings across most demographic groups analyzed in the report, though the trend hasn’t been as pronounced for affluents, who still lean most towards traditional media.
Still, TV ads continue to be the largest purchase influencer, maintaining strong impact across generations even as youth gravitate away from traditional TV. The same can’t be said for online video ads, which surprisingly have seen little uptick in stated purchase influence despite widening reach.
Five ways you can attract millennials.
Be in as Many Places as Possible
Posting your product/services on the most common sites isn’t enough to find target audience. To attract the millennial, you have to engage followers in a range of places. You have to advertise, via mobile and social, in multiple spaces at once. This has to be a regular, consistent process. You need to be constantly placing your product/services via a range of sources.
Mobile advertising is it. And it’s no surprise because the mobile revolution has already happened and over half of all users are now browsing the Internet exclusively via mobile devices. There are two aspects to recruiting millennials via mobile you have to take into account. 1. Make sure your ads are optimized for mobile. Millennials are the most likely group to be using a mobile device, so make sure you are catering to that. Not optimizing is one of the prime ways to drive away millennials. 2. Also, you need to invest primarily in mobile advertising. Stop spending on traditional forms of marketing and focus on mobile instead.
Use Video to Tell Your Story
Millennials are turning to video marketing in order to find out what can make them stand out from the crowd. This is something you can do with your campaign to attract Millennials. Invest more on video. You only need an extremely short video. It can be literally just a few seconds of content to bring in your target audience. Create short videos to give people a snapshot of your company and brand. Encourage potential millennial customers to find out more about what you’re all about. It doesn’t have to cost a lot of money to create a video. In fact, it can take no more than a few minutes to actually get it done, if you already know how to use the software. Just make sure you have done your research and you know your target audience.
The key to a successful campaign is to engage with the user as soon as you can. Don’t prompt users to engage, begin the dialogue immediately. In terms of encouraging promising millennials through your doors, whether virtual or brick-and-mortar, you should make it easy to find out about you and what you are offering. This means that it should take one click to find out about you. Your website should be simple to use and all relevant information should be available via your site.
Make it hard for people to find out about you and they are not going to waste their time.
It takes two to make a conversation. Businesses are discovering that by replying to everyone who interacts with them they are more likely to turn customers into brand ambassadors.If you don’t reply to them they are going to have a poor view of your company. Respond quickly and they will buy from you and they will still ensure that you have a positive brand image. And that positive brand image is more likely to encourage other millennials to visit you as well.
Attracting Millennials to Your Company
Many companies wonder why millennials don’t want to come to them. The sad truth is that this is happening because they are not speaking to millennials on their level. They are not communicating with them via avenues that they are going to notice. Get smart. Talk to them on their level.
