  • For some years I worked and operated my own business in Marketing for the local scene, but I must admit I was never in youth marketing. This is a trend that I never ventured in and having seen your PPS I realize that it takes a youth to mingle with youths and communicate with them. I always felt that it was a critical market because of the demographic's buying power and because its members' influence on the spending of family members.
    The youth market is viewed as a difficult group to connect with and sell to however organizing such activities as shown in your end video is wise and excellent in communicating a brand message in an appropriate voice and tone. Well Done
