MEET THE MILLENNIALS
ALL THE INFORMATION YOU NEED
A lot has been written about Millennial parents, their
difference to the previous generation (X) and the
emergence of Dad in a more involved parenting role.
So much in fact that we have spent many hours sifting
through the reports.
So, we thought we’d deliver the most insightful, credible
and provocative reports to you, in one neat package.
Meet the Millennials, in 12 stat-packed pages.
SARAH BARRETT
MANAGING EDITOR OF BABYCENTER
“There is competitiveness
over first milestones from
first words to when their
children count to 10 –
and it extends to the
best brand of buggy
and the size and design
of their children's
footwear. Uploading
images of baby clothing,
post-pregnancy figures
and photogenic families
fosters a culture of
competitiveness.”

GEN Y
“The generation that watched their parents and elders blow up
everything they had accumulated in a cloud of credit, and, in
a fairly blasé way, bankrupt the planet financially, morally and
ecologically.
The millennial has seen what it means
to 'have everything' and to 'lose
everything.” Marketing 2015
A ‘RENTER GENERATION’ WHICH IS LESS
MATERIALISTIC

THEY CRAVE COLLABORATION AND UNIQUENESS
AND SHUN THE MASSES
Time, honesty,
authenticity, wellness,
individuality are scarce.

A luxury is something
that demonstrates
their own uniqueness,
their experiences,
their ideas,
their story.

Babycentre 2015
JULIE MICHAELSON, HEAD OF GLOBAL SALES,
BABYCENTRE
“Everyone knows Millennial
men are information hungry
and always online (so) when
they become dads, they
want to know how to
decorate a nursery, how to
wear a baby. Brands need to
help these dads feel like
they’re doing a good job of
parenting, supporting them in
their desire to do-it-all.
Companies who do this well
will not only earn dad’s
engagement and loyalty;
they stand a good chance of
earning mum’s respect, too.”

VISTA’S KEY PRINCIPLES FOR
COMMUNICATING TO MILLENNIAL PARENTS
Don’t patronise, involve.
Devise content that will genuinely make their lives easier.
Enable them to celebrate their parent status.
Don’t interrupt and only sell to them 20% of the time.
Excite them about a brand’s principles,
vision and mission.
CAN VISTA HELP YOU BETTER
CONNECT TO TODAY’S PARENT?

Companies who do this well will not only earn dad’s engagement and loyalty; they stand a good chance of earning mum’s respect, too.” Image source: blog.hreonline.com
