Your three-step guide to better engage customers

Make the age of your customers work in your favour

No matter the age of your customers, it’s important to know they all have different ways of shopping. Understanding their traits and preferences can allow you to:

  • Create targeted marketing campaigns around your highest value customers
  • Evaluate and update your products, service and price offerings
  • Make business decisions around growth and expansion

For example, across Australia, categories that garner the most attention from Baby Boomers are: automotive (57.7%), food and groceries (42.6%), mobile phones (35.2%) and travel (30.1%).¹

To help refine your business and marketing strategy using the age segments of your customers, we’ve put together the below article and a quick guide on how to help understand and best engage with them.
