August 11, 2020

As a generation that has been inundated with technology for most of their lives, marketers might assume that targeting strategies to Gen Z do not need to be shifted during the pandemic. We were positioning content to Gen Z with a digital-first lens pre-COVID, so what changes?

AdWeek offers guidance on how empathy and understanding toward this group can help us to be better marketers, purchasing influencers and, dare we say it, friends
