Generation Z And What It Means For Your Marketing!
If you aren’t currently tailoring your marketing efforts with Generation Z in mind you are making a mistake. By 2020 Generation Z will make up half of the consumer base in the global market.

They have been raised their entire life with electronic gadgets and that has made Generation Z fundamentally different than the generation of their parents.
