The Baby Boomers

x Mistake to think they are phasing or slowing down but are entering
new life phases (e.g. using the internet, listening to iPod, using
TiVo)

x Grown up during times of recession and corporate downsizing led to
having a more cautious economic outlook
x From the marketing viewpoint, Gen Xers are a more sceptical bunch
which tends to research products before they consider a purchase
x Seek success, less materialistic, family coming first, prize
experiences
x MEC appeals to Gen X consumers since they value family, life
experience, and environmental sustainability
Millennials
x Millennials (or Generation Y) are the 10.7 million children of the
Canadian baby boomers, born between 1977 and 2000

x Buying power for younger millennials are increasing and as the
older ones are graduating and having careers, able to expand their
spending
x Fluency and comfort with computer, digital, and internet technology
Generational Marketing
x Marketers need to form more precise, age-specific segments within
each group as well as lifestyle, life stage, or common values
segments

habits of non-traditional households, because they are growing more rapidly
