The fundamentals of marketing to millennial women

In the sixth episode of Brand Studio Livea series that deals with marketing innovations and moreeight brand leaders will discuss how brands can connect better with the new-age woman

Every year, India adds more women to the internet than any other country, a study recently conducted by Comscore reveals.

The study goes on to say that millennial women are increasingly driving online retail and OTT—approximately 90% of women in the age group of 15-24 can be found on a mobile retail website.

Are brands, therefore, ready to seize the opportunity—an opportunity that will allow them to engage better with women on the internet? If yes, how do they take into account the needs and aspirations of the millennial woman that are significantly different from that of the previous generations? Do marketers need to break free from certain stereotypes? Do they need to devise new communication methods?

What is really the language that marketers need to speak in to ensure that millennial women not only feel understood, but also gratified?

For key insights into the matter, tune in to the Hindustan Times Facebook page at 11 a.m. on December 18.
