FastCompany: “This is never an attention problem for Gen Z. Generation Z has adapted to quickly evaluate, filter and sort what they see.”

Generation Z looks at brands as walking (living), not just talking.

Since they are a new generation, their preferred brands have not been determined yet. They will be loyal to companies that resonate with Generation Z and for which they have the opportunity to define themselves in some way.

To keep Generation Z loyal, brands need to commit to a business model built on sustainability and equality.

Econsultancy, “How to market to Gen Z”: “Storytelling or speaking may no longer be enough.”

“Keeping the story alive, that is, what brands do is more important than what they say.”

Establish a dialogue with the audience and actively involve them in the story
