Key Insights from the Gen Z Experts: A Recap of Our LinkedIn Live Session


In the fast-paced world of marketing, staying ahead of the curve is essential, especially when it comes to understanding the preferences and behaviors of Gen Z. In our LinkedIn Live session discussing our recent report The Pace of Progress: Gen Z Edition, we had the privilege of hosting a panel of Gen Z experts from Heineken, Imagen Insights, and dentsu. Together, they shared invaluable insights into the mindset of this influential demographic and how brands can effectively engage with them.

Here’s a recap of the key insights shared during the session:

Authenticity is Key

One of the recurring themes throughout the discussion was the importance of authenticity in brand communication. Gen Z consumers value transparency and honesty from brands, and they are quick to sniff out inauthenticity. Brands that can align with Gen Z’s values and speak their language stand to make a meaningful connection.

Purpose-Driven Marketing Matters

Beyond just selling products, Gen Z expects brands to have a purpose and to contribute positively to society. Panellists emphasized the importance of purpose-driven marketing initiatives that resonate with Gen Z’s values and beliefs. Brands that can demonstrate a genuine commitment to social and environmental causes are likely to earn the loyalty of Gen Z consumers.

Embracing Immersive Technologies

As digital natives, Gen Z consumers are highly receptive to immersive technologies such as augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR). Brands that can create engaging and interactive experiences using these technologies have a unique opportunity to capture the attention of Gen Z and create memorable brand experiences.

The Importance of Personalization

With access to a vast array of digital content, Gen Z consumers expect personalized experiences tailored to their interests and preferences. Brands that can leverage data-driven insights to deliver personalized content and recommendations are more likely to cut through the noise and capture the attention of Gen Z.

Our LinkedIn Live session provided valuable insights into the mindset of Gen Z and how brands can effectively engage with this demographic. By prioritizing authenticity, embracing purpose-driven marketing, leveraging immersive technologies, and delivering personalized experiences, brands can position themselves for success in an increasingly competitive landscape.
