Kernaussage 1 von 6

The coming generation of customers could spell the end for many companies.

Whether you know them as twenty-somethings, Generation Y or Millenials, one thing is certain: young people today are a very different breed from their parents. Marketers have truly struggled to win them over in recent years, which has earned them another, rather appropriate name: Generation Content.

Generation Content, or simply Generation C, are entitled, fickle and notoriously difficult to please. If a company makes a single misstep, they’re liable to lose this generation’s loyalty completely. Nokia learned this the hard way during their desperate campaign against smartphone supergiant Apple.

By bombarding customers with their criticisms of the iPhone (“You can’t replace the battery!”, “It breaks easily!”), Nokia hoped to recapture their old customers. But their plan failed miserably.

Generation C appreciated Apple’s innovation and sleekness, and didn’t appreciate Nokia telling them that they were wrong. So they turned away from Nokia, and the company flopped.

This is one example of many where Generation C proved to be a nightmare for businesses. But the worst is yet to come: Generation D. The next round of young people won’t just turn away from companies they don’t like – they will seek them out and destroy them.

Generation D is all too aware of the power that the internet provides them. If a product displeases them, they can easily rally hundreds, thousands or millions of other users around their cause. So what rubs Generation D the wrong way? Three things above all: poor service, a product not living up to its advertising or products that are disappointing compared to their competitors.

Companies that fail to stay in Generation D’s good books risk going under during the customerpocalypse, which, simply put, is a company’s total annihilation. A customerpocalypse occurs when a company sees their customer base disappear before their eyes. If you’re keen to avoid that with your business, read on to find out how best to deal with Generation D.
