How to Appeal to Millennial Consumers on Amazon
Stay on top of the latest e-commerce and marketplace trends.
It is no secret that millennials receive the brunt of negative stereotypes and assumptions, but this generation is more powerful and critical to your Amazon business than you might think.
Wielding $600 billion in annual spending power, millennials make a majority of their retail purchases online and 91% agree that they are more likely to buy products from Amazon than other e-commerce sites, according to Feedvisor data.
With that spending power projected to exceed $1 trillion by 2020, millennials today are perhaps the most critical consumer segment for Amazon sellers and e-commerce businesses.
