Then Life Happened

  1. 1. THEN LIFE HAPPENED MILLENNIALS OUT OF THEIR FORMATIVE YEARS AND INTO THE FIRE Volumes of research on millennials have painted a picture of a paradoxical cohort: self-entitled, stressed and exhibiting a lax work ethic, yet inclusive, optimistic and entrepreneurial. It’s complicated—which is why Resource/Ammirati decided to meet millennials’ complexity head-on with a research approach at once empirical and theoretical, modern and historical. We identified the Jungian archetypes that are statistically most dominant among millennials and explored the sociocultural and economic reasons those archetypes rose to the top. These archetypes provide insight into the ways in which people organize understanding of themselves and the world, which is critically important in an OPEN world where consumers expect to be heard. MILLENNIALS’ FOUR DOMINANT JUNGIAN ARCHETYPES FREEDOM ADVENTUROUS EGO SOCIAL BUILDING A BRAND FOR THE HERO BRANDS DOING I T WE L L : WALTUO ORDER HERO DISCIPLINED ARDENT EXPRESSIVE GREGARIOUS IMAGINATIVE ICONOCLASTIC INDIVIDUALISTIC AUTHENTIC ORIGINAL SKILLED COMPETITIVE 1 2 For this generation more than any other, brands have social contracts. Make your corporate social responsibility initiatives part of your brand, not a sideline, and enable your Hero fans to identify with and contribute to your causes. Stress levels are high for older millennials, so demonstrate to the achievement-oriented Hero how your products, services and business are at the top of their game and will help them get to the top of theirs. EXPLORER BUILDING A BRAND FOR THE EXPLORER 1 2 Explorers prize autonomy, but the economy has thwarted rites of passage into adulthood for many millennials. Empower the Explorer to achieve independence in small acts and/or unconventional ways. Assure millennial Explorers that in a conformist age, you’re with them as they journey down the road less traveled, and associate your brand with movement, free will and the pursuit of higher truths. BRANDS D O I N G I T WE L L : CREATOR BUILDING A BRAND FOR THE CREATOR 1 2 The challenge for many millennials is to create and self-express, not out of obsessive FOMO (fear of missing out), but in order to forge an identity and do work that is authentically one’s own. Align your brand with the Creator’s quest for self-knowledge. Millennials are the first generation to have their entire life, juvenile faux pas and all, exposed to the public, but Creators need the possibility of reinvention. Provide ways for your Creator fans to inhabit another world and persona temporarily. BRANDS DOING I T W E L L : BUI LDING A BRAND FOR THE LOVER 1 2 Millennials are nothing if not egotistically developed, so the Lover brand’s role is to encourage a fuller giving into Eros (not Ego)—passionate involvement with a cause, culture, place, idea or set of experiences. Millennials expect more from brands than other cohorts: brands should know their Lover fans personally, court them deftly and facilitate more social graph intimacy and interactivity. BRANDS DOING I T W E L L : LOVER Does your brand know how to communicate with the millennial Hero? How to be a Creator brand for the millennial generation?
