Pleasing customers is what every company aims at, there are many ways to do it but the same strategies can not be applied to all the customers!

Young customers have a different approach towards advertising compared to others, therefore it is difficult for companies to make a space for themselves in their heart!

Companies put a lot of effort in order to attract young customers and one of the chief strategies is staying updated, be it in consideration to branding, marketing, advertising, or selling of the product. For all these factors to be satisfied we need to be aware of some terms that Gen Z (slang used for everyone born after the year 1996) is using these days!

Some of the terms have been prevailing for a very long time but being used in different ways in the present. Let’s dive deeper!
