Millenials vs. Centennials

Don’t Be Misled by Generational Characterizations

Millennials get too much credit. There, I said it. In just the past week alone I’ve personally read about or heard someone berating Millennials for eating Tidepods; praising them for their efforts to ignite change in our nation’s gun laws; and chastising them for being “snowflakes.”

The Value of Data Visualization By Sarah Brich, Design Technologist

And, why wouldn’t it? Once the buyer hits the shopping cart with payment information and reveals their shipping address, those e-retailers are off and running with a wealth of conversion data beyond digital campaign metrics! Who purchased, monetary gains, seasonality, trends and cross selling opportunities are just a few of the data points that will also fuel future CRM programs.
