Millenials are people born between the early 80s and 2000, and they are the first digital generation. This target group is extremely interesting when marketing your product/services, and affiliate marketing can help getting the best out of it. In this article we will give you a few recommendation in order to succeed.

Affiliate Marketing is the ideal channel since it offers you the possibility to work with different affiliates using different sources of traffic from a single point of contact.
- Stay up-to-day or let affiliates do it for you
Millennials are a dynamic target using emerging technology and digital platforms. In order to get the best out of the new channels you have to stay on top of the new trends. Another option is to rely on affiliates who are constantly looking for new sources of traffic.

- User Generated Content
The message you are transmitting to your potential users through the marketing channels has to be consistent and generate trust. Millennials are more likely to rely on user-generated content from their family, friends or even people they don’t know than content generated by a company. In this case, working with affiliate marketers will bring you all their expertise in prelander creation to warm up the potential clients.
- Video to advertise
Is a fact that video is becoming one the preferred media format for Internet users. Millennials are not an exception to this, so generating the right content and finding the right targeting can make video a powerful advertising tool. It is important to take in account that a big percentage of users watch videos in mobile devices using their 2G/3G/4G, so watch out when generating video content.
