If you are a business targeting an audience composed primarily of young women, we’ve composed a list of six tips that might be helpful in your advertising campaigns.

1. Be Honest

Generation Y, and especially the women in this group, is composed of people who appreciate up-front, honest communication. Don’t overinflate the benefits of your product or service just for a sale. This will not win you repeat customers in any market.

2. Know Your Audience

Tell them how your product or service will benefit them, and make it personal. Advertising campaigns should reflect your audience’s likes, dislikes, and personal values as much as possible.

3. No Pressure

Lay off the heavy sales tactics and work to care about your customer. Develop a relationship with them. Women want to make their own decisions and being overly aggressive could drive them away for good.

4. Be Informative

This group is known for being Internet savvy researchers. Give them the information they need to make an intelligent decision without making them look elsewhere.

5. Treat Them Right

Word-of-mouth is one of the most important factors in decision-making for this group. Make sure you treat the customers you have well because others in this market will be looking to them for purchasing advice.
