In order to help provide an answer to that million-dollar question, we’ve put together a list of brands that are winning with millennials. The Millennial Marketing Top 20 report features research acquired from BERA Brand Management, Forrester and the YouGov brand-monitoring tool, Brand Index. The list includes brands from a variety of markets including restaurant, retail, CPG and travel.  The brands highlighted in the report are best case examples of how to not only generate sales within a younger audience but how to also turn millennials into brand fans and advocates.

Brands like Nike, Old Navy and LG have won millennial love over the past year by implementing Content Excellence® strategies and including the customers in the creation of the marketing, the brand experience and the product itself.  Every brand on the Top 20 List has changed its mind frame from looking at consumers as an audience and instead embracing them as consumer partners.  This new mentality has shifted the way the top brands are engaging with millennials.
