The following infographic developed by EYGM, shows in which we can notice different behaviors.

Digital Influence

Millennials are a generation that evolved with the digital transformation but had been grown with a influence of the previous generation which wasn't as digital as they are, thats why could easily be influenced by popular characters.

Hence, more than half of them still prefer that their favorite artist tell you that brand to buy or where to go, however the trend of real people tell them about real problems, trend that is preferred for their younger siblings Z generation, is increasingly the most used by brands

Consumer Behaviours


The use of cellular and digital technologies is another major differential, since being in contact with technology from the first minute is normal that Generation Z will to solve everything through this preferring the immediacy, efficiency and economy to use it It gives them.

Although this attitude for millennials purchase is not unknown, also they consider traditional shopping or those that start online but ends personally in the physical store as a good option.

Saving time and money is a priority for both generations, but we can say that for Generation Z there is nothing better than go aside with digital options.

Cómo afectan las RRSS a los jóvenes Millennials



Las redes sociales son la nueva manera de recibir información y comunicarse de manera instantánea y cómoda. Los jóvenes Millennials las utilizan diariamente, y están a su alcance durante las 24 horas del día. Las necesitan para quedar con amigos, colgar fotografías, para trabajar, promocionarse, entre muchas otras utilidades.

Existe un grave peligro pues los nuevos internautas en camino no son conscientes de la peligrosidad de las redes sociales. En ellas muestran su mejor yo, se muestran como les gustaría ser y se creen también lo que dicen los demás y esto provoca, muchas veces, confusiones.

How Millennials deal with the economic crisis



Generation Y or Millennials (ages 18-34) are living a difficult situation, in fact, these days are denominated as the worst economy since the Great Depression. But this generation are hopelessly optimistic about the future because they are adaptable. Here's why this generation will make it, despite the odds.

For example, Millennials are engaged with new technologies and they are looking for new ways to work. In fact, new kind of jobs came with Millennials, improving the economy and creating new professions.

Mobile banking: The new way to spend money

Smarphones run the world. Around 2.6 billion people own an smartphone and use it actively. This figure will increase by 2020, that means, 6.1 billion people who will be a 70 percent of the world's population who will have a smartphone. This fact is changing the way to buy, the way to communicate each others and the way to manage the banking.

After a huge survey, 235 people, they have determined some highlights of the mobile consumer in 2015:
  1. Brick and Mortar banking is not too popular, over half of the people surveyed use online banking and over one-third part of them use mobile apps. 
  2. Millennials is the key generation, they are trailblazers using smartphones and mobile apps. They are usually aware of the lastest developments. 
  3. The generarion before Millennials, Gen X, are starting to use mobile apps relationed with the banking but they need to trust in that App to use it, they need to feel secure when it comes of personal data and money. 
  4. User's experience and App's usability is a critical point. If an App runs slowly, users would uninstall it or stop to using it.
Currently, banks have an opportunity to reach young people and to change customer behaviour. If they create a good and a secure App, that fact could be an advantage over their competitors. By 2017 in US, 108 million people will use mobile banking. 

Smartphones are becoming something so personal, and the iGeneration, Millennials who trust in their devices to make a lot of things, are not afraid of the Internet, moreover, banks and brands have a huge job with GenX, because they see this media like a nightmare, the new objective is to convince them to trust on the Internet and to make easy and attractive Apps to engage both generations.
