THE RESEARCH DIRECTOR Sales & Marketing Associate TYLER PLAHANSKI took to the company's Hot Topics blog to alert advertisers the conundrum of becoming a part of the prized 25-54 demo: "A few months ago I turned 25 years old ... Beginning this summer, advertisers will be hyper-focused on driving my purchasing decisions. Don’t get me wrong, there is ROI proven in targeting 25-54, but I often think to myself 'I’m ALREADY highly desired?' Since my 25th birthday, I’ve been to six weddings and have had one free weekend. I couldn’t spend my money if I tried!"
He then offered words of advice to two camps. "Advertisers: At some point (hopefully soon) I will be a highly desired target … but not today. Millennials move quickly, and often times at the expense of discretionary spending power.: And "Broadcasters: If you have a young 25-54 audience, use it to your advantage! But certainly don’t regret having 55+ listeners. Showcase their spending power."
