Finding the Perfect Message | Undergraduate Honors Thesis

As the generation shaped by the Internet and the development of new technologies, millennials communicate and engage differently with marketing messages than previous generations. Financial service companies need to learn, adapt and deliver content to attract young millennials to their services. Through focus groups, this study attempted to understand how college-attending millennials ages 19 to 21 felt about financial services. In addition, these focus groups aimed to determine what financial service marketing messages best engaged this demographic and which of these messages had the most potential to persuade millennials to contact a financial advisor.
