Pro Millennial Micro-Generation
The Pro Millennial micro-generation was born into an era of self-reliance and individuality, and their priorities have shifted in a very real way now that adulthood has kicked in. This group is looking to save money and focus on personal and financial stability. Brands that appeal to this generation should focus on products and services that promote financial stability and help them with their personal goals.
Mid Millennial Micro-Generation
The Mid Millennial micro-generation grew up in a time of helicopter parenting and is currently experiencing a quarter-life crisis, trying to find their place in the world. This group is focused on self-improvement and positively impacting society. Brands that appeal to this generation should focus on providing value and aligning with their values. They are more likely to buy from brands that align with their values and make a positive impact on society.
Nouveau Millennial Micro-Generation
The Nouveau Millennial micro-generation grew up in a highly post-materialistic era and prioritizes experiences over possessions. This group is looking for unique and innovative experiences that are not limited to social media. Brands that appeal to this generation should focus on providing unique experiences and engaging with them through unconventional marketing and advertising strategies.

They are more likely to buy from brands that align with their values and make a positive impact on society. They want to be engaged in unique experiences that are not limited to social media. Brands must meet Millennials where they are, and find new and unconventional ways to engage with them through content marketing.
