Bill Lerner on Optimizing your Business for Millennial Consumers: a Short Guide

One of the biggest factors shaping marketing strategies designed to hone a corporate brand into a preferred pick is that of philanthropy.

New York, NY - May 16, 2019 /MarketersMedia/ —

Based in New York and CEO of iPark, Bill Lerner knows the secrets that brands use to attract today's most important consumer group, the Millennials. To nurture a business culture that engages this segment of consumers, means having the best strategy that embraces accurate, informative, and interactive content, while making sure the corporate voice is heard everywhere. Increasingly, that tends to be online, but this discerning audience still likes a “bricks and mortar” touchstone as well.

One of the biggest factors shaping marketing strategies designed to hone a corporate brand into a preferred pick is that of philanthropy. A New York Times article focused on the Newman's Own brand label redesign to emphasize that 100 percent of profits go to charity. The article continues to underscore the message, noting that, "Millennials especially have demonstrated a propensity to favor companies with a generous mission." Reinforcing the significance of that concept, the Deloitte Millennial Survey of 2017 found 74 percent of these astute consumers believe businesses have the potential to solve challenges, but just 59 percent feel that corporate leaders are acting accordingly, leaving a gap for observant organizations to step in and win approval of this influential audience. Keeping brands honest is a hallmark of this digital native cohort, with 70 percent compelled to share feedback about a brand experience, good and bad, via social media.

The largest generation in history, the group packs a one trillion-dollar purchasing punch according to a Wall Street Journal article. Impacting everything from more casual dress adopted by financial advisors to a simplified communication style across the board, product and service purveyors are toeing the style lines set by the age-defined culture to engage pocketbooks, paychecks, and online posts. All of the pieces of a brand's content strategy must paint a picture of authenticity that delivers, making lives easier, more enjoyable, and more entertaining. In agreement with an April 21, 2017 Forbes article citing three key principles for optimizing strategic marketing aimed at earning customer loyalty, Bill Lerner highlights the need for presenting a core idea, filling an unmet need, and developing a culture paralleling current markets as essential items for a relevant business.

Bill Lerner applied lessons taught by his father in the parking industry to his contemporary parking empire, changing, adapting, and innovating as a respected leader and mentor. President and CEO of Imperial Parking Systems, updating to the iPark brand to reflect technological awareness, Mr. Lerner relies on four decades of experience reaching for higher standards and improving the customer journey, both in business and charitable causes. His Billy4Kids program has provided more than 4,000 pairs of shoes to children in developing countries to prevent diseases contracted by bare feet. Billy Lerner is also recognized for his work by the Annual Edajo Gives Hope Gala and St. Mary's Healthcare System for Children.

Pell's appeal pitted word of former choirboy against priest

Aug 23, 2019

CANBERRA, Australia — Cardinal George Pell's appeal against his convictions for child molestation was largely a question of who the jury should have believed, his accuser or a senior priest whose church role was likened to Pell's bodyguard. Pell's accuser was a 13-year-old choirboy when he alleged that he was abused by then-Melbourne Archbishop Pell at the city's St. Patrick's Cathedral in December 1996 and February 1997. Monsignor Charles Portelli was a master of ceremonies at the 11 a.m. Sunday Masses where the choir sang. A chorister in the 1990s, David Dearing, told police that Portelli, Pell's right-hand man, was...

China bans movies, actors from prominent Taiwan film awards

Aug 23, 2019

BEIJING — China said Wednesday it was banning Chinese movies and actors from participating in Taiwan's Golden Horse Awards, one of the Asian film industry's most prestigious honors, as Beijing ramps up economic and political pressure on the island it claims as its own territory. The one-sentence announcement on the microblog of China Film News, a newspaper affiliated with government film regulator, gave no reason for the suspension, but it comes amid rising tensions over Taiwan's refusal to recognize being part of Chinese territory to eventually be brought under Beijing's rule. Even without the ban, Chinese artists might have found...

Aug 23, 2019

BEIJING — Li Peng, a former hard-line Chinese premier best known for announcing martial law during the 1989 Tiananmen Square pro-democracy protests that ended with a bloody crackdown by troops, has died. He was 90. China's official Xinhua News Agency said Li died Monday of an unspecified illness. His death was not announced until Tuesday evening.
