Where do you normally find today's young people? Wherever they are, they are normally available online. Youth is loaded with gadgets beginning with a mobile phone which is an indispensable part of their life and ending with Pocket PCs, Netbooks, electronic readers, smart phones and many innovative others.
Many young people prefer smart phones like iPhone or Blackberry with advanced Internet browsing options giving opportunity to always stay online, be able to shop online, book pizza, reserve their visit to the dental office via online medical form, communicate with their bank Customer Care and manage the most important aspects of their life.
These online young people make a really good target group for any kind of business. Being active browsers they know everything about your services before actually coming to your office and, in case they address you, it means they are already prepared to make a purchase or reservation and to use your services. This means that these online young people require minimum pre-sales care, which in its turn requires less input from your side.
What is of great importance when targeting this group of young people is to comply with their lifestyle and to be able to satisfy their hunger for quality information.
This has to do not only with the website design, but mainly with its content, which should be first of all very well structured in order to let visitors browse it easily, secondly, contain all the necessary information, thirdly cover all the issues other clients would clarify calling to your office and, last but not least, not present too many details.
Since they are using the Internet to get the information they need, they are free to choose from many options and, to do that, they will wish to study all of the available options. So, yours must be clear and concise.
Having won in this choosing options battle, it's very important not to lose the valuable client when he is already making a booking or a purchase. For this you better have a web form very easy to fill in. This better be a custom web form with drop down menus, so that the young browsing client does not have to type much manually, only the name, postal or email address if required and special notes. Everything else should be available to choose from the drop-downs. Do not forget they might be using a mobile phone to make a reservation!
Unfortunately many businesses run by the generation of a more respectable age using mobile phones for calling and the computer to type in what they used to write down by hand do not always correctly estimate this huge group of potential clients and their needs being confused by their own needs and habits.
Though a little marketing assistance and all the most advanced youth is using your services!
