Millennials may be known for always using the newest forms of social media, but this generation is surprisingly open to old-school email. A new study on shopper behavior by Epsilon marketing revealed that 43% of Millennials are using email to find all kinds of products and services. Compare that to the mere 32% of shoppers of other ages using email for shopping purposes. As Millennials are reaching their mid-twenties and thirties, they appear to be growing up and discovering the trusted tactic of email marketing. Adweek.com shared results from similar Epsilon studies to show how Millennials spend their time when they’re spending money.
