My Company Needs to Work More Toward Engaging Young Folks

As a guy in my seventies, I have not spent all that much time with my cell phone. My grandkids had them as soon as they hit the first grade. Our own kids got them and really hooked onto them in their forties as well. Their mother and I did not, but that has changed in the last few years. And with that, comes the knowlede that most of today’s companies need a good mobile app for their customers. To do that, I had one of our employees find an app developer in Singapore so that we could have that done. I don’t want to miss out, and I do want to reach out to today’s young people. I find millenials to be especially interesting people. They are our future. My own grandkids fit into that category.

Things were pretty simple when I was young. Well, that’s what myself and a lot of other people will tell you. But the truth is that things were pretty tough when we were young for the reason that we didn’t have all the technology help that today’s young people do. We couldn’t do our homework as easily as today’s children and teens do. You can look up anything now within just seconds. You can receive an answer in just seconds or minutes. To find even a small fraction of the same info when I was young, you had to do a lot of research by asking people. You may or may not get an answer. Often, you had to go to the library to leave through many books or look through an encylclopedia. So, my world was reather limited.

I sometimes think about what the future will be like. Will people always use cell phones, or will they be replaced with something else 75 years from now? Right now is a good time for both businesses and customers to connect in ways that they have never been able to do in the past 50 years.
