The presentation of the owner of Gong Gong Communications was a success. The presentation was on developments in social media, and covered more than I expected.

With a high percentage of the Millennials using the social media, there is a huge market opportunity to engage and thrive in business. To have a share of Millennial target market, certain questions need to be researched and addressed. There is a need for identifying who, how, why, where,when and what is driving that network. Addressing these questions will help to gather a portion of the market. The Millennial market is large with its presence in both national and international zones. While marketing products to Millennials, there is need to understand their manifesto. The manifesto of Millennial is unique, with particular needs topping up the list.
The use of inbound marketing such as blogs, videos and outbound marketing such as pop-up ads is essential. A share of Millennial market is achievable in case these strategies are used. The Millennial presence in social media exists over various platforms. Some of these are Facebook, with the highest number of users, and Instagram.
