A new report from consulting firm Ernst & Young has urged brands not to ignore Baby Boomers when it comes to their targeting of consumers. Jenny Young from EY notes that Baby Boomers account for 25 per cent of the population, and that 20 per cent of them spend at least 20 hours online each week. Young says media and entertainment companies need to broaden their customer strategies to ensure that they are not missing out on what she says is a large market segment. EY has also found that consumers are happy to give personal data to brands and media companies so long as it is kept securely and so long as it is used to improve their customer experience.
