#22 - Decoding Generation Z: How Zoomers will Redefine the Future of eCommerce & Digital Shopping w/ Will Weeks
For a generational cohort that’s been talked, tweeted, and debated about, there is still a lot to discuss and uncover about Gen Z, what matters to them, and who they really are. Considering this cohort has a disposable income of $360 billion in the US alone, it’s imperative for eCom brand owners to understand this generation’s views on eCommerce & how they shop online.
In this episode, Scott & Ray chat with Will Weeks, Head of Brand and Communications at Student Beans, to really get to know Gen Z, what makes them tick, what makes them likely to convert from cart to purchase, and how much they’ll affect the future of eCommerce and online shopping (hint: this thrifty generation holds A LOT of power).
Will breaks down all the hot trends Gen Z are raving (or concerned) about - like the Buy Now, Pay Later model and how it’s affecting their budget and financial situations, social commerce & live shopathons, and the rise of hustle culture among their peers. This episode also explores why, contrary to popular belief, Gen Z are still interested in physical retail and interacting with storefronts. So find out how to integrate the best of eCom with the best of the mall into one experience!
If you’re still unsure how to spark interest & convert Gen Z, tune in to this enlightening episode. You’ll understand what compels Gen Z to trust and fall in love with a brand and how you can connect with them by understanding and offering solutions to their everyday struggles.
