Millennials and B2B Marketing

In a B2B Report on millennials published by Sacunas (2016), it describes millennials as “digital by default”. Although this statement can be made through mere observation of practice and trends, businesses need concrete evidences to support such idea in order to logically strategize. The most important channels for researching new products and services are search engines, vendor websites, and social media for 56% of the millennials (Sacunas, 2016). In addition, social media is used by 85% of millennials to look into products and services for their jobs
and companies.
 
According to a survey conducted by American Press Institute (2015), 88% of millennials get news from Facebook. While Ronnie Charrier (2016), a Social Media Strategist, mentioned in his article “Millennials And Social Media: It’s More Complicated Than You Think” that millennial women are more likely to use Instagram than Snapchat and Twitter.
 
Videos are believed to be the most effective form of online content and social media (Sacunas, 2016), contributing to improved memory recall. It’s then safe to assume that the majority of millennials are visual learners. Since millennials are after transparency, values, relevancy, and engagement (IBM Institute for Business Value, 2015), companies should only create and release meaningful and exemplary online content for better branding.

Tourism in Japan

Japan expects a rise in tourist arrivals in 2016. The country gradually opening itself up to the world intrigues people. Its rich history fused with the interesting modern practice shapes today’s Japanese culture. The balance between hard work and nightlife makes the city unique, while World Heritage Sites are still actively preserved in different prefectures. Japan appears to be an alloy of the old and new. Kyoto is famous for temples and shrines. Nagoya, despite being an industrial city, has a gem in it–the Nagoya castle. Osaka is known for the Universal Studios, but people can also see there the Osaka castle and other tourist spots. Hakone, located at the foot of Mt. Fuji, is popular for its fine hot springs. These are only a few of the beautiful places to visit in Japan.
 
Odakyu limited express train “Romancecar”, which links Shinjuku to Hakone, Enoshima and Kamakura, can only be availed through advance booking. There are various means of transportation that people can try as well, like Shinkansen, regular trains, and domestic ferries, and bicycles.
 
Experience the charm of the “Land of the Rising Sun” yourself. You’ll probably visit Japan more than once!
