Gen Z Wants Companies to Care
Companies that contribute to good social causes have better rankings with Gen Z. The study shows that they are 72% more likely to purchase from companies that support good causes. Generation Z and many people who don’t fall into the category like to make purchases that make them feel good. Knowing that your purchase is making a difference makes all the difference when choosing who to buy from. Contributing to a cause can give your business a boost and make you feel great.
Gen Z Needs a Digital Experience
First and foremost your business needs a well designed website. If your business doesn’t have an actual website or if your website is out-dated and hard to navigate, people will quickly move on.

Having a strong social media presence can tie the digital experience together and boost your sales.
Gen Z Wants You to be Real
