Who are Baby Boomers?

Baby Boomers are individuals who were born between 1946 and 1964, following the end of World War II. In Australia, Baby Boomers make up a significant portion of the population, accounting for approximately 25% of the total population. This generation experienced significant social, economic, and cultural changes, including the rise of popular culture, technological advancements, and political activism. 

As a result, Baby Boomers in Australia share certain defining characteristics, such as a strong work ethic, a sense of civic responsibility, and an appreciation for quality and craftsmanship. They often have significant purchasing power, making them a crucial demographic for businesses to target. Businesses must understand their unique preferences, values, and lifestyles to engage them through promotional and marketing efforts effectively.

Marketing Merchandise Tips for a Boomer Audience

Sometimes it helps to get a general idea of what a target demographic might enjoy. Based on our extensive industry experience, we recommend the following tips and tricks for appealing to your boomer client or peer base.

-Understand their values and preferences: Take the time to research and understand the values, preferences, and lifestyles of the Boomer generation. This will help you choose promotional merchandise that resonates with them.

-Focus on quality: Baby Boomers often appreciate products that are of high quality and built to last. Consider offering merchandise that represents durability, craftsmanship, and reliability.

-Tap into nostalgia: Baby Boomers have a strong sense of nostalgia. Incorporate products that evoke memories from their past, such as retro-style items or classic designs that remind them of their younger days.

-Offer practical and functional items: Choose promotional merchandise that serves a practical purpose in their daily lives. Consider products like reusable water bottles, handy tools, stylish accessories, or convenient tech gadgets that make their lives easier.

-Personalisation and customisation: Baby Boomers appreciate personalised experiences. Offer promotional merchandise that can be customised or personalised with their names, initials, or special messages. This adds a personal touch and makes them feel valued.

-Emphasise health and wellness: Many Boomers prioritise their health and wellness. Consider offering merchandise that aligns with their well-being, such as fitness gear, stress-relief items, or relaxation products like massagers or essential oil diffusers.

-Consider eco-friendly options: Baby Boomers often have a strong environmental consciousness. Offer merchandise that is eco-friendly or sustainable, such as reusable bags, bamboo products, or solar-powered gadgets.

-Highlight technology with simplicity: While Boomers may not be as tech-savvy as younger generations, they still embrace technology. Choose tech gadgets that are user-friendly and cater to their specific needs, such as simplified smartphones or tablets with larger buttons and intuitive interfaces.

-Include educational and informative materials: Baby Boomers are known for their thirst for knowledge. Include educational materials, books, or informative resources related to their interests, hobbies, or personal development.

-Use clear and legible branding: Ensure your branding is clearly visible and easy to read. Baby Boomers often appreciate clear communication and straightforward messaging.

Promotional Products Baby Boomers Will Love

That's why we've found that pop grippers, customised devices that come logo branded and affix to the back of your smartphone, make wonderful cost-effective gifts for boomer-focused expos or events. They help you hold onto your phone while texting or browsing the web, and they stick to almost any device on the market. Best of all, they boast a huge branding area we can print your logo on, making them ideal for any marketing campaign.

Personalised Travel Mugs

Baby boomers are a generation on the go, even as they edge into retirement. We've sold a lot of thermal mugs to boomer-focused organisations as they're daily-use items that can go with a boomer recipient as they travel across the country or simply to the shops down the road. As with other products in the Cubic Promote range, these travel mugs are easy to brand with a decent print area and the option to decorate using laser engraving instead for a more refined look. Boomers love their tea and coffee, so let them see your brand every time they grab a cuppa, no matter where they are!
