In PaperSpecs’ upcoming free webinar sponsored by Sappi, learn how to create marketing materials that excite and motivate college-bound millennials.

Palo Alto, California – April 25, 2017 – If a project doesn’t speak to its target audience, a designer has failed to do their job. For marketers attempting to reach college-bound millennials, it is imperative to create print projects that are enticing enough to capture this young market’s attention.

For those who want to understand how to market to a young audience, look no further than the field of higher education. The competition between colleges and universities to enroll the best and the brightest minds is intense. Understanding how to approach this young market involves tracking trends, behavior patterns, preferences, misconceptions, and best practices.  In short, a designer must speak to the audience in a “voice” that excites and motivates.

While digital media gets a lot of attention, paper and print are an important part of the marketing mix. To shed light on the potency of print, Sappi has prepared this informative guide for higher education marketing professionals and anyone who creates design projects geared toward a younger audience.

“Marketers must compete with so many different factors for the attention of college-bound millennials,” says Sabine Lenz, founder of PaperSpecs.com. “Sappi North America knows just what types of print projects can grab their attention and leave a lasting impression.”

If you’ve ever had to attract a younger audience with your print designs, this can’t-miss webinar will show you how to leave a millennial audience mesmerized.
