It’s undeniable that influencer marketing budgets are predominantly allocated towards the millennial generation. Millennials make up about 10 million consumers in Canada and have embraced online shopping and social media with open arms – so, it’s no surprise that they hold massive power in influencing both younger and older generations.
However, most marketers are only thinking about reaching younger demographics, and because of this, baby boomers are often forgotten. What they don’t realize is that boomers consistently outspend millennials – with more disposable income, their total buying power is around $2.6 trillion every year. These consumers aren’t just spending money, they’re also embracing technology. In fact, research shows that more than 80% of baby boomers believe that social media improves their lives.
That’s why we’ve compiled this list of the top 50 influencers over 50 years old. Don’t snooze on this massive demographic; with inclusivity and diversity at the forefront of many brand’s messaging nowadays, it’s important to represent all types of consumers, no matter their age!
