Young people are often targeted heavily in advertising campaigns for new and growing products, and there are several reasons that companies might go down this marketing road. Brand strategists could feel that going for the youth market makes the product seem more attractive, or “sexy”. There is also the commonly‐held view that young consumers are easier to attract, because they have less fixed views on brands and therefore are not inhibited in their choices by brand loyalty.
