Apple Earns Top Spot as ‘Most Intimate Brand’ for Millennials

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

MBLM this week published part of its Brand Intimacy 2018 Report, with the preliminary findings focusing on responses from millennials and other young age groups. MBLM surveyed 6,000 consumers and performed 54,000 brand evaluations across 15 total industries in the United States, Mexico, and the United Arab Emirates in order to discover which brands had the deepest emotional connections with respondents.

For millennials (typically individuals in their early twenties to late thirties as of 2018), Apple earned the top spot as the most intimate brand in the U.S. In second place was Disney, followed by YouTube, Target, and Amazon. The top four spots last year for millennials were Disney in first, followed by Amazon, Netflix, and then Apple, so the company has climbed and beaten out a few well-known brands this year.

MBLM said it was “surprised and pleased” to see YouTube climbing the rankings this year.

“We were surprised and pleased to see YouTube as an addition to the top three most intimate brands for millennials this year,” stated Mario Natarelli, managing partner, MBLM. “We believe its rise is due to our culture’s continued need for escape and the brand’s immediate, diverse content, personalities and growing offerings in movies and live TV. YouTube is clearly an established ritual in the lives of many millennials today.”

A younger age group of individuals between 18 and 24 years old kept Apple as their most intimate brand, but listed Amazon in second, then YouTube, PlayStation, Starbucks, Nintendo, Google, Netflix, Coca Cola, and Walmart.

This is just a snapshot of the larger Brand Intimacy 2018 Report, which MBLM said it will be sharing next week, on March 13. Since Apple has earned the top spot in two important age groups, it’s expected for the company to sit at number one for the overall rankings. For the 2017 list, Apple was MBLM’s “top-ranked brand overall” and earned high marks in various categories like “can’t live without” and frequency of use.

Boats and bros: Bitcoin’s millionaire millennials smell like the 1980s


Here come the Bitcoin bros, partying hard and snarfing some marijuana cigarettes, or whatever 20-year-old millionaires do. Except, this isn’t the 80s and we can’t prove there’s any cocaine. A recent yacht party saw 600 enthusiasts travel to exotic Thailand in a swank affair complete with cryptocurrency-themed music and plenty of booze. While the party-goers’ vessel steamed across the ocean, Bitcoin was making waves of its own. The popular cryptocurrency’s value plummeted thousands of dollars in mere hours, which certainly shifted many of the passengers’ fortunes by millions.

Study: Millennials most concerned about losing their jobs to robots


Smartsheet last week released its “State of Automation 2017” study which provides a breakdown of industry attitudes toward automation.

The study was based on a survey conducted on behalf of Smartsheet by Market Cube and took into account answers provided by 1,000 information workers. Respondents were considered information workers if they were over the age of 18, spend at least half of their day…

Millennials: The generation that knows everything and nothing


Nestled firmly between old and new, millennials are the middle child of the technology industry. On one hand, we have our parents and grandparents, who grew up with landline phones, or no phones at all. On the other hand, we have Gen Z who were brought into the world basically knowing how to use an iPhone. Millennials have it differently – we’re torn between two worlds. A Wall Street Journal article this week tells the story of 23-year-old Anna Dennis and her struggles registering to vote on a new same-sex marriage law. She has no clue how to cast her vote…
