Millennials are quickly becoming the largest and most influential generation of consumers. They are always connected, always on their phones, and always texting. Significantly more millennials than members of any other generation use their phone for texting. Currently, more millennials use their phone for text messaging than any other generation. In fact, 43 percent of millennials say that texting is just as meaningful as a voice conversation with someone over the phone.
With a 99 percent open rate, it is clear why text messaging is the most popular communication channel among millennials. The typical teenager sends and receives over 3,339 texts per month, and older teens text more than 181 times per day. Millennials are also about twice as likely as Baby Boomers to share mobile phone numbers with marketers. So why are not all companies using text messaging to reach this target demographic?
