Who’s Your Audience? Spring Edition

3 Min Read

Are you spending or saving? It’s likely to be a mix of both as we start to enter the warmer months and welcome in spring. Even though there have been ongoing rumors of a recession on the way, the economy has stayed resilient. Retail sales give us a gauge on the overall health of the economy, and an article by MarketWatch revealed that they increased by three percent at the start of 2023—a clear signal that the economy is holding up the fort. 

All things considered, this spring, consumers are likely to approach spending with trepidation. A trend report by Retail Dive explored the changing customer sentiment, sharing that experiences will continue to win customers over, with shoppers prepared to spend big on services at the expense of big-ticket items. Take Spring Break for example—there’s continued pent-up demand this year, with consumers willing to spend up to $2,000 per person on travel. That’s not counting stocking up on auxiliary items like new swimsuits and travel accessories for the big trip. So, what does spring mean for building audience segments to target for your upcoming campaign? Keep reading for ready made segments, all accessible via MNTN Performance TV.
