For marketers, the importance of generational differences cannot be understated. Our formative years shape our understanding of the world, the way we interact with one another and our ability to respond to daily stresses and challenges. 

However, generational differences (and cut-offs!) aren’t always an exact science. In fact, sometimes, two generations will merge. 

Confused? Don’t worry – that’s where we’re here to help.

As we turn our attention to the future, and settle into 2024, a new generation has emerged: one that is poised to redefine the world as we know it. 

Introducing Gen Zalpha

Who exactly are this generation? Well, they’re a mix of Gen Z and Gen Alpha: their age range is between 9 and 14, and notably, they’re not just digitally native: they’re digitally fluent.
