Generation Y Preferences in Online Content Consumption: Content Marketing Implications for the Arts


This paper focuses on analysing the specific attributes and applications of content marketing in social media. Through an engaging and targeted content strategy using the “personas”, this kind of marketing creates an engaged and motivated audience both in the commercial and non-commercial environment. The social networks are an appropriate environment and a tool for distributing and promoting content, including arts. The aim of our research was to use an online questionnaire to describe the behaviour of Generation Y (25-40 years) when using online content and identify their preferences. We also characterize the current state and future direction of content marketing in the Slovak conditions and the possibility of its use in the realm of arts.
