According to Pamela N. Danziger over at Forbes the reason that P&G sales are down is because they don’t kno3 how to market to Millennials.  She goes on to quote the CEO of P&G who says “consumers used to trust big brands; many millennials now distrust big brands and seek out purpose led brands”  Really?

imagesUnless you have been on a remote island it was hard to miss the news that P&G intends to shed more than half of its brands.  According to P&G “some of our big brands are in industries that are not very attractive: they’re not growing or low margin or commodities. If it’s not a core brand – I don’t care whether it’s a $2 billion brand, it will be divested.”  So much for improving marketing with an emphasis on digital.
