Abstract The purpose of this research is to explore the literature for insights into marketing strategies that would successfully appeal to the perceptions and values of older consumers. “Older” consumers are the generations that include and precede the cohort known as baby boomers, with baby boomers being born between years 1946 and 1965. Traditional marketing strategies often rely on messages that seem to stereotype older consumers, emphasizing characteristics related to age, health, or social standing. Emerging marketing strategies recognize that older consumers may react negatively to the traditional message because their self-image may be quite different from the stereotypical image. Older consumers may react to the stereotypes as distortions of their identity. For many older consumers, the focus on chronological age has been replaced by an association with perceived age or subjective age that resonates with more youthful marketing messages. They may have a more positive response to marketing strategies that respect the roles of tradition and nostalgia, while connecting to a range of needs and values deemed relevant by today’s older consumers.
