Learning from Generation Z: What Works, What Doesn’t & Everything In Between

We have the opportunity to work with many pregnancy centers across the country. Most frequently they share their desire to reach the abortion minded and have found it is a challenge to reach them first to offer life-affirming choices before a pregnant woman steps into an abortion clinic. Our heart and mission is to help centers reach women before they walk through those doors. As you know, the target demographic you want to reach doesn’t change – but their habits and how they receive information has changed drastically over the decades.

Gen Z is your target audience. This generation was born between 1996 and 2014. They have never known life without the internet or smart phones and they are used to consuming lots of information instantly and constantly. Without a doubt, in order to get in front of this demographic, you need to have a digital presence.

In this download, we take a deep dive into what it means to be a member of Gen Z. We questioned some teens and young adults who are part of Gen Z and hope their answers are enlightening to you as you plan your marketing strategies to reach them more effectively!

COVID-19’s Lasting Mark: How Will Your Center Adapt?

Let’s be honest. For most pregnancy centers we talk to, this pandemic has been a long road. Adapting how you serve people, worrying about finances and canceled events, keeping up with new technology to communicate with both staff and clients, wondering how long you will have to do all of this… it’s a lot.

While we all desire to return to normalcy, part of moving forward will be learning to adapt to a “new normal.” Women’s ultimate need is the same, but how they pursue solutions to that need has shifted. They are now very comfortable being reached, served and communicated to virtually. How will you respond?

In this guide, we talk about some key ways your pregnancy center can adapt to long-lasting changes from COVID-19 to continue reaching and serving abortion-minded women.
