Continuum Crew Selected as Agency of Record for AgeTek

We are pleased to announce that we have been selected as the marketing agency of record by Aging Technology Alliance™ (AgeTek™), a trade group of companies that develop and/or market technology-based products designed for the senior market.

AgeTek represents companies and organizations dedicated to promoting the awareness, benefits and value of products and services for our aging society. Their members’ products and services allow seniors to remain independent and age in place at home, as well as empower many seniors to enjoy a healthy, active lifestyle while securing their mobility. AgeTek is focused on bringing greater awareness to their industry, products, and to its select group of companies that are working together (and independently) to develop better-designed, less expensive and better-tested products for the senior consumer.

Continuum Crew will counsel AgeTek on thought leadership activities and member engagement activities. We will also develop and implement an advertising and media plan, with interactive media services (including the execution of email campaigns and search engine optimization), marketing collateral production, public relations and social media activities.

“As we seek to gain the attention of public policy makers, regulators, lawmakers, advocacy groups, mass media and the general public about the benefits of technology appropriately designed for seniors, we know aligning ourselves with Continuum Crew is the perfect choice,” said Peter Radsliff, Board Chairman, AgeTek. “Led by Lori Bitter, she and her team have a strong presence in this space and an outstanding reputation. They know how to most effectively reach these audiences. We look forward to what this partnership will yield as we grow our organization.”

Technically Speaking, Boomers Bring the Business

Couple dancing with iPods
This is acknowledged quite nicely by an article posted today by Jim Goldman, CNBC’s Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, in his article: Boomer Technology is Booming Business. So often the expectation is that innovation in the form of new technologies is most quickly adopted by our youngest generations. But with older consumers poised to out-spend younger shoppers (by an estimated $1 trillion this year), technology companies ignoring the Boomer consumer are losing out—but this is changing.

Goldman points out that in fact large companies including Intel, Microsoft and Apple are racing to capture market share. The Boomer market, with its disposable income and increasing eagerness to embrace easier-to-use technologies, is growing.

In our next series of research we will be looking at Boomer’s adoption of technology, and what it will mean for consumer electronics makers. Goldman does not just talk about toys, but real tools specifically geared to this market that could make life easier and healthier. With this value-added approach, success awaits for the tech companies trying to tap the lucrative Boomer market.
