30th Edition of
The Millennials Corner:

The Perfect Equation to Reach you Target Audience
By Emma Wolff 

What is a target market and why is it important to determine it when planning a marketing campaign?

Well here's a good example...if you are trying to determine a budget to advertise a skateboard, you probably don't want to reach out to 80-year-olds in a nursing home. They are not going to want that product. Choosing advertising that would speak to this audience – or demographic - would be a waste of your money.

Peoria Ranks as One of the Healthiest Cities in U.S.

Peoria makes the list (No. 36) as one of the healthiest cities in the U.S., according to a recent WalletHub study. The study explained that location matters when it comes to health. Some places promote wellness by expanding access to nutritious food and recreational facilities. Others strive to keep treatment costs affordable for everyone or protect green space that encourages an active
and healthy lifestyle.

To determine which areas prioritize residents’ well-being, WalletHub’s data team compared 150 of the most populated U.S. cities across 34 key indicators of good health. The data set ranges from “cost of doctor visit” to “fruit and vegetable consumption” to “fitness clubs per capita.” For more information on how Peoria
ranked among those factors, visit
