Nokia will aggressively pursue the teenage market with its next batch of phones, head of marketing for U.K. and Ireland John Nichols said recently. The Finnish smartphone maker will join forces with celebrities and increase its social media presence in an effort to catch the attention of a younger, tech savvy crowd, MarketingWeek explained following an interview with the executive. “This isn’t a standing start, we already have a huge youth market but for teenagers we need to ensure that we create the content and partnerships that matter,” Nichols said. “As a teenager, the brands I loved had an opinion and told me whether to engage with them or not. The trick is to remember not to just wade in; otherwise our personality could look like the drunken uncle dancing at the wedding.” Nokia will further discuss its strategy during its October 26th Nokia World press conference, when it is also expected to unveil its first Windows Phone-powered devices.
