Is Your Inter. Advertising Spending Hitting The $2 Trillion Per Year Mom

Advertising Are you targeting some of your marketing to the "mom blog" crowd? You should be. According to Stephanie Thompson of Advertising Age, "The creation of web blogs that cater specifically to moms has opened up a new avenue for advertisers to reach the demographic, which spends more than $2 trillion per year. There are more than 1,600 mother/family blogs, according to blog aggregator BlogHer." Thompson says, "It’s a boom time for blogs and similar websites catering to the shopping, networking and shoulder-crying needs of the big-spending modern mom." That spells great news for you if you are a business or individual that sells products or services to the blogging mommy crowd. As luck would have it for you, new moms are always eager to learn new shopping tips and tricks and product reviews for baby. "The blog world is [ripe] to be targeted", says Liz Gumbinner co-founder of Cool Mom Picks. So much so that she writes a blog that reviews baby items. Gumbinner claims her blog receives 1,200 unique visitors each day. So in order to reach the mommy crowd, what must you do. There are a variety of outlets to get your product out there, but some people are .ing up with more creative ways of doing it. Mommy Track’d founder and CEO Amy Keroes said, ""Our ad offerings are more customized, and more interactive." She continues, "we had a recent promotion with Netflix that tied a giveaway of a year’s subscription to the service to an article on our site about "Sherrybaby" director Laurie Collyer just as the film was being released on DVD." According to Thompson, "Lolita Carrico, founder of the blog Modern Mom, is beginning to offer big numbers. She launched the site, which is aimed at helping moms balance their busy lives, two years ago. Today, she gets 500,000 unique visitors a month, and has more than 100,000 subscribers to her newsletter. In addition [she] plans to develop other Modern Mom media offline, including testing a concept of Modern Mom moms’-night-out clubs, Ms. Carrico has forged a relationship with nail-polish manufacturer Essie to offer a Modern Mom color (that camouflages chips far more easily than today’s hip darker colors)." So what will your advertising revenue geared towards mom be reaching exactly? Lets go inside the numbers. According to Internet statistics, there are more than 32 million female Internet users with children under the age of 18. As for "blogHer", there are currently more than 1,662 blogs geared toward new moms, mothers or families in general. Blogads is reporting that the average annual in.e of the "mommy-reader" is about $70,000. They are also showing the average age of the "mommy-reader" is 29 and that they read about 5 blogs per day. If you provide a product or service that is geared toward the "mommy" crowd, then you need to get in front of the "mommy" reading blog crowd. With a little creative genius, and ingenuity, your product or service can be in front of thousands of eyes, ready to buy. By: Bruce A. Tucker About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
