Marketing to women online has recently become a hot topic due to a rapidly growing number of women actively engaged in blogging, social networking, connecting with other women, sharing their stories, researching, and making purchases online. Women make over 80% of household buying decisions, posing a huge opportunity for affiliate marketers looking to target this powerful group. However, some affiliates steer clear of marketing to women due to lower conversion rates than what they’ve experienced with more spontaneous consumers (which poses a huge opportunity for those not yet involved with this niche). You cannot simply ask, “Why Market to Women?” You’ve got to ask, “How can I market to women? How can I speak her language?”
A plethora of recent studies reveal that women need to trust in the ability of a product to meet her needs (and the needs of her family) and will quickly leave a landing page that does not appear trustworthy, female-friendly, or speak her language. Understanding the nature of this group is key in creating a highly-targeted, profitable marketing campaign!
