Detailed digital advertising a good bet to reach mom demographic
As the family’s chief purchasing officer, mothers are VIPs to marketers. And to reach moms, marketers are wise to invest in digital advertising.
When it comes to those advertisements, a survey of moms by About.com could lead to the conclusion that the type of ads that engage mothers are those best experienced online. For example, 51% of moms said “ads that provide detailed information about how I can use a product” grab their attention. After all, it is difficult to offer much detail in a 60-second TV spot.
Some 39% of About.com’s respondents pointed to “visually appealing ads,” while another 21% were attentive to interactive ads like polls, quizzes and games.
The actions moms took after viewing online ads is another argument in favor of buying digital placements. Some 53% visited the product website, followed by 51% who printed ads or coupons. Forty-eight percent of moms—notorious for their thorough product investigations on the internet—did more research online, and 44% clicked on the ad. Nearly four in 10 moms purchased the product being advertised.
