eMarketer: What is Parents doing differently to reach today’s young mothers?

Jeff Wellington: Parents is celebrating its 90th anniversary this October, so we’ve obviously needed to put the work in to understand each current generation over time. We’ve spent a lot of time on research and insights to understand the millennial market. This generation is all digital, all the time, so we reach them through multiple platforms and channels. We have our digital applications,, and, our custom solution division with custom publications and content, and our experiential division. When it comes to social media, we have the largest social footprint of any other parenting title.
