How to Market to Women Online

Of women surveyed, 90 percent of them believed marketing companies simply did not understand them. Because women make the vast majority of purchase decisions, they are one of the best audiences to reach out to. Don’t let your company fall into the 90 percent, be a company that understands women so everyone benefits.

First, you need to know how women spend their time online. Here are the top six interests that women check out on the internet:

1. Apparel
2. Health
3. Family parenting
4. Food
5. Beauty/Fashion
6. Kids

By understanding what women are interested in, you can better appeal to them and attract attention to your product or service. Even if your company doesn’t directly deal with one of these categories, there are indirect ways to reach out to women by way of these channels.

Appealing to Women

Now that you know women’s interests, you can market to them. Say that you own a car company and you want more women to take notice to it online. You can offer free spa treatments with a purchase of a car or $100 gift cards to grocery or clothing stores. Or, alternatively, you can emphasize the quality of your cars in a blog especially dedicated to keeping children safe. Find a way to incorporate women’s online interests in your outreach.
