MYTH #3: Women only buy “women-things.”

MYTH: Women only buy “women-things.”

TRUTH: Yes, if you consider electronics, NFL swag, tools and automobiles “women-things.”

There’s nothing “girly” about these stats:

  • The Consumer Electronics Association says women accounted for $55 billion of the $96 billion spent on electronics gear. And, that women are involved in almost 75% of all electronics purchases.
  • Par Excellence Magazine states 74% of NBA and NFL purchases are made by women.
  • According to Road & Travel Magazine, today’s women make up more than 50%  of the automotive market, spending an estimated $80 billion a year on new-car sales, a number industry analysts expect to see rise to 60% in just a few short years.

I sure hope that your brand isn’t ignoring women simply because you’re a “male” company. You could be missing out on connecting with a large part of your market.
