The Internet: An Affluent Working Woman’s Best Friend

This high-powered female buying group is growing everyday. And research is proving the best way to reach them is online. As an individual’s income level rises, so do the responsibility and expectations of the job. So women in these positions are finding they have far less time to physically shop around for the things they need. So it makes more sense for them to spend 30 minutes of their lunch hour and get a day’s worth of shopping completed online.

The number of women earning $100,000 or more has tripled in the last 10 years

According to The Media Audit, affluent working women with family incomes of $75,000 or more are growing in number, and The Employment Policy Foundation says the number of women earning $100,000 or more has tripled in the last 10 years. An impressive 94.3 percent of these women are using the Internet during an average month. About half are now considered heavy Internet users, while use of radio, television, newspapers and direct mail has declined within this group.
