What Does Social Networking Have To Do With Women? Everything

From the beginning, the advertising industry was challenged with communicating relatively few brand choices, to mass audiences via controlled, even imposing advertising vehicles. Over the last 50-60 years, although brands were added, audiences became more segmented along with more media choices, it was essentially just more of the same.

Today, the environment is not only changing, it is placing the consumer more in control. Advertisers must deal with seemingly infinite product choices, specific target audiences and consumer-driven media. Today… it is word-of-mouth via a traveling power not yet known or understood by agencies and their clients – social networking.

Below is a great video produced by Scholz and Friends, a German marketing agency that creatively illustrates how Social Media has completely transformed how all marketers MUST think, today and in the future.

And how does that affect you?

If women are are your market, (and they most likely are) you not only need to know HOW to communicate with them, you need to know WHERE they are.
