    Hi,

    The people I'm marketing to : 97% of them are women.
    And I just realized I never thought to ask my favourite fellas : would you have some good info, insights, take away, ressources/products to share ?

    Let's start this thread, shall we?

    From my perspective, I could start with two statements :
    -Emotional content is of utmost importance I mean bigger than to general audience.
    -Time saving seems to be an universally potent "alternate currency" (so to speak à la Eben Pagan) when dealing with female humans.

    So... what are YOUR experiences in this field ?

    Hello,

    About half the people in the world are women... From a marketing perspective, I think you would be better off getting into more specific info about your target audience.

    What ages are you marketing to? What income level(s)? What are their common interests? That type of thing. Those can have very telling answers.

    this is something that really pisses of feminists - at the end of the day women are more gullible and vulnerable than men so you can grab their attention easier and sway them easier thats just the way it is

    It really depends on the age group of the women you are trying to sell to as well. For teens-get something flashy that is asthetic to the eye.

    You can attach it here, if it's small, or post a link to it, after you upload it to a share a file service like rapidshare. Or, you can post it in the members download section: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/f29-member-downloads/

    Many of the women I have known, of course, have been concerned about weight loss. Acne. Umm... coupons. Stuff like that I think.

    I have had a lot of luck offering survey program signups to women. :)
    They wanna make money doing surveys and trying products. Of course you get paid when they sign up, everyone wins.

    Hey guys, thanks for all replies ; I had just lost track of my own post !

    Wizgizmo... well, won't say anything and just press the buton twice !!!-)

    More specifics about my market...?
    Okay... (I have zero fear of competition and when you read what's my market is you understand why !)
    I sell continued professionnal education to french speech therapists (of which 97% are female and I'm one of the few males...)

    The age demographics is a nice gaussian spread between 23 up to 75.
    about 20% of them are "active" on the internet (read : do more than just use it for transmitting social security data...well that's a frenco-french thing!) so I do most of my "testing" stuff on the net and most of my selling stuff by regular direct mail.
    But things are moving quickly and I can sense that in a matter of five years allmost all of them will be reachable through Internet marketing.

    ...So you can understand I'm not quite eactly in the "magic diet pill" market ! lol
    And what about you guys ?
