Social vs. Online for Women

Engaging women with social media is every marketer's dream, but trying to find the female market is a marketer's nightmare!

Women regularly use social media like Facebook to reach out to friends and family, however, their vehicle of choice for getting information on brands may prove surprising. iVillage and Burke Research recently collaborated on research regarding where women go for brand information, advice and insight...and the winner is online communities designed for women (like iVillage). Why? Women feel that these online communities are more trustworthy on brand information, and more understanding of women's needs.

How Competitive is Your Content?

In our mad dash to upload, post, link, twitter and blog, we sometimes take our actual content for granted. We forget that the world is reading me, my blogs, my company website.

Therein lies the rub. If your job responsibilities include posting to any type of social site, check the article "Honor Thy Content: The Five Commandments of Editorial Excellence".

Ken Gordon reminds us that there's strong competition for the eyes and ears of your prospects and clients, and engaging content wins the war.

Boomers Fly Into Golden Years

Baby boomers are coming of age. Over the next 19 years more than 11,000 will turn 65 each day of each year.

Boomers (born between 1946 and 1964) are loading their suitcases and hitting the road, planes, boats and trains. Boomers have a younger attitude and are more physically active than previous generations and do not consider themselves as "seniors."

Travel is a hot ticket with this group, especially trips that highlight a foodie adventure (vacations planned around a dining experience).

Currently there are 77 million boomers in the US. The boomer travelers are connected (99% have internet access) and are more likely to book trips using their computers. Read Radio Sales Today report on the Travel Weekly article to find out how to tap into this wanderlust group http://bit.ly/g20j3B
