Target market: motherhood

May 8, 2008

This Mothers Day, marketers and politicians alike might be reminded of the powerful demographic of moms. A University of Minnesota expert who can explain more is:
 
Mary Vavrus, University of Minnesota Communication Studies professor

Vavrus can discuss how mothers are viewed as a niche market and are precisely targeted by advertisers and marketers. Additionally, they often work as a swing voting bloc during political campaigns. Vavrus can also dissect how media representations of mothers and mothering has changed over time.
