Women are changing – Madwomen Advertising will help you keep up

Today’s women are earning, spending, and influencing spending more than ever before. In fact, women account for $7 trillion in consumer and business spending in the United States, and over the next decade, they will control two thirds of consumer wealth.

Women make or influence 85% of all purchasing decisions, and purchase over 50% of traditional male products, including automobiles, home improvement products and consumer electronics.

Why are these figures all US? Because in the UK marketers are ignoring the blindingly obvious fact that they need to get to know women better. And that means going beyond ‘it needs to be feminine’ – how many times have you seen that on a brief? Define ‘feminine’. It’s not easy.

In one survey, 91% of women said “advertisers don’t understand them”

If you understand how women’s lives are changing, you can tap into this in ways that will benefit your brand. Madwomen can help you choose the right  insights and turn them into creative ideas and executions women will respond to.
