Women choose strong over skinny.

Women choose strong over skinny.

My college-aged nieces regularly post goofy selfies. Some might say unflattering. Eyes crossed, hair wild, tongues lolling. Anything goes. Their friends respond in kind. #photoshopmenot.

We celebrated friend’s birthday recently with a rock climbing trip. It was his 16-year-old daughter’s first experience and the route was fairly technical. My 16-year-old son has been climbing for some time and offered to lead the way, but she wouldn’t have it. “I can figure this out.” And she did, with gleeful bravado and fresh bruises.

My 14-year-old daughter Sofia and her friends broke from studying recently to see who could hold a plank the longest. “You’re so skinny,” one of her friends said to her. That was once the ultimate compliment for a girl, right next to thin and petite.

“I don’t want to be skinny,” Sofia barked. “I want to be strong.”

When Cass Hines, an Australian fitness model shared pics with her 88,000 followers after gaining 18 pounds of muscle, she won twice as many likes as she got from her previous skinny posts.

"Seeing these pics side by side, I can now honestly say that being ‘skinny’ is not what I want anymore," Hines wrote in the caption. "It blows my mind to think what I can do in terms of training and the strength I have gained vs. back then."

Is the female ideal shifting from size to strength? Several brands seem to think so—whether championing the cause or following it. Consider the following related events, from traditional media to the big screen.

Women’s Health Magazine cuts the fat. In response to a reader survey, Women's Health magazine resolved to stop using the words "shrink" and "diet," as well as the phrases "Bikini Body” and “Drop Two Sizes” on any future covers at the beginning of 2016.

Wonder Woman crushes stereotypes. After telling the stories of Batman, Superman, Spider-Man, Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Dr. Strange, Green Hornet, and a host of other male superheroes, Hollywood this year released the first female-centered comic book movie.  It’s also the first-ever live-action film to be directed by a woman with budget of more than $100 million.

Samantha Bee goes Full Frontal. After being the longest-serving regular correspondent on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Bee in 2015 became the first woman to host a late-night satire show. 

Brands go skin deeper. Dove began changing the conversation from outer beauty to inner beauty more than a decade ago. Today’s Barbie is pursuing a STEM career and Always is cheering her on from the sidelines, encouraging girls to step up and take the lead. For more brands empowering women in 2017, check out this blog.

Have you changed the way your brand communicates with female consumers? What’s working and why?

Moms use social media to talk health coverage.

Moms are to Facebook what tweens are to Instagram. It’s where she finds advice, attention and, most importantly, an audience. Torn between two brands? Post it. Kid matriculated to middle school? Share it. Fear of losing coverage for your child’s pre-existing medical condition? Promote it.

According to Nielsen research, Generation X (ages 40-52 in 2017) spends the most time on social media: almost seven hours a week versus Millennials, who come in second, with just over six hours a week. Facebook is mom’s channel of choice, with 81 percent using the platform versus 66 percent of dads. Parents, especially moms, interact with their networks frequently. About 94 percent post or comment Facebook regularly.

What’s she posting? Healthcare is always a hot topic with mom on social. She asks about the shelf life of sunscreen, chronicles her 2 a.m. dash to the ER with her wheezing toddler, and invites debate over the best treatments for poison ivy and bug bites. Changes in health—whether positive or negative—are particularly post worthy.

Like the risk of losing healthcare coverage. The fate of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) has moms taking to their worries to social media with hashtags like #IAmAPreexistingCondition and #Csection to vent frustration over losing coverage or higher premiums because they have given birth. Under the American Health Care Act (AHCA)—legislation proposed to replace the ACA—C-sections would be categorized as a pre-existing condition, along with diabetes and congenital heart problems.

Moms are also worried about losing coverage for their families. Some share photos of their children who could die without insurance. Others share their family’s health struggles and openly fret about the impact of policy change.

The ACA/ACHA conversation will continue for months if not years while legislation is considered in Congress. Meanwhile, healthcare will be always be a social media fave. So, what’s a health care provider to do? Participate in the conversation or sit on the sidelines? You may opt to toggle between the two, just don’t ignore mom altogether. She is the undisputed healthcare decision maker in the family. You need her on your side and that means acknowledging her social media activity.

Participate in the conversation.

The topic du jour is the ACA. If you’re a health care provider, chances are your physicians and nurses are already entertaining questions from patients about the ACA. Will I be covered? Will I have to pay more? Your role is to be informative without being political. It may be a tough line to walk, but if you’re not careful you’ll alienate some patients.

Develop a social media plan to keep your team on track. Stick to the hard facts and avoid rumor and innuendo. Your job is to interpret the current policy, not analyze what the impact of proposed legislation. Provide helpful tips and insights into how to use insurance benefits to their full advantage. If and when new legislation is adopted, articulate what if any impact they may experience. Be a guide, a trusted resource that mom can lean on.

Sit on the sidelines.

Just because you can’t contribute to the politics of the day doesn’t mean you should ignore it altogether. Your social media team should monitor the healthcare conversation regularly, providing insights into how consumers are reacting. Think of it as a dynamic, diverse focus group. When people complain of stress, consider content to help families cope in positive ways (yoga, meditation, long walks, etc.). If you work directly with patients, this knowledge will help your team communicate more authentically with them.

In short, mom is freaking out about healthcare coverage right now. She’s commiserating with millions of her compatriots very publicly via her favorite social media channel, Facebook.  If you want to build trust and loyalty with mom, pay attention to what’s keeping her up at night and posting at all hours of the day.

6 ways brands are empowering women in 2017.

In the first quarter of 2017, brands came together on a very similar mission, to empower women. According to CEB Iconoculture research, 63 percent of women say obstacles continue to make it harder for women than men today, while only 41 percent of men think women still face obstacles.

To highlight these disparities, here are six ways brands are changing the conversation and empowering women in 2017.

1. Brawny: #StrengthHasNoGender.

Brawny: #StrengthHasNoGender.

This year, the 43-year-old paper towel brand got a makeover. As part of its Women’s History Month campaign, the brand replaced its trademark lumberjack with a defiant, flannel wearing woman. In an Adweek interview, the agency’s VP of marketing explained, “This year we wanted women to see themselves as strong and resilient, and one way to do that was to show them on the packaging.” Household goods already have a brand advantage with women in the trust department. Who knows where this may take Brawny.

2. Microsoft: Make What’s Next.

The tech brand has recently made it their mission to highlight the growing gap in female STEM (for science, technology, engineering and math) researchers. With their spot “Make What’s Next,” Microsoft encourages young girls to follow their dreams and stay in STEM.

3. McCann: A fearless girl.

In honor of International Women’s Day, McCann New York erected a statue of a girl facing off the infamous Wall Street Charging Bull. The statue, which has since been removed from site after the permit expired, was to emphasize the power of women in leadership. The girl stood fearlessly in the face of the bull for over a month, serving as a powerful symbol of female strength.

4. Loganberry Books: Gender gap in fiction.

To demonstrate the gender gap in fiction, this Ohio bookstore turned all male authored books around in their bookstore so only the works of women were in view. The store operated under this remodel for about a week, as the storeowner wanted to celebrate generations of female authors and inspire the next.    

5. Jack Daniels: His and Hers.

No explanation necessary here.

  1. Ann Taylor: This is Ann.

To celebrate 60 years of business and in honor of Women’s History Month, Ann Taylor debuted their “This is Ann,” video. The minute-long spot highlights the good, the bad and the ugly struggles women have faced throughout the years while thanking the women that have come before them and paved the way.

Weekly Recap - March 17, 2017

Do you trust brands? An eMarketer study found that most women are skeptical. In fact, 48 percent have a hard time trusting financial service brands, 37 percent distrust healthcare brands and 24 percent distrust nonprofits. Even with social activism on the rise, Millennials are dubious about cause marketing to be skeptical. Still they yearn to be philanthropic. Where’s the give? Seeing isn’t necessarily believing. Digiday suggests brands’ viewability isn’t the be-all end-all. Let’s break it down.

Focus on viewability, but don’t make it the goal. It seems like a total no-brainer: No one wants to pay for ads that can’t be seen. But viewability is just one factor in an effective campaign.

Rethink Breast Cancer makes it easy to show you care.

Rethink Breast Cancer makes it easy to show you care

When my brother’s wife was diagnosed with breast cancer, we bought her a tablet to pass the time during her recovery. She loves to read, so it seemed a good choice. A year later, when my husband’s sister was diagnosed, we gave her a pressed metal necklace.

Why? I have no idea. My mother-in-law reacted in typically blunt fashion. “Why are you giving her presents? It’s cancer, not a birthday party.”

We just wanted to do something to let her know we were thinking of her. That we love her. And to somehow bridge the 4,200 miles that separated us from her while she battled cancer without us. So many things come to mind now that she’s four years cancer-free. But when you’re spinning with worry, thoughtful gift ideas rarely come in focus.

Rethink Breast Cancer gets it. The young women’s breast cancer movement has created thoughtful Give-A-Care products that help friends diagnosed with breast cancer get through the tough time ahead. More than a gesture, the collection includes meaningful gifts that acknowledge what’s she’s tackling, and helps support her along the way.

You can gift goodies a-la-carte or send carefully curated packages that come in small, medium and large. Items range from the practical—a planner, hand sanitizer, water bottle, tissue and tote—to the comfy—plush hoodies and a 100 percent cashmere toque that promises both warmth and style. There’s even a children’s book for moms to help with difficult conversations and can’t-we-ever-have-a-normal-conversation candy hearts inscribed with texts like “u r my rock.” All gifts come with a complementary care guidelines catered to young women who have a breast cancer diagnosis.

What’s more, Give-a-Care products keep on giving. All proceeds from sales fund Rethink Breast Cancer. The nonprofit is dedicated to raise awareness about breast cancer in those under the age of 40.

Talk about a feel-good fest. The giver feels like she’s helping. The recipient feels understood. And the nonprofit gets more funding to fuel great ideas to help more patients.

This kind of brand authenticity is what consumers crave across industries. There’s nothing like a confident decision to make people loyal advocates. The trick is to know your audience. Rethink Breast Cancer knows its target audience down to the cellular level. 

Speaking of brand authenticity, download our free whitepaper “3 Rules to Creating an Authentic Brand.” And discover which brands are getting real and how to market authenticity across genders, generations and ethnic groups.

Unconditional acceptance inspires new women’s health campaign.

We women come in all ages, shapes and sizes. With differing personalities, talents, preferences and habits (good, bad or indifferent). Yet, even though we may not realize it, we all have something in common: our need for acceptance.  

This reality became the basis for a women’s health campaign we created for our client, Franciscan Alliance, a 14-hospital Catholic health system in Northern Indiana. In a charming, lightly humorous manner, the “Perfectly Human” campaign lets women know that they are beautiful just as God made them, whether they jiggle a little when they jog or can’t hold a tree pose. And that Franciscan Alliance is the healthcare partner they can count on throughout their life’s journey with: “Inspiring health for every woman.”

Personally, I am in awe and admiration of their strong, faith-based stance as it’s not something you see in every Catholic hospital’s messaging. As Strategic Healthcare Marketing noted in a recent article about the campaign: “This strives to take away some of the guilt and pressure many people feel over not meeting standards.”

 

In addition to winning a Silver Service Industry Association Award, the two-month campaign resulted in a 504 percent increase in website visits to women’s health landing pages with a 477 percent increase in new users. Now that’s inspiring! Let us know how this healthcare marketing campaign made you feel as a woman.

Millennial women defy marketing labels.

Millennial women defy marketing labels.

Marketers love to label consumers. Early adopter. Fast follower. Foodie. Loyalist. Bargain-hunter. Boomer. Gen We. Labels help us make sense of consumer behavior, providing insights that help inform marketing and advertising strategy.

For example, Generation Xers are notoriously skeptical and unfailingly loyal. So while it takes brands a great deal to win their favor, it takes little to retain it. That’s why Netflix is so popular with this cohort.  The on-demand video-streaming company invested in high-quality, original content like Orange is the New Black and House of Cards, then backfilled its library with nostalgic titles like Arrested Development to lure Xers. Smart move, considering Xers value pay-TV more highly than other generations. (High acquisition cost + modest maintenance cost = loyal Gen Xer.)

So, what’s a marketer to do with an entire generation that defies labels? And not just any generation, the nation’s largest living generation.

Millennials prefer to be label-free. In fact, they don’t particularly like to be called Millennials.

According to the latest Pew research, Millennials don’t identify with the term “Millennial.” Only 40 percent of adults 18-34 consider themselves Millennials and another 33 percent (mostly on the older end of the Millennial spectrum) identify with Generation X.

 

Only 40 percent of adults 18-34 consider themselves Millennials

 

Female Millennials are particularly elusive. But their annual combined purchasing power—$840 billion—makes them worth the effort (CEB Iconoculture research).

I am unpredictable. I am accepting. I am Millennial woman.

Many marketers are frustrated by the sense that Millennial women are unpredictable because they aren’t thinking like—or doing what—previous generations of women did, according to CEB Iconoculture. They don’t relate to the “I can do it all” Enjoli woman of the Boomer age.  And they don’t act much like the “never let them see you sweat” Gen Xer woman either. This is partly because they grew up at a time when pay parity and gender equality were the norm. So unlike their moms and grandmothers, they’re unencumbered with having to prove their worth and fight for a seat at the table.

This empowerment has left Millennial women largely undefinable, blissfully rowing in different directions. Although most Millennial women say they’re on track to meet career goals, 71 percent have “ambitions other than leadership,” according to a Zeno Group survey. Most (79 percent) are concerned about work-life balance and 49 percent question whether climbing the corporate ladder is worth the personal sacrifice.

 

Millennial women have an annual combined purchasing power of $840 billion

 

This is where we (finally) find common ground: purpose and individuality differentiate Millennial women, says CEB Iconoculture. They prize these values significantly more than older generations of women. What this means is that while Millennial women have differing motivations and aspirations, they respect opposing opinions and alternative pursuits.

Baby-formula behemoth Similac captures these values comically in its spot “The Mother ‘Hood.”  West Side Story meets Romper Room in this spoof on the Mommy Wars Millennial women say they don’t want to participate in. By depicting parents who adhere to a range of parenting philosophies ultimately uniting over a common goal, Similac reminds consumers that no matter what their choices, parents are more alike than they are different. 

4 factors to consider when marketing to Millennial women.

In addition to their differentiating values, Millennial women share four key purchasing motivators, according to CEB Iconoculture.  They are: (1) Does it save me time? (2) Does it save me money? (3) Does it serve a purpose? (4) Is it a good, quality product?

Brands can illustrate these attributes by flaunting flexibility, practicality, choice and equality.

Make it flexible: T.J. Maxx recently launched a campaign with a diverse range of consumers experiencing different realities (parents of teenagers, female colleagues, young kids, a mature woman living with a younger man). It’s all about right-sizing for the individual, or in ad speak “Maxx-imizing.” The spot speaks directly to Millennial women’s ability to adapt to change. 

Make it practical: Warby Parker’s are more than stylish, the craftsman construction appeals to Millennials’ penchant for good quality. (“From premium Japanese titanium to custom
single-sheet cellulose acetate sourced from a family-run Italian factory, we use the best materials for our frames.”) What’s more, the value proposition “buy a pair, give a pair” serves a higher purpose that connects with Millennial women on a higher level. Finally, the brand helps consumers save precious time with at-home and virtual try-on features.

Give her choices: Ram Trucks spot “Courage is Already Inside” features women passionately engaged in activities both traditionally feminized (ballet, childcare) and anything but (bow hunting, military service). It celebrates the women for the intensity of their efforts and the breadth of their personal possibilities, rather than promoting a traditional ideal.  

Make all things equal: For Millennial women, equality is the expectation. And since inclusion is part of their reality, they want to see equality (and diversity) reflected in the media they consume. As a group, they’re also extremely aware and critical of advertising that doesn’t do a good job of showcasing a broad range of viewpoints and experiences. Nike’s spot “Better for It: Inner Thoughts” features an ethnically diverse group of women, exercising at varying levels of fitness. The spot attempts to capture various motivations that find women doing marathons, yoga, spinning and more.
