How to Successfully Market to Young Women

Market to Young Women
Utilize these 6 tips to successfully market to young women.

  1. Know your demographic – Young women will be more receptive to your advertising campaign if it is targeted specifically for their demographic. One way to do this is to research what college-age women like, making your promotional materials easily relatable. Make your product/service marketable to them by demonstrating that it is an essential component of every young woman’s life, and that without it something would be missing. Also, play on the college experience and use that in your marketing strategy.
  2. Be informative – Women want to know the facts. They want to know why they should buy your product/service instead of buying someone else’s. Young women tend to read online reviews and use the internet to find out more information about your company before making a purchase. When advertising to college-age women it is important to let them know what your product will do for them. Consider providing a sample of your product, allowing the product to speak for itself.
  3. Don’t be pushy – Women want to be in control of their lives and therefore like to make their own decisions. They don’t need someone to tell them what they want. When promoting a product don’t be overtly aggressive, instead be helpful and informative. Speak about the benefits of your product and allow them to reach a decision themselves. Heavy sale tactics could scare them away before they even know what you’re selling.
  4. Make sure your customers are happy: If women are happy with your product, they will tell their friends and family about it. Young women tend to be loyal customers and if they like your company they will tell their peers. This will lead to a viral word of mouth marketing strategy, which is one of the most effective marketing strategies for this demographic.
  5. Offer coupons or deals: Women, especially young college-age women, love to save money. According to Business News Daily, nine out of ten (91 percent) of women use coupons to get a better deal (including 51 percent who print coupons from the Internet), 29 percent use competitor coupons and 11 percent use coupons directly off their cell phones. Take advantage of the fact that women love a good deal and market accordingly.

The Widespread Usage of Media Among College Women and What This Means From a College Marketing Standpoint

Media factors largely in any collegiate marketing campaign, however, in person connections still matter. Learn how the widespread usage of media among college women affects college marketing.

A recent Science Daily article indicated “freshmen women spend nearly half their day—12 hours—engaged in some form of media use, particularly texting, music, the internet and social networking.”[1] That means freshmen college women spend the majority of their waking hours consuming media, a rather staggering amount of time.
