Millennial Moms: The Untapped Market. Millennial Moms are are the influencers of modern parenting,  the decision makers and more powerful.

An “Ify” Life

According to recent market research, marketing and advertising agencies occur many challenges with discovering the trends of Millennial Moms consumers. With this in mind, we live in a modern data-rich age. Businesses and Agencies collect data and pay for consumer’s information. After that, the reports are thoroughly analyzed to obtain insight into one of the most lucrative and influential consumer groups, Millennial Moms.

Millennial Moms

In fact, there is a plethora of information regarding Millennial Moms that we can determine from these studies. Specifically, the data research collected via “The State of Modern Motherhood.” The study was performed by the BabyCenter.com and co-sponsored by IAB in 2015, reflect on far advanced we stand today. Given these facts, if you are a business owner or targeting mothers of the new age, consider the reports top 5 reasons on why you should pay close attention to the Millennial Mom Market.

Millennial Moms

First, recognize the Millennial Mom’s newfound perspective. When millennial women become mothers, their priorities shift and because of easy access to technology they have ample (some would argue too much) information at their fingertips. In fact, their perspectives have changed over time. Moms are more apt to be more interested in issues related to: -Family -Relationships -Health -Finance What does this mean for your business? If your business fits any of these departments, you have a primary audience when targeting Millennial Moms. Second, the Millennial Mom is digitally savvy. The first study that I recognized surveyed that 41% of Millennial Moms referenced or reverted to popular social media platforms and trending blogs which focused on motherhood. Specifically, Millennial Moms like to remain informed and entertained daily, weekly or more often. Data also revealed that 32% use social media for parenting advice. What does this mean for your business? Connecting with established influencers can increase your visibility. Pitch your product or service to an influencer, have them to share and review your product or services. Utilizing influencer marketing is a lot less expensive than traditional advertising. Third, the Millennial Mom has to be mobile. I noticed when reviewing the report the drop in laptop and PC purchases (down 9% from 2013-2014), and the rise of smartphones and tablets (rising 9% and 10% respectively, about the same percentage as the laptop/pc category fell). These numbers demonstrate that Millennial Moms are on the move. I can agree with this statement. Laptops and PC’s can be more restrictive when you’re a busy mother; not to mention 57% of Millennial Moms indicated that they use their Laptop or PC less now that they have kids. Who would have predicted that the release of the smartphone would change the world so much? What does this mean for your business? Pay attention to mobile advertising. Most importantly make sure that the sites you utilize or create are mobile responsive and adaptive to all devices. Fourth, the Millennial Mom is a savvy shopper. 80% of Millennial Moms handle their smartphone while shopping. You see it all the time, purse in one hand and their phone in the other hand. Forget about coupon clipping. With the click of an app and digital price checkers, coupons generate automatically.   Furthermore, retailers price-match the retrieved prices. In all honesty,  your phone saves you beaucoup money.   What does this mean for your business? As a business owner, create an online presence or develop an app that provides consumers with exclusive deals. Get creative and generate business at the same time. Fifth, reach your target much more accessible. As noted above, Millennial Moms stay plugged in socially. Especially, with their engagement on social media platforms such as Foursquare and Facebook. Taking a shopping experience selfie is a must and a guilty pleasure. What does this mean for your business? Place digital targeted ads. Create the opportunity for specific agencies to measure your growth through advertising and retrieve your target audience and market. In conclusion, take full advantage of the Millennial Mom Market. To point out, mothers are the number one consumer. Expand and build your business through the Millennial Mom marketplace. Soon the untapped market will be tapped into and you will be kicking yourself on the missed opportunity to provide your services to the number one market.

LIVE OUT YOUR DREAMS!
Big or small, our dreams are exciting.ur dreams!

A Mother’s Touch-Megan Riedling

I believe that when you have a dream, you embark upon the desired journey and live out your dreams. As a child, I enjoyed capturing moments through the lens of my camera. I would place my dolls and small toys as if they were on a photoshoot set. Years later, my friends took the place of my dolls; posing in front of the DIY photography backdrop, made with sheets, curtains, clothespins, and blinds. Eventually, I decided to invest my childhood dream. Not to mention, I realized the value of pure happiness and how it plays a role in one’s life. After all, there is a difference between standard living and quality living. Standard Living vs Quality Living Besides, the love of my life believed in me, and I began to believe in myself. Before, I put self-compassion and joy for others first, not only to feel happy for other people but to receive the feeling of happiness in return. His support and encouragement persuaded me to follow my dream. The dream to become a photographer, all while gaining joy and peace. Most importantly, positioning myself to enjoy the joys of photography has put the excitement back into my life. Photography is a form of art and photographers are the artists.  

LIVE OUT YOUR DREAMS!

Although some may disagree, there is no wrong or right when it comes to creating art. What my eye captures is my creative work. On the other hand, there are many skilled photography professionals, whom I admire and they take their craft to the next level. They dedicate their time and create careers utilizing their talents. However, for me capturing moments brings balance to my life and personal therapy. All in all, we all have dreams and talents. In most cases, if I were to place an object for two different photographers to capture the outcome of the photo would be different. To conclude, never compromise your desires based on what others believe or how they make you feel. If you discover happiness or peace in an enjoyable sport, art or hobby, follow through with it.   Otherwise, you will feel a small void in your life. I now realize that I can capture memories, make people happy and be happy. Live Healthy Read More Millennial Mom Stories

As a mother of two amazing girls, we live to dance and learn unique elements of life. As a proud graduate of Spalding University, I value my Master’s Degree in Science of Occupational Therapy. Currently, I’m an Occupational therapist for Paragon Rehabilitation and hold the position as Program Director (Rehab Manager). In 2014, I achieved my certification as an Aquatic Therapist.

Since high school, I’ve had a passion for dance which motivated me to pursue liturgical dancing. Inspired by my faith, I organized the Worship Warriors Liturgical Dance, a dance ministry that reaches out to youth and adults in my community. I use dance as an entertaining tool to connect all to Christ. My daughters display the same passion by participating in liturgical dance and competitive cheer. We have a special love to serve the homeless in our community and contributing to others in need.

I’m excited for what God has planned for us, and I’m looking forward to sharing healthcare advice and my new hobby, photography, to all.

“I love being around family, friends and I love photography. I feel like it is super important to spend every day like it is your last.”

Thanksgiving Festivities are right around the corner.  Several enjoy an intimate dinner with close friends and family, while others enjoy a calm moment at home or kick back like any other day.

These three quality time activities will bring up some old memories for you, and fun for your family to enjoy. Exposing your children to what may be a new and creative activity for them, sparks curiosity. When the questions begin, take the time to reminisce about your wonder years; laugh and compare stories. Kids believe that you have always been a mom; back-in-the-day conversation will expose your children to the human being you are. Believe it or not, while having this discussion, you are developing an even more significant, respectable connection. Paper Bag Turkey Puppets (Thanksgiving Craft) What happened to paper bag puppets?
