“We’ll tap the insights from our new study of three generations of women to show brand marketers how to build stronger, longer lasting connections with women,” said Kathy Oneto, Vice President, Brand Strategy, Anthem Worldwide. Oneto will be accompanied by Jim Lucas, Anthem’s EVP, Global Director, Insights and Strategy in their presentation of Anthem Worldwide’s new research at the 9th annual M2W® – The Marketing to Women Conference, April 16 & 17, 2013, Chicago Cultural Center.

“The study showed that 82% of women agree that “there will be negative consequences if I don’t take care of my health”, and 74% of them are motivated to be healthy,” according to Oneto. “For these reasons, amongst others, we wanted to better understand what women really want from Health & Wellness across three generations of women, Millennials, Generation X, and Boomers, and how brands can help them realize the benefits, from functional to emotional.

“What we found is that women are open to and are in fact seeking brands to motivate them to be healthy and well so they can reach their goals at any life stage’” Oneto added. We’ll show how brands can partner with women to lead stronger, healthier lives and build market share and long term brand loyalty at the same time.”

It is the first book to be written in Spain, in Spanish, on the topic of marketing to women.

Marti and Gemma’s session will open eyes to the cultural differences of marketing to women in Spain," said Nan McCann, M2W® producer. “Gemma is such a force in the global marketing to women community and always a pioneer in Spain.

Advertising & media industry critic, co-host of NPR’s “On the Media”, Bob Garfield, and co-author with Doug Levy, Founder and CEO, MEplusYOU, of Can’t Buy Me Like, will draw on their newly released book to show brand marketers how authentic customer connections drive superior results in their day one session at the 9th annual M2W® – The Marketing to Women Conference, April 15 – 17, 2013, Chicago Cultural Center.

Doug Levy and Bob Garfield, co-authors of "Can't Buy Me Like" Garfield explained, “Brands face an apparent choice: slash inefficient advertising, or put blind faith in social media. As the Beatles wrote a half century ago, money can’t buy you love. But in today’s desensitized world, money can’t even buy you like. We’ve entered the “Relationship Era,” where long-term success means creating authentic relationships. This doesn’t mean focusing on social media and blizzards of micro-targeted ads. These tactics, which disguise outdated thinking, often don’t work long term.”

“Where do “authentic customer relationships” come from? Honesty. Values. Purpose. Women in particular are critical,” Garfield claimed. “Because women influence 85% of purchasing decisions, they are key components in tapping the market’s full potential. High-quality products and services are required, but no longer enough. The world is becoming more transparent. You can’t persuade or flatter customers into loyalty, and they are more than data on a spreadsheet.”

i-on-WomenTM Team to Lead Interactive Workshop on How to Better Connect with Women At The 9th Annual M2W® – The Marketing to Women Conference

Insights in Marketing, LLC (IIM), a full-service marketing research consultancy based in the Chicago area, is sponsoring the ninth annual M2W® Conference in Chicago, April 15 – 17, 2013 at the Chicago Cultural Center. The M2W® Conference is the world’s premiere conference on marketing to women. IIM’s experts from the i-on-WomenTM team will share their female-centric insights with conference attendees by hosting an interactive workshop.

During IIM’s interactive workshop entitled, “I Am More Than My Age & Life Stage: Using Psychological Profiling Better to Understand Her,i-on-Women™ experts will go beyond demographics and stereotypes and delve deeply into the psychological and behavioral dimensions of women to determine why and how they make decisions. Participants will leave the workshop with a clear understanding of how to identify, prioritize and apply meaningful female insights, while avoiding segmentation and targeting pitfalls.
