How Are Moms Using Social Media (And Why Does This Matter To Marketers)? [INFOGRAPHIC]

Did you know that a recent study showed that almost half (44 percent) of moms have gone on to make a purchase after a friend posted a recommendation or liked a product on a social media site?

We’ve been here before, of course (many times), but it bears repeating – moms and social media make a great mix, and if these socially savvy ladies are a demographic fit for your business then you should absolutely be engaging with them – frequently – within your marketing campaigns.

You need more proof? Moms love to share information about products. Your products. More than nine in ten (92 percent) pass along information about deals or finds to others, and 78 percent of moms follow brands on social media to get coupons and discounts (compared to 55 percent of other folk).

They’re mobile, too – 89 percent of moms use their smartphone to check social media on the move.

Check the infographic below for the lowdown on how moms are using social media.
