It’s no secret women control a majority of the buying power in homes across the United States each year. According to a recent study by FONA International, 85% of all consumer purchases in the U.S. are made by women. Yet 91% of women who participated in the study concluded that today’s advertisers just don’t understand them.
CelebExperts, a top-tier corporate consulting and celebrity acquisition agency, has analyzed a list of celebrity marketing campaigns executed in July. In the past, a number of major marketing campaigns have continued to perpetuate negative stereotypes for women such as the recent controversy involving teenage models in adult ad campaigns in the fashion industry. This month, marketing managers are beginning to understand the upsides of campaigns employing the help of successful, proven female celebrities to connect with female consumers.
CelebExperts CEO Evan Morgenstein said, “In light of the controversy swirling around the modeling and fashion apparel industry utilizing young teenage models in adult campaigns, the following 5 companies have decided that these powerful female celebrities with huge fan bases and social media audiences can deliver a truly authentic message and ultimately boost sales for brands in ways very few celebrities can.”
