Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0471369209, Hardcover)An enlightening blueprint of the secrets of reaching female consumers from the expert
Just Ask a Woman is a powerful book about how to tap into female consumers' needs. Mary Quinlan, the founder of the premiere consultancy dedicated to marketing to women, has personally interviewed 3,000 women in the course of her research for Just Ask a Woman. Women are the decision-makers in an estimated eighty-five percent of household buying decisions, and yet far too often, products marketed specifically to them fail to connect with their needs. Here, Quinlan explores topics such as how women judge brands and advertising, how they make decisions, the effects of stress on their consumer behavior, and their increasing demands for service and communication. Quinlan rejects the traditional focus group approach in favor of highly energized and intimate talk sessions where women reveal their deeper feelings about products and services. In Just Ask a Woman marketers, brand managers, and advertisers will find a revelatory resource filled with ideas and action steps for building your brand with women-from a woman who has walked in a marketer's shoes.

"In Just Ask a Woman, top marketing consultant Mary Lou Quinlan shows marketers and business leaders how to tap into America's most powerful consumers: women. Although they comprise just over half of the U.S. population, women buy or influence the purchase of eighty-five percent of all products and services sold nationwide. Yet, far too often, products marketed specifically to women fail to address their needs or connect with them on an emotional and motivational level. Just Ask a Woman will tell you why." "In Just Ask a Woman, marketers, brand managers, and advertisers - and anyone selling to women - will find actionable answers to difficult questions and real-world strategies that work - from a woman who has walked in a marketer's shoes." "Throughout this book, you'll read the stories of women consumers in their own words. Then Quinlan translates those opinions and concerns into ideas marketers can use. You'll also read the stories of nineteen CEOs and marketing executives, many of them arguably among the most successful marketers today. They share their struggles and the lessons they learned that led to marketplace success with women."--BOOK JACKET.
