    I think this is a smart idea for Mazola to partner with WomensForum recipe tool. I don’t think it is so much about women wanting to follow the latest craze diets, but giving women a simple solution to fast healthy meals. I feel that the majority of the time women are the ones who will be looking up or just browsing websites like WomensForum possibly looking for something new to make either if it just for their family or just for themselves. Mazola did a excellent job at identifying who their consume would be and came up with a way to get their product out their. Now days women are busy with families, jobs, and other responsibilities this leaves very little time to sit down and watch TV or sit down and look through a magazine for quick easy recipes so being able to promote their product on the forum where women can get all of their information at once is an important thing for a company like Mazola. I also think that it is very smart for Mazola not to ignore there other types of advertising like magazines and television so that they are still able to promote their products to an older generation that might not have access to the Internet or social media. Overall I think the Mazola has done a smart thing by reaching out to their target audience and promoting in a way that will get them seen, but they should also try to find new ways to reach new audiences such as college students or even the single males.
