    Last weekend, I stopped into Target to pick up some sunblock. As I stood in the aisle scanning my options, I noticed a mom next to me with her daughter who appeared to be around 12 years old.

  • Couponing In The Digital Age in Engage:Moms on 05/26/2017

    Last weekend, I stopped into Target to pick up some sunblock. As I stood in the aisle scanning my options, I noticed a mom next to me with her daughter who appeared to be around 12 years old. The mom was also looking for sunblock but she had another digital tool at her disposal to help make her selection. The mom handed her daughter three difference sunblock bottles all from three different manufacturers and she said, "Scan these on the Target app on my phone and see which one has a coupon offer." Her daughter obliged and when one of the three options showed a discount, that was the one she threw into her cart. She put the other two bottles back on the shelf and moved on.

  • Will Consumers Buy Groceries Online? in Marketing: CPG on 04/13/2017

    A few weeks ago I wrote an article for "Engage:Moms" about a recent study we fielded related to online grocery shopping.

    In late 2015, Oreo cookies ran a successful promotion tied to the holidays called "Oreo Colorfilled." The brand cleverly engaged consumers online by allowing them to personalize special holiday-themed packages of Oreos to send to friends.

  • The Erosion Of Trust And What It Means For Brands in Engage:Moms on 02/24/2017

    There is no escaping the term "fake news" these days. All you have to do is scroll through your news feed and the term appears on a regular basis. This, coupled with some of the scandals that have been plaguing corporations recently such as Volkswagen faking emissions tests and the makers of the EpiPen increasing its cost by 400%, has had an impact on consumer trust. And it isn't a positive one.

  • A Gorilla In Our Midst: Western Lowlands And The Social Media High Life by Barbara Lippert (Mad Blog on 06/02/2016)

    Well said and thank you for taking the time to say it. What's very disturbing is the fact that negativity toward women has permeated every aspect of our lives -- especially on social media where everything from our appearance to our parenting to our professional lives has become fodder for hurtful and insensitive comments. I think women need to stand up for one another and fight back against this negativity. I wonder if women would support a movement committed to curbing prejudicial or insensitive commentary about women online?
