Things to Keep in Mind When Marketing to the Modern Family

Here is everything you need to know about marketing to the modern family:

The Uniqueness of the Modern Family

First, let’s start off with some statistics. Did you know that today’s U.S. families are the most diverse ever? Check this out:

How Brands Should Respond

When connecting with families today, it’s key that brands are not about trying to be all things to all people. Families are diverse in gender, race, ethnicity, relationships, and more. Connect with families by acknowledging the infinite varieties in our world today. Bond over the differences and the shared experiences of diversity.

Because of these differences, inclusivity is key. Think about dihow your language and images will be interpreted by all members of all types of families. Rather than communicating with “moms,” consider reframing to talk directly to the stay-at-home parent, the financial manager of the family, or the shopper in the family. In today’s world, dads take on much more responsibility in the home than past generations.

Our Example

By crafting inclusive messaging and engaging a diverse group of influencers with children, the campaign was a great success. It garnered over 11 million impressions and 600 shares and comments across social media.
