Entertainment Behemoth takes the needs of their online audience to heart.
Moms are increasingly turning to the Internet for answers to everything from problems with teething babies to financing college. Based on research into their online audience Disney is launching a new website aimed at providing these answers the AP reports.
Web-savvy and 32-million strong, U.S. mothers spend almost as much time online as women as a group, according to eMarketer’s new report, "Moms Online: Parenting With Web 2.0."
And they’re not just on children and parenting sites. The biggest opportunity for marketers targeting moms online is social networking sites, says the report.
Disney has plunged right in to this space with their new website Family.com
Family intends to be a one-stop site for parents, especially mothers, providing everything from Internet search to user-generated articles on key topics such as education and food, and, eventually, a ‘ParentPedia,’ a compilation of information on 1,000 topics that can be expanded by users.
Parents have become a larger part of Disney’s online audience, accounting for nearly half of the 25 million unique visits per month to the Disney.com site, the company said. Most of those are moms.
Disney surveyed 30,000 mothers over the past year to find out what they are looking for online. The openness of the new site along with trusted content vouched for by Disney is what moms say they want..
The site will be in beta till the summer.
