Furthermore, a mother possesses the power to make purchasing decisions when it comes to buying products for her and everyone else in the household. These decisions are hugely influenced by online targeting of various brands.

Read on to know the various ways that will help you target Indian moms on digital platforms.
Relevant content creation is the initial step towards connecting with Indian moms on digital platforms. On average, mothers invest around 15 hours per week on the internet, thus making it crucial to curate content they can relate to. Wow, facts related to moms, emotional and humorous content are some ways of reaching out to mothers. The content must trigger the reaction “Ahh… That’s so me!”. Mothers further share this content on their social media platforms as it helps them voice their opinions, in return enhancing your page visibility.
One of our clients, Sunfeast Mom’s Magic, shines a spotlight on mothers and kids. The content is curated keeping in mind the target audience and is not always sales but tries to connect with the spirit of both childhood and motherhood.
Expecting and new mothers carry out double the searches as compared to other women. After becoming a mother, her purchase decisions highly alter and are centered around baby care.

Hence, right targeting is the key to tapping into this audience. A brilliant SEO strategy that encompasses a mix of the relevant long tail and short tail keywords will work wonders. Moreover, mothers should be targeted while trying to boost content on social media platforms for the best results.
