Hello North House! I hope you all had a swell break with little to none awkward conversations about politics on Thanksgiving. Also, I apologize for posting the blog a day later. But there’s no need to focus on the past while we are in the present.
While we are focusing on the present, I would like to talk about a subject that should much more attention today, but is ignored. For your blog, I picked a video about gendered marketing.
Most of us do not realize it, but the market is unnecessarily divided. For those of you who have not noticed, many of the household products advertised have two different versions: one for men and another for women. But why do we need two versions of the exact same product?
For this blog, I have three different prompts. Two of the prompts will be gender specific, but if you feel you can answer prompt feel free to respond to it. Please indicate what prompt you are responding to at the top of your post.
If you buy more female marketed products, do you feel the pink colors and more “feminine” packaging makes you more inclined to buy a product? Do you feel gendered packaging is necessary? Do you feel it is are fair? Would you mind if were to disappear?
If you buy more male marketed products, do you feel the blue colors and more “masculine” packaging makes you more inclined to buy a product? Do you feel gendered packaging is necessary? Do you feel it is are fair? Would you mind if were to disappear?
If you buy a mix of, or more gender neutral products, do you purchase them for practicality or aesthetic preferences? Does the gendered marketing persuade you to buy a product catered to your gender? Do you care for the gendered packaging? Would you mind if they were to disappear?
