Teen Girls: Always on a Social Shopping Mission

By Tobi Elkin, March 2011

This month, eMarketer sets its sights on teen girls and their shopping and social media habits. “Given their sheer number, potential spending power, internet and social media usage, teen girls represent an enormous opportunity,” the report says. “Retailers that tap this vein will attract new customers turned on by the viral buzz that girls themselves create.” Marian Salzman, president of ERWW PR and creator of its Sisterhood initiative, which was based on research that drew very similar conclusions, was interviewed for the extensive report. Among her insights: “Facebook almost becomes part of the shopping pursuit—girls might collect 15 points of view about a look or an outfit from a Facebook post. This makes shopping even more social and represents a new kind of stickiness.”
