DEEP DIVES Special Edition:
Indie Women

They’re in the news everywhere right now: New York magazine ran a large cover story on them this month. They were featured on NPR’s Fresh Air and On Point. Ad Week is proclaiming them the new target to explore… and they’re the most powerful voters this year.

But who is this elusive new target that virtually no marketer is going after?

They’re Indie Women: 27 and older, unmarried, no kids, highly educated... and there’s 31 million of them.

These women have been largely overlooked by mass marketers, media outlets, and researchers.
However, there is very little research to understand what makes them different, why they are important and what drives them at a deeper level --  and how to tap into their deepest drivers to engage them.

Spotting this trend nearly a year ago, and inspired by the Curve Report, Olson Zaltman’s Carrie Patterson Reed and Jessica Ames Kukreti conducted their own study on these women - and we’re here to share the insights, to tell their deeper story.
Using the patented ZMET technique, Olson Zaltman conducted a deep dive to get to the heart of who these women are, what they value, and how they lead a life of creativity and exploration.

What’s inside the report:
  • Understanding the current social context
  • Exploring the values of these women and the issues that are meaningful to them
  • Explaining how marketers can engage with this segment
Too many marketers are overlooking the opportunities to connect meaningfully with this powerful group of cultural pioneers. Please click here to download your copy of our report.
