About the webinar

Men’s products have been on an exponential uphill for almost a decade, especially in areas of personal care and grooming; reflecting a boom in areas of self-gratification and, simply put, sex appeal.

Compared to this decade of men’s product development, marketing to women has been the norm for centuries. As such, men’s products tend to embody visuals and claims that stereotype men as overly feminized or sheer buffoons. While research has shown that men and women emote differently, the truth is that real men fall in between.

To make personal care marketing to men more effective, marketers must focus first on emotional marketing and the benefits that products can provide and second on who is making the actual purchase: the man in question or his leading lady.

Through a meta-analysis of messages across a plethora of categories, we shared four tips to keep in mind when creating claims and communications messages for men.
