How Do You Select LGBT Media For Your Marketing Mix in 2018? | LGBT Online Media, Marketing and Advertising | Scoop.it

Have you seen the trend where most media companies today spend all of their marketing time speaking about themselves? Take a look at their social media activity... is their main goal to simply drive traffic back to their website, and from their website, promote their advertisers?  Or are they actively promoting their advertisers directly from their social media activity?  The answers to these questions will help you determine which LGBT media company, blogger or influencer is right for you.  Not only are you asking yourself if they're well aligned with your brand.  You should also be asking yourself if they are bringing you, the advertiser, along with them as a partner on their daily journey, as they share, comment, like, post status updates, photos and videos.

Sexual Wellness Market in the US 2017-2021: Growing LGBT Population in Country

Sexual Wellness Market in the US 2017-2021: Growing LGBT Population in Country | LGBT Online Media, Marketing and Advertising | Scoop.it

Sexual wellness widely refers to wellbeing related to sexuality. Products that enhance sexual health and experience include condoms, sensual lingerie, lubricants, sex toys, contraceptives, costumes, and enhancement supplements. These products enhance pleasure during intimacy. They are entering the mainstream media, and the market is getting bigger every year because of their growing acceptance. The analysts forecast the sexual wellness market in the US to grow at a CAGR of 9.47% during the period 2017-2021 .

Matt Skallerud's insight:

One of the major drivers for this market is the growing LGBT population in country. A distinct population group in which individuals identify themselves in terms of their sexual orientation, specifically as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender, is collectively referred as the LGBT population. In the US, this segment is a key part of the entire population, and they are of more significance for the sexual wellness market as they are the primary end-users of the several types of products sold in the market. In 2011, the first national data was emerged for the LGBT population in the US. The Williams Institute at the UCLA School of Law collated data from four national and two state-level surveys and approximated around eight million people belonged to LGBT community in 2011. However, in 2016, over 3.1% of the US population identified themselves as LGBT.
