[dropcap]W[/dropcap]ho is Our Reader?
Our target goddess is a woman aged 28 to 45 with a sweet spot of 35-44. Sure our multicultural lifestyle advice blog and web TV series have won several awards and attracted major press, but our people don’t care about that.
A bombshell or passionista is a woman who wants to live her healthiest, happiest, best life. Our woman most likely has a degree or two and is serious about her career. She lives in an urban center and makes about forty to seventy five thousand dollars a year. She’s always known that there was more to life than her daily experience.
She lives for fun, fashion, music, books and pop culture but is also grounded in the realities of life. She may be single or married but her love life is super important and she’s always looking for ways to improve it. If she’s single, she could write a book about her crazy “love” adventures.
When she’s not grooving to Jill Scott, Alicia Keys or Adele or working out with Beyonce with her friends, she’s a big fan of OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network in addition to WE-TV and Bravo. When the “Real Housewives” of anything are duking it out, watching it on one of her screens front and center but “Scandal” is her weakness.
Our technically savvy diva’s diet is not necessarily the best but she has a serious resolution to work on it. She still a fan of paper magazines. She’s got copies of her favorite niche publications like “Essence,” “Latina,” “Lilith” or “Bitch” right alongside her standards like “Vogue,” “Vanity Fair,” “ELLE” and “Glamour.” Yes, she was on that chick lit kick but now she’s taking it deeper.
This woman’s a fan of self-help, deeply immersed or just getting into it. Her favorite blogs include a mix of the Huffington Post, Jezebel and Clutch, beauty blogs like Curly Nikki and Cupcakes & Cashmere, and fashion blogs like Fashion Bomb Daily or Who What Wear.
She has disposable income when the economy is pumping and shops it high/low from Target for seasonal trends and Barney’s for staples. Yes, she’s all about a sale. Dove’s Real Beauty campaign had her at “hello,” she’s feeling the Greek yogurt trend and if Oprah Winfrey or Wendy Williams says check it out, she probably will give it a shot. It’s important for her to be in the know.
Don’t get it twisted though! Our queen will grab the latest scoop from TMZ and will NEVER confess that she got that skirt because she saw it on her favorite celeb first. So what? She plans on voting this election. She works hard but she hasn’t exactly figured out her passion. She came up watching “Sex and the City” and “Girlfriends” and still wants to have the good life.
When it comes to social media, she’s a facebook, twitter and pinterest junkie. When she finally feels ready for her closeup she’s be all over instagram. She eats whatever and has been on a diet at some point in the past. She considers her body, hair and her life a work in progress.
Our fabulous woman has no problem asking for advice when she needs it – or at least she’s learning to do so. She wants to be her best in love, fitness, beauty and inspiration. Yes, she’s hit Abiola up with an advice question or two and is ready to be coached to greatness. She enjoys also enjoys others gurus she can relate to like Afrobella, Curly Nikki, Gabby Bernstein or Gala Darling. She comes to Abiola’s Passionista Playbook for relationship advice plus positive living and inspiration. The smart, sassy and bold woman who frequents this site might find us via Google or from a friend. She most likely joins the passionista evolution via one of the major social media hubs: YouTube, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, Facebook and Instagram.
Coming up on the site over the next twelve months – more, more, MORE passionate living: more advice videos, sleeker interviews, cool shop, reader’s community and forum with challenges, confessions and more ways to be interactive PLUS more branded entertainment and sponsor partnerships that benefit our passionista in her quest to be the best she can be.
