As a Baby Boomer travel & lifestyle blogger, I encourage brand collaboration so that I may help promote products and services that authentically serve my audience of active women over 50.
Let me help you spread your message as a content writer and social media influencer.
My target market is active Baby Boomer – women over 50. Topics I typically write about include travel, food, wellness, fashion, beauty, entertainment, lifestyle and issues pertaining to Baby Boomers. I approach brand collaboration in a variety of ways – in the form of sponsored posts, giveaways, affiliate programs, advertising opportunities, press events and FAM trips. For my current statistics, please download my media kit. (updated 9-5-2018)
The Baby Boomer Market comprises 40% of the market share
According to Forbes Magazine, there are over 70,000,000 Baby Boomer consumers making it a huge and affluent market that controls 70% of all disposable income in the U.S. They are also tech-savvy.
96% of baby boomers use search engines, 95% use email, and 92% shop for products and services online rather than shopping in stores and shopping malls.
After spending over 6+ decades on the planet, I’ve had a world of experience.
Travel and Fun – Exploring the world is my passion and I blog about the places on the planet I happen to land. As a resident of Los Angeles, I attend culinary and entertainment events, local attractions, visit historical sites, go on hikes, and walking tours. I live within driving distance to Orange County, Ventura, Santa Barbara, San Diego, Temecula, Palm Springs, San Luis Obispo and other Southern and Central California locations. I’m also willing to travel to other states in the U.S and abroad. Foreign countries I’ve visited so far include Italy, Spain, Austria, Hungary, Germany, France, Poland, Czech Republic, Gibraltar, England, Portugal, Mexico, Canada, and the Caribbean. Please consider me for press trips and special events.
Eating smart and clean is my mantra and I create healthy recipes for longevity that are low in sugar without processed ingredients, artificial flavors or preservatives. I do not promote junk food, meal replacement diet plans, and most supplements. However, I’m a die-hard foodie and love to attend culinary and foodie events.
Wellness – Maintaining good health, staying active, self-care, having a positive body image, living long and happy as we age are other topics I write about. I’m particularly interested in alternative healing, and disease prevention.
Image – Women in the Baby Boomer demographic (50+) want to look sharp and not frumpy. Fashion over 50, vibrant and luminous skincare products and spa pampering are topics all my readers love.
Reinvention – Women midlife and beyond are reinventing themselves multiple times as they transition from traditional jobs. They’re looking for new opportunities, want to improve themselves and be solvent and successful after retirement. They tend to live longer than men and take care of children, parents, and relationships. (often all at the same time) Products that promote self-improvement and empowerment would be of interest to my audience.
