GIRLSASKGUYS STUDY: Millennials Overwhelming Prefer Brunettes over Redheads, Blondes
Hair Color Survey
Marilyn Monroes platinum blonde look may no longer be the ultimate in sexual appeal according to a new study about what the opposite sex believes about hair color and attractiveness.
In a poll of nearly 600 Americans on GirlsAskGuys (GirlsAskGuys.com) a cross-gender question-and-answer social community with more than 10 million monthly participants consumers were asked about preferences in hair color in the opposite sex. Both men and women under 30 overwhelmingly said they preferred brunettes to both blondes and redheads.
What were seeing is that despite a lot of media portrayals to the contrary, people tend to prefer brunettes, said Tolga Tanriseven, founder and CEO of GirlsAskGuys. Its a wake-up call for advertisers, as well as media producers that actively court the millennial demographic. Sprinkle in some blondes and redheads in your productions, but feature the brunettes.
More than 65 percent of women said they prefer brunette men versus blondes (20 percent) and redheads (15 percent); while 49 percent of men said they prefer brunettes versus redheads (30 percent) and blondes (21 percent). In particular, males under age 18 are the most attracted to brunettes, with 55 percent choosing them over redheads and blondes.
Taken on GirlsAskGuys.com the poll was taken by 282 women and 306 men during the month of August.
Both men and women were then split over their preference for either redheads or blondes, which was most apparent for men ages 25-29, who prefer redheads (35 percent) over blondes (15 percent). Conversely, 20 percent of women prefer blonde men, compared to just 15 percent of redheads. The discrepancy is largest for women 25-29, who prefer blondes (21 percent) over redheads by (12 percent).

Online Reputation and Social Media Management
Even though a company sees the value of social media, it doesnt mean the organization or its members are ready for it. Have you started something you really werent ready for? Sometimes it works out and other times it doesnt.
In order for companies to realize the maximum benefit from social media marketing, there must be a certain level of understanding about the nature of online communities, social media sharing web sites and applications. One of the most effective ways TopRank Online Marketing has found to assess a companys awareness, capabilities and resources for social media marketing is to conduct an external audit and an internal survey.
Identifying a companys current state of social media readiness helps determine benchmarks and sets a baseline from where to build from. This is part of developing a social media strategy and helps avoid the random testing many companies are calling their social media strategy.
There are a number of free or low cost tools that one can use to identify a brands current social web participation, ranging from social media monitoring software to profile checking tools like KnowEm to social search tools like How Socialable, 48ers or socialmention.
With many companies, there are often a mix of official and unsanctioned social media accounts setup. Its important to get a handle on such participation, whos managing the accounts, whether they are run by employees or fans and what the company can learn from them. Getting a handle on the difference between how social the company is and will need to become is essential for planning, training and strategy development.
As part of the evaluation process, here are a few questions companies might ask themselves and answer as they embark on a social media marketing journey:
What goals do you hope to achieve from a social media marketing effort?
What measures of success will be used to evaluate a social media marketing program?
What are your current social media channels and destination web sites/pages?:
Do you employ a full-time community manager?
If not, do multiple staff share the role of community manager?
Are you conducting a formal effort at monitoring social channels using a social media monitoring/analysis software application? (Ex: Techrigy SM2, ScoutLabs, Trackur, Vocus, SocialRadar, Radian6)
Is there a particular business unit, division or product that can serve as a test case?
If active, how long has the company participated with social media sites and which? Blogging, Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn, Twitter, Flickr, YouTube, Wikis, Delicious, Digg, StumbleUpon, etc
Are current social media participation on different sites coordinated?
Is a dashboard and campaign management tool used for social media content promotion?
Have you noticed any particular preferences within the target audience in their social web participation?
Do they prefer particular sites? (Twitter vs Facebook blogs vs forums)
Do they comment, do they contribute content, do they tend to observe, do they not participate at all?
Have you identified and engaged and/or networked with influentials in your target industry on social web sites?
What unique value do current social media efforts offer clients/prospective clients? What need do they satisfy better than the competition?
Are text content or media regularly shared on other social media sharing sites?
Is there a user generated content component of your web site? Profiles, comments, reviews, content sharing: text, image, video or audio?
What departments, business units, cost centers and approval entities would be involved with the Social Media program? Is there an internal social media council?
What internal human resources are available within the company for support and implementation of social media marketing initiatives? (Content creation, network development, promotion, monitoring & analytics, community engagement)
Obviously each situation is as unique as the company and its objectives, but the list above can provide valuable insight into a companys state of social media marketing readiness as well as provoking new thoughts and concepts. The more informed companies are about the social web, the more successful they will be at qualifying and managing social media marketing agency engagements.
You might be wondering, why did I pick 19 questions when 20 would be a much nicer, even number? Its because Im curious what your 20th question would be. What are we missing? What else would you ask to determine the social media readiness of a company, business unit or division?
Manage My Socials – Social Media Management Service
It started based on the simple premise of “What Are You Doing?” and “What’s On Your Mind?” and exploded into a worldwide phenomenon that continues to spread on a daily basis.
Were talking about Social Media, and unless you’ve been hiding at your vacation home on Neptune, you’ve heard about or been on one of these networks. Sites like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Linked In, Foursquare, Plaxo, MySpace, and hundreds of others have linked the world together and created communities for people to relax, interact, share, and gain insight.
Facebook alone is pushing 500 MILLION active users, currently. If Facebook were a country, its population would be the 3rd highest in the WORLD, outnumbering the United States.
Social Media Covers More Ground Than You Think
Many people label Social Media as the sites I listed above. However, social sites go further than just your Facebook and Twitter account. Social Networking sites also consists of:
– Blogs – Videos and Podcasting
– Customer Reviews
– Social Bookmarking Sites (Reddit, Digg, Delicious)
– Message Boards, Forums, Wikis
If a website provides the ability to socialize, it can be considered Social Media.
What is Social Media Management and Why Does Your Business Need It?
When the popularity of one medium grows and thrives, another one wanes and suffers. This is the case with many of the print mediums that used to effectively reach consumers. The big yellow books, mailers, newspaper fliers, even TV and radio commercials have lost the ability to speak to their audience because Social Media, search engines, and blogs enable the consumer to gather information on their own watch. This is a huge removal from the interruption-based ad campaigns of yesterday, where companies shouted their message at a mass audience, hoping to turn a small percentage of that audience into paying customers.
But the evolution of social networking sites has led to an evolution in the way businesses market to customers. Now, instead of investing large sums of money into advertisements the majority will never see, companies are redirecting those funds towards Social Media campaigns and building relationships with their customer base along the way.
At first, many people viewed sites like Twitter and Facebook as a waste of time (If you would’ve proposed a Facebook or Twitter-based marketing campaign three years ago, your colleagues would’ve had you committed). Now, it’s become mainstream. Companies realize this trend isn’t going to die off and they’re utilizing it to bridge the gap between themselves and their customers.
One obstacle that comes with efficient social networking use is the time required to learn a new skill set to get the most from your efforts. For many managers and owners, their plate is already full. So adding this task to the game plan simply doesn’t fit. Or, they may understand Social Media’s importance, but they may not know where to start.
This is where bringing in a Social Media Manager can be a tremendous asset. Instead of worrying about learning how to do everything right, you can allow your Manager to handle all the heavy lifting, thus freeing you up focus on your trade and provide exceptional customer service, as well as interact with your potential customer base and build that rapport that leads to future sales through the networks your Social Media Manager develops and nurtures.
Social Media allows you to take advantage of a hot trend that’s captivated the masses. With its overwhelming popularity, the potential to reach customers on sites like Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks far outweighs that of a costly Yellow Page or newspaper advertisement.
