Why E-Reader Brands Love (Social) Moms

May 6, 2011

Although most surveyed moms who own e-readers are happy with their devices, moms who use social media are far more likely than non-social moms to share information about their e-reader brand with friends and family and pay a higher price for their device, according to a survey from Motista.

Social media moms (women with one or more child under age 18 living at home who recently used social media) and non-social moms are nearly equally happy with their e-readers across the following measures:

  • Performance: Social media moms give their e-reader a 71.4% score (out of 80%) for "performing as promised," compared with 68.4% for non-social moms.
  • Satisfaction: Social media moms rate their e-reader a 75.5% for overall satisfaction, compared with 78.5% for non-social moms.

But social media moms feel a stronger connection with their e-readers, motivating them to advocate for their e-reader brands and be more responsive to offers from those brands:

  • 67.7% of social media moms have forwarded information about their e-readers to friends and family, compared with 33.2% of non-social moms.
  • 38.1% of social media moms say they have responded to a direct marketing promotion from their e-reader brand, compared with 6.6% of on non-social moms.

Moms who use social media feel deeper personal connections with their e-reader brands and are roughly twice as likely as non-social moms to say their e-reader brands help them…

  • Stay closer to loved ones: 42.2% vs. 19.5%
  • Fit in with friends and colleagues: 46.5% vs. 20.9%
  • Create a better home life: 43.1% vs. 21.5%

Moreover, twice as many social media moms are willing to pay a higher price for their e-reader (37.4% vs. 17.7%).
