New Study: Moms in America Are Optimistic

New Edison Research Study, “Moms on the Future,” To Showcase With Live Webinar, October 13

Even in a year awash with negative headlines, more than three quarters of moms in the U.S. have a positive outlook for the world their children will live in.

That’s one of the key findings of a new study from The Research Moms at Edison Research. The full study, “Moms on the Future,” will debut live at the Marketing to Moms conference in NYC.  The Research Moms are also hosting a live, free Webinar October 13th at 2 p.m. to present this exciting new data to the general public.

In the new study: when asked to imagine the lives of their children as adults, 60% of moms feel their children’s lives will be better than theirs.

84% of moms think their children have a fair opportunity to achieve the life they hope for.

“Moms on the Future” is a study of more than 500 adult women who are the parent  or guardian of children age 21 or younger. The study views moms’ hopes for and concerns about the future through questions about financial planning, the relevance and value of a college education, and many other measures.

“Moms on the Future” promises to be as influential and widely quoted as Edison Research’s recent studies on radio, digital media usage, and podcasting. Registration for “Moms on the Future” is free on a first-come, first-served basis.

May the FOMO be with you

In honor of Star Wars Day (May the 4th) we wanted to revisit our space-inspired “Ear Wars: The Listeners Speak Back” research presentation from 2016’s Country Radio Seminar.

With increasing competition from other forms of audio, this presentation urged broadcasters to instill “FOMO” (Fear of Missing Out) at every opportunity in the broadcast day – if you’re not listening to the radio, you’re missing out.

“Ear Wars” combined a 1,560 respondent online survey with listener and radio station interviews in three markets: Terre Haute, IN, Knoxville, TN, and Philadelphia, PA. Survey data and interviews with listeners show that connection, engagement, and community involvement are all important ways for radio stations to create reasons to keep listening. We also visited top radio stations WIVK, WTHI, and WXTU to illustrate just a few of the methods stations can employ to meaningfully engage with listeners.

Broadcasters: how have you used the FOMO philosophy in your programming?
