When it comes to lucrative consumer segments, moms are one of the best
places to start.
They hold a huge amount of consumer equity and have a vast influence over purchase made by the entire family.  They even influence things that their adult children buy.  Moms also put a great deal of stock in the opinions of other moms.  They are also extremely active on social networks.
These factors make testimonials from moms very important.  Their high use of mobile devices and reliance on the reviews of other moms also put a premium on social sharing.
