Shocking news: men have hearts!

social media: men have a heartWho would have thought! Men care and have a soft spot or two. The survey of men by The PRWeek/Barkley Cause Survey has found interesting data about men’s attitudes towards brands that have a cause marketing program.

Men are an important audience to consider when crafting cause marketing initiatives, finds this year’s PRWeek/Barkley PR Cause Survey.

  • 88% of men answered it’s important for them that a brand supports a cause
  • 61% have made a purchase because the brand supported a cause
  • 67% would try a brand because it supported a cause
  • 55% are willing to pay more for a brand that supports a cause

So, yes we care! Men are actually human and if you touch something that is important for us we will react favorably. Most of the marketers do not use that to their advantage as 68% say that they have no plans of targeting men with their cause efforts. Here’s your opportunity to bolster you marketing effort.
