WILD SKY MEDIA TAPS INTO THE MINDS OF MOMS IN REAL-TIME WITH ZERO PARTY DATA

Oct 6, 2022

Boca Raton, Florida, UNITED STATES Boca Raton, FL, Oct. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bright Mountain Media, Inc. (OTCQB:BMTM), Wild Sky Media, a top 5 parenting publisher whose premium portfolio includes flagship properties CafeMom and MamásLatinas, unveiled their new zero party data platform MomIndex™ which provides real-time insights into the world’s most powerful consumer, mom. In order to get in touch with moms directly, Wild Sky Media is utilizing zero-party data. Zero-party data, a term coined in 2020 by Forrester Research, is data that a customer voluntarily shares with a brand. Contrast that with third-party data, which is collected externally without the customer’s explicit consent or knowledge. Zero-party data is not only more trustworthy and accurate than third-party data, but also allows brands to connect more personally with customers. Matt Drinkwater, CEO of Wild Sky Media’s parent company, Bright Mountain Media, explains, “Our sites were built on the idea of community — it’s in our DNA as a company — so this year we renewed our investment in this virtual village in order to forge deeper, more meaningful relationships with our core audience of moms. Insights have always been an essential element of our business model, so leveraging zero-party data was a natural evolution for us. MomIndex™ allows us to hear directly from our audience, providing us a digital pipeline into what moms are thinking at that very moment. Understanding moms’ current mindset — their hopes, dreams, questions, concerns — allows us to have a conversation with them in real-time and better serve their needs.” MomIndex™, which gives advertising partners access to Wild Sky Media’s zero-party data for consumer insights and targeting across their portfolio of sites, began rollout last week. Justin Santino, Wild Sky Media’s SVP of Revenue Operations, adds, “As we enter into a difficult economic period, knowing exactly how moms plan to navigate the challenges ahead has never been more important. MomIndex™ will play an integral role in informing our advertising and ecommerce campaigns, as well as our editorial curriculum. MomIndex™ will allow our brand partners to gain a deeper understanding of how to forge actionable insights with moms.” Wild Sky Media will regularly share findings from MomIndex™ in the coming months. The inaugural study will dive into the concept of the “default parent” — the invisible load of parenthood that falls to one parent (typically moms) and the impact it has on budgeting and planning, especially as we approach the holiday season.

Circle of Moms

Circle of Moms is an online social community for moms, that allows them to share advice and support essential to the journey of motherhood. Per the firm, more than 13% of moms in the US are members as of September 2010. Moms use their trusted friendship circles and thousands of vibrant communities to connect with moms they already know and moms with common interests they meet on Circle of Moms. The site enables moms to ask questions and get useful recommendations, discuss their latest topic of interest with other moms who share their passions, and find empathy and encouragement in a safe environment. Circle of Moms also enables moms to record special moments in their children's lives and share them with friends and family. Per the company, as of September 2010, 7% of children born in 2008 in the US have a profile at Circle of Moms. Circle of Moms was founded in the summer of 2007 by entrepreneurs Ephraim Luft and Mike Greenfield who launched Circle of Friends, a Facebook Application that allows users to keep track of their different groups of Facebook friends by creating "circles" of related friends. They saw that moms were the most passionate users, and that there was a special need for moms to connect with fellow moms to help each other solve problems. Ephraim and Mike reached out to moms to learn how an online community can be a safe place to share thoughts and advice about motherhood. Guided by the real-life needs of moms, they built Circle of Moms and launched the site in October 2008. In February 2012, Circle of Moms was acquired by Sugar Inc. The valuation of Circle of Moms was undisclosed. Other terms of the deal were not released.
