Why advertise on betterafter50.com?
Launched in November of 2011, Betterafter50.com is now the premier online magazine for baby boomer women ages 47 to 64 who are hip, edgy and embracing their next phase. Because women at mid-life do not want to be told what to buy, how to look, or what to do, by anyone other than those they can relate to - BA50 is where they go to learn from each other. BA50 publishes over 200 writers who are key influencers for women at mid-life.
On Betterafter50.com, women share personal stories and commentaries about their changing bodies, fashion challenges and beauty advice. Health, beauty, style and sex are topics we devour. Team BA50 curates topics around life, love, health, divorce, marriage, widowhood, dating, travel and careers – the landscape is vast.
BA50′s relish in our influencers’ experience and wisdom. Their stories are heartfelt, humorous and heady. That’s why BA50′s are listening to us.
Publishers Felice Shapiro and Ronna Benjamin are the anchor voices and leading influencers for BA50 each week. When we write every Tuesday – our readers listen. We have developed a following on our site and our social media. We are available to write product reviews.
Real time meet-ups for BA50s are scheduled throughout the year at our She Did It Events designed for women who are wanting to figure out their “What’s Next?” All of our events have been sold out thus far. Sponsorships are available for these events.
We post 7+ stories each Tuesday (including a Featured Sponsored Post), roll out fresh editorial daily, publish 3 newsletters a week to our subscribers (including Fashion Friday and Relationship Thursday Newsletters). BA50′s Facebook page engages with its readers with new content at least 3x each day. We Tweet, post on Pinterest and Instagram and are featured 2x a week on the Huffington Post.
