It seems the percentage of Wizzley members is largely female. What percentage exactly is our member base ratio? How should or could this impact our writing style if geared toward demographics, it too seems largely women?

From the top of my head, I don't know our male-female-ratio. But I know this: we don't write for our membership - we write for the world out there, and we try to get found by anyone who's interested.  Smile


Achim "Chef Keem" Thiemermann is the co-founder of a pretty cool new platform called...um...er...oh, yeah - Wizzley.com.

Yes this I know, not the question?

Let me try again, 

I writer for the world out there

I hope to attain a broad audience

Our demographics (out there) are largely women

Any thoughts on bringing in more male readers?

I have fashion articles for men that do insanely well at another site, and yet my male oriented articles don't get much traffic here.

Just hoping to do better, diversify and looking for advice as to how I might do so.

Male audience is easy: beer, cars, gadgets, PC games, beer, sports, did I mention beer?

Cheers;)

Perhaps it's to do with the name:

Hubpages sounds masculine

Squidoo sounds transgender

Wizzley sounds feminine

- to me, anyway. Say them out loud. HP = lower vocal range, S = middle range, W = higher range.

Perhaps internet men are not connecting with their feminine side, or at least don't want to.

Just a thought.

Now PageWizz sounds more masculine to me.

we have about 200 writers (since I've been at my day job there have been more than 600 writers) and the same phenomenon is true- 95% of our writers are women! On HP if you hang out long enough you realize the same seems to be over there too... the irony is that the target audience, regardless of the sex of the writer, is not one or the other but all of them, depending on what your writing about of course...

If we are comparing sites - Squidoo is also absolutely dominated by ladies and I believe the selling part is more 'girlish' too. It is not only caused by the fact there are more WAHM than WAHFs (have to check is this exists at all), but we should be aware of the socializing aspect of these sites. Communicating skills of male and female brains are different (even without beer influence). It is a proven fact.

I have read somewhere FB also has much more female users and they are more active. And another one: buying audience on the net - women are more willing to buy something on-line than men. If you have women audience, you have the right audience.

You guys have me laughing out loud! 

I keep practicing the name "Hubpages" in my best bass voice. (Truth is I sing 1st soprano in my community choir.) Huuuub pages. It helps if you lift your elbows and thrust them forward.

Beer? I'm in.

I not like beer... but to be a sport I'll go get a 6 pack of root beer in a beer looking bottle... :)

I see I missed another great party.  Are you guys still drunk enough to keep the beer day celebration going?

My favorite is a shandy.
