Thank you for your interest in advertising with STEP-Carefully! for Stepparent! (SC!). We believe that SC! is a great place to advertise. Here's why:
* You know who is seeing your message. Pretty much every one our visitors are either stepparents, married to stepparents, or closely related to stepparents (grandparents, in-laws, etc.). The rest are interested in learning more about stepfamilies so they can help them (counselors, ministers, attorneys, etc.). That's a pretty focused demographic! They are not children, and they are at the peak of their earning power. They are primarily interested in family matters, family values, parenting issues, and marriage improvement. They are looking for ways to improve their family's lives, their comfort, and their happiness.
* Visitors do not usually surf in and then immediately surf out of SC!. Each Visitor spends an average of about 11 minutes at SC!.
* We create a sense of community, not that of a big, impersonal organization. This makes our messages more personal and credible. Our visitors come back again and again, especially as their family develops in age and complexity. Newly married couples looking for tips return as concerned parents looking for discipline advice, then as conflicted couples trying to stay together through challenges.
* They are high income couples from major markets, small families from small towns, hard working (step)moms and (step)dads, retired-but-active grandparents, in some cases they are single or single-again parents thinking of starting a new marriage relationship. They are building, growing, and seeking a better life.
* Because they trust us and because they deserve it, we are very loyal to our members and visitors. Which makes us an excellent choice for your advertising partner.
