Is this really the intelligence level of this list? -----Original Message----- From: thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org] On Behalf Of Courtenay Sent: Tuesday, October 19, 2004 8:37 PM To: alex at deltatraffic.co.uk; thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: Re: [thelist] marketing If you look at how we all evolved, it can give you some ideas. I realise this is overly simplistic, and there's a lot of crossover, but here it is anyway. Men, as the hunters, survived by being very task and concept-focused. I.e., hunting an animal for three days. Women (not being allowed to hunt!) were meanwhile maintaining relationships within the group, raising children etc. So the male audience tends more towards concepts, and female audience towards relationships between concepts. Does that make females better SQL coders? Don't know. So your "Men's" site would be more about the "What". Here are the features, this is what they can do with it. Here's what it looks like. Your "Women's" site is about how it helps them connect to others, and the feelings about the site, how the site/product makes them feel. It's more about *seduction* for female sites. Look up sites -run- by women. How it feels, what's the experience feel like. Pictures of people experiencing. Sure there's cross over, but if you want hard-n-fast rules, its a good starting point.
