ulive & POPSUGAR Release Findings that Explore Emotional Connection Between Women and Digital Lifestyle Videos
SAN FRANCISCO and NEW YORK, April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The findings of a new study were released today, exploring how women integrate lifestyle video into their lives, its impact on purchasing behavior and how brands can benefit from aligning with premium, lifestyle content. The study, which focused on U.S. women, ages 18-49, was jointly commissioned by ulive, the online lifestyle video brand from Scripps Networks Interactive, Inc. (NYSE: SNI) and POPSUGAR, a global lifestyle media and technology company, and conducted by Ipsos OTX.
"One of the most interesting findings is the desire women have for content that is positive in tone. With the large amount of negative and salacious commentary found on the web, women increasingly seek funny, profound and inspirational videos that are compelling and entertaining," says Rob McLoughlin, vice president of POPSUGAR Insights.
"Women seek out and value lifestyle videos for two main reasons: To learn something new about a topic they care about and to be entertained, wherever they are," says Lisa Choi Owens, COO of ulive. "This combination of learning and entertainment works well for brands to engage this valuable demographic as well as further understand their purchasing behaviors."
The key findings include:
POPSUGAR and ulive are leading producers of original lifestyle content, and together, their distribution reaches tens of millions of women every month. For a deeper look into the findings of this joint research study, please visit POPSUGAR Insights (insights.popsugar.com).

POPSUGAR and ulive partnered with Ipsos OTX on a study that was conducted in two parts. First, Ipsos OTX conducted a qualitative research phase to understand women's attitudes towards lifestyle video. For the purposes of this study, "lifestyle" content referred to topics that include entertainment, fashion, beauty, food/cooking, parenting, wellness/health/fitness, home/garden, smart living/personal technology and travel. Next, Ipsos OTX fielded a quantitative survey of 524 U.S. women between the ages of 18-49. The survey was recruited with demographic and video usage quotas to ensure national representation along with statistical rigor. The study was fielded in April of 2014.
