Ep.3: Targeting Women, Targeting Moms The Rise and Fall of LuLaRoe

    • Society & Culture

LulaRoe targeted stay-at-home moms as their primary demographic. The company would market to these moms directly by touting flexibility and the idea of “full time pay for part-time work.” While appearing to support moms, the reality was they targeted women who felt undervalued, preying on women’s desires to feel “productive” and contribute to their family financially. Meg Conley, writer of the “Homeculture” newsletter, discusses  why these women are often locked out of the labor market, and how LulaRoe built their business on this so-called “underutilized resource” of stay-at-home-moms.
