“Moms are the primary decision-makers in their homes. They also tend to be avid magazine readers. Over 70% of moms turn to the Internet or magazines on a regular basis for information and entertainment, and most also want to remain actively connected to their offline communities and families. We are the only coordinated publication platform that caters to this profile, to these connected women and moms - in print, online and via monthly social club events. What could be better?” adds Hulya Aksu.
