I'm the soccer mom who GETS it. I'll tend to the bump on your head, but then ask you how in the hell this could have happened in the first place. I'm your target market. I'm your target demographic. I'm the gal to whom you're selling, so who better to voice it to others like me? (And, according to AdWeek, 96 percent of the influence in a purchase belongs to the ladies -- whose spending power is estimated to be $5 TRILLION! HELLO!!!)
In other words...conversational, believable, genuine, warm, caring, professional, girl-next-door, friendly, corporate, authoritative, educated, animated, ironic, sassy...you get the drift.
