These differences create diverse consumer behavior in terms of sex, and can be seen in human relations, reactions to the individual and social behaviors, giving importance to the details and extra knowledge, searching perfect solutions, conversation styles and creating relationships.

Marketing mix strategies for women consumers are different when they are compared with male consumer markets, and are seen strategies such as product positioning, creating brand identity, product innovations, packaging, pricing, distrubition, advertising and personal selling.
