Newer Media Platforms Used to Reach Multicultural Consumers
To reach multicultural consumers, more than half (56%) of marketers are increasing their investments in newer media platforms, according to an Association of National Advertisers member survey. Another 35% are holding their spending at the same level, while only 9% are reducing their investments in newer media. The companies' own website was noted most often (92% ) as the media platform that enjoyed the highest usage in targeting multicultural consumers.
In addition the survey found that:
- Online ads on third-party websites garnered (80%)
- Search engine marketing, paid keyword (72%)
- Search engine optimization, organic (64%)
This report dovetails a finding from a survey conducted by comScore and commissioned by Terra: Hispanics are the ideal online consumers, willing to engage across multiple digital platforms and more receptive to new technology than non-Hispanics. That report found that while non-Hispanics may tend to look at interactive advertising as intrusive, Hispanics seem to be appreciative of the brands that are trying to reach out to them via culturally relevant messaging in English and Spanish.
