When it comes to buying and consuming different forms of media, there is no one-size-fits-all preference. Some of us tend to be on the cutting edge of technological advances, while others enjoy reading, watching and listening in more established ways. And consumer preferences have as much to do with spending power as they do with ethnic background. Read the rest of this entry »
Device fragmentation is a tenacious problem for content providers and advertisers.

Media viewing preferences are much like our individual penchants for food—they vary by region. Some of us love a good Philly Cheesesteak, while others might opt for a Maine lobster. The same is true for how we consume media, and subsequently how much we consume, according to Nielsen’s first Local Watch Report. Read the rest of this entry »

I have been conducting ethnographic interviews with Hispanics in the last several months and have visited many homes and talked to many Latino women.

I got the impression they are very much into the hair style product category, but qualitative observations can only go so far in terms of making generalizations about the population.

In a world of constant change, being culturally relevant and future-focussed is increasingly important. Culturally-connected brands can be nimble and operate in real time. When your brand is part of culture, not sitting on the surface, you stand a better chance of being noticed and loved.
But how exactly do you connect with something as amorphous as ‘culture’? And how do you know when you’re doing it right? Read the rest of this entry »

The Latino population in the U.S. is growing—and in places many people might not be looking.

“To know thy own target audience” could be the mantra of today’s successful marketing campaigns. Hispanic Millennials, GenXers and Boomer generational segments have unique consumer buying patterns. How they view the marketplace is influenced by a combination of macro-trends of their respective generations, by their lifestage priorities, and by their cultural orientation. This AHAA study, in collaboration with AARP, Targeting the Best Hispanic Consumer: A Generational and Cultural Orientation Study, dives into the differences in buying behavior of these segments as well as how they compare to their general market counterparts. In doing so, this study identifies business building opportunities for marketers.
In this time of a growing Hispanic demographic, corporate focus on ROI, and an increasingly competitive market, Thought Leadership is vital for Hispanic marketers to succeed. Through a series of research studies, webinars and strategic partnerships with the best market research companies, AHAA is leading the charge to help educate marketers on the increased need to segment properly for higher ROI and not treat the vast Hispanic market as a “one size fits all.”
The study, underwritten by AARP, used Scarborough USA(2012) to measure product usage and Doublebase GfK MRI (2012) to measure attitudes and conducted a broad field study that tied the findings to key cultural metrics. Read the rest of this entry »
