Why We Believe In A MultiCultural Approach To Digital Advertising
April 09, 2018
At AcuityAds, we pride ourselves on being at the forefront of the digital advertising industry. This isn’t just because of our cutting edge technology solutions and insightful data, it is also because of our interest in learning about the real challenges and priorities of our clients, in an effort to provide them with the best tools and strategies to achieve their goals. A topic at the forefront of our interests this year is how our clients can take a multicultural approach to their digital advertising strategies.
According to eMarketer calculations based on the latest US Census estimates, the number of Hispanics in the US will rise from 55.4 million in 2014 to 63.6 million in 2020. One household products maker The Clorox Company believes that multicultural groups will drive the company’s growth, and consider Hispanics a key target.
This trend applies across the continent, and is inclusive of Canada where currently one in five Canadians are born outside of the country. Canada’s multicultural groups are digitally savvy consumers, and they expect brands to reach them with meaningful messaging in the right context.
On that note we are extremely excited to announce our membership with the new Portada Council System on the Brand Star Committee. Portada is the leading networking solution platform for dynamic tech, marketing and media companies targeting consumers through cultural insights and passion points across the Americas.
The Globalization of Marketing
The world of commerce is more digitally connected than ever, and many emerging economies are moving into the forefront of the global stage. Marketers hoping to build and maintain market share within the constantly changing digital landscape must adopt a multicultural mindset to truly thrive. As the digital world becomes increasingly connected, marketers must learn to account for a wider variety of cultures, behavioral patterns and market trends in their campaigns.
“Tapping into specific cultural insights that connect with specific audiences is key.”
