Multicultural Marketing is Now

The melting pot in major cities is yesterday’s news. According to Nielsen, “Multicultural consumers are rapidly becoming the core of the U.S. population,” which means they are taking the reins of buying power. These different groups of consumers engage with brands using technology in various ways to meet their needs. To keep up with this shift, brands need to understand this new wave of “Super Consumers” and diversify their marketing strategy to become more inclusive and relevant. Hear from these multicultural brand marketing experts on how they’re using insights and data to drive product innovation, personalized messaging and ultimately build meaningful relationships with multicultural consumers.
