ANA-AIMM’s Case for Change

Just released report from the ANA’s Masters of Marketing conference: “The Case for Change: Multicultural and Inclusive Marketing as a Business Imperative for Long-Term Growth” provides an exceptional resource to help marketing decision makers better understand the need for change in the face of the new contemporary marketplace. This study is particularly crucial as half of Fortune 500 companies are currently experiencing sales declines.

Written and researched by the ANA’s Alliance for Inclusive & Multicultural Marketing (AIMM) in partnership with Dávila Multicultural Insights and Santiago Solutions Group (SSG), the report makes the business case for Multicultural marketing to boost growth rather than a one-size-fits-all approach, which can fall short of comprehensive relevance and effectiveness.

Census Consensus: ‘Citizenship’ Would Be A Headache For Advertising, Media – MediaPost

March 28, 2018. MediaPost by Joe Mandase.- Obvious partisan political implications aside, the Trump White House’s push to add a “citizenship” question to the U.S. Census raises big issues for the world of marketing, advertising and media. Specifically, much of the industry’s most representative research is either based on or weighted to U.S. Census estimates of the size and composition of the population. If, as opponents fear, requiring people to state their citizenship creates a non-respondent bias among some people -- especially illegal aliens, or fearful legal aliens -- it will distort the representation of the population in the U.S. Census estimates and all the research benchmarked to it. ...

Covered California Eyes Latinos for Upcoming Enrollment Period – NPR, The California Report

October 27, 2017. KQED News by April Dembosky.- Starting next week, Americans will again be able to shop for health plans under the Affordable Care Act. But a lot of people don’t know that, because the Trump administration slashed the program’s marketing budget. In California, our state-run the marketplace plans to pick up the slack and will focus in particular on wooing Latino consumers. But, it’s going to be a hard sell.

"To convince someone that was uninsured to get it for the first time, obviously that message is not going to work, especially not this year," he says.
