Two years after Walmart made headlines by announcing that it was eliminating its “multicultural marketing team” and making multicultural marketing a business imperative for everyone at the company, a majority of marketers are adopting the strategy under its new name: Total Market.

Some 54% of all advertisers are practicing some level of Total Market strategy, said Carlos Santiago, CEO of Santiago Solutions Group, which conducted a benchmark study on the subject for the agency association AHAA: The Voice of Hispanic Marketing. Of those, some 66% said Total Market approaches were already helping their businesses in measures such as market share and return on investment.
