Importance of Cross-Cultural Marketing in Contemporary America
Demographics fluctuate perpetually. America’s diversity of population in 1900 vastly differs from that of 2016. The demographic of 2030 will be different from that of today. Over time, populations shift with sociological, political, and economic changes. Currently in Syria, politics, sociology and economy have combined in a negative maelstrom forcing millions to flee the country. They’ve zipped through Europe, all the way to the Netherlands, and now are spilling over into the United States with a ubiquity of pressures pushing more and more into the current population. New generations ideologically separate will rise within America, and meeting their needs will best be accomplished through a PR agency that has already devoted itself to following demographic fluctuations. This Latino PR agency is one among many that can be instrumental in capturing this future market, as it is already focused on diverse populations within the US as a whole, and their increasing numbers. Did you know that Hispanics occupy approximately one sixth of the total US population at over 55 million? This was not the case even twenty years ago. Ten years ago, the numbers were vastly different. That population is going to continue its growth over time, and ignoring such a market is definitely harmful to a business’s marketing campaign.
Reaching Diverse Businesses
With over 55 million possible consumers available, it would be ignorant for a business producing goods or services amenable to such individuals to refrain from marketing in their direction. It also makes sense that established businesses who don’t currently trend their marketing toward such a diverse population should begin to. This will have several benefits, though they may take time.
Firstly, by catering to a new and expanding market, your organization gains the skill-sets required to do the same again when new demographic changes force transition in corporate structure as relates to marketing. Secondly, the only way to successfully expand into another territory is to form partnerships and alliances with other businesses that are already involved with it. They’ll know the ins and outs, and they’ll also have their own territorial ideals. Going into it blind could put your organization in conflict with another unnecessarily, when instead a partnership offering mutual benefits on either side could have been arranged. To that end, strong market research is required to ensure your marketing efforts aren’t in deliberate conflict with another business’s. B2B is the abbreviation for “Business to Business” professional relationships. These offer mutual discounts, incentives, and marketing endeavors. Imagine a brand of Latino chips coupled with an authentic Mexican salsa.
Everybody wins! Certainly, not all marketing endeavors will be able to bring about alliances between established businesses and expanding ones–but finding a marketing agency that has a directed focus on expanding, changing demographics is an excellent way to establish identity and reach an entirely new kind of client. The best agencies which have prominent Latino focus are also helping each other nationalistic demographics in an expansive mode. They’ll have to transition as new groups expand just as your own organization will.
Because America is a melting pot, there are no shortage of diverse people-groups that are sometimes integrated, sometimes isolated from the general population. Integrating them will happen more easily if an agency that markets to one can also market to a completely different set of people, with totally opposite norms. Through proper outreach, lines of communication become wider, and cultural barriers gently erode. In the end, demographic pools become wider and easier to reach. The last 100 years have definitely demonstrated this trend. Advantages of such marketing focus transcend a niche-oriented approach of homogeneity.
