Is Your Multicultural Healthcare Strategy Short-Sighted? In the age of the Affordable Care Act, multicultural healthcare is experiencing a "Renaissance" as the government, communities, and marketers work to realize the vision of affordable healthcare for all. For marketers, the sales growth potential among newly insured multicultural consumers is highly desirable. But the consumer-driven strategy used for consumer packaged goods or quick-service restaurants is not as applicable, because while adopting healthy behaviors starts with the lens of culture, it also involves a complex mix of practical, emotional, and psychosocial factors that requires a specialized approach to marketing communications.Consumer awareness and education around health behaviors and conditions are often the first step in building an effective healthcare strategy. But in order to drive action and convert sales, we need to leverage influencers and other stakeholders in the healthcare ecosystem. Physicians, nurses, caregivers, pharmacists, communities, managed care, and media all play a part along the path to wellness and, therefore, brand sales. Knowing the role and influence of each stakeholder is important as they can differ significantly from the general market. However, the critical piece is crafting a strategy that maps out precisely how and where each stakeholder influences decision making for your brand. This can make the difference between a smart investment and a wasted effort. At Prime Access, this is why we exist. And we love doing it.

Hispanics and Mobile Device Usage: An Integral Market Marketers striving to tap into the Hispanic market need to take into consideration the importance of mobile media, which has become a huge trend and an easy way to connect with Hispanic consumers. Over the past three years, Hispanics have taken a leading role in mobile device acquisition and usage. In 2011, their spending on mobile devices increased 30%, from $13.5 billion to an estimated $17.6 billion. By 2015, it is expected to reach $1.5 trillion. Hispanics over-index in mobile phone activities, accessing the Internet via mobile phones more than non-Hispanics. Of the many online activities Hispanics use their mobile devices for, shopping tops the list; along with banking, social networking and texting. Couple that with a high, and increasing, buying power, and you have a demographic that is eager to interact with brands. Marketers who don't do so will see it in their bottom line.

 Ethnic Technologies: Marketing to African Americans

The Census Bureau projects that by the year 2050, there will be more than 65.7 million African American individuals in the United States, comprising 15 percent of the total U.S. population. While traditional channels like broadcast and radio, remain important, digital mediums are becoming increasingly vital and applicable to marketers seeking to engage multicultural audiences. In fact Nielsen data validates that African Americans are dynamic and engaged consumers in the digital marketplace. African Americans are more likely to over-index in behaviors like tweeting and blogging, consume more internet and mobile video, interact with social media and produce or publish content using their mobile phones. Ethnic Technologies can help you or your clients reach this crucial market through any channel. We use a proprietary sequence of name data sets and name "rules" with additional identifications made through the combination of E-Tech's Enhanced Neighborhood Analytics (ENA) and name intelligence. Unlike Geo-Coding only and Surname-Only Systems, E-Tech is a complete and accurate solution. Contact Karen Sinisi, Sales and Marketing Director at 866-333-8324 Ext. 117 or karens@ethnictechnologies.com or visit www.ethnictechnologies.com

 

About Black History Month

To commemorate and celebrate the contributions to our nation made by people of African descent, American historian Carter G. Woodson established Black History Week. The first celebration occurred on Feb. 12, 1926. For many years, the second week of February was set aside for this celebration to coincide with the birthdays of abolitionist/editor Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln. In 1976, as part of the nation's bicentennial, the week was expanded into Black History Month. Each year, U.S. presidents proclaim February as National African-American History Month.

MMR has chosen two important changes noted by the census in "black" American communities:

Education

Voting

  • 17.8 million -The number of blacks who voted in the 2012 presidential election. In comparison to the 2008 election, about 1.7 million additional black voters reported going to the polls in 2012.
