18 Jul An Introduction To Diversity And Ethnic Marketing
What is diversity marketing?
Diversity marketing is the practice that involves strategizing a marketing campaign that recognizes the differences amongst the social and target groups with respect to multiple factors like – age, gender, disability, culture, religion, ethnicity, appearnce, and sexual identity. Basically, multicultural and ethnic advertising is the kind of marketing that essentially targets the mostly ignored or avoided sections of the target groups in the society. To sum it up, any marketing campaign that accepts and recognises all the different subgroups of the target audience is commonly known as diversity marketing.
The importance of ethnic advertising in today’s day and age
All the successful and most lead nurturing inclusive and diverse marketing campaigns are meant to break and shatter these advertising norms that highlight the people or groups of people that are underrepresented or misrepresented. Being the most accurate form and representation of marketing, the ethnic advertising campaigns make the target audiences feel seen, heard, understood and recognized. This in turn enables them to have a distinctive faith in your brand as they personally identify themselves with the campaigns, hence your products and/or services.
3 ways to strategize a diverse and ethnic advertising campaign –
There are many ways a multicultural marketing agency can go about strategizing a diverse and ethnic advertising campaign. Let us discuss some tips that we follow at our multicultural marketing agency, MediaMorphosis –
- Appreciate and acknowledge the cultural differences – When it comes to accepting different cultures through the mode of marketing, we immediately think of using different vernacular languages and targeting the ads in a certain way so that culturally populated areas get the first look at these ads. But from our personal experience as over a decade old multicultural marketing agency, we have always felt and observed that the ads that have a cultural inclusion have performed very well.
- Appeal to the Gen Z audience effectively – Many brands and companies are always trying to make their mark in the market, especially in the eyes and minds of the most coveted Gen Z and millennial audience. Ethnic advertising appeals to the Gen Z and millennial audience almost instantly as this audience is more culturally diverse than any other generation that is a part of your target group. By strategizing a multicultural marketing campaign and incorporating diversity and representation in them, you can surely amass a huge target group and build your brand reputation simultaneously.
- Build a culturally diverse team – Since we are one of the leading multicultural marketing agencies in the Eastern America, we are equipped with a team of prodigies and experts who belong to different cultures. Having such a diverse team has always posed an added advantage for us as it has always helped us understand the different diversities better and strategize and shape up ethnic advertising campaigns that are not just culturally appropriate, but also touch the hearts of the target audiences.
Strategizing an ethnic advertising campaign is a huge responsibility, as even the slightest of insensitivity can vanquish the campaign. Hence it is extremely critical to get the campaign right before it is out for the public to see. At MediaMorphosis, we have always aspired to churn out politically correct campaigns that stir up the right emotions, and not trouble for the brand.
