If you look at all the media around you, you will notice that there has in recent times been a change in the type of messages that are being sold. From targeting purely local market, now advertisements, TV shows and movies cater to a more global audience. This complete globalisation of culture, ideas and feelings has happened recently and been catapulted due to the unprecedented rise of the internet world. People all over the world have become a mix of cultures but with distinct differences. Though this intermixing is a great step it has created a huge target market issue with companies and brands. They not only need to cater to the local audience but also their global audience. This is where ethnic marketing comes into the picture.
Ethnic marketing is multi-cultural marketing that is made to meet the likes of more than one market at a time. Many companies have recently been looking into this time of marketing, be it companies that specialise in ethnic marketing in Australia or New York, companies have been trying to reach untapped demographics. In the process of an effective ethnic marketing strategy, it is important that the marketing agency understands the culture, traditions, language and religion of the market they are trying to reach. Thus every type of media that is then created thereafter will respect these differences and also try to integrate the tone and unique quality of the brand into the media seamlessly.
So if you’re company is looking to create a plan for ethnic marketing in Australia or Africa, it is important that they are able to create a plan that will cater to the local audience, which focuses only age old traditions and also to the new global audience that has come about with the new generations and new technology.
