For many Americans, the current political climate is distressing, but not disruptive to their day to day lives. But for the 55 million Hispanics that currently call the United States, home, that isn’t the case. Donald Trump launched his presidential campaign with an attack on Hispanic immigrants. Now that he’s in office, the conversation on immigration has erupted into a maelstrom of ignorance and intolerance. At ThinkNow, we were curious as to how President Trump’s leadership and the resulting chain of events, thus far, has affected U.S.

African-American Gen Z Shoppers Discover Brands Online But Purchase In-Store While Millennials still get the lion’s share of attention, Gen Z, the demographic cohort nipping at the heels of their older siblings, are beginning to take center stage. Known as the Plurals, Founders, or the iGeneration, Gen Z consumers may be setting their own rules, somewhat, but because of their age, still look to their parents and friends to make purchase decisions.
Since we’ve launched our Minority Owned B2B Online Panel, I’ve heard that question a lot. What’s so different about minority-owned businesses that we need a separate panel for them? There’s an assumption that your client doesn’t need to include minority-owned business sample in their research because the standard B2B sample fairly represents the business landscape. That’s simply untrue. Minority-owned businesses certainly share similarities with general market businesses. However, minority business owners face unique challenges that may have a negative impact on their ability to fully scale their businesses.
What to focus on in 2017 for Multicultural Marketing There has been a lot of hand-wringing in the marketing community since the presidential election – especially among multicultural marketers or those targeting constituencies viewed to have ‘lost’ in the recent match-up. When we woke up on November 9th it appeared that the world had shifted and the idea that the U.S. was becoming a more multicultural, diverse, and inclusive nation was somehow invalidated.
There are just over 46 million Hispanic mobile phone users and this number is expected to grow to 51 million by 2020. Of this number, 84% own a smartphone (16% own a feature phone). When asked about their feelings toward their mobile phones, 27% of Hispanics say that they are addicted to them and over 23% prefer using a mobile device to a computer. While the numbers are compelling, insights into the similarities and distinctions across generational (acculturation) levels have been lacking, to date.
Minority-Owned Businesses represent 33% of Small Businesses but are underrepresented in B2B Online Panels. Business-to-consumer sample providers have embraced the importance of including minority samples when conducting studies in the U.S. However, when we look at business-to-business sample providers, the inclusion of minority B2B online sample has yet to experience mainstream adoption. This exclusion is particularly troubling because 33% of small businesses across the U.S. are minority-owned.
Minority Business Sample Is Critical For Representative B2B Projects Minority-owned businesses are growing at a staggering rate in the U.S. They now represent over 33% of small businesses. This should come as no surprise to people in the market research industry as, demographically, the country has been changing for the past several decades. And because of this, as researchers, we know that we should be incorporating Minority Business sample into our sample-only studies.
Recent U.S. Census figures indicate that Hispanic immigration to the U.S. has slowed down considerably since reaching its mid-90’s peak. The 2000 Census was a wake-up call for marketers that hadn’t yet focused their efforts on the Hispanic segment. The U.S. Hispanic population was larger than had been projected and appeared to be on an unstoppable upward trajectory.
3 Ways To Connect With The New U.S. Latino As we begin celebrating Hispanic Heritage month at ThinkNow Research, recent Pew Hispanic data has us thinking about how the changing Hispanic demographic can be reached effectively through their heritage. Two lynchpins of the Hispanic marketing movement – non-acculturated Hispanics and Spanish language media – is going by the wayside. Pew Hispanic notes that net migration is down to new lows and speaking Spanish isn’t necessarily a defining characteristic of being Hispanic.
