A recent Portada survey of media executives in the Hispanic and Latin American sectors indicate that there are optimistic feelings of opportunities in these sectors.
More interesting than the survey results are the opportunities and challenges that the executives outline in their answers. Answers range from online marketing to event-specific promotions (i.e. the World Cup, etc.). And don’t miss the answer given by PowerDirect’s CEO:
“Opportunities: The most opportunities for our business for the remainder of the year likely will be with our retailer clients, as there has been a noted upturn in retail consumer spending. The recession has turned the corner and there is greater consumer confidence. As a result, consumers (including Hispanic ones) are expected to spend more discretionary income on various retail purchases including consumer electronics (think “IPad”). This will create an opportunity for us as our retail clients may spend more money on advertising in general and (hopefully) in our media in particular, since we are very targeted and can reach customers around their stores’ immediate trading areas.”
“Challenges: “The most challenging part of our business during the rest of the year (and beyond) will be to roll out our new brand positioning. “The Science of Front-Door Marketing”. We define this as “Tightly integrated blend of proven direct-response methodologies, leading edge monitoring and campaign metrics.” …Our challenge is to communicate our industry’s benefits to marketing and advertising clients and raise the overall Front-Door Marketing & Media industry’s profile.”
