It’s no secret that all Hispanics are not alike. Hailing from 24 Latin American countries, Hispanics are making a diverse and indelible mark on the U.S. landscape. From music to food, they have infused customs and traditions into the American mainstream. But mainstream marketing to this diverse group is a recipe for failure. New fusion analyses now go beyond traditional age/sex demographics to provide a more accurate method of target marketing. Advertisers cannot reach their goals without winning the Hispanic consumer.
