THE IMPORTANCE OF ETHNIC MARKETING
Ethnic buying power
A study conducted by New California Media reported that ethnic groups prefer to get their news and information from ethnic media outlets. Meaning they prefer to hear about products through channels like First Fridays multimedia platforms, event marketing and print advertisements.
Minnesota ranked #1 among top ten states with the fastest growth rate of black buying power.
