Multicultural Marketing Resources, Inc. is a NYC-based public relations and marketing company representing the nation’s leading experts in marketing to multicultural America, businesses owned by minorities and women as well as corporations with diversity and multicultural advertising news. Now in its seventh year, the 2004-2005 edition is an updated and expanded edition of The Source Book of Multicultural Experts, which was first published in July 1998. This year the company celebrates its 10thAnniversary.
What’s inside: Cross-reference listings guide readers to find a company by business type (e.g. ad agencies, large corporations, professional organizations, seminars, research firms) and by industry area of expertise (e.g. financial services, entertainment, telecommunications.) Market sections are sponsored by leading advertising agencies that help companies reach these markets: Prime Access, Inc. sponsors both the African American and the Gay & Lesbian market sections; the Asian American Market is sponsored by Kang & Lee Advertising; the Hispanic Market is sponsored by Lopez Negrete Communications, Inc. and the Multicultural Market is sponsored by GlobalWorks Group. KSCI-TV returns as a sponsor of the special Asian Media section, as does KTSF-TV (Chinese American Consumer Buying Behavior section) and ABS-CBN International (The Filipino Market section). This year’s Source Book features ads from Interviewing Service of America (ISA), The Cartel Group and Inside the Culture.
Statistical highlights from the expert-written Source Book articles (based on Census 2000 results) include: –Of the $237 billion spent on advertising in the U.S. in 2002, less than 2% of expenditures went to programs directly targeting a consumer population which constitutes almost 30% of the country and commands an annual purchasing power in excess of $1.5 trillion. –5.3 million Black households earn $40,000+ annually. That makes nearly half the African American population middle-class or above. In the general market, that number is 56%. –Latinos are now the nation’s largest minority, making up 13% of the total population. –While the annual median household income of total US is $42,148, and the Caucasian market is $44,226, the annual household income for Asians is $55,521. According to an independent Filipino consumer study conducted by ISA, the annual household income of Filipinos is $59,000. –Asians not only boast the highest household income level of all groups in the U.S., but they also have the highest level of educational attainment (44% holding B.A. degrees or higher) and among the strongest rates of business and home ownership. —The gay consumer marketplace represents some 15 million ethnically diverse consumers with buying power of $450 billion to $500 billion annually.The Census results give corporate America, advertisers, retailers and marketers all the evidence they need to understand the value of developing business plans that attract ethnic consumers.
Journalists can browse listings, categorized by industry and market segment, to find a knowledgeable expert to provide background information or a quote for publication. These experts serve as credible sources, for articles on ethnic communities or multicultural marketing, and to add their voices to year-round coverage of a diverse America.
Marketing executives will find ad agencies, research companies and other experts in multicultural marketing to help them reach these growing populations—minority communities that will represent their majority customer in not just urban areas, but all over the nation. Human resource and purchasing executives will find contacts for vendors and suppliers that are minority- or women-owned businesses.
Many companies listed in The Source Book have also been profiled in Multicultural Marketing News, a bi-monthly newsletter published by Multicultural Marketing Resources, Inc. and in the emailed newsletter, MMRNews. “We decided to publish the first Source Book of Multicultural Experts because of the volume of calls we were getting from reporters seeking diverse sources for stories and from marketing executives looking for experts to help them reach ethnic customers,” said Lisa Skriloff, Publisher, The Source Book of Multicultural Experts and President of Multicultural Marketing Resources, Inc. “The Source Book makes it easy for them to get in touch with these experts. Furthermore, we established the Multicultural Marketing Library & Knowledge Center to help journalists and marketing executives with their tailored queries.”
The Source Book of Multicultural Experts is available for sale for $59.95 + $3.50 shipping (+$5.17 tax for NY state addresses) and is provided free of charge to journalists seeking to expand their source list in general or for a particular article.
