Culture defines and shapes consumers, implicitly and explicitly affecting the way we interact with organizations, products and brands. CultureBeat®, C+R Research’s multicultural research division, helps brands understand how different cultures, ethnicities and lifestyles – and the dynamics that intertwine them – influence their consumers. Our team focuses on getting to the core of what drives consumers’ interactions with your brands to help you form long-lasting connections with them.
Our CultureBeat® team is comprised of a group of researchers from diverse cultural and professional backgrounds who bring years of experience and cultural relevance. And our Hispanic research consultancy, LatinoEyes®, brings additional experience and deep understanding of both U.S. and Latino cultures. Our insights are driven by our passion to uncover how culture influences consumers/shoppers and the decisions they make. We leverage our company’s agility to develop the best research approaches, utilizing both traditional and emerging methods. The growing interest from companies and brands to understand multiculturalism and to deeply understand the identities of diverse populations can only be met with a thorough understanding of all cultures, including the LGBTQ+ Community. C+R and its CultureBeat® practice firmly believe that to make a sincere and strong connection with LGBTQ+, a commitment to invest in thoroughly understanding their specific needs as individuals and consumers are paramount. That is why we support our clients through our research expertise in building foundational and strategic insights through the lens of the LGBTQ+ Community. From the generation of foundational insights to strategic custom research, we provide brands with the knowledge they need to deeply know the LGBTQ+ cohort and the intricacies of their motivations, drivers, and challenges. We are to share an informative collection of curated insights and POVs on the LGBTQ+ community through our blogs and CultureBeat Pulse e-zine.
Gay Ad Network is the leading advertising marketplace for connecting advertisers with LGBTQ+ consumers worldwide. We offer a one-stop-shop for LGBTQ+ digital advertising, social media and influencer marketing programs. Our powerful database marketing platform makes it easy for advertisers to reach their intended target – across popular websites, apps, connected TV and social media outlets.
Gay Ad Network has been recognized by INC Magazine as one of the fastest growing private companies in America.
