  2. Sandro,
    We specialize in the US Hispanic and multicultural markets, in addition to our outstanding general market work. Are US multicultural markets part of your plan at all?

  3. Hi JM!

    We actually never thought of it. At the current point of our business, it seems too early to narrow our focus to the US Hispanic markets. Nevertheless, this is of course a huge market.

    I wonder, what would be the benefit for an Open Source company to market their product to such specific groups? How would such a PR differ from one for the US market in general? How about multicultural markets in general – where do you see the difference?

    I’d be very interested to hear your feedback!

  4. The US Hispanic market alone is about to hit the $Trillion mark in consumer expenditures any day now. Expenditures in the multicultural market overall are the 5th or 6th largest economy in the world as measured by GNP with the Hispanic market following that fairly closely by itself.
    The Business to Business opportunity with entrepreneurs and companies run by entrepreneurs in these markets is very fertile ground for any tech or web based product with Hispanic women leading the way as entrepreneurial start ups on a national basis in the US.
    It’s simply a must for any US based integrated marketing campaign or program. While we are a smaller independent boutique, our large global agency general market competition is pretty stiff but in Hispanic and multicultural, none of them can touch us in terms of track record of experience and overall value.
    Best,
    JM
