Target Audience • Quick Facts • Estimated 52 million Hispanics in the United States • 10.7 million Hispanic family households in the United States • Are tech-savvy and typically use the internet as their primary source for information • 27% spend 6+ hours on social media sites • Like to incorporate traditional customs with Americanized ones • Spend an average 8.3 hours per week watching television and 8.7 hours per week online

  5. 5. Highest Populated Hispanic Cities
  6. 6. Target Audience • For our research, we concluded that US Hispanics are the fastest growing consumer in America. They are very social who use the Internet as their primary source of information. US Hispanics believe in their cultural traditions when it comes to family, relationships, and marriage. When it comes to leisure, pleasure, and entertainment, Hispanics are more Americanized. They prefer to mix the two customs together incorporating both family and American entertainment together. • Our campaign will do just that. We plan to have a Minion Expedition which will travel across the nation stopping at the highest Hispanic populated cities. The expedition will incorporate games, food, music, and fun. We will team up with local food trucks, a up-and-coming trend in the U.S. to “minionze” their menus. We will promote on television first, creating a buzz in the Hispanic community to go online to find out more information on the expedition. We will promote at local Wal-Mart’s, since shopping is a huge part of the Hispanic community and will also promote within the theaters prior to the release of Despicable Me 2 because Hispanics enjoy going to the movie theaters as a family. We believe that incorporating family and fun together, will directly target our specific demographic and create a buzz around the sequel being released on July 3rd, 2013.

  9. 9. Building Awareness • Television • We will run our commercial on both English and Spanish networks. The commercial is themed around the minions disappearing from Gru’s Lab. At the end of the commercial, we will introduce the Minion Expedition as the place to find minions. This will be the initial promotion that will influence our target audience to go online to find out more information. • Out of Home • Our out-of-home media will be our subway media. In subways in New York, we will have a projector in the subway car that will project our commercial and our promotional ads about the Minion Expedition and Despicable Me 2. This will be effective because our target audience spends a lot of time and money on transportation. • Radio • Transportation is important among our target audience but not all of the cities we are promoting in have subways. By promoting our campaign on the radio, we will reach our target audience in all aspects of transportation. We will promote on these local radio stations: • Los Angeles  Miami 97.9 FM, 96.3 WCMQ-FM • Chicago  Phoenix WTMX-FM, WBBM-AM, WUSN-FM, WVAZ-FM 95.1 FM, 88.3 FM • New York  Houston 97.9 FM, 93.1 102.9 FM, 101 FM  Dallas 99.1 FM, 107.1 FM
