This discussion is not yet present in countries like Canada, Australia or UK but will most likely emerge the years to come. Moreover, multicultural marketing isn’t viewed anymore as beneficial to large brands only. Very often specific, narrow niche products and brands are successfully promoted using multicultural marketing tools and techniques. CONCLUSION #2CONCLUSION #2 Despite TV commercials importance in the advertising industry, its significance is subject to a fierce discussion among multicultural practitioners. Digital channels are viewed as the future of multicultural advertising with Digital leading the way with 68% of the multicultural marketers increasing spend in 2014. 2/3 of the respondents are confident in a spend increase in digital advertising in the following year budget, which is mostly display and social advertising, such as Facebook, but also Twitter and LinkedIn. CONCLUSION #3CONCLUSION #3 Although most of the respondents believe brands benefit from multicultural marketing, the results show that most brands spend less than 20% of their budget on multicultural marketing. According to the study results, US, Canada and UK share a similar multicultural marketing landscape where 1/3 participants spend less than 40% budget on multicultural marketing and 2/3 spend more than 40% of the budget. CONCLUSION #4CONCLUSION #4 Online media seems to be the most underestimated media option as 27% of the multicultural marketers stated to spend only 0-20% of the budget there, only 17% stated to spend 40-60%. If we drill down and look at differences between the company types, we see that Agencies and Multicultural Publisher spend the least amount of media budget online - 20% of the Publishers spend 0-20% of the budget online whereas 19.1% of the Agencies do so. Multicultural brands have an unclear picture on online spend and 17.6% didn’t even know about their budgeted amount for online spend.
