Retail Research Final

  1. 1. 2010 RETAIL RESEARCH CAPTURES KEY SHOPPING INSIGHTS FROM HISPANIC MOMS Todobebé & Viva la Familia’s latest research reveals where Hispanic moms shop for family purchases, what factors influence their choice of store, and where they prefer to shop most frequently for different product categories. The research captured insights from more than 2,500 Spanish-speaking moms with self- identified interest in mom, pregnancy and parenting content. In addition to the closed end questions, respondents also shared their personal opinions on what they most wanted to see from their retailer of choice. The overarching objective of the study was to provide media partners, retailers and product marketers with greater insights into what real Spanish speaking moms with children 0 to 5 years old in an objective and trusted context say they care about and what choices they make when they are shopping for their families. Why are these insights important for the industry? Product manufactures who have been leaders in co-op and retail marketing for decades using traditional English language general market strategies have been working to build Hispanic and multicultural programs that tie into retail, but there are few case studies and success stories to work from or they have been too small or difficult to measure in terms of incremental products sold. On their side, retailers have found it hard to justify allocating bandwidth to work with product manufacturers and media partners to scale demographic specific programs. What’s different today? The secret is out; Hispanic families alone make up 25% of children 0 to 5 years old and 35 to 55% in several major urban markets. The crisis changed consumer behaviors and put the spotlight on institutionalized marketing programs that were no longer working. As the market emerges from the economic crisis, and retailers, product manufacturers and major broadcasters begin to collaborate to reach multicultural moms, there is great potential and opportunity for industry wide growth: to unlock the bottleneck of the huge but hard to capture market of multicultural moms. The following types of questions answered in this preliminary survey, have the potential to help retailers and product marketers further refine, adapt, and confirm their own efforts to drive store visits and product purchases: What % of moms shops at both Walmart and Target, versus most frequently at one or other? Which products that Walmart carries are now being bought at Club stores and Dollar stores more frequently? In what categories are Pharmacies and Groceries making inroads? What product categories could be growth areas for other retailers that now have national coverage and already have a high % of store traffic from moms, if not on a most frequent basis? How can product manufacturers partner both with retailers and media partners to leverage their brand and media budgets to break the bottleneck and create successful retail driven programs that capture the growth inherent in the Hispanic and multicultural markets?
