Multicultural Marketing: How to Effectively Reach Your Target Market

Although effective Marketing can have a strong impact on consumer buying behaviour, when it comes to selling products, many marketers still adopt a “one-size-fits-all” approach instead of appealing to specific target markets.

This is where multicultural marketing can be useful to Brampton businesses, offering a tailored approach for specific demographics.

Here are 4 reasons why multicultural marketing can help your business.

  1.  Canada is becoming increasingly diverse
    One in five Canadians is foreign born, with this number increasing substantially under our current immigration policy.
  2.  Ethnic consumers spend big:
    Last year, Chinese and Indian Canadians spent a combined $104.4 billion annually.
  3. Bramptonians are wealthier
    The average salary in Brampton is $93,917.
  4.  Brampton’s largest population cluster are young, diverse and growing
    This segment is between 30-49 years old, in the prime working age bracket and consistently beats their GTA counterparts in population growth.

Companies that adopt multicultural marketing strategies will generate greater revenue by successfully catering to this demographics’ wants and needs.

Core Creativity: How to Bring Creativity, Innovation and Inspiration to the Work that You Do

Dream Big Brampton Poster David UsherThe Internet has changed everything we know about business and art…and it continues to do so. You can no longer get by because you’re the best in your town, or even in your country. Now, everything has a global audience and products and services need to do more than simply perform — they need to sing.

David Usher understands this. The multi-platinum artist has sold over 1.4 million albums as a solo artist and frontman for the rock band Moist, won countless awards and sold-out venues all over the world, and has worked tirelessly to improve his creative process. He believes that creativity is a learnable skill that anyone can master.

At Dream Big on October 29, David Usher will share his fascinating formula to stimulating creativity through a mix of music, video, and experimentation, and brings to life the core elements needed to build a more dynamic, fulfilling, and innovative creative process at work.

Be More, Learn More, Do More

Other Dream Big events include a Business of the Arts Workshop during the day on October 29, as well as networking and sessions on Get Your Business Up and Running, Tech Talks on The Future of Touch Technology, and more.
