AAA Arizona’s Path to Engaging the Hispanic Market

April 14, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

$20 - $35

Hispanic purchasing power is expected to reach $1.7 Trillion by the year 2017. If your company currently does not market to the Hispanic community, now is the time to examine this segment of the market as a means to grow your business. The Hispanic Market is not only important to AAA Arizona, it is important to Arizona businesses.

Monique PrehodaWith Hispanics making up more than 30 percent of the Arizona population and Hispanics being underrepresented in the total AAA membership base, AAA launched an initiative to acquire more Hispanic members. After completing research and partnering with a local multicultural agency to develop a strategy and plan, their Hispanic Market Initiative began in April 2015.

After only ten months of execution, they are seeing solid results from an integrated marketing and community relations plan, and they increased acquisition of the Hispanic market by 12.1%. In addition, the testing phase yielded great insights to help them optimize their tactics as they move forward.

Join us on Thursday, April 14th to learn about:

  • The importance of the Hispanic market to AAA Arizona and Arizona businesses
  • The impact of qualitative and quantitative research on developing a marketing strategy
  • Key tactics to reach a Hispanic market
  • The importance of digital in reaching the Hispanic market
