Hispanic Focused Marketing Research: Focus Group Recruitment
If you’ve been following this week’s investigation into the best methods of targeting Hispanic populations with your marketing research, then you are already familiar with the importance of selecting the right market and you’ve learned a little bit about the cultural nuances you need to plan for and address in your focus group sessions.
To wrap up this series of posts, we’ll conclude with a brief discussion on how to adjust your focus group recruitment approach to better reach this important demographic.
No doubt due, in part, to the uncertain political atmosphere surrounding U.S. immigration policies nationwide, marketing research companies have historically been challenged to procure focus group respondents from the Hispanic community.
However, that trend is changing rapidly. As the fastest growing segment of the U.S. population, Latinos are becoming increasingly involved in the political, social and economic landscape. The importance of the opinions, attitudes, beliefs and behaviors of this unique demographic continues to grow in direct response. As a result, communicating with and gathering data from the Hispanic population is therefore of great interest to companies, organizations, governments and other entities.
As the Hispanic impact on everything from consumer spending and public opinion to health care, home ownership and elections increases, it is more important than ever for focus group coordinators and marketing research professionals to take this rapidly growing segment of the population into account when conducting their marketing research projects.
One way of targeting the Hispanic community that focus group recruitment experts have discovered to be especially effective is through online marketing research online communities (MROCs) like focusgroup.com. With Latinos now online in much greater numbers than in the past, reaching this often hard-to-access demographic has become easier than ever via the Internet.
