Portada Insights Reports are tools that help navigate different disciplines of marketing for both brand marketers and marketing service suppliers. Portada’s new report, ‘Innovative Approaches to Property and Media Rights Evaluation’, sheds light on how brand marketers can better evaluate and implement sponsorships and partnerships.

Portada Insights Reports are tools that help navigate different disciplines of marketing for both brand marketers and marketing service suppliers. Portada’s new report, ‘How Brands Engage U.S. Hispanics: New Segmentation Approaches’, sheds light on how brand marketers can better reach this multicultural segment.
Even though Hispanics account for about 17% of the U.S. population, and in spite of their demonstrated buying power and high indexes of technological adoption, most companies still struggle to come up with appropriate multicultural marketing strategies. The need to implement new, more efficient segmentation approaches to engage and retain the U.S. Hispanic consumer is becoming more pressing.
Consequently, Portada has compiled a series of insights that shed light on how brand marketers can face the new multicultural reality. The new Portada Insights report, titled How Brands Engage U.S. Hispanics: New Segmentation Approaches, provides a fresh perspective on the media advertising expenditures reaching Latinos in the U.S. In addition, it shares the results of research conducted throughout the year at closed doors with the Portada Council System members.
“As the United States get more diverse and more complex from a consumer behavior perspective it has become an imperative for brand marketers to develop new segmentation approaches to target multicultural consumers; particularly the U.S. Hispanic consumer. This Portada Insights report is an example of how our knowledge-sharing and networking platform, the Portada Council System, works on innovative approaches for brands to engage consumers in the multicultural United States,” says Marcos Baer, president of Portada.

What: Portada’s 2019-2020 Panregional Marketing and Media Report explores the influence of certain territories over panregional marketing. These panregional marketing hubs influence the purchase of marketing services ranging from production, PR and creative to paid media. Why it matters: Influence over Panregional Marketing Decision Making in Latin America exceeds US $2 billion. For information on all the issues regarding Panregional Marketing, refer to the complete report by Portada.
According to Portada’s 2019-2020 Panregional Marketing and Media Report, influence over the purchase of panregional marketing services is a wide concept that covers the area of influence marketers have over purchasing decisions “in-country”. The panregional marketer can influence (e.g. veto) in-country marketing services purchases. However, she may not be able to buy those services from her location. Thus, while the decision making is regional, the buying is local. The volume of influenced purchases will always be larger than the one of the actual purchases because the former includes the latter.
We believe that Miami and Mexico City have a larger degree of influence than the other locations. This is because both cities have a substantial amount of media agencies who buy panregionally, as well as a larger amount of panregional marketing headquarters on the brand marketer side.
Influence over Panregional Marketing Decision Making in Latin America exceeds US $ 2 billion.
“Influence” on Purchases by Different Panregional Marketing Hubs
In order to obtain the estimate of overall US $2,100 million of “influence” over decision-making related to panregional marketing purchases in 2016, Portada takes an overall market value for Marketing Services in Latin America of US $40 billion. (For more detailed methodology and assumptions, please buy the report). The below chart shows the dollar volume of marketing services purchases from top panregional marketing hubs, including Miami, Mexico City, New York and others.
