Over the past few years—and especially in 2020—marketers have had to be increasingly flexible and agile to meet ever-changing consumer demands. In this year’s Nielsen 2021 Annual Marketing Report, we found that marketers across several industries, including technology, travel and tourism, retail and financial services, had to adjust the mix of their marketing spend by as much as 59% in 2020 to adapt to the pandemic. As consumer preferences changed, it created a domino effect that affected business priorities and budgets. To keep pace, marketers had to be creative to activate campaigns with less.

Forty-four percent of U.S. Latinos have never listened to a podcast and 20% have not listened to a podcast in the last month, but a new study finds that 67% of U.S. Latinos who don’t listen to podcasts already listen to spoken word audio.

In this episode of The New Mainstream podcast, Kalil Vicioso, founder of Tiny Hat Consulting, explores the intersectionality of sensory research, social media, and search and how they help marketers build cultural intelligence.

The rising ad dollars also speaks to the notably broad audience that now listens to podcasts. That’s a key shift, particularly as advertisers look to podcasting for new opportunities.

Edelman Trust Barometer special analysis of the Hispanic community reveals that while the U.S. Latinx community is optimistic about their economic future and is more trusting of institutions, they are also deeply concerned about the realities of the past year. They were severely impacted by Covid redundancies, which saw unemployment reach 15 percent among Latinx, the highest of any group, and yet, they remain optimistic about American institutions. This is particularly true for government, as they are the only group to trust government more than business. More than any other audience segment, they expect action from the brands they buy and the employers they work for and are ready to take action themselves if things don’t change.

The Latino Podcast Listener Report 2021 from Edison Research finds that 36% of U.S. Latinos age 18+ (16 million people) have listened to a podcast in the last month, which is a 44% increase over 2020 (25%). This is narrowing the gap with the overall 18+ U.S. population, of whom 40% are monthly podcast listeners. New research shows that this dramatic increase comes from both English-dominant and Spanish-dominant listeners.

"You wanna go where everybody knows your name," according to the famous theme song from the television sitcom Cheers. But according to a new study from NameCoach, work is not as inclusive as Cheers when it comes to pronouncing names correctly. The new study reveals that 44% of respondents had their names mispronounced in an interview, and 41% had their names mispronounced in a customer meeting. The survey of U.S. workers shows that Hispanics were among the most impacted, with 59% having their name mispronounced in an interview.

The Tao of Strategy is not simply about Taoism and strategy. The word “Tao” in the title has a variety of meanings — the Way, “the nature,” the origin of all things — while also connoting Eastern wisdom. Our observations of institutions facing strategic challenges, plus recent research positing strategic intuition as the source of novel strategies, led us to explore how Eastern philosophy complements Western strategy-making.
