Identity is not just driven by personal heritage, but also by culture, according to a study from NBCUniversal, MAGNA, and Identity. Key findings fromDeconstructing Diversity Today,” which explores the role that brands play in acknowledging and amplifying cultural identification, include:
· It’s crucial that brands recognize the multi-faceted nature of all people, as many don’t currently see themselves represented in media.
· Media serves as an important cultural connection point, by both sparking and satisfying cultural interests.
· Brand involvement in satisfying cultural curiosities is an expectation regardless of race and ethnicity. Particularly, Hispanic and Black audiences responded with feeling strongly, with three-quarters expecting brand involvement.
“The findings revealed today bring to life the fact that for multicultural consumers, their identities are rooted both in their heritage and culture, as well as their interests, their communities, and their desire to learn about cultures that are different from their own,” said Yusuf Chuku, EVP, Client Strategy & Insights, Advertising and Partnerships, NBCUniversal. “Together, as an industry we have both an opportunity and an obligation to create stronger, more authentic connections with all people.”

The US advertising marketplace grew 52% year-over-year in April, though it is 7.4% lower than April 2019, according to Standard Media Index. National TV ad spending increased 14.7% over April 2020, but is down 32.1% vs. April 2019. The US
digital advertising marketplace is a different story – up 82.7% vs. April 2020, and up 31.7% vs. April 2019.

CNN host Chris Cuomo was included in strategy conference calls after his brother, New York Gov.

The Washington Post was first to report on the calls.

Brands with a restricted view of their consumers’ journeys could actually drive customers away from the very destinations where they are most likely to buy, according to a report from audience insights platform DISQO. “X-Ray Specs for Path to Purchase Attribution” maintains that because of the increasing limitations on third-party, identity-based measurement, brands may choose to optimize their consumer engagements based on the first-party data they do have, and send people to their own websites. DISQO’s data shows that the best sales drivers are specific actions on the exact third-party retail marketplaces that are the hardest to measure. “In the face of more data being siloed within media and e-commerce partners and the depreciating viability of cross-platform identifiers like cookies and device IDs, many brands have planned to invest in and lean harder on their owned assets,” said Anne Hunter, VP of Product Marketing at DISQO. “DISQO’s analysis raises a flag of caution on how brands’ first-party activity should be used for campaign optimization.”
