Successful excursions in marketing often arise as a result of an orchestrated collision of research, relevance, information, and creative genius. A winning campaign regardless of the medium, purpose, and audience works because of one simple truth.

It matters.

When an idea strikes a chord something tremendous happens. The right idea presented at the right time and place is like a key. It unlocks something magical. It's amazing what happens when you give the people what they want.

That's the ultimate end game.

Ideas that matter.

For everyone involved in marketing to Latinos, what matters is often a construct of culture.
Culture refers to the cumulative deposit of knowledge, experience, beliefs, values, attitudes, meanings, hierarchies, religion, notions of time, roles, spatial relations, concepts of the universe, and material objects and possessions acquired by a group of people in the course of generations through individual and group striving.
To understand the ebb and flow of biculturalism is to explore the arena of motive, values, and passion. The right Latino engagement strategy is one that speaks to the cultural nuances of an audience and drives relevance across technology, geography, and language.

Enter the dynamics of narrative and brand story.

An integrated marketing campaign has a chance to thrive when it speaks to the interests and ideals of an audience and has a chance to feed off one or even several big ideas.

Tools like strategic positioning statements and venn diagrams can help uncover both the rational and emotional factors of a product or service's existence helping marketers move closer to discovering the aha moment of truth that only the champions of branding are made of.

Uncover ideas and ideals that matter.
