Telemundo looking for Gold in Summer Olympics

Marketing y Medios has a good article profiling some large insurers that are looking at the Olympics as a great opportunity to reach Latinos.

Telemundo will cover the Olympics from Aug. 6 - Aug. 24.

Here's what Target's director of multicultural marketing Greg Cunningham -- who clearly gets it -- had to say in the article:
"The Olympics is a world stage and an opportunity in media -- and there are only a few -- when you are potentially going to get the whole family in front of the TV in a multigenerational opportunity. When you can reach people in those really special moments, and understand the bond that Hispanics family have, and understand that 'if you speak to me in a relevant way during this time, it will make me perceive you and your brand very differently."

Ah! So that's why my wife yells at me only in Spanish!

Fortunately my wife says she has better things to do that read my rants so I'm confident she won't read my headline :-)

A group from Baruch College and University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee studied several groups of bilingual Hispanic women with varying degrees of cultural identification with Latino and Anglo cultures and found dramatic shifts in frame-shifting in women who identified with both, according to an article on Discovery Channel Canada.

Furthermore, the article says, these women also switched frames more quickly and easily than bilingual women who were monoculturals. This was especially evident when it came to their self-perception of assertiveness; bicultural women classified themselves as more assertive when they spoke Spanish than when they spoke English.
