Detailed Analysis

Increasing socioeconomic diversity

Consumers are increasingly diverse in terms of socioeconomic backgrounds and businesses need to reflect that in their brand messaging. “The growing diversity of the consumer market can no longer be ignored. A report from McKinsey & Company shows that companies which emphasize ethnic and cultural diversity at the top are 33% more likely to have above-average profitability”. Thus, businesses should adjust their marketing strategies to be more inclusive and reflective of this trend.

Inclusion leads to brand loyalty

Consumers often choose to support brands that make efforts to showcase diversity and inclusivity in their marketing narratives. Brands that incorporate diversity in their marketing narratives are not just gaining a wider audience, but are attracting brand loyal customers. Consumers feel more understood and respected when they see different cultures, ethnicities, and identities being represented in a brand’s marketing campaigns.

Diverse Workforce Contributes to Better Marketing

A diverse group of employees bring their unique perspectives to the table, helping companies market products more sensitively and effectively. A research study conducted by Boston Consulting Group revealed that diverse companies produce 19% more revenue due to innovation. Having a diverse workforce allows for fresh and varied perspectives, which contributes to creating more sensitive and efficient marketing strategies.

Challenges in Implementing Diversity

Despite the benefits, some businesses struggle to emphasize diversity as it requires shifts in company culture and continuous learning. While the importance of diversity cannot be overstated, organizations often struggle with actual implementation. This requires a major shift in company culture and continuous learning, which could be challenging, but is ultimately rewarding.
