Motivate Inc.the leading specialized insights and media partner for reaching Multicultural, Youth and LGBTQ segments, announces the release of its Asian Path-to-Purchase study. Conducted in partnership with New American Dimensions, the report delivers signature findings on consumer behaviors, media usage and brand affinities. Asian Americans are of the highest-income, best-educated and fastest-growing racial group in the U.S. While the Asian consumer represents a great opportunity for brands, there are major marketing obstacles stemming from consumer segment confusion and lack of data insights. Motivate’s Asian Path-to-Purchase Study aims to dissolve some of the market barriers by shedding light on major hot topics including media consumption, language preferences, device usage and more.

“From a Fortune 500 perspective, we receive frequent inquiries from C-suite executives trying to better understand the Asian-American consumer opportunity, and in concert, how to put actionable, measurable plans in place against the segment,” said Trevor Hansen, CEO, Motivate. “Unfortunately, besides first-party data, there is little in the way of referenceable research, syndicated or other available on this very complex market. The Motivate team is very excited to bring these insights forward to help agency and client partners grow their brands within the Asian community.”
