April Edition of Adweek’s Marketing y Medios Released Today


New York, NY–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–March 19, 2007–The new Marketing y Medios Special Report, out now in select issues of Adweek, Brandweek and Mediaweek, features the accelerated use of integrated product placement or branded entertainment on Hispanic-focused media outlets, a trend commonly seen among general-market media companies.

Hispanic TV, radio and the Internet are actively pursuing this area of business, as are Hispanic agencies such as Houston-based Lopez Negrete Communications, Chicago-based Tapestry and New York-based The Vidal Partnership.

Recent examples include: JCPenny’s first product placement makeover segment on MTV Tr3s in mid-March; the Wal-Mart-sponsored branded entertainment RBD concert in Houston, in partnership with EMI Televisa Music and Univision; the Chevy Concert Series on LATV; Verizon Wireless’ use of branded space on AOL Latino’s “Top 11” countdown show; and the Nissan-sponsored El Reto Final series on Fox Sports en Español, which is enjoying its second year of successful co-branding.

MyM also covers Heineken Premium Light’s new Hispanic campaign. The first spot from the “Descubre lo Delicioso” (Discover Deliciousness) campaign, created by The Vidal Partnership, was released on March 15 on all major Hispanic networks and features Mexican model Elsa Benitez and her Latina friends living in a “delicious” world where Heineken Premium Light is produced.

The beer importer also launched Spanish-language site http://www.heinekenlight.com/espanol, partnering with http://www.Univision.com, http://www.terra.com and http://www.batanga.com. The Billboard Latin Music Awards and Latin Grammys will bear the Heineken Premium Light label and a unique branded event with Azteca América is planned for this summer.

Capitalizing on its exclusive resources, including Hispanic market intelligence from Nielsen Media Research, MyM profiles Los Angeles, the nation’s largest Hispanic DMA. Staying competitive in this market, with 22 Spanish-language radio stations, 17 audited weekly and daily newspapers and eight TV stations and a Hispanic population that is 45 percent Spanish-dominant, requires a niche product, a targeted audience and a local emphasis.

The critical business source for senior-level executives seeking to reach the $900 billion Hispanic market, MyM has expanded its circulation to key general-market targets through monthly distribution as a Special Report to 24,000+ Adweek, Brandweek and Mediaweek readers.

This greatly expanded distribution delivers the top 500 advertising agencies in the U.S.; the 100 largest advertisers in the U.S.; marketers at the top 2,000 U.S. brands; all general-market media buying agencies; as well as the top 100 Hispanic advertisers and the top 50 Hispanic ad agencies.
