Caribbean brands are actively launching and growing regularly and as they continue to enter the market, digital is at the forefront of the growth strategy. “I decided to focus on Caribbean women in digital, because I saw so many women at the forefront, but lacking the platform to discuss, encourage and create solutions on the gaps of niche multicultural marketing”, says Caribbean Digital Divas founder, Mikelah Rose, “it’s important for us to have these conversations regarding digital so we can continue to build and grow our brands in the Caribbean and the diaspora.”
Branding is more than just artwork, consumers want to know about the company, its story and what the a brand represents. Digital advancements have made it easy to access information, which contributes to how consumers view brands. Owning and actively participating on how you are perceived throughout the consumer decision journey is what active branding is. Caribbean businesses and entrepreneurs need to be at the forefront of digital to remain competitive. Who better to share our niche cultural brands and experiences to the world better than us? This panel discussion will dissect digital branding with respect to the Caribbean demographic.
Join us as we discuss digital branding for Caribbean businesses and how brands and market to the Caribbean diaspora demographic.
Date: Thursday, March 24 Time: 6:00pm-9:00pm EST Location: Livestream Public (Brooklyn, NY 195 Morgan Avenue, Brooklyn, New York, 11237)
