Australia, the land down under is an amalgamation of cultures from across the world. The population of this great continent-country shows just how successfully Australia has managed to be a cohesive modern immigrant nation. From the Greek to the Vietnamese, the doors of Australia are open to all and ethnic audiences now make up over 28% of the Australian population.
A multi-cultural lifestyle leads to a multi-cultural business community. It is here that as a business you need to understand whether your communication strategy requires a mass approach or a tailored approach.
If you are a brand that requires attention from the masses irrespective of their cultural, social, economic and ethnic background then your entire brand activity will be focused on mass communication.
Tailored communication is an approach a brand uses when the brand has a specific group that they want to target.
The tailored communication approach breaks down the market into market segments. Within these market segments, the brand must identify which one is their target audience. Once the target audience has been identified a complete analysis is done on their psycho-graphic profiles. This questions the consumer’s interests and gives you far more insight on the personality of the target group.
As a brand you begin to understand the media consumption patterns of your end consumers. This includes their subjects of interest, their style of communication and the mediums through which they consume and disseminate their message. Once you have a grasp of this, you find a way to position your brand and communicate its identity through these mediums.
When your brand communications are tailored you can be assured that what you are communicating is definitely reaching your target consumer group. It puts a brand at a better, more defined position in the consumer’s mind.
You can increase the returns on your investment simply by expanding your reach within the correct market segment.
In Australia, diverse migrants from various cultural backgrounds make up a large percentage of the population. They have brought along with them food, lifestyle and cultural practices that have now been absorbed as a part of the mainstream culture of Australia.
When you understand this, you realize that by communicating to the masses there is a possibility that you miss out on some of the immigrant population. Tailoring your communication to suit these ethnic groups helps you access a much larger audience.
But as the population is so diverse, a tremendous amount of research will have to be conducted in order to target all these different segments.
