The general market for luxury goods has become stagnant. Given the new economic reality of the early 21st Centuryanot to mention the all-important new demographics of the new centuryaitas bad business to continue to rely on luxuryas traditional customer base to support sales, or on tired marketing strategies and tactics. In Black is the New Green authors Burnett and Hoffman show readers how to follow in the footsteps laid down by brands such as Gucci, HSBC, Sony Electronics, and Aston Martin, amongst others, to become successful in a segment corporations canat afford to overlook if growth is the objective. The total number of affluent ethnic households in the United States in now estimated at over 1.3 million, the buying power of affluent African Americans (referred to as AAAas in this book) is currently $87.3 billion. It would be foolish in the extreme not to tap into this rich buying segment, yet that is exactly what the marketing arms of companies do all too frequently. Sometimes this is because the executives in a particular marketing department are unaware of the potential that exists within this segment, sometimes itas because they are baffled about how to reach out to this segment and sometimes itas because they think they lack the money or resources to make a credible effort at adding a whole new segment. And sometimes, unfortunately, itas because they have reached out in the past but their efforts were unappealing to the AAA audience. Black is the New Green will show you how to attract this lucrative market and create brand loyalty and product bonding among affluent African Americans in an affordable and measurable way. Up until now, the affluent African American market has been underappreciated and overlooked. But with a sitting African American presidentathe time is now to tap into this market and to embrace a constituency that will have a lasting effect on your bottom line. http://www.blackisthenewgreenthebook.comTopromote its four luxury hybrid modelsathe RX 450h, GS 450h, LS600hLand the HS 250ha Lexus engaged the African ... had this toadd: aThekeyto Lexusa#39; success isthat we always listentoour customers and provide them with the cars andanbsp;...
