22 Factors Leading to the Gains in Asian-American Buying Power Asian-Americans are generally better educated than the average American, and therefore hold many top-level jobs in management, professional or scientific specialties. U.S. Asians are younger and entering the workforce for the first time or advancing in their careers. Nearly all Asians are urbanites – 95% of Asians lived in metro areas in The Asian-American population is growing more rapidly than the total population, mostly because of immigration. 22 Source: University of Georgia Selig Center for Economic Growth, Third Quarter 2009

27 Asian Immigrants Buy Foods that Remind Them of Home Food is naturally tied to culture, and immigrant communities continue to seek out foods they enjoyed in their home countries.

Across all nationalities, 63% of Asian-Americans say they eat a diet of less than 40% American food. 67% rate healthy ingredients/nutrition as a critical or significant factor influencing their purchases. Asian-Americans reported that they established the habit of frequently buying fresh vegetables while in their home country, and believe that frozen or packaged foods arent as healthy and dont taste as good. 27 Source: Marketing to the Emerging Majorities, 2/1/2007 (latest data available)

34 Changes for Asian-American Television Outlets New Tang Dynasty Television, started in 2001, had become a 24-hour a day satellite network that broadcast Western-style news and entertainment in Mandarin and Cantonese to Chinese communities in the U.S. NTDTV lost its satellite feed 7 weeks before the Olympic games and the feed hasnt been restored. Comcast decided not to continue AZN Television in Jan. 2008, citing lack of support from advertisers and cable operators. The Filipino Channel, established in 1994, combines content produced in the U.S. and the Philippines, and is distributed by cable and satellite operators. TVK cable network aggregated programming from 19 Korea- based networks and airs 24 hours a day. 34 Source: The State of the News Media 2009, Pew Project for Excellence in Journalism

35 Asian-American Print Outlets Face Challenges AsianWeek, the English-language newsweekly, published its last edition in early 2009, citing the economy as the reason for the closing. Epoch Times began in NYC as a Chinese-language paper and now has editions in 9 other languages, but its circulation isnt audited. The Sing Tao Daily and the World Journal, both published in Chinese, are not based in the U.S. but have NYC, San Francisco and other city editions. Advertising revenues have slipped at both The Korea Daily and the Korea Times. Filipinas Magazine, a monthly news magazine, experienced a drop- off in the real-estate section that hurt revenues. The National Association of Asian Publishers was formed in March 2008 to reach out to over 400 Asian print, electronic, and online publishers in the U.S. and to focus on market research. 35 Source: The State of the News Media 2009, Pew Project for Excellence in Journalism

36 Asian-American Website Growth Many of the larger Asian-American newspapers added content in English to their websites, reflecting the potential that marketers see in second-generation Asians. Nguoi Viet offers readers the choice between an edition in Vietnamese or one in English. The World Journal has a section for English news, offering different content from the Chinese-language homepage. China Digital Times is run by the journalism school at the Univ. of Calif. and has articles from the mainstream press and blogs from contributors. USAsianWire.com, established in 2006, established a strategic partnership with other ethnic news services and formed the Multicultural Newswire Alliance. 36 Source: The State of the News Media 2009, Pew Project for Excellence in Journalism

38 Asian-Americans Prefer In-Language Ads In a survey by InterTrend Communications Knowledge Center, 80% of respondents consume ethnic media, with print having the highest penetration, followed by TV and radio. The study also revealed that Asians prefer to be reached and targeted through in-language advertising. Only 17% of respondents prefer English-only advertising, with the majority preferring either in- language or bi-lingual advertisements. However, nearly half of Asian-Americans say the language doesnt matter. 38 Source: Asian Reporter, 5/22/07 (latest data available)
