NESTLÉ NIDO PARTNERS WITH BABYCENTER® FOR BRAND'S FIRST-EVER DIGITAL CAMPAIGN TARGETED TO BICULTURAL HISPANIC MOMS IN THE U.S.
Marketing program also extends into BabyCenter® Hispanic site to reach primarily Spanish-speaking Latina Moms in the United States
San Francisco, Calif. (September 1, 2015) — BabyCenter®, the #1 pregnancy and parenting web and mobile destination worldwide, and Nestlé NIDO, the popular early childhood powdered milk brand, are working together to introduce the nutritional drink product to bicultural Hispanic moms in the United States on the U.S. site (www.babycenter.com). In tandem, NIDO is being promoted on our site Espanol (www.espanol.babycenter.com) to reach its longtime core audience of primarily Spanish-speaking Latina moms in the U.S.
Today marks the launch of two key elements of the program:
- Sponsorship of a special Hispanic Families Resource Center on our site U.S., showcasing editorial content that focuses on a range of Hispanic parenting concerns, from a portrait of a bicultural marriage to myths about raising a bilingual child.
- A “Blog de BabyCenter” series of sponsored posts on our site Espanol about picky eating during early childhood, featuring well-known Latina bloggers such as Mayra Elisa Buitrón of Te Cuento un Pokis, Danielly Lara de Acevedo of Un Dulce Hogar, and Victoria Infante of SerMamáLatina.com, as well as NIDO’s own nutritional expert Emily Dauer, MS, RD.
Other aspects of the digital campaign began to roll out earlier, including sponsorship of both the our site U.S. and Hispanic desktop and mobile sites’ Toddler Feeding and Concerns Resource Center, native advertising, email promotions targeted to moms of toddler-age children, and pre-roll advertising across BabyCenter’s video library.
“As the Hispanic population grows in the U.S., a new generation of Latina moms is emerging,” said Priscila Stanton, Marketing Manager, Nestlé NIDO. “Our nutritional milk drink has long been embraced by Hispanic mothers the world over, but we recognize that this new bicultural Latina American mom might need to be introduced to the health benefits that come with feeding your young one NIDO. our site has been a driving force in helping parents navigate through the stages of their child’s development, and we are confident that their trusted voice will help not only increase our brand awareness among our core audience, but expand it to a new, dynamic set of Hispanic moms.”
“While the digital world is important for all moms in the coveted millennial age group, our research has shown that it is particularly so for those who are Hispanic,” said Julie Michaelson, Head of Global Sales, BabyCenter. “Acculturated Latina millennial moms in the U.S. and their Spanish-preferred counterparts are more likely than the average mom to notice ads on desktop and mobile screens. That fact, combined with our strong audience of mothers with toddler-age children, makes BabyCenter’s U.S. and Hispanic sites an ideal environment for NIDO to reach Latina moms at the right place and time.”
The partnership between Nestlé NIDO and our site was initiated by the brand’s media agency, Metavision.
“The partnership between NIDO and our site evolved very naturally,” said Leyda M. Reyes-Rodriguez, Partner, Multicultural Director, Metavision. “For years, our site has been an authority on parenting, and their credibility will give NIDO the right platform in which to connect with today’s Hispanic mom who is balancing a cultural duality. our site is one of the few digital environments where you can actually do that, with their ability to reach Hispanic moms in both English and Spanish. This allows NIDO the flexibility to continue speaking to its core Spanish-speaking consumer, while attracting a new audience of bicultural moms.”
