Ana Lydia Ochoa, officially launched padma media & marketing (PMM)–a full-service consumer, fashion, beauty & entertainment-communications agency dedicated to reaching urban consumers, with a specialized emphasis in creating targeted programs and initiatives for bilingual U.S. Hispanic consumers.
“Padma media & marketing gives its clients strong expertise in reaching the U.S. Hispanic consumer group through our past experience in managing and creating initiatives at award-winning Hispanic agencies,” explains Ana Lydia Ochoa, founder of padma media & marketing. “Our experience is not limited to reaching U.S. Hispanics with Spanish-only communications programs. We also manage music-driven events, print and broadcast product-placements and celebrity-driven initiatives to reach the younger, hipper, and bilingual urban market,” added Ochoa.
“As the urban market continues to grow, companies and brands must create integrated communications initiatives that overlay personal areas of interest to best reach this consumer group,” states Ochoa. “Padma media & marketing responds to this need by building and managing a specialized team for each client that provides counsel on how to best overlay tactics for the most effective communications initiatives.”
