A Changing Landscape

Affluent Consumers +

Shifting Global Demand


Conventional luxury marketing wisdom offers shockingly little insight relevant to digital luxury marketing. In historical studies on affluent and luxury consumer marketing, luxury consumers are typically the hardest-to-reach and lightest users of traditional media; yet, the past 20 years have seen a striking contrast in that luxury consumers are often first-adopters and among the heaviest users of digital media outlets. This presents new opportunities and challenges for brands targeting affluent consumers of luxury products.

Criterion Global’s digital luxury marketing pairs a deep understanding of the luxury consumer with industry-recognized knowledge of the global media market. The combination yields powerful luxury consumer media planning and buying for top luxury brands in both luxury retail and luxury hospitality. With this knowledge base, our clients’ digital luxury marketing efforts are backed by best-in-class international media planning and buying to execute with greater efficiency and impact.
