Thought Leadership in Latin America

How to creative an effective program to drive your brand’s success

While thought leadership has proven to be an effective strategy in markets like the U.S., Canada and the E.U., it can be particularly interesting in Latin America.

Companies that wish to incorporate thought leadership or content marketing to their Latin America marketing strategies will find a unique opportunity. That’s because, relatively speaking, Latin America is a data desert.

The region has a marked lack of reliable business information, and this is due to several factors, including low investment in data collection, little syndicated (shared) research, weak legal protection for intellectual property, underfunded business associations that can’t afford to produce studies and limited research reports from media outlets.

This means that companies can draw large audiences by sharing their knowledge and insights while at the same time promoting their brands and driving new business. To achieve this, companies must strike a balance between creatively presenting their insights while blending in unobtrusive marketing messages. Thought Leadership in Latin America explains how to achieve this balance.

Why We Created Thought Leadership in Latin America

This whitepaper was created by America Market Intelligence (AMI). While our work is centered on LatAm market research and intelligence—delivering data, insights and analysis to companies operating in Latin America to guide their strategic business decisions—we have successfully used thought leadership to market ourselves, increasing our web traffic by more than 100% and leads by more than 50% (CAGR, 2016-2020).

We have also helped other companies with thought leadership. For several years, our team has powered thought leadership for payments/financial services companies, thought leadership for energy companies, thought leadership for mining companies, thought leadership for consumer goods/services companies, thought leadership for logistics companies and thought leadership for companies in the hospital, healthcare and medical equipment/devices sector. 

These LatAm thought leadership services have often revolved around producing original market research studies for clients and then turning those studies into compelling thought leadership content for Latin America, such as:

  • Blog posts
  • Infographics
  • Whitepapers
  • Webinars

And more. AMI’s work in thought leadership is produced in English, Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese. Beyond producing thought leadership content marketing pieces for companies operating in Latin America, AMI has also marketed the content by helping companies use eblasts, social media, PR and a range of other tactics to attract audiences.

This direct experience in producing engaging content that also drive business for companies is what led us to produce this whitepaper.

Blending Strategy and Execution

Thought Leadership in Latin America

Mapping out why you’re engaging in thought leadership and knowing exactly what you expect to get from it is a crucial step. At the same time, creating compelling thought leadership content is nuanced, and success comes from a combination of factors, such as topic selection, format selection, tone, style, design and more.

  • How to use your customers’ pain points to develop content
