MATA EXPO 2012
“As the ever expanding US Deaf market continues to evolve and its purchasing power increases year after year, understanding its cultural factor, their unique behavior market, and utilizing the adequate mediums and technologies becomes key when targeting this market. Some of the approaches that have been successful include the use of social networking and affiliate marketing”. This event mirrors society’s increased awareness of Deaf people’s media-tech-culture needs.
