The online Hispanic market is the nation’s fastest growing community. As such, it should be included as one of the key demographics in any successful advertising campaign. It is important to tap into this key Hispanic market now, as it is predicted to keep growing rapidly for the rest of this century.
Defining the Online Hispanic Market
If you are a small to medium sized business desiring to advertise to the online Hispanic market, you are wise, indeed. Up to 89% of the Hispanic population currently searches online frequently. This percentage dramatically overshadows all other racial demographics, making the Hispanic advertising market key to any advertising agency or business looking to grow their sales.
Even with such a large number of potential clients on the World Wide Web, few businesses are effectively marketing to them. The reason is that it can be difficult to reach the Hispanic directly relates to the fact that few businesses and advertising agencies have taken the time to define properly what it is that actually comprises the online Hispanic market.
To be clear, there are five main sub-markets that make up the total online Hispanic market: the U.S., European, Caribbean, Central American and South American Hispanic communities are all part of the 89% that marketers are aiming for. These sub-markets can be further broken down.
Some of these sub-markets, such as second or third generation U.S. Hispanics speak fluent English and your ads and web pages in Spanish can be ineffective with them. However, much of the South American target audience speaks only Spanish and an ad or a web page targeted at them in English will fall flat.
How to Reach the Right Target Market
Once you understand the many variations of the online Hispanic market, you can target your advertisements to speak specifically to each sub-market. This can be achieved by translating the proper text on various online advertisements and websites from English to Spanish, or viceversa.
In addition, it is important to make sure that all of the visual aids used in your advertisements are authentic and relevant to the specific sub-market with which you are interested in connecting. Research thoroughly each sub-market within the broader online Hispanic market that you are attempting to reach, before creating an advertising campaign that is centered on them.
Why Small to Medium Businesses are Getting on Board
Much of the online market is saturated by big businesses that have large teams of professionals to create expensive ad campaigns and to optimize their search engine rankings and drive traffic to their respective websites. The online Hispanic market, however, is largely untapped and leaves a great deal of room for small to medium sized businesses to move in and launch effective ad and web marketing campaigns of their own.
Smaller businesses that utilize effective translation, SEO optimization and website synchronization services are in a good position to win the business of the online Hispanic market. This can serve as a huge boost for businesses that have been hit hard by our trying economic times, by increasing profits and creating new jobs for hard working employees.
