How to Grow your Business by Targeting the Hispanic Demographic

When trying to find new customers for our businesses, we often overlook the most obvious target: our neighbors. And if you live in California, chances are those neighbors are Hispanic.

As announced this June, Latinos are officially the largest ethnic group in California, outnumbering whites. This demographic group is a mixed bag of people who were born in the U.S. and migrated here. Some are second or third generation, others moved a couple of years ago. Their English proficiency varies. Even those who are comfortable speaking English sometimes throw in in a phrase or two in Spanish, which is the language of their parents, a language attached to their roots, idioms that feel like home.

So here´s a tip:

If want to grow your business by targeting the Hispanic demographic group, use Spanish in all of your communications and marketing messages.

Now, we know this is easier said than done.

There are few things that Latinos resent more than companies that want to market to them, but do so with a poor understanding of Spanish language.

Even when customers are not versed in the grammatical rules of the language, they just know when something does not sound quite right. Examples of this include:

  • Forced translations
  • Bad syntax and spelling
  • Actors who speak with an American accent
  • Use of stereotypes
