Marketing is one of those things you need to get right the first time, but there are so many factors involved in what the industry considers to be good marketing – one of the biggest factors is demographic and that, in itself, is composed of many other facets. The demographic we are most interested in talking about today is the cultural demographic, specifically that of the Latino and Hispanic population.
Believe it or not, the Latino population has grown with leaps in bounds over the past year. Don’t believe me? Fire up that internet you got through a Texas Internet T1 provider like XO at t1internet.com or the like and see for yourself. They are no longer a minority that the big name brands and companies can afford to overlook when it comes to marketing. But how does a company reach out to a group of people with such a diverse and rich culture? Simple, really. They consult marketing groups who know a thing or two about the Latino culture.

Planet Latino Market Intelligence, Inc. – Miami, FL
WestGroup Research – Phoenix, AZ
Bethart Bilingual Research, Inc. – Miami, FL

Luckily, there are marketing groups in the US with their thumbs firmly pressed on the pulse of what’s hip and happening in the Latino world.

Therefore, it is very important that marketers Read the rest of this entry »

One can never assume that mass marketing will appeal to everyone. This is definitely the case with Latinos. There are more Latinos in the United States than ever before. One cannot assume that Latinos will be compelled to buy products that are not specifically geared towards them.

Like anything, a basic marketing strategy that caters to a more national realm does not always work with those that have significant differences in the market sector. Latinos should be looked at in a different light because the culture is a lot different.
Language is definitely a must, so to target this you should hire more Spanish speakers. Realize that all Hispanic people are not the same. There are some born in Central America, South America, the Caribbean, and even in Europe. They all have a unique culture and speak Read the rest of this entry »
If you are looking to reach a specific target audience, and the Latino audience is whom your company is trying to target, making the ads and campaigns in a way that relates to them and their culture, is the only way to have them look at your products, your sites, services, or whatever it is that your company is looking to sell to that target audience.
