The Hispanic community is not a segment, rather is an undeniable and increasingly influential piece of America’s cultural fabric. It’s increasingly hard to separate from the general market. And that is a good thing. The Hispanic community is a growing part of THE larger community.
While other population “segments” have shrunk or stayed relatively flat, the Hispanic population continues to grow. Between 2010 and 2021, the Hispanic population accounted for nearly 59% of the total population growth in the U.S. Having a Hispanic strategy is no longer a test — it’s a must.
Key Learning Takeaways
- Translating to Spanish is a tactic, not a strategy. “The first thing many companies do is they translate their general advertising message to Spanish.”
- Cultural relevance matters. “There are many cultural nuances within the Hispanic community that go beyond dialects.”
- The Hispanic target is not a homogeneous group. “Fifty-four percent of the current Hispanic community is foreign-born.”
