How it started…

 

I knew that at some point I would be starting my own business, but I didn’t know that at some point I would become a virtual assistant. It kind of just fell into my lap, literally! 

 

In late 2012 an opportunity presented itself and it felt natural especially because of my previous years of experience working in multiple business sectors.

 

One of my many experiences included the opportunity to work for a small construction business where I started as a receptionist and worked my way to office manager in under six months.

 

This business provided me with so many opportunities and I learned so much and thanks to that experience I was able to use those skills in my bilingual virtual assistant (VA) services to my business seemed like the logical path to do.

 

By the time I was fourteen, I knew that the traditional career path wasn’t going to be for me. I also knew that if and when I got married I would want to be my own boss and have that same flexibility my father had while running his business. 

 

When I started this journey, it was not easy, but thanks to my husband who agreed to leave his job and take over the responsibility of managing our household and take care of our son, so mom could build her business and “bring home the bacon”, it was thanks to his support that I’m here today.

 

The first ten years I spent running my corporate business juggling my clients, recruiting, training, and helping entrepreneurs + interpreters start and grow their own businesses, so was not easy.

 

I spend a lot of time talking to new and aspiring entrepreneurs + interpreters speaking to them about the industry as a whole all while managing staff, and corporate client contracts while still being a wife and mommy and it sure was, not easy!

 

But… I love what I do and love to help others.

How to Market to the Hispanic Community

with Faviola ‘the CEO Hustler’ Valencia, always helping you Boss Up and Rise…  

Did you know that the Hispanic population will grow much quicker than any other population?

Did you know that the U.S. Hispanic market is ahead of the curve when it comes to starting and growing their own business? They lead in so many areas, but despite the facts, these consumers are still vastly under-served, and the opportunities to reach them remain largely untapped. 

 

Yes, that is correct! Over the last few decades, the Hispanic/Latino/Mexican population in the U.S. has increased by almost 65%.

 

As a matter of fact, the Hispanic/Latino/Mexican population is the fastest-growing major population group in the U.S. and has surpassed every other minority population.

 

So regardless of the type of business, marketing to the Hispanic Market is a must!

So, what, exactly, should you be doing? To see what’s working (and what’s not), I’ve been looking at different strategies, and here are 3 top tips of things I’ve learned throughout my years in business.

 

  1. Go where they’re at – offsite and onsite; collateral material, online
  2. Give them choices on your services, pricing, and why they should use you over the competition—más opciones; precios, servicios y más maneras de obtener tus servicios.
  3. Marketing in their own language – mercado en su idioma

Things to ponder when marketing to the Hispanic Community

Understand the difference between Hispanic and Latino

“There are many interpretations of how to define Hispanic vs Latino. For the purposes of this blog, I’ll distinguish the two in the following way: Hispanic refers to language and Latino (including Latina and Latino) refer to location Therefore, Hispanic here is defined as one who has a Spanish-speaking origin or ancestry, including Spain.”

 

Here are a few Best Practices to consider when Marketing to the Hispanic Community.

 

  1. Be aware of Region
  2. Understanding “generational” and cultural gaps and creating tailored content and marketing
  3. Understanding and using “Spanglish”, yes our Community understands and utilizes “Spanglish”.
  4. Create a Marketing Plan focusing specifically on the Hispanic Market
  5. Understanding which platforms our Community is frequently using and Market to those platforms

Lastly, be aware of cultural differences and diversity.

When it comes to marketing outreach to our Hispanic Community, it all comes down to being aware of cultural diversity within any country, where multiple ethnicities and a variety of language dialects exist.

 

And although no one is expected to know each dialect and market, there is much benefit and value to thoroughly researching and understanding the various linguistic and cultural differences, as well as the spending patterns within a particular country.”  

 

There are so many ways to do the outreach and one is by hiring or contracting an employee or company who’s aware of the various differences, as well as knowing “the latest research on buying trends, social media trends, etc.”

 

Furthermore, if you’re making the effort to market to the Hispanic Community it’s only fair that you make the effort to understand it, be approachable, reachable and be able to relate with them the way they relate to one another. Know their local culture, language, and customs. Bottom line: Localize, localize, localize.
