As a US business owner, you have to think big. When it comes to customers, you should not narrow down your target but instead broaden it. In such a multicultural country, there is one demographic that is making a difference: the Hispanic community.

🤔Did you know? As of 2022, the Hispanic demographic is the second-largest ethnic group in the United States

Likewise, their purchasing power has surpassed $3.2 trillion. Through their growing numbers, active engagement in the labor market, and rising levels of education, Hispanics are playing a pivotal role in reshaping the economic landscape of the United States.

Despite these astonishing numbers, the majority of businesses fail (or miss) marketing in Spanish.
