Online Marketing to the Hispanic Community
Here are a few numbers that illustrate the need to provide a multi-lingual website:
- The U.S. Census Bureau projects the Hispanic population to grow by 57% from 2015 to 2050.
- The Hispanic community will grow from 18% of the U.S. population to 28% in 2050.
- The Hispanic community will be more than twice the size of the African-American community in 2050.
And in some cities, Hispanics represent the majority of the population. Here are several large cities with high concentrations of Hispanics:
- El Paso – 80% hispanic
- Miami – 69%
- San Antonio – 61%
- Anaheim – 52%
- Los Angeles – 48%
- Dallas – 43%
- Phoenix – 42%
- Hartford – 41%
Is it time to embrace this community by having English and Spanish on your website?
Below are several examples of accounting firms who are extending an olive branch by providing a bilingual website.
- IRS Problem Resolution website – Miami FL – English and Spanish
- Fort Lauderdale FL CPA website – entire website converts from English to Spanish (see tool in upper right corner)
- International Tax – Dallas TX – English and Spanish
- International Taxation – Dallas CPA Firm – English and Spanish
