Mobile

MobileSmartphones are a particularly beloved device among all Hispanics, and Millennials are no exception. Nearly three-fourths of Hispanic Millennials report owning a smartphone, compared with just 34% of the older generation. Why is this? you may wonder.

Facebook

The popular éne•bé•a Facebook profile

Marketers that study successful Spanish-language Facebook pages know that the NBA’s Spanish-language page, entitled éne•bé•a, has over 240,000 fans.  But what is less well known are some of the internal processes and strategies that enable the NBA to connect and engage with Spanish speaking fans on 5 social media platforms.  In October we interviewed the NBA about their social media strategy.

“Social media is a key component to our Hispanic marketing strategy. It allows our fans to engage with our sport and our players on a more personalized level,” explains Saskia Sorrosa, Senior Director of U.S. Hispanic Marketing at the NBA, “While we have éne•bé•a fan pages on five social networking sites, our page on Facebook is the fastest growing to-date.”  It is easy to see that Facebook has been the standout effort as they have grown by roughly 17,000 fans since our interview 3 weeks ago.

We now review each of the 5 forums where the NBA holds a presence focusing on Facebook as it holds the largest fan following.

Facebook – 247,190 fans

Our overall objective was to get in the head of a social media campaign manager for a large non profit to better understand how they manage their campaign. Mr. Herrera explained that traditionally the FSHCC’s outreach efforts included networking events, education programs, and an e-Newsletter, but that lately it has been primarily focused on their social media campaign.

Engaging Spanish Speaking Consumers through Social Media – the March of Dimes Way

After years of fielding thousands of phone calls and emails from Spanish speaking mothers and parents to be, the March of Dimes realized the necessity to expand their outreach efforts. And while reports are now streaming in bearing statistics about how much more active Hispanics are on social media, it seems that the March of Dimes knew all along.

100% Comment response is the goal at NacerSano

The March of Dimes launched its Spanish-language site, nacersano.org, in 2004 as a response to the deficiency of trusted and accurate health information among Spanish-speaking women and their families. In 2007, realizing they needed to have an even bigger presence within the Spanish-speaking community; they kicked off a social media initiative with their Spanish-language blog, located at blog.nacersano.org. This blog enabled the March of Dimes to engage with their consumers in a more organic and informal setting.

Social Media is not new to the March of Dimes. Beverly Robertson, a National Director at the March of Dimes, who heads up social media efforts, has gained approximately 8,000 twitter followers to date (@marchofdimes). Their Facebook page has over 70,000 fans.  But what is quite noticeably innovative & impressive is the …
