PRINT V.S. ONLINE AUDIENCE We have reevaluate content, adapt and determine the right message and the right platform to effectively reach them. In order to succeed, it’s not enough to communicate a message into our audience through a general platform. We should do two things: (1) understand and respect the audience’s cultural and geographic diversity and (2) precisely identify the target consumer. In other words, the audience between print and online user is different, the content and tone should be too. The biggest mistake that a company can make is to view the Hispanic Audience as homogenous. Hispanics consumers in Utah have different language proficiencies, but they do not live in isolation. That means they are more or less bicultural as they move through their day-to-day. This is reflected in their attitudes, behaviors and receptivity to messaging

WE NEED TO GO DEEPER Though this research is a viable outlet to understand the Hispanic market in Utah, we need to go deeper on research to get more specific usage, behavior and media consumption. Broadcast television, radio, print and outdoors are the traditional means of reaching Spanish-speaking audiences. The news ways to reach them are via digital, mobile and event marketing channels. These are new ways to be effective in reaching younger Hispanics. Contrary to popular belief and according to research findings, second generation of Hispanics in Utah, are heavy users of digital media. There are differences, however, in patterns of digital media consumption. Many Hispanics conduct their online searches in English because there is far less digital content in Spanish. In other words, some online metric may under represent Hispanics. The relative lack of Spanish-language content could be the hidden gold for many brands, as there is less competition in that search space. Mobile is an up-and-coming channel, which is especially effective for reaching younger Hispanics. This high usage of mobile technology represents both a challenge and an opportunity for our company.
