The Hispanic Market

As the US Hispanic population continues to grow, more Hispanic consumers are becoming responsible for more market share than ever before, including in the automotive industry. In 2014, Hispanic buyers delivered 96 percent of Ford Motor Company’s retail sales growth. Are you connecting with this audience on social networks, specifically Facebook?

According to Ipsos, 71 percent of US Hispanics use Facebook every day and 80 percent of US Hispanics prefer ads that incorporate Spanish messaging. Your dealership needs to engage this growing group of customers in a language and with topics that resonate with them.
