  • 31% identified as English-dominant at home and 52% said they use English most or all of the time when online.
  • 94% of respondents said they felt comfortable consuming English content online for at least one common online activity (sharing, shopping, or researching).
  • Despite the high number of search queries in Spanish, members of this audience are comfortable consuming content in English.

What Does This Mean For Marketers?

By using both English and Spanish in your marketing, you can reach a larger audience within the U.S. Hispanic community starting at the beginning of the buyer's journey. Given that they are highly bilingual, it is recommended that marketers develop ads in English and Spanish, even if it leads to a landing page that is in English. Give it a try, then reflect on your results and adjust accordingly.
