How much do you know about Latinas online habits? This Social Media and Buzz study unveils key purchase + influence patterns to marketing success.
One does not simply ignore Latino women – Aragorn
63% of the women interviewed use Orkut, Facebook, Twitter and other social media networks to search for information before purchasing a product or service. Books, magazines and electronics are the categories consulted the most.
Latinas consult with their social network before they make a purchase
Women now represent the majority of users of social networks in the world, a trend that continues to grow. And they do not use these networks just to communicate with friends and family, read on subjects of interest or for academic or professional purposes. Every day more women search for information on products and services on their social networks.
A survey of 3,274 women from 18 to 60 years old, residents of Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, and U.S. Latinas, conducted by Sophia Mind, a market intelligence company, indicates that 63% of these women use social media to gather information before making a purchase, and for 70% of them the probability of purchasing a major product or service increases if it is recommended by a social media friend.
Electronics are the products most consulted by them – 66% consider important to exchange information on them on the web before committing to their purchase. Forty eight per center do the same with magazines and books; 47 %, with songs; 45 %, with movies and products related to tourism; and 42 % with cosmetics.
Jewelry is an exception, the great majority of Latinas (89 %) believes this is a personal choice.
Social Media and Buzz Influence
Brazilians (66 %) and latin americans (56 %) are the greatest contributors and generators of buzz influence as they share most to their experiences in social media recommending or not a product or service. In all of the countries surveyed the rate of positive comments was greater than the negative. Another similarity amongst the women in these countries is that 50% of them may give up a purchase if a product or service is not well rated in social media networks.
Social Media and Buzz influence regarding Latina purchasing decisions
In Argentina, the United States and Mexico, 87% of women cite Facebook as the most influential. And 25% of them say they have already made purchases based on comments or indications of friends of that social network. Twitter appears in second place, with a 17% buzz influence. Advertising also has greater influence on Facebook: 18% of the respondents have already purchased products based on messages or announcements viewed on this channel. Also, on Facebook, one in five women have already withdrawn from making a purchase due to negative buzz about a product or service.
In Brazil, Orkut remains as the social network with greater penetration amongst women: 85 %. Sonic, Twitter and Facebook are tied in second place, with approximately 21 %. Twenty-nine percent of brazilians have made purchases in Orkut based on announcements or messages of companies and 21% are no longer using some products because of negative comments.

Campaign to Include Musical Video Vignettes, Performed by Television Personality and Singer Minerva Borjas
Clorox Launches Hispanic Social Media Campaign “Hogar + Sanito en Tres Pasitos” Campaign Encouraging Hispanic Families to Have a Healthier Home.
To help Hispanic families kick-off their new year, The Clorox Company, in partnership with Spanish TV network Vme, has launched a Hispanic Social Media campaign to encourage germ prevention,
Clorox Latino Facebook Campaign
entitled “Hogar + Sanito en Tres Pasitos.” The program aims to help families create a healthier home by following three simple steps: receiving a flu shot, washing their hands and disinfecting surfaces. The campaign also includes a specially commissioned song called “Hogar + Sanito en Tres Pasitos”, composed by children’s music author, Suni Paz and performed by Vme’s TuBebe host, Minerva Borjas, as part of two musical video vignettes featuring Minerva and the characters from the famous Spanish cartoon series, “Las Tres Mellizas Bebes.” The vignettes are airing on Vme and Clorox® Latino’s Facebook page from now through March 2012.
“We thought the ‘Hogar + Sanito en Tres Pasitos’ song would be a unique and fun way for parents to entertain and teach their kids how to help keep the flu and cold viruses away,” said Jay Stilwell, marketing manager at The Clorox Company. “With this educational campaign, we hope to reach millions of Hispanic families as part of Clorox’s commitment to help create a healthier home for families across the country.”
In addition to recommending the flu vaccine and the use of disinfecting products, such as Clorox® Disinfecting Wipes, the campaign acknowledges that washing your hands frequently and for at least 20 seconds, can significantly reduce the spread of the flu virus.
The Clorox “Hogar + Sanito en Tres Pasitos” vignettes feature Venezuelan singer, Minerva Borjas, who is already known in the parenting world thanks to her TV show TuBebe, where she offers practical tips and helpful information for current, soon-to-be and new parents.
“I’m very excited to be part of this great initiative and share the ‘Hogar + Sanito en Tres Pasitos’ song with the little ones,” said Minerva Borjas. “As a mother, I know that our children’s health is our top priority, so what a better way to teach them to stay away from the flu than by singing and miming the key prevention steps together.”
Hispanic Social Media Campaign for Clorox
As part of the launch of the Hispanic social media campaign, Minerva will make a surprise appearance at an elementary school in Miami to teach children the new song and the importance of following the tres pasitos to maintain a healthy home.
The “Hogar + Sanito en Tres Pasitos” campaign will run through the end of the flu season in March. For more information and to see the vignettes, please visit www.hogarmassanito.com or go to the Clorox® Latino Facebook page at www.facebook.com/cloroxlatino.

Facebook is not always the solution when planning or executing a Social Media campaign, especially when the industry is Travel and Tourism. TripAdvisor, the New York Times Travel section, Driftr.com, TripSay, ThornTree, and many other Social Media sites would be a more suitable choice.
50 million reviews and opinions on TripAdvisor, the world’s largest Travel site, would definitely back this up. TripAdvisor has doubled its content in two years and features more user-generated content than any other Travel website.

Why Marketers Should Care About Reaching Latina Bloggers
Even with the well-documented explosion of the Hispanic market, Internet sources like Technorati, which by 2008 was indexing 112.8 million blogs, have never touched upon the topic of Latinas and blogging. With the release of the Latinos in Social Media’s Latina Blogger Survey, though, it is now official: Latina bloggers are increasing their numbers and spreading throughout the blogosphere.
The intrinsic characteristics of blogging, where the private becomes public and communities rally together around common interests, make it the perfect platform for Latinas to voice life from their viewpoint … in in two languages, no less!
Beyond the obviously good news that these bloggers now provide us with a new outlet for furthering our brands’ messages—what with ever-shrinking minority-outreach budgets—the implications of this Latina blogger explosion for PR and marketing professionals are many:
• In Latino culture, where word-of-mouth and group interaction are second-nature, the trustworthiness of a blog post wrapped in a culturally relevant package can certainly influence the value of a brand in the eyes of their thousands of followers.
• These bloggers provide us with micro-niche audiences and more targeted outlets for furthering our brands’ messages. Stories published and promoted online have the potential to reach a greater number of people in very little time. In this context, a Latina blogger outreach program puts us in an ideal position to secure widespread coverage for our clients.
• Most Latinas blog in English, followed closely by Spanish and peppered with Spanglish, which means that their potential reach is amplified. Their choice of language in this case may be more about connecting with their readership, not necessarily a reflection of the language they speak more fluently. The key is listening and doing your homework in order to find the perfect fit.
• Latina bloggers are actively engaged in social media, and they tend to belong to tight, supportive communities online. Besides the fact that your message will reach well beyond the scope of the blog, this also means that other influencers in their communities will help disseminate it.
• Their culture infuses their writing but does not rule it. Contrary to expectations, Latinas blog about numerous subjects, which opens up possibilities for different types of brand engagement.
• These Latinas are at the epicenter of merging worlds: between traditional and modern roles, between English and Spanish, between American and Latino cultures. They will bring a fresh perspective to your message, one that most closely reflects the Latina experience in the US.
• Brand credibility: With consumers now doing research online and even generating their own content, consumers are less likely to believe a product review that blatantly comes from a sponsorship.
• Relative lack of control over the message: Know that consumers will be getting and act on impressions about your brand from less than perfect sources. Bloggers are not necessarily a self-regulating bunch, at least not yet. The fact that they can and will write whatever they want in their blog might create public relations issues. Just be sure to monitor their blogs, so you can address any issues or comments and give your official brand perspective, if need be.
• Saturation: With the fast growth rate of this segment, the Latina blogger market is likely to become saturated fast, which means their individual reach will, at some point and with few exceptions, start to diminish. This being a relatively young blogging community also means that the time to reach out to them is now.
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is cracking down on so-called “Blogola” by regulating blogger/advertiser relationships. The rules were updated December 2009.
The new rules include the fact that now bloggers must disclose material connections with a brand: whether they are receiving payment or free products and the kind of relationship they have with the company. What’s more, now both the brand and the blogger are subject to liability for misleading or unsubstantiated representations made. This means that the potential of a company being held responsible for approving unfounded claims—not rare in this realm—is a very real one. While the FTC regulations are beginning to be applied, the blogger outreach game is still an evolving one. The main things to keep in mind seem to be transparency, clear objectives and open ears: a willingness to listen and adjust, if need be.
Though a blogging campaign may be a godsend of great, relatively inexpensive publicity, remember that it is also —or should be—part of a larger communications/PR plan. Make sure all other elements of the campaign support your Latina blogging outreach and vice versa. If you do it right, Latina blogueras will rally behind your efforts with the same pasión they pour into their Web writing every day.
