Spanish Language Targeting

Hispanic advertising refers to marketing efforts that target Spanish Speaking populations of consumers. Advertising to Spanish speaking audiences and targeting ads appropriate requires a couple of guidelines.

But is advertising to such a niche linguistic group (ie people who speak Spanish) worth it in the food and wine industry? The Spanish Langage “niche” may be more substantial than you think.

Spanish Targeting in our Ad Server

When it comes to targeting Spanish-speaker consumers with ads, there are two main things to keep in mind:

  • Target people who have “Spanish Language” set in their computer or mobile device, and
  • Target people who are looking at website content that is in Spanish.

If you pair these two targeting methods, you’ll maximize your overall audience reach. When it comes to the latter, in the context of food and wine marketing, you’ll want to target users who are viewing Spanish or Mexican food recipes. This is especially so if your product is included in the ingredient list for the recipe in question.
