When it comes to offering web content, B2B companies often overlook a significant, growing segment of the U.S. economy: Hispanic-owned businesses.
Right now, Hispanic-owned businesses in the U.S. are increasing at more than twice the growth rate of U.S. businesses as a whole. The entrepreneurs who run these companies are usually fluent in Spanish and often prefer to conduct business in Spanish.
Hispanic-owned businesses are increasing at more than twice the growth rate of U.S. businesses as a whole.
Yet online B2B content isn’t translated into Spanish as often as you’d think … which means these powerful, dynamic business owners are being underserved. Savvy B2B businesses can capitalize on this opportunity and grow their domestic reach by offering web content in Spanish.
Hispanic entrepreneurs in the U.S. today share three key traits:
These days, Hispanic business owners are bullish on growing their companies. This is partly why they’re seeing far greater growth compared to the overall U.S. market. They want to expand and see more revenue—and they’re going after what they want.

Their non-Hispanic peers lag behind at 73%.

B2B companies that offer a stellar online experience for Hispanic business owners have a clear advantage over their competitors who aren’t. Keep in mind:
