The Hispanic Persona Project provides innovative insights for marketers eager to tap the ever-expanding Hispanic population and its use of digital technology - Web, social media, mobile - to connect with family, friends and extended social circles. Hispanic marketers used customer research for decades to create segments that model the complex demographics of the U.S. Hispanic consumer. Similarly, software developers and digital marketers used ethnographic research to create Personas to understand the behavior and motivations of “users” to create optimal user experiences. The session will present the results of a comprehensive primary research study combining Hispanic demographic segmentation with digital ethnographic research in the form of comprehensive digital Personas for the U.S. Hispanic consumer market. Multicultural and digital marketing thought leader José Villa will introduce attendees to 4 Hispanic Personas and facilitate a thoughtful discussion on Hispanic digital behavior.

    • We need to figure out the Hispanic market, but old models don’t work… What are we to do? Use (or create) new models. This is why we undertook the Hispanic Persona Project20
    • Personas 101
    • What are personas?22
    • What is a persona? Profile of an archetypal user Represents the needs of many Based on ethnographic research Emphasize behavior, motivations, and mindsets23
    • A Primer on Personas Invented by and made famous by Alan Cooper’s “The Inmates are Running the Asylum” (1999) Personas have been derided But good personas are based on real data and defined by goals Commonly used in digital advertising and user experience (UX) design But quickly being adopted across the enterprise24
    • How do we create personas? Synthesized from ethnographic interviews Presented as real people with descriptions Behavior patterns Skills Attitudes Environment25
    • Why use personas for the Hispanic market?26
    • Hispanic Personas They focus on behavior, mindsets, and goals, not demographics Provide important texture to plan earned media initiatives, particularly in interactive and two-way social environments27
    • Users instead of consumers28
    • participatory engaged Users instead of consumers interactive utility29
    • participatory broadcast engaged passive Users instead of consumers interactive one-way utility self-serving30
