We all can agree that social media has changed how we present ourselves to the world, how we interact with others, how we share news, how we promote music, our businesses, how we sell, and how we buy, and more. Platforms like Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram arrived in the world as a simple tool of communication; However, like everything in life, they evolved, and as a bonus, they now can help small business owners generate brand awareness and revenue.
According to the Stanford Latino Entrepreneurship Initiative report, over the past ten years, Latinx business owners grew 34%, in comparison to the 1% for all business owners in the United States. Even though these companies tend to remain smaller, collectively they generated about $470 billion in revenue and employed over 3.2 million people in 2016.
In 2019 these businesses also reported revenue growth of 30% in sectors like manufacturing, construction, trade, transportation, utilities, leisure, hospitality, personal care, maintenance, repair, and education and health services.
