🎉 Supporting Hispanic Heritage Month on Social Media! 🎉
Hispanic Heritage month is a period of time from September 15th to October 15th in the U.S. meant to shine light on the contributions and influence of Hispanic Americans to the history, culture, and achievements of the United States.
Although it’s been celebrated for many years, showing support both on and off social media may feel like new territory to some. It’s important to stay educated on the origins and show authentic support on social media, and here are some good ways to do so.
Plan Ahead and Research
It’s widely known that well-researched content goes a lot further for building trust and credibility between you and your followers. Give yourself ample time to plan and research with the intent of using your platform to amplify the voices of the Hispanic Community.
Uplift Latin-Owned Businesses
If there are certain businesses you’re planning on supporting during Hispanic Heritage month, you can create a graphic or blog post to share with your followers as a helpful starting point. A good tip is to share businesses similar to your own that you know your audience would be interested in!
Share Art that Showcases History
So many artists use social media as a tool to share their art and vision, and a good way to support Hispanic Heritage month is to use your platform to amplify their voices! Remember to share why the work is important and tell your followers to always ask permission and give credit when reposting!
