UMG is a full-service marketing and advertising consulting firm in Greenville, SC. The company’s client base is wide-ranging, but its specialty is in the Hispanic Market.

UMG understands these complex details. The company is uniquely positioned and in tune with what makes the Hispanic market react to a marketing campaign.

Through our relationship with Influential, we can leverage the accelerated growth of the Hispanic community and create a space where we will see more engagement through meaningful, diverse content.”
This partnership between Influential and UMG comes at an important time when the social media use of the Hispanic audience has never been higher. According to eMarketer, 79% of U.S. Hispanic adults have spent an additional two or more hours on social media than they did prior to the pandemic. Combined with U.S. Hispanics’ annual buying power expected to exceed $2.5 trillion in the next two years, it is vital to create diverse content to engage with Hispanic audiences.
