It’s Hispanic Heritage Month, and while you don’t need a dedicated month to support the community, it’s a great opportunity to learn from and amplify Hispanic and Latin voices. 

We asked 14 Hispanic and Latin creators, influencers, and entrepreneurs to share their top tips for social media growth.

Whether it's increasing engagement, community-building, or keeping up with trends, they've got you covered.

#1. Lissette Calveiro: Influencer Coach & Content Creator

Lissette is a Latina entrepreneur who specializes in cultivating human connection through social media.

As CEO of Influence With Impact, Lissette teaches others how to create a digital presence and thrive in their business. 

And with over 119K followers across Instagram and TikTok — her community continues to grow.

Lissette’s Top Tip to Create Content Consistently  

  • “A way that I ‘hack’ the system is by pre-planning conversation prompts that will connect with my ideal follower. For example: What are they thinking? What are they searching for? What would make them feel less alone? What would excite them? These questions sit at the core of my content and help me be more consistent.”

#2. Francesca Murray: Travel Expert

Celebrity publicist turned beauty and travel expert, Francesca Murray says that the most important factor to business (and content creation) is staying true to your mission. 

Her blog One Girl One World™️, which empowers women to travel, is a testament to this statement.

For Francesca, it’s all about uplifting, educating, and staying in touch with her community.

Francesca’s Top Tip to Grow As a Content Creator

  • “Putting on an entrepreneurial hat changed the way I manage projects, negotiate with potential clients, and operate overall. It's also made me unafraid to invest. Investing money into courses, eBooks, subscriptions and resources has helped me get further faster. Your future self will always be grateful when you invest in yourself.”

#3. Aimee Kelly: Lifestyle Creator

"A walking Starburst," as she sometimes references herself, Aimee Kelly is a content creator who brings a creative spin to all of her lifestyle projects. 

Her secret? Staying true to her most authentic self, whether it’s her colorful style or bright feed. 

But Aimee also points to another important factor (aka the real key to her success): staying connected to her community. “Followers aren’t anything if you don’t frequently interact with them,” she says.

Aimee’s Top Tip for Interacting With Your Community

  • “There’s a saying: A stranger supports and roots more for you than those who know you. It’s 100% true. You’ll start off as strangers, and little by little your community will become an online family. The best way to communicate with them is to treat them like  family: talk to them, respond to them, and be there for them.”

#4. Andrea Casanova: Celebrity Viral Marketer

Turning brands into influencers is Andrea’s superpower. How does she do it? By creating content intuitively, so that it genuinely resonates with audiences.

“Nowadays people are so focused on adding value to their audience that they forget to enjoy the content creation process — which can impact your videos. When we overly produce and curate content, it loses its original essence,” shares Andrea. 

Andrea’s Top Tips To Keep Up With Social Media Trends

  • “I recommend following the top creators within your niche as well as top creators in adjacent industries. Creators tend to hop on trends faster than traditional users.” 

  • “Pay attention to repeating concepts on your For You page and Explore Page. If you start to see a pattern, tap on the audio and see if there’s any recent activity. Is it picking up momentum?”

  • Don't stress! Not every trend will fit your brand and that's okay.”

Pssst, Later’s TikTok trends resource is updated weekly — full of the latest trends heating up on the feed.

#10. Zeke Novarino: Instagram Mentor

Her creativity knows no limits, and she has successfully built communities across multiple digital channels.  

Belu’s Top Tip for Repurposing Content

  • “Apply the waterfall theory— where you have a core piece of content that can be repurposed across different formats and channels. For example, create a 10-minute evergreen YouTube video. This can then be translated into a podcast episode, used for an Instagram carousel post with key insights, shared on Pinterest with a link to a blog article about it, and packaged in an email marketing campaign.”

#13. Daniela Goicochea: Hospitality Marketing Specialist

Daniela Goicochea is the co-founder of the marketing agency Brandcrops, specializing in hospitality and food product marketing strategy.

Daniela’s Top Tip for Increasing Engagement on Social Media 

  • “Be mindful of how and when you share your content. It makes a big difference when you share a well taken photo of a burger at 1pm when your audience is hungry, versus at 4pm when they’ve already had lunch.”
