The Hispanic Public Relations Association (HPRA), Word of Mouth Marketing Association (WOMMA) and the Hispanic PR Blog are launching a series of free national monthly webinars about Hispanic social media marketing best practices starting this month.

Co-sponsored by PR Newswire, the Hispanic Social Media Insights Webinars series will feature an all-star line up of industry speakers and are specifically geared to brand managers at corporations, government and non-profit agencies.

“These webinars are the promised follow up to the popular Hispanic Social Media Guide we released this summer and are just the tip of the iceberg of what we have in store for the industry in the coming weeks,” said Manny Ruiz, publisher of the Hispanic PR Blog and organizer of the annual Hispanic PR & Social Media Conference slated for early 2011.

The Hispanic Social Media Insights series kicks off September 29 from 1 to 2 p.m. ET with “How to Build Compelling Corporate Facebook Fan Pages for U.S. Hispanics.” Confirmed speakers include Ada Luz Restrepo, Analyst, Spanish User Operations at Facebook, Lance Rios, Founder of the popular Being Latino Facebook Fan Page and a Fortune 500 marketing executive that is to be announced.  Ruiz will moderate the session.  (To register for this webinar go to https://www3.gotomeeting.com/register/574153894).

Upcoming webinars also include:

All the webinars are complemented by the official 2010-2011 U.S. Hispanic Social Media Guide, the ultimate “How To” guide for Hispanic social media marketers released earlier this summer.  The attractive, 56-page guide was produced by the Hispanic PR Blog in partnership with HPRA and the Word of Mouth Marketing Association (WOMMA).  To get a copy of the guide go to www.hispanicprblog.com/hispanicize.  A Facebook Fan is also available at www.facebook.com/hprblog, the premier Facebook page for PR and social media pros focused on Hispanic marketing.
