SABEResPODER – Mobile marketplace and commerce for Hispanic immigrants

iCrowdNewswire - Sep 15, 2016



Mobile marketplace and commerce for Hispanic immigrants




Problem: Over 9M people annually (uniques) go through the U.S. based waiting rooms of the Mexican and El Salvadoran consulates (for Passports, Matricula Identification Cards, etc).

These individuals are proactively looking to establish themselves in the U.S. (passports and identification cards are only necessary for those staying in the U.S.), but are unable to find in-language resources explaining how to access many of the most needed goods & services.

Solution: SABEResPODER (SEP) is a venture-backed Spanish language multimedia company running an independent network of touch points across the U.S. to meet these needs:

  • We’ve made capital expenditures to create an owned network of digital media and flat screen televisions in all of the high-traffic and key U.S. based Mexican & El Salvador consulates
  • We have representatives in locations distributing physical promotional material, collecting survey data, and gathering cell phone information to opt-in members into the SEP mobile network (>300,000 members in approx. 12 months) for customer acquisition
  • We have become the leading out of home digital media and mobile technology company for Spanish-speaking consumers in the U.S.


SABEResPODER has the largest online and offline Spanish speaking U.S. based panel of respondents. The company is present in 25 states across over 50 markets. Our panel is available to answer any questions you might have. We are the leading research organization focused on US Latinos of Mexican, Salvadoran and Guatemalan origin.
