These verticals will be fed with evergreen content and how-to articles. Voxxi.com will be the umbrella site for these verticals. Sanchez adds that to produce more local content is another strategy going forward. "We are thinking about producing more local content to target Hispanics in the top markets of California, New York,, Florida, Texas and Illinois."

Content Syndication

Sanchez thinks that another revenue stream can be found in producing Hispanic specific English-language content and syndicate it to English-language media properties. Voxxi had traffic of 500,000 unique users/month during the last months of 2012.
