Peter P. Snitzer Jr., CEO at Conffianz, explains how social media is helping the beauty company grow, during Portada's 11th Annual Multicultural Advertising and Media Conference.

On September 14, Peter P. Snitzer Jr., CEO, Conffianz participated on the Multicultural Shoppers panel, where he explained how the Latina consumer is practically why their beauty brand exists. "We are all about empowering Latinas," said Snitzer Jr. during an interview.

Given that Conffianz' target is older women, the company has been using traditional outlets like TV as their marketing platforms. But, as Snitzer Jr. explains, Facebook has also become a great tool. Recently, the brand launched a campaign that had user-generated content. "We had a fantastic result. You really can't compete with user-generated testimonials," he explained.

We had a fantastic result. You really can't compete with user-generated testimonials.

In addition, Conffianz has been working with some business partners to grow both the brand and their commitment to the Latino community. To find out who these allies are, watch the full interview below.
