BASKING RIDGE, N.J., May 24, 2011 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Verizon today introduced www.EnciendeteFios.com, a fully interactive website that brings to life the advantages of FiOS – the nation’s fastest and most reliable Internet service offered on a mass scale, advanced TV and home phone services – in a unique and entertaining fashion.

“We wanted to create a unique online destination that provides pertinent information to Hispanic consumers,” said Oscar Madrid, director of multicultural marketing at Verizon. “Providing Spanish-speaking consumers with in-language information is important, but merely translating our existing content to Spanish was not enough. In order to fully connect with this important base of consumers, we needed to create an educational and informational site that would resonate with them at a functional and emotional level.

“This new website demonstrates Verizon’s commitment to delivering a premium online experience for our Hispanic consumers, and our promise to offer a superior entertainment experience,” said Madrid.

The website has been designed to enhance the dialogue with Hispanics in a culturally relevant way. Created to be user-friendly in order to heighten the learning experience, the website brings to life the relevance of the services that Verizon FiOS offers its customers in an interactive fashion. In order to complement www.verizon.com/espanol, this site enables a virtual hands-on interactive experience, and demonstrates how the FiOS experience can be relevant in enhancing their lifestyle.

The new Verizon website allows consumers to enjoy all of its content in English or Spanish, without it affecting the quality of the online experience. With one click, consumers can read about interactive personas, testimonials and other rich content in their language of choice.

Perhaps the most humanizing touch of www.EnciendeteFios.com is the customer portrayals and testimonials that the site contains. Upon entering the site, visitors are introduced to four distinct, yet relatable, consumers who live in some of the most diverse markets in the nation that are served by FiOS and who illustrate numerous ways consumers use FiOS services to simplify their lives and stay connected to what they love.

Click on the Opiniones tab to get a real taste of actual FiOS customer stories. Here, the testimonials given (both in Spanish and English), paint the truest picture of what FiOS can do for consumers. Each one introduces the viewer to a real person or couple as they detail who they are, where they’re from, and how FiOS has impacted their lives.

The latest market research has shown that Hispanics are becoming increasingly tech-savvy. More and more consumers are increasingly relying on their home broadband connection as the number of connected devices and apps in the home grows, and Verizon’s all-fiber-optic FiOS has the bandwidth to keep pace with customers’ bandwidth needs today and in the future.

Enciendete FiOS creates a personalized user experience that simplifies the decision process, guiding the consumer with intuitive tools, including an advisor, that allows them to determine the bundled package that best suits their wants and needs.

Lopez Negrete Communications, Inc., the Hispanic advertising agency of record for Verizon residential services, helped build and launch the new website.
