Are you planning to grow your business in the Koran market? If so, it is good to know the following interesting facts:
According to the World Bank, the internet penetration rate in South Korea is over 96%. And around 91% of the Korean population, in other words, 9 out of 10 Koreans use smartphones. That is why South Korea is considered one of the most digitally connected countries in the World.
South Korea is a unique market because of the strong market share of local digital platforms such as Naver and Google. For example, over 35 million active users, or in other words 70% of the Korean population use Naver and Kakao daily. Naver is the local search engine and portal and Kakao is the local messenger platform.
So, it is very important to build up your brand presence on local digital platforms as well as global platforms to grow your business in the Korean market.

How do your partnerships last with clients?The duration of my partnership depends on the scope of work and desired outcomes.

Whatever the case, our goal is to build strategies that work and help your business grow in South Korea.
What is the first step to work with you?On my first call with my potential partner, I discuss the goals my partners are trying to accomplish and the budget they have in place. From there, I make recommendations for a monthly budget and timeframe so we can begin getting a strategy in place. What’s important to note is that I create custom strategies for each partner based on their unique business. I work hard upfront to set clear expectations for deliverables and results. No matter the budget size, my quality of work remains the same. Schedule 30 minutes call or reach out to me at email@example.com.
