What makes us special
We are Internet pioneers since the 1990s, and programmers since the 1980s. We were there even before the Internet. Remember CompuServe and BBS (the “grandfather” of social networks)? We have developed apps since the 1980s, and were pioneers in developing interactive content, and in social media since the Friendster days (2002). We have been developing web and cybersecurity solutions since commercial Internet started in 1996 (including our NetJanus email security appliance on BSD UNIX), and sysadmin for client e-commerce and web properties.
Unlike some practitioners from a pure journalism background, our team has strong journalism PLUS field sales/marketing and technical backgrounds, making us extremely experienced in generating sales-friendly editorial content.
Our twinned paradigm is “Search+Social™” to help you get FOUND through search engines, and engaged on “Social” ecosystems of Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Dark Social (WhatsApp), etc.
Our digital expertise is recognized, with the Most Innovative PR Agency of the Year (Bronze Stevie®), Digital PR Agency of the Year (honorable mention), Most Innovative PR Agency of the Year (Silver Stevie®), Ragan’s PR Daily Awards (Online Newsroom), Best Industry Website (Bronze Stevie®), Intelligent20 (Finalist), etc.
Digital marketing today is sophisticated – it is not just posting on Facebook or getting fans/followers. You are looking for brand voice, reputation management, crisis communication, social listening and engagement. You want sales. You want revenue. We can help with integrated and holistic inbound marketing programs to steer a call-to-action, generate leads, and enhance your sales cycle.
Even though social media has changed dramatically, it is still important to have it as part of your marketing campaigns and programs. For B2B clients, the need to have LinkedIn content is paramount, as much as blog content for your corporate website or a microsite we can host and maintain. For B2C clients, the need for various social media such as Instagram and Facebook, video-centric platforms such as YouTube and VIMEO, Dark Social marketing through WhatsApp, or other peripheral social networks such as Pinterest, Twitter, etc, can all be managed through our Digital Marketing arm. And if you are thinking of the 1+ Billion market in China, we have partners to help you reach the social networks in China as well (wechat, weibo, etc). Find out more here.
Most marketers (B2C and B2B) tend to use outbound marketing first. However, inbound marketing (permission-based marketing) is now recognized as a powerful tool to seek out customers, convert them into leads, nurture them, close deals, and continue to engage them as long-term customers. Some of the common tactics include EDM, landing pages, microsites, etc. Find out more here.
Did you know that 70% or more of people are viewing video as their primary content today? And they are watching it on smartphones and tablets. Are you reaching out to these audiences and customers, or are you still stuck in a text-centric world? We have produced cinematic and TV ads, produced doccumetaries and short films for clients’ marketing campaigns, and produced video content for editorial and marketing. Find out more here.
We design, host and maintain your website, microsite, online newsroom, on our fast and secure SSD (solid state drive) servers. We know how to optimise your server, secure it, and set it up for good sustainable SEO (search engine optimization) that get your website found by customers. We have been sysadmin, database developer, and cybersecurity developers since 1996. Find out more here.
We develop mobile apps for the Google Play (Android) and Apple iOS (iPhone and iPad), or mobile-friendly “Web Apps”.
AI and Machine Learning advertising seems like the rage, and if you need programmatic advertising buys, we can help, on top of Google SEM (AdWords) and social media advertising. We leverage on a programmatic ad platform that uses AI and machine learning to optimize ad buys for you, with fraud detection, transparency on commissions, reports on costs and where your ads appear, and also create IAB-compliant creatives with A/B testing. The platform caters to an intelligent mix of Prospecting and Retargeting ads, so that you can reach out to useful and convertible prospects, and engage them and turn them into paying customers. Obviously, the platform targets mobile, desktop and tablet screens, across global and major Ad Exchanges such as AppNexus, Google AdX, Microsoft AdX, etc, as well as programmatic access to premium publishers such as CNN, BBC, LinkedIn, Forbes, Bloomberg, Huffington Post, Techcrunch, SPH, Yahoo, Time, etc (more than 100,000 sites and AdXs).
Marketing is too important to be left to the marketing department.
