We believe that all effective communication starts with good content, regardless of whether it is news stories, inspirational articles, blogs, Tweets, videos or content in other multimedia formats. Through our own team and our network of affiliate writers, social media managers, film producers and cultural specialists all over the world, we have the ability to create and source industry specific and engaging content – in-house or crowd-sourced. More importantly, we can generate such content in a language appropriate for the target market and present it in the proper cultural context.
We believe that in order to communicate effectively in an increasingly pluralistic multilingual and multi-cultural marketplace, market specific knowledge and skills are critical. We also realize that acquiring such skills is a daunting task both for ourselves and our clients. Therefore, in addition to cultivating and continuing to sharpen such skills in-house, we continue to seek and work with partners who are best in class in their native language and market. When you work with Chichaku you also work with the very best marketing and PR agencies worldwide.
By doing the initial due diligence in selecting these partners and working with them to smooth out the process ahead of time, we help our clients hit the ground running by avoiding the time- and resource consuming steps often associated with the initial phases of market entry.
