What We Do

01

Digital Strategy

Changes in technology happen rapidly. In order to properly seize new market opportunities, business models must be redefined using IT. Knowing that technology can determine the success or failure of a business, our staff members make practical use of it within their area of expertise to achieve business transformation with a high return on investment.

02

Data Analysis

With a colossal amount of data sources now available, many companies are overwhelmed by the sheer amount of time needed for analysis. But to survive in a data-driven world, you need to put data to work in your business. We use AI technology for big data analysis and use it as a source of information to infer customer buying behavior models.

03

Brand Experience

In order to have a good brand strategy that allows the business move ahead of the competition, we need a clear, straightforward plan in place. When people have confidence in your product / services, they will be willing to pay whatever the cost. We provide sophisticated measures to engender such confidence.

04

Programmatic Advertising

The key to a successful programmatic advertising campaign lies in setting the right target index. We strive to decipher customer needs in a rapidly changing market environment. The more specific the target audience, the better the response will be to the campaign.

05

SNS Marketing

The days when it was acceptable to rely on a single channel to reach customers are over. Our tried and tested strategies make us the agency of choice for companies that don’t have the time or skills needed to focus on social media campaigns.

06

SEO Optimization

Search engine optimization is an important process that makes it easier for customers to find your products and services through an organic search. Advancing your business through SEO also helps establish the brand identity of your company. We prepare targeted content to help you achieve better results from organic searches.

07

Web & Motion Design

Optimal web design with quality, performance, and creativity will help you communicate the information your customers want in a simpler way. From conceptual design to motion graphics design, we use visual cues to create a user experience that goes far beyond the limitations of text.

08

User Experience Design

In order to enhance a business with the right user experience (UX), we need to meet the constantly changing needs of our clients. For a more user-oriented approach, we identify client priorities and rethink the communication between your business and customers.

Work Process

01

Research & Analytics

We identify the pain points in client businesses. Before developing a digital marketing campaign, we need to understand what makes each company unique in terms of its business, market position, etc. We research and analyze the specific issues identified in order to develop strategies that will help your company succeed.

02

Communication & Planning

We provide multiple solutions, budgets, and time-lines to produce results in line with the business needs of each company. You can tell us specifically about the prospective customers of your company. Then, for a successful marketing strategy, we segment the customer base closer to your target insights.

03

Management & Creativity

Our industry-experienced, multi-skilled marketers and data scientists execute the marketing campaigns we put together. The entire campaign is handled by the Sokai team. Based on data, Sokai comes up with cutting-edge, highly accurate improvement strategies.

04

Adjustment & Results

Focusing on campaign performance, we put solutions into action, while repeatedly measuring the data, considering and improving the strategy for better results. By setting realistic and measurable numerical goals, our solutions can move forward based on effective measures of success. By so doing, we can deliver continuous and better results.

Sharing Knowledge for the Success of Others

We are not afraid to share our unique knowledge and expertise for the good of your business. The essence of growing a business is not knowledge per se, but the understanding of market insights. We invest on an individual level in more creative and abstract activities, both with our clients and with our collaborative partners.

An Uncomplicated, High-quality Approach

Both the tools and know-how needed to achieve satisfactory business results do not need to be groundbreaking. Sticking to the essentials, we implement a comprehensive, high-quality approach based on straightforward ideas.
