If you needed to do any business in Korean market, there was a time when you have to meet your business prospect in person to move forward. This is still true to some extent but it’s changing.
Also there was a time when organic SEO/SEM marketing method was useless as no one searched new opportunities online but this is not true at all today.
People search online, more precisely people search anything on “NAVER” not ‘Google’ in Korean market. So your visibility on NAVER space is they key to let your target audiences find you. With this said, the first step you need to do is optimize your blog on NAVER, secondly make your blog content look different from others. In other words, your content should stand out. Otherwise, it wouldn’t attract visitors attention within a few seconds. And you know that you only have a few seconds to win their heart.
There are too many bloggers in Korea, therefore it’s challenging to find good information via NAVER search. So people began to filter out the information at a first glance based on the quality of the photos on your posting even before reading the content.
This is sad but true. So high quality photos are the key ingredients to attract viewers mind. Of course, this becomes important once you reach SEO goal on NAVER space.
Is it even possible to do SEO work on NAVER?
When you search NAVER SEO, you will end up running into all sorts of rumors. Some people say it’s impossible to do NAVER SEO work as there are no rules. Others might say it’s faster to purchase an existing SEO optimized blog. None of these are true. NAVER blog is non-transferrable, if someone says you can purchase or rent it, it’s illegal.
NAVER officially offers some training. Also there are a number of private institute you can learn NAVER SEO techniques. But I’d like to advise you to find someone who could give you feedback on each postings you make along the way. You can learn a few skills from the trainings. But there are various scenarios where you have to apply different rules.
So understanding the basics are enough to make you get started on NAVER blog, but once you move forward, you need good feedback on each postings to correct the courses.
NAVER SEO works best for engineering companies.
While online presence and high visibility are the key to generate new leads and maintain your brand identity to any businesses, if you run engineering business, you will earn major benefits by achieving NAVER SEO.
From one man operation to big company like LG and Samsung, researchers and engineers search on NAVER to find outsourcing partners. You could achieve high visibility through NAVER AdWords. But engineers in Korea typically don’t trust sponsor links. They trust more on the organic search output.
If you are ready to land a business in Korea, the first step is building a NAVER blog. To make the best of your time, it’s advised to start this process three months prior to your lading plan as SEO work typically takes three to maximum 6 months.
