ENTERING THE GERMAN MARKET.

Why Germany?

Engaging the German eCommerce market  generally is a highly lucrative endeavour. Iincomes are high, return rates are low and the purchase power of German consumers ranks among the highest in the world.

But there is more. For instance, did you know that Germans are not just solvent, but also highly active online buyers?

With a heavy internet penetration of 91% the vast majority of the population buys online on a regular basis.

WHERE WE OPERATE.

German Business
Culture

When Germans do business they seek to create long-lasting relationships that are based on trust. In fact, trust is perhaps the highest valued trait in German business culture. It even ranks above monetary aspects like the price of goods and services.

The term German Angst therefore has nothing to do with fear. It simply refers to uncertainty avoidance, the reduction of cost and the refusal to waste time.

Trust as a key factor in business also implies a high level of  transparency. Germany ranks 9/180 in the Corruption Perception Index. This means it is not only of the largest economies in the world, but also one of the most transparent. France only ranks 23/180.

Indeed, the clear-cut separation of business and private life is deeply rooted in German culture. What may appear to outsiders as humorless in actuality is just that: a clear division between business (serious) and pleasure (joyful).

Business demands gravity and rigour, life demands caprice.

A GERMAN DIGITAL MARKETING AGENCY.

How We Work

As a born-and-bred German digital agency one of our strength lies in profound cultural awareness. Germany is one of the most affluent, but also one of the most regulated markets in Europe, perhaps even in the world.

Therefore, entering the German market is often easier than prevailing in it.

At SustSeo we know how to navigate around the local market successfully and with the necessary diligence. Our holistic approach to marketing considers facts and numbers as much as it pays tribute to the “soft” factors of consumer culture. 

Don’t end up like Wal-Mart or the Huffington Post.

Talk to us instead.

We know the German market in and out. For Germany we are able to cover everything from SEO over compliance to traditional PR.
