What sets CHARLESON® apart from other marketing agencies in Kenya and Africa?

Kenya has a population of 44 million people, and it’s one of the fastest-growing economies in Africa. The country’s GDP is growing at about 5% per year, which is faster than most other countries in sub-Saharan Africa. This growth has led to increased demand for consumer goods and services, which has created opportunities for brands to grow their businesses and reach customers across Africa. CHARLESON® understands the Kenyan market and is uniquely qualified to help international brands wishing to launch in Kenya connect with the local consumers.

How does CHARLESON® approach advertising campaigns?

In Africa, the number of people with access to the internet is growing at an unprecedented rate.

According to World Bank data, the number of people who have access to the internet in Africa grew from 39% in 2016 to 40% in 2017—and it’s expected to reach 52% by 2022. This means that there are more than 500 million more Africans who have access to the internet today than there were five years ago.

Does Charleson offer services for businesses outside of Kenya/Africa?

Facebook is by far the most popular social media platform in Kenya; it accounts for nearly 60% of all time spent online across all platforms (with YouTube coming in second at about 17%). However, Twitter and Instagram are also very popular—Twitter accounts for roughly 15% of all time spent online, while Instagram accounts for just under 10%.

I need a marketing agency in Kenya. Can CHARLESON® help?

Digital marketing agencies like CHARLESON® helps companies connect with their target audiences on various online platforms through storytelling and creative campaign execution.

How can a creative agency in Africa help grow my business?

Social media marketing uses social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter to create a brand’s presence and connect with customers.

Social media marketing agencies like CHARLESON® also try to engage customers through chat rooms, forums, and other interactive features on these platforms. This engagement helps build trust with consumers who might not otherwise have considered purchasing from them due to their lack of experience with the company’s products or services.
