Hannes built processes for multilingual keyword research, ensuring consistency and relevancy between website and online content, and delivering exceptional returns for online advertisers as a result. Hannes is a passionate polyglot with knowledge of over 12 languages, so is ideally placed to drive Locaria’s localisation technology and multilingual campaign strategy across all global search engines.
