RIFF, a European digital marketing agency, has opened up two new offices in Asia – namely in Singapore and Jakarta.

Speaking to Marketing on the move, Martijn van den Bemd, managing director RIFF APAC, said that the agency will be hiring 20 new employees in APAC within the next 12 months to bolster the new offices in Singapore and Jakarta.

In particular, the agency will focus on training and coaching local hires in Indonesia, and educating them on digital marketing. Currently, the Indonesia office has around eight staff, while the Singapore office has a headcount of six people.

When asked why Singapore was chosen to launch the new office, van den Bemd explained that many of the agency’s clients were operating in this market. As demand for its services grew in Southeast Asia, setting up in Singapore made sense. Moreover, Singapore possesses a talented and highly educated workforce with the right work ethic that aligns with the agency’s values.

RIFF provides digital marketing services which include SEM, SEO, CRO, display advertising, social advertising, video advertising and social engagement services. The agency is also a Premier Google Partner globally, in addition to being a Salesforce Partner and Facebook Marketing Partner.

“We are excited to expand Google's Premier Partner programme in Indonesia and Singapore with hand-picked, highly qualified companies like RIFF. Businesses in Indonesia and Singapore will not only benefit from RIFF’s in-depth training and AdWords expertise, but from their track record of connecting businesses with Google advertising solutions,” Matthew Heller, head of channel sales partnerships, Google, Southeast Asia and India, said.
