About

Today’s marketplace is global, social and multilingual.

Technology companies around the world are choosing to be global-ready from the day they launch. They are reaching out to millions of customers beyond their own borders through well-informed, well-executed international marketing strategies. The fact is: doing global business has never been easier than it is right now, at this point in history. And this new global marketplace is here to stay.

Meanwhile, our global climate crisis requires global-ready solutions. For the sake of the planet, we need to implement green technologies across languages, borders and cultures.

That’s why your Cleantech company needs an international marketing strategy.

Our world is more connected now than ever before. More and more people around the globe are accessing the Internet every day, and they’re looking for content in their native language. Currently, 90% of all Internet users are based outside of North America, and 75% are non-English speakers. And those percentages will keep increasing every year, as Internet penetration rates are still growing rapidly in markets outside of North America and Europe.

Tech companies of all sizes are leveraging this increasingly global digital marketplace like never before. Yours can too.

To be successful, though, you have to get strategic about your international marketing efforts. It starts with doing proper market research. Then you need to reach out to your target customers where they are – including on social media – and in their preferred language. And to truly engage them, you need to show cultural intelligence (CQ).

That’s a lot to think about. Chances are, you don’t have all the right experts in-house. In fact, you may not be sure what kind of experts you really need. Because when you’re entering new territory, you don’t know what you don’t know.

That’s where Verbaccino comes in.

Who is behind Verbaccino?

Kathrin Bussmann, Ph.D.

I’m Kathrin Bussmann, President & Chief Strategist at Verbaccino Inc. I’m German-Canadian, born and raised in Quebec, and now based in Toronto. I grew up equally fluent in German, French and English. I hold degrees in Communication Studies and Linguistics from the University of Ottawa, and a Ph.D. from Humboldt-Universität in Berlin. I’ve always been passionate about language, culture and good communication.

Now, as an international marketing consultant, I understand how important cultural intelligence (CQ), up-to-date market research, and translation & localization are for organizations looking to expand internationally. That’s why I founded Verbaccino, a strategic consultancy for global-minded, mission-driven business leaders. I’m specifically focused on helping Cleantech companies scale their solutions across languages, cultures and borders.

My sweet spot is at the intersection of sustainable global business, international marketing, and localization: I love exploring how crucial, how specialized, and how connected these fields are in today’s global economy. That’s the motivation behind my award-winning interview-style audio show: The Worldly Marketer Podcast. (Keep informed of new episodes by joining my mailing list!)

There’s nothing I enjoy more than (net)working with open-minded, collaborative people. I’m a proud member of The Global Chamber, and the Globalization and Localization Association (GALA). I’m also a co-founder of the Eastern Canada Chapter of Women in Localization, and I’ve been named as a Top 50 Localization Industry Influencer by Nimdzi Insights.

Let’s see how we can work together!
