Proven digital marketing experts

Headquartered in Hong Kong and founded by an ex-Apple marketer described by The New York Times as "an expert in online search", Cogney combines digital marketing with analytical rigour to help you acquire customers quicker. We typically work with well-funded startups and Fortune 500 companies, but no matter your size if you have product-market fit and a desire to grow, we can make it happen.

Why we're unlike other digital marketing consultants

Cogney moves fast and has unparalleled talent.


The #1 reason we see companies fail to connect with their audiences is their lack of speed moving from data to insight to action. It's not easy to maneuver quickly. The digital landscape is evolving, algorithms get smarter, and the time it takes to sift through your data takes time away from product development.

Many agencies don't have time for complexity. They're going to push you to do everything they can throw at you - trying to do everything, but in the end doing nothing well. Cogney on the other hand provides fewer services and does them really well. You'll move fast, and grow your revenue faster.


The bottom-line for magnificent success is the people. From being called "an expert in online search" by The New York Times to assisting a US Senate inquiry on illicit SEO, no other agency in Hong Kong has as deep and proven mastery in the industry. We've worked with global luxury fashion brands, a highly-trafficked job board, and one of the world's largest travel companies - just to name a few. Why not see what we can do for you?
