There has been a lot of going on for WOT in the Russian markets lately. Our team has been strengthened with Igor and Anna, who will be focusing on growing and serving the community in Russia.
We had a little chat with Anna to see how things are progressing.
Anna, how is it going in the Russian markets?
Our user base in Russia is growing faster than anywhere else. We have nearly 4 million downloads there, which makes it the third biggest country in total, right after the US and Germany. WOT’s partnering with Russia’s biggest free email service provider Mail.ru, and protects their users against untrustworthy links. All in all, I could say it’s going very well. However, we’re not done – there’s huge potential in the markets.
What have you been doing lately?
So far, we’ve been strengthening WOT’s presence in Russian social media channels. We’ve also participated in major Russian Internet events, for example in the Mail.ru Tech Forum, the Safe Internet Forum, and the Russian Internet Forum “RIF+KIB 2012” in Moscow. Web security was a focus area in these events, and there has been lots of interest towards WOT. Next you can meet us at the St. Petersburg Internet Conference in May 28-29.
What would you like to say to the Russian speaking community?
It’s our pleasure to work with you all to grow our community further in Russia and in Russian speaking countries. Please keep rating sites and recommending WOT to your friends for a safer Runet (Russian Internet).
