We continue to explore the local markets to make it easier for you to start or improve your career in that region. In this article, we will look at the specifics of the digital marketing field in Poland.
Meet our guest experts
We talked to experienced digital professionals who we trust. This article has been updated with their comments to give you a broader picture of the Polish market.

This article will be helpful to:
Professionals who are just starting their journey in the market;
Digital specialists who want to find fresh inspirational ideas;
Those who are just merely interested to learn more about the Polish digital market.

How do specialists keep up with trends?

To succeed in working or developing a business in a new country, you must pay attention to cultural specifics. The first one that appears in minds is language.
content languages in Poland
78.6% of respondents shared that they get professional content in Polish, and 21.4% prefer English.
Different peculiarities than Anglo-Saxon languages characterize Polish as an inflectional language. For this reason, working on the text using automatic tools created strictly for English-language sites is not very effective and usually requires the participation of a native speaker.
— Adam Kubaszewski
You don't need really know the language to work in different markets. Once I worked in an Arabic market. There are other languages. Even letters are different there. If you do everything correctly, you can look at metrics, and if there are good keywords, you will see them anyway.

As well, I have another example. The Netherlands is quite small country, and content writers are not that many. Not everyone from abroad can speak dutch. So the prices for content are relatively high.
When I have to work there, we translate texts to dutch by AI, and then a native guy reviews it.
— Lukacz Zelezny

Do the SEO Specialists Need to Know the Language of the Project They Are Working With?

We also asked which social networks are the most popular among Polish digital professionals.

The results are following:
top social medias in Poland
46.7% use Facebook, 26.7% – LinkedIn, 10% – Twitter, 6.7% – Instagram, 6.7% – TikTok and 3.3% prefer YouTube.
For professional purposes, I often use LinkedIn and Facebook (especially Groups, Events, and Messenger). Professionally, I do not use other social networks.
— Sebastian Heymann
Regarding the number of users, Facebook is still number one, although it has lost momentum and popularity, especially among the younger age group.
— Adam Kubaszewski

What tools do Polish SEOs use?

It is necessary to rely on verified data to work effectively. Marketing tools are one source of such data. And they, like preferences in films, can vary from country to country.

We asked our respondents about their favorite marketing tools. Among them were both global and local platforms:
Serpstat
Google Tools (Google Trends, Google Keyword Planner, Google Search Console, Google Site Speed Test)
Screaming frog
Contadu
Sitebubl
Seostation
Senator
Surfer SEO
LinkHouse
WhitePress
Pulno
I will answer perversely: they pay attention to the tool's marketing instead of what they need. First, you need to determine the needs and then only get down to tool choices - what set of tools and at what price will give me everything I need.
— Sebastian Heymann
We pay special attention to how fast the tool works. If it takes a few minutes to generate an SEO report, this is usually too long to wait. Also critical are the tool's capabilities in question and whether there are too many limitations.
— Adam Kubaszewski

Conclusion

The Polish digital sector is very diverse and full of professional resources. We should also note that they have their own local SEO tools, which are pretty popular within the country.

We hope this article was helpful for you! Have a nice journey in Polish digital market.
