There have been a lot of lessons learned in the past two years with the COVID-19 pandemic. But one of the main lessons learned in the business world is the importance of online marketing in Malaysia as we adjust to the “new normal”.
The business world was thrown a massive curve in the first half of 2020 by the pandemic. Businesses had to regroup and struggle to find ways to stay in business with all the lockdowns and restrictions happening.
One thing that became clear right from the beginning was that for a business to be successful during the Covid era, it had to be flexible and take advantage of every marketing opportunity it had available. And the companies that had a distinct advantage over their competitors were the ones who had established a digital presence as a part of their business plans when they first opened for business.
Companies that had set themselves up to accept orders and payments over the internet and ship products to their clients experienced very little disruption to their business. They didn’t need to depend on customers shopping in a physical store to complete transactions. This was the ideal way to do business when the need for social distancing was so great.
Connecting with Customers
As these businesses depended more and more on their online sales channels, they also began to spend more energy and time taking advantage of the digital world’s marketing opportunities. They began to explore all the advertising available on the various social media platforms.
This proactive attitude saved a lot of businesses and even caused surprising rises in revenue for some of them. When a business starts aggressive online marketing, it’s often like launching a new business to users who do all their shopping online. And shopping online was becoming the safest option as the pandemic spread around the world.
When all these businesses in Malaysia suddenly turned to online marketing, it was like a fresh wave of shopping opportunities for the internet’s users. The business community was encouraged by the response to the establishment of a digital business presence and the realisation that while the economy was slowing, life would go on.
Professional Help with Online Marketing
But businesses soon found that setting up an effective online presence was more involved than paying someone to launch a website. Online marketing is a complicated and ongoing discipline. Most companies found that it was more effective to hand over this marketing to professional specialists who can make a significant difference in your company’s ability to reach your customer base.
