Promoting a business online in Thailand is a must if you own a business in Thailand. First of all you must have a website for it, of course you have a website, but if your business website is not optimized for the World Wide Web (on-page SEO) and visible to the whole world from your current location in Thailand then you are missing out on customers every day. There are customers and clients out there that are searching for businesses just like yours every day in Thailand. The question is are you visible to them?
Search engine optimization also known as SEO is without question the most cost effective way to attract more customers to your business. When your website is optimized, the people who are most likely to search for and need your business will be able to find you on the search engines.
Try and take a quick think back to the last time you used the internet to search for a business. Did you scroll all the way to page 10 to find what you were looking for? Unless you’re in the 0.1% minority I’m guessing you probably did not.
On the World Wide Web is where most businesses are found (if they’re lucky). More often they are even lower down this list which is the same as saying “farewell and goodbye” to potential customers.
So how do you become a website that is seen and relevant in the eyes of customers? The key is to have your website optimized so the search engine spiders adore your site and become eager to show it on the first page of the real Google search engine, and it is essential to have an SEO expert who can do this work for your website.
An SEO company will help you uncover the words and phrases (called keywords) which your business website can rank for and optimize your website for these phrases. So if your keyword was “restaurant in Phuket”, then when someone searches for this phrase in Google your website will show at the top of the first page of Google.
This is as opposed to what most people do which is put a lot of effort into their website only to have the anguish of owning a website that no one ever visits. A website without any traffic is pointless. Another name for this method is the “hope and pray” method.
If you’re a proactive business owner you will try and make things happen rather than let the gods decide upon your fate. For an SEO expert who works with us, it is not hard to get your site optimized and have it ranking on the first page within 30 to 90 days.
When you consider that the internet is the first port of call for most people when it comes to searching for a business, then it makes sense to pay attention to this area of marketing.
How effective is this method of marketing? Well even primitive websites that are ugly and poorly designed can rank well. The search engines want to serve up their users with the websites that will answer their questions and meet their needs…even if these websites are hideously ugly.
So unless you want to be another website that is indistinguishable from the millions of others out there, it pays to have an SEO expert work with you on your site to bring you more traffic and ultimately more customers and a better return on investment.
