Note: ‘OnlineLah Tauke!’ is a company-led campaign to create awareness amongst SMBs on the importance of setting up online presence. The catchy campaign name ‘OnlineLah Tauke!’ is a Malaysian slang expression which means “Let’s Go Online, Boss!”.

“The submissions to Exabytes's video contest should be meaningful and humorous, but yet focus on how websites, ecommerce platforms and social media are helping traditional business to grow online by highlighting its core benefits.”

Updates on “OnlineLah Tauke!” Campaign
