As part of Exabytes’ ‘OnlineLah Tauke!’ campaign, the contest urges any Malaysian mobile user to create video (not more than 5 minutes) that creatively demonstrates the benefits of doing business online.
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!”.
Chan Kee Siak, CEO and founder of Exabytes Network Sdn Bhd, shares that the objective of the contest is to encourage ‘traditional, offline’ businesses to break through to explore the wide range of new opportunities available by going online so as to be engaged in eCommerce.
“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.”
