I investigated seo in Philippines because I own a retail brick and mortar store that sells some pretty specialized items and I could see how the winds were starting to blow. Anyone who is paying attention to the retail situation worldwide knows there is something huge going on in that sector. The last couple of years it’s really seemed to be picking up, too. Those winds are blower harder. Soon, I think, it will be impossible to simply set up a store and make a living. Everyone will have to be online or they will go out of business.
We can thank a specific enormous online retailer for all these changes. It’s almost like they’re a monopoly who are totally destroying the retail sector. What they’re doing, however, is just forcing everyone to compete with them. I don’t know if the American government will take some sort of anti-trust action against this company, but until they do it’s important to get online and start setting up an ecommerce site to do business. The time to do it was actually about five years ago, but if you haven’t done it, do it now. And make sure customers see you.
That last point is very important. I used a firm that specializes in search engine optimization in order to make sure my site shows up on the first page of the search results. People only read the first page, so it’s critical to get there for those eyes to see. It worked, too. I’ve been getting orders from around the world, and that obviously never happened before. I’m so busy shipping stuff that I barely have time to deal with the customers who walk in the door. Those people will probably start buying from me online as well. It is truly the way of the future.
