SINGAPORE, September 18, 2009 – Company registration and corporate advisory firm Rikvin Consultancy has launched an innovative business referral and networking service, leveraging Web Television and Web 2.0 technologies.
Called “How’s Business?”™, the service aims to help small and medium enterprises (SMEs) take advantage of the nascent economic recovery. It involves recorded, on-camera interviews with the CEOs of small and medium enterprises, in which they have the opportunity to introduce their company to prospective customers, highlight key milestones in their corporate history and reference top clients.
The resulting interview is then broadcast on their own websites, via email to their prospects, and on in-taxi screens in Singapore. Interested viewers can then contact the company to discuss business tie-ups and
Rikvin Consultancy is launching the service to help its own clients overcome the recession. “More than 3,000 companies from Singapore and around the Asia Pacific region trust us with their company secretarial and corporate advisory requirements,” said Mr Satish Bakhda, CEO of Rikvin Consultancy. “We can play a substantial role in helping each of our clients identify new customers, raise their profile and forge new business partnerships, simply by putting them in touch with our other clients.”
How’s Business?™ is specially geared to SMEs because they don’t usually enjoy a high profile in the media, and their marketing, advertising and promotion budgets tend to be small. The program was initiated by Hong Bao Media, a web television production company headquartered in Singapore, which produces news programs and channels for companies wanting to reach out directly to their clients.
Led by former CNBC presenter Mark Laudi, Hong Bao Media will produce the interviews at its Singapore studio and syndicate the program through the internet and the in-vehicle screens of more than 1,000 Comfort taxis.
“More and more companies are turning to web television for more effective internal and marketing communications,” he says, “our clients get the exposure and effectiveness of traditional television but they are in control of the message and, just as importantly, how viewers then act on the message.”
Email distribution of the completed recordings will be managed by SeemeM@il, a company which specialises in video recruitment and video marketing solutions. The SeemeM@il system allows companies to create, send and measure fully branded video email. CEO David Padgett says “Online video delivered by email provides a cost effective and highly targeted solution which allows companies to educate, engage, entertain and empower their
customers and prospects. Video marketing has traditionally been the privilege of big companies, however with our platform and the “How’s Business?”™ initiative any company can now innovate and personalise their online marketing communications.”
