There are 3 things products Asia Advisory is focussed on:

  1. Digital Marketing: Getting their digital presence up and running; websites, content and social media
  2. B2B Partnerships: Helping our clients with trade shows to sell their products via wholesalers and inbound tour operators
  3. e-Commerce and mobile payments: Get setup to sell tourism experiences online and to be able to manage inventory and take payments

These are all critical for tourism businesses as many do not have a physical shopfront, so success with digital marketing and e-commerce will determine success for the business.
