13 of the best online marketing agencies in Malaysia

October 22, 2021 Written by Abby Kury

Whether you’re a small business or a big and seasoned one, one thing’s for sure: you will always need marketing.

How else will you be able to maintain a long-lasting and ever-present relationship with your audience and customers, be it existing or prospective ones?

As a small business, one of the most important things you’d be planning for (other than your brand identity, logo and whatnot) is how to get customers through the door and into your store -- or through the web and onto your site.

Even when you’ve established yourself as one of the best and most popular brands or businesses in the industry, marketing never stops.

Though traditional ways of promoting your business, service or product such as through print ads, flyers and more are still effective, you’ll need to aim for bigger and better prospects. But how do you make this possible the easy way?

Do it the online way through digital marketing, of course!

What is digital marketing?


Digital marketing involves all types of marketing efforts via electronic devices or the internet to help businesses reach out to current and potential customers. This is usually done through search engines, social media, email, ads, websites and more.

Essentially, if it involves communicating digitally, that’s digital marketing. 

What are examples of digital marketing?

Here are a few key examples of the specialisations within digital marketing, and these are often the ones we come across here in Malaysia:

  •  Search engine optimisation (SEO)

There is a beautiful, succinct way of describing how SEO works, courtesy of The Balance, who defined this marketing tool as “the art and science of making web pages attractive to search engines.”

  • Content marketing

The goal of content marketing is to turn the readers into leads, who will then become customers.

While traditional advertising entices potential customers with the value a service or product can provide to them, content marketing is more focused on offering value via written material.

  •  Social media marketing

Most of us are either on Facebook or Instagram, which provides plenty of opportunities for businesses to market their products or services via social media.

You may have noticed that brands try to keep their profiles active either via engagement or ads, as it helps to drive traffic and create brand awareness. How social media marketing efforts are measured differ according to a company’s goal; it could be through website clicks or engagements (comments, likes, shares).

  • Pay-per-click (PPC) marketing

PPC involves posting an ad on a platform (usually Google), and paying when someone clicks on it. Though you may have no control of how and when your ads get displayed, the platform usually chooses the best ones to fill an available spot.

This, of course, relies on several factors such as the quality of your ad, keyword relevance, the quality of your landing page and bid amount.

  • Affiliate marketing

Getting someone to promote your business or service is essentially affiliate marketing.

If you're an affiliate, you get a commission every time someone purchases the item that you promote. If you're a merchant, you pay the affiliate for every sale they make.

  • Native advertising

Want to promote your business or service without being too “shouty” about it? Then native advertising is your best bet. The goal of native advertising is to blend into surrounding content so that it does not seem obvious that it was paid for.

However, it is highly recommended that you include a disclaimer in the beginning, either via the words “sponsored” or “promoted” so that readers won’t feel cheated at the end, especially when they realise that the content is biased.

  • Email marketing

The concept of email marketing is really very simple. You send a beautifully-worded or illustrated email containing a promotional message to your customers with the hopes of them clicking on it and purchasing whatever it is you’re selling.

Despite its low-key reputation in the world of digital marketing, research has shown that email marketing is still one of the most effective lead generators.

How can digital marketing help your business?


Aside from reaching a wide range of audiences, there are other advantages to digital marketing such as:

  • Reaching audiences beyond geographical borders
  • Promoting your business or service in a cost-effective way
  • Being able to measure results
  • Personalising your marketing efforts to suit different audiences
  • Connecting with more customers, which then leads to more conversions
  • Creating growth for your company
