Google are normally always one step ahead in the world of technology but even with their thousands of highly skilled app developers and all the resources they have at their disposal they have missed out on an important service for the Vietnamese community. Mike Huynh, a part-time developer from San Jose, saw a gap in the market and found Vietnamese businesses were struggling to be found in Google.
Soon after he arrived in San Jose, the capital of Silicon Valley he found it hard to find Vietnamese businesses and services unless he bought a local Vietnamese newspaper. So Mike decided to do something about it and within a few days he developed a clever Vietnamese Local Business Directory app called GanToi.
The new Vietnamese business directory app (GanToi.com) is set to become one of the most important marketing tools for the Vietnamese business community. It provides local California businesses to connect with potential local customers without wasting money on expensive marketing campaigns. The app that has beaten Google at their own game allows the user to easily locate a business of their choice in their chosen local community.
Mike Huynh, the founder of GanToi.com, explained: “One of the biggest problems people have when searching for a local Vietnamese business is not getting the information they need in the Google search engine. Searches for local Vietnamese businesses are never accurate, and this is due to the fact that most local Vietnamese businesses don’t promote themselves online, most will advertise in a traditional local Vietnamese newspaper.”
With three billion people using the Internet with many of them looking for local services, it has become important for local businesses to be found online. However, Google is letting the Vietnamese community down, which means local Vietnamese businesses are missing out on important revenue. That is why the new Vietnamese business directory has become an important tool. With having the right information, and having an app that works in a different and more positive way than Google and allows the user to find a business based on their location, it means an increase in revenue for local businesses.
“Where Google failed the local community, we have succeeded. That is how we beat Google at their own game. Our applications don’t sort businesses based on keywords or keyword optimization; they are listed purely on the basis of their proximity to the user of the app.”, explained Mike Huynh.
With 7.19 billion mobile devices in the world, apps have become an important way of finding products and services. Research has found that 77 percent of those looking for a product or service with a local business on their mobile device went on to make a purchase, showing the power of apps and mobile devices. The local Vietnamese local directory app aims to help local Vietnamese businesses to increase their revenue and help people living in the local community to buy local.
The GanToi App is easy to use and allows local Vietnamese business owners to get listed on the app for free. There is a small administration and support fee, which helps the running cost of GenToi.com. Due to the success of the app, there are plans to make it global, making it the most important worldwide Vietnamese business marketing tool.
