2020 was the most challenging year for us since we started this site back in 2010. The headwinds caused by the pandemic caused major disruption to our business, and that of many of our clients.

However, there was a silver lining to the situation as the pandemic highlighted the importance of having an effective digital marketing strategy, as well as e-commerce for brands.

In fact, the situation did more to educate many brands than we could have ever done so in a lifetime, hastening the transition into e-commerce/ digital marketing for many brands, even those that are incredibly traditional!

We hope that the situation will improve in 2021 once mass vaccination of the population is achieved, which many experts expect to be achieved in Q3 or Q4 of 2021. Till then, brands need to be agile and dynamic enough to cope with the many challenges that lie ahead this year.

On behalf of the team at timchew.net, I would like to wish you a Happy New Year!

This year, I will also be having two (2) special features for Valentine’s Day 2021. One will feature the dining and stay promotions at hotels in Kuala Lumpur, Petaling Jaya and beyond, while the other will be a list of Valentine’s Day 2021 dining dinners and promotions at restaurants in Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya.

Get your hotel/ restaurant featured on timchew.net – luxury Malaysian lifestyle website which has worked with many top global brands.

My 2020 Valentine’s Day list featuring the top restaurants in Kuala Lumpur and the Klang Valley (https://timchew.net/2020/01/20/valentines-day-2020-dinners-in-kuala-lumpur-and-petaling-jaya-selangor/) was the top organic result (position zero) in Google search!

Position zero

Google selects the content for position zero based on its relevance to the search query and other search engine optimization (SEO) ranking factors of the host domain. The featured snippet is called position zero because it is displayed at the top of the SERPs, just after the ads, making it the top organic result.


My 2020 Valentine’s Day list featuring restaurants in hotels, as well as room promotions (https://timchew.net/2020/02/03/valentines-day-2020-kuala-lumpur-and-selangor-dinners-set-menus-romantic-restaurants-promotions/) was ranked as organic result no.4 (position no.5) in Google search.
