Just can’t help taking a swipe at MSIG’s recent launch of their RM500,000 GenPage website portal. OMG! Is this some exorbitant show or what! In the days of open source, cloud computing and free templates for website building, why is there a need to create website portal to cage up a group of agency websites?
Did I said, “cage” or was it “house”? Ummm… not sure now, looks like cage to me if you were to take a closer look at the contents of this site. The contents are more than 90% propaganda stuff, except for some quotation features, there are no eCommerce facilities. If there are no eCommerce features and with the contents being those of standard protocol stuff, I really can’t see how this project can be of help to the agents.
Moreover, the agent would have a mouthful telling his clients, “please access my site at http://partner.msig.com.my/tkf/index.dot“…. hello! can I borrow a pen and paper, please!
Anyway…… it is still something lah! if we do not look at the money spent…. HALF point for trying to be creative with the cyber distribution channel.
