Neom City on my mind. So phase 1 has been completed and phase 2 is planned for completion soon.
But beyond all the physical plans and all the construction and talks and consulting firms hired, no one has touched on the fact aswell as a physical world we also have to match the virtual world in terms of location, being found and driving traffic to the said area. Eventually there will be PR agencies that will jump on the bandwagon and Advertising companies but more needs to be written on the proposals of how the startup businesses are going to be run and what they need to do in order to start building a profitable business. Rome was not built in 7 days and although websites can be it still does not reflect how startups should aim to develop themselves.
No one has mentioned anything about companies wishing to start business in Neom. I have reached out to Neom.com and they have not replied, so thinking outside the box I will be contacting the consulting companies soon basically doing their work for them. There are three consulting firms that have been hired but none talk about businesses starting up in Neom and what the protocals are.
No one has done a step by step plan on how to start a business in Neom. People need to know this well in advance. It takes time to get training and licenses. Aswell as this and everyone in the SEO industry would agree with me it takes time to generate traffic and its always better to develop a website well in advance in order to be ranked by search engines, which could take anything from 12 to 18 months for this to happen.
Businesses should be able to secure their global positioning way ahead of their competitors and where better to start and that is by using the word ‘Neom’ in the searchable phrase for the industry you wish to target.
I have just launched www.neomsme.com and for anyone that does not know what SME means it is an acronym of ‘Small, Medium Enterprises’.
On this website I will offer website design, marketing, seo and domain sales and acquisitions. If there is a domain that one desperately needs we can help acquire that name for the prospective business owner.
I have so many questions to ask Neom.com but my arabic is not very good.
Never mind hiring the best consulting firms on the planet if they do not guide business owners in the right direction.
Invest in me and I will do the consulting, marketing and advertising.
I have spoken to many people and Neom City is relatively unheard of in the western world unless you read business news that is.
Without giving too much away and I have plently of ideas, more has to be done in order to help this project off the ground. It is no good doing things backwards and leaving things like domain name securing and website development to the last minute.
There is no time like the present to build a business and put a launch date on the landing page.
