Saludo SMEs: How Globe myBusiness heralds a digital future

Argie C. Aguja (The Philippine Star) - July 27, 2020 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — The COVID-19 pandemic is putting small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to the test. From food businesses, retailers, family-owned shops and home-based enterprises, all are facing an existential threat. The three-month lockdowns in Metro Manila and most parts of the country have closed down most establishments, stymied consumer demand and dampened economic activity. While social distancing and self-isolation have been severe blows to all businesses, SMEs that rely on in-person transactions have had it particularly hard.

To help local SMEs bounce back from the economic effects of this pandemic, Globe myBusiness has launched Saludo SMEs, a multi-pronged approach to re-energize local SMEs and help them establish their own online presence, complete with a 360-campaign, digital promos, customer engagements, and digital events.

In 2019, Globe myBusiness launched Saludo SMEs campaign to give SMEs a helping hand in their own digital shift. A pandemic is threatening the livelihood of many, and local SMEs need support now more than ever. More than a salute to the tireless efforts and resilient spirit of Filipino entrepreneurs, Saludo SME is Globe’s homegrown initiative to assist local SMEs, especially those who are new to online efforts and will likely need the most help in brand-building.

Empowering SMEs with exclusive saludo offers

In line with this effort, Globe myBusiness is rolling out several exclusive Saludo SMEs offers that are available until July 31, 2020. SMEs may choose from any of the following:

  • Saludo SMEs Postpaid Broadband Plans - For as low as P1899 per month, business owners can get a speed of up to 50 mbps, a significant upgrade from the current speed of 20 Mbps.

Kicking off toward a new tomorrow

To help SMEs conquer challenges in the "new normal" world, the Saludo SMEs campaign kicked off with the Para sa Bagong Bukas: Business Consultation Caravan last June 25, in partnership with Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) Philippines. Launched via Facebook Live on Globe myBusiness' Facebook Page, the event featured messages of advice and inspiration from Globe Telecom President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Ernest Cu and Ayala Corporation Chairman and CEO Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala.

A key highlight of the event was the special reveal of an inspirational video sung by Broadway legend and international Filipino pride Lea Salonga that gives homage to the unwavering entrepreneurial spirit of local SMEs.To catch a glimpse of the inspirational video, visit
