Our main customers continue to come from the Thai academic world. The business sector seems lukewarm to the benefits of writing in clear accurate English, but we persevere and welcome all enquiries from the commercial sector. We principally market through our website, Facebook and online advertising sites. It is gratifying to see we are getting numerous repeat customers and word of mouth (WOM) recommendations. Also, many students studying abroad have found AE a useful help as they try to write in the often tortuous English language.
In 2013 Kun Patcharin and George launched a second business selling Thai herbs from the northern region of Thailand; unfortunately in a heavily populated market results have been poor. Kun Patcharin is still working hard in her position of lecturer in a Chiang Mai university.
Our associate Byron has had a busy year. After his three month trip to his native USA he returned to Thailand to marry his long-time girlfriend – congratulations B!
Our plan is to continue trading into 2014 from our base in Chiang Mai, we don’t envisage too many changes and look forward to greeting customers old and new.
A happy and prosperous New Year to you all.
Until next time
