WebME Technologies - Google partnership means improved Google reach into fast growing Ecuador

MIAMI, June 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- WebME Technologies has joined Google's Partner program with the objective of expanding Google's reach into Ecuador.

WebME Technologies is a digital marketing agency in Miami, Florida specializing in search engine optimization, AdWords Campaigns, Google Display Network and Web Development. Google is an American multinational corporation specializing in Internet-related services and products. These include online advertising technologies, search, cloud computing, and software.  Most of its profits are derived from AdWords.

Ecuador is a particularly appealing market where 35.1 % of the population (5.3 million users) is on line. Of this total almost 826 thousand are fixed broadband subscribers and 3.4 million are mobile broad band subscribers.

Supported by continuing growth in GDP, Ecuador is considered one of the better performing economies in Latin America. Ecuador's fixed-line teledensity lags behind that of neighboring countries, with significant unsatisfied demand. A large portion of the country has little or no fixed telephone coverage, partly because remote mountainous areas make the cost of laying out copper wire prohibitive.

The government is keen to advance universalization and improve teledensity and is taking an active role in expanding Internet access across the country with a goal of having over 50% of all households connected by 2015. Public Internet Access Centers, know as Infocentros, have been installed in 377 of Ecuador's 810 rural parishes (48 %) with a goal of reaching 100% by the end of 2014.

In line with the global trend, Ecuadorians have turned to mobile handsets in preference to the traditional fixed-line phone. The country's telecom market is heavily skewed towards mobility, with seven mobile phones for every fixed line in service. This creates a unique opportunity for mobile and social media marketing in Ecuador.

CEO and Founder Andres Focil said: "Our priority is to make a measurable difference for our clients' businesses and help them grow as a result of our online marketing work. Ecuador is an important market for us and we believe that there is a great future here. We are thrilled and humbled by this partnership and look forward to help Google expand their reach in Ecuador"
