  • Lack of customers in foreign trade? In fact, the thinking is too narrow

    Recently, it is the peak season for foreign trade. Many foreign trade companies are busy with their orders. But there are also few customers who worry about it. What is better in our business is that we serve more customers and have more knowledge. What I often hear is: our business is not good, our business is special, and our business has few customers. This is a typical way of developing customers without opening their minds. For example, there is a copper carving customer who uses Ding Yi to develop foreign carpet dealers and gardening companies. Because customers who make long red carpets have to put handicraft decorations on both sides of the carpets, the isolated carpets are not of good quality. Garden design companies not only plant trees, but also put statues. This is like the current popularity of the small B market. Furniture dealers have begun to develop individual designers in foreign trade. Although their products are scattered, the volume is still quite large at the end of the year. To do foreign trade, to do small, can…

For example, the rest time, study time and the number of customers visited are all done step by step every day. They do things…
