  • As the year-end peak season approaches, what should foreign trade websites do for holiday marketing?

    According to foreign reports, “Black Friday” has been completely defeated by “Super Saturday” (Saturday before Christmas) in recent years. Foreign friends like shopping at Christmas very much, not only because it is an important festival, but also because many shops will be decorated with Christmas ornaments during this time to enhance the Christmas atmosphere and increase customers’ shopping desire. Today’s editorial takes “Super Saturday” as an example to share several effective sales promotion techniques of festival marketing on foreign trade websites. Tip 1: Create a Christmas special! If your promotion landing page is still the original website page at Christmas, there will be no atmosphere. But the cost of building a website solely for Christmas is too high. The editor here suggested to use special pages to make a special Christmas sale. In fact, UEESHOP system provides one-click selection of holiday promotion templates. As long as you touch your finger, you can set up a special page with rich festive atmosphere. Abandoning programmers is not a dream.

Today, let’s list some tricks, hoping to avoid unnecessary losses for everyone. 01, cheat test fee The fraudster posing as a Malaysian buyer is currently experiencing a fierce “performance” attack. Several foreign traders reported meeting him at the Fubu Forum. Some people are alert and some have already been recruited. Specific typical “set up” way is like this: The swindler claimed to be a Malaysian buyer and showed his purchasing intention.

  • 99% of foreign trade newcomers are following the “Order Death Book”

    Foreign trade seems simple, but in fact it is extremely complicated. It is not as easy as some new people think. In other words, you can string up the whole foreign trade process with a few simple paragraphs or a hand drawing to form the overall framework of the foreign trade business, but you can hardly finish or learn all the details of all links in very little time, and each link in foreign trade is very important, closely linked and linked. Just like some people ask me: how does lingying ( linkedin ) play? How does Google develop its customers? Believe me, it’s really not that I don’t want to spend a few minutes telling you, but that I don’t have so much free time to explain to you one by one, because your problems will go on endlessly, one by one. For example, I told you LinkedIn is one of the SNS battlefields.

  • Is it really difficult to do foreign trade now?

    Let me tell you a story. It is not a story either, because it is my own experience, but in my opinion it is representative. Recently, I was inquiring for a product, and it took me 12 days to push the price up, and the price was twice that of my peers. The price of the identical product, which is 1688, was 26 yuan in the domestic trade department of their company. But through Ali International Station, they were asked by the foreign trade department for an inquiry, and the price they got was 8.50 US dollars. Moreover, this foreign trade salesman did not quote FOB, and still gave me an EXW price when I specifically asked for FOB price. What’s the use? After this incident, I was feeling that the differences in individual abilities are really different. Even the difference of thinking is a long distance. 01. A tiring inquiry Let me tell you the whole story. I posted my original mail, leaving behind the product and company information. Let’s take a look: Dear Kerry, My name is Timothy….
