Frankly speaking, for all foreign traders, including myself, the most important thing is ability and performance.
We stay up late every day to work overtime and even have a high fever. We have to go to the company to check the mail and reply to the customers first. Without looking at the computer for a day, we feel very insecure, as if we have lost our soul.
Accompany your boyfriend/girlfriend to go shopping, chat, and pick up your cell phone from time to time to see if there are any new inquiries or replies from customers in your mailbox, lest you miss anything.
To do foreign trade, one has to sit and run a company every day instead of running around.
Do foreign trade, hiding in the house every day, don’t have to wind, sun, rain.
Under such a seemingly comfortable job, it is actually the bitterness that foreign trade people cannot say.
During the peak sales season, the factory is busy. We have to go to help and pack overnight.
If the goods are out of order and the customer is angry, we will be scolded without saying a word.
The boss said no matter what, we should smile cheekily and offer feasible solutions while pacifying.
The reason for all this is to get more orders and to improve our performance, because only in this way can our income be increased. After all, the basic salary is far from satisfying our appetite.
Many foreign trade professionals have been working for three to five years, seven to eight years, but their performance has not improved much. What causes them to do worse and worse?
Changing jobs and trades frequently Some foreign traders frequently change jobs and trades because of their personal ability or company problems, resulting in their accumulated resources being abandoned repeatedly and having to start over every time.
Such a vicious circle virtually increases the pressure on one’s own performance. After a slight improvement, one will be abandoned. How can one talk about development?
It is ok to change jobs, but the salary must be improved qualitatively, and you must also change jobs because you are excellent and choose a better platform, instead of finding another one to continue to mix.
It is possible to change jobs and try not to change industries, so that the accumulated knowledge and resources can be used.
Old customers die hard and orders are continuously lost.
Many people only rely on the old customers at hand to eat and knock on old customers, and the old customers are also running away for various reasons (or the delivery date is delayed repeatedly, or the products have serious quality problems, or after-sales treatment is improper, etc.).
For foreign traders, whether it is the ability to develop new customers or the ability to maintain old customers, it is actually of vital importance.
After-sales disputes cannot be handled properly, and old customers will quickly drain away. If we don’t develop new customers, we can’t repair the loss of old customers.
Finally, their performance and income can only continue to shrink, getting worse and worse.
Don’t study, thinking and ability lag behind It is not difficult for you to find that there are some foreign trade people around you who pretend to be very good even though their abilities are limited. They do not learn this or do that. Those who cannot do it themselves think it is impossible, and they are never willing to believe and try other people’s successful schemes.
In fact, this is their own limit to the development of their thinking and ability, so it is difficult to achieve success.
Just like many people cling to Alibaba platform, the real problem is clearly that the channel is single and there are not many orders, but they do not want to believe in other methods, preferring to spend hundreds of thousands more to burn traffic.
You asked him to try LinkedIn. He said it was a workplace social platform. Can it develop customers (get rid of Ali, I won 40 million orders); You asked him to try Google. He said that he had tried it, but he couldn’t find anything at all. Can he develop it to customers? “It turns out Google searches customers so easily and accurately”) Poor people must be hateful. They are always looking for various excuses for their failure and are unwilling to face the reality.
Foreign trade performance and foreign trade ability can definitely not be achieved by staying up late every day to work overtime until 1 or 2 am, or by mixing in the foreign trade industry for 3 to 5 years or 7 to 8 years.
Foreign traders “more efforts, more luck”?
Foreign traders “become more popular as they get older”?
Don’t give yourself chicken soup any more. If you don’t have the ability, everything will be white and blind!
“Natural selection, survival of the fittest”, in any industry, keep learning, are the most critical factors to ensure their survival and not be eliminated; Believe, can get change, don’t believe, will never get change; A wise man believes first and sees later. Ordinary people believe it only after seeing it. Stupid people saw it and did not believe it.
