To develop the North American market, foreign traders must understand this knowledge

In the global consumer market, North America’s purchasing power is second to none, and the import demand is quite large. How can foreign trade abandon the North American market? However, the competition in the North American market is also very fierce, and the supply of products is basically saturated. To develop North American customers, one must be familiar with this market and be good at using some skills and tools in order to have efficient returns.

Combined with years of foreign trade experience, first popularize the characteristics of North American market:

1. Single language and culture Apart from Quebec, Canada, which uses French, English is the common working and living language in North America. Therefore, after work, we should improve our English level and know more about the spoken English commonly used by North Americans.

2. The product quality is top priority North Americans attach great importance to the quality of their products and complain about any mistakes. Therefore, no matter the sample or the final delivery, the quality must be strictly controlled. Americans, in particular, are always most concerned about the quality of goods, followed by packaging and finally price.

3. North American customers have a good reputation.
Generally, payment is made after delivery or a copy of bill of lading is provided, and customs clearance in North America is relatively simple. Some U.S. customers have an interesting feature. They will surprise you. When sending samples, they say they don’t need sample fees, but they will still give you more money. What’s more, if you want him to make a deposit, he will call you the full amount.

4. North American customers mostly like to use Google to search for supplier information.
Therefore, we must manage our websites well, use Google’s trend to select some precise keywords with large search volume, publish more product information on foreign trade websites, improve product exposure and Google ranking of keywords, so that North American customers can see our products when Google searches.

5. UL Certification is required for some products exported to North America For example, building materials, fire protection equipment, heating and ventilation equipment, flammable gas equipment and so on all need UL certification. UL certification is mainly divided into two types, one is C-UL mark (also called ULC) according to Canadian safety requirements; One is the C-UL US sign (also known as CULUS), which meets the safety requirements of both canada and the united states. It depends on which country you export, and of course the safest is Canada and the United States.

6. North Americans pay special attention to festivals, such as Christmas Therefore, before Christmas comes, we can prepare some gifts for the customers and old customers who are in contact with us to close the relationship. Europeans and Americans still attach great importance to details. Maybe a small gift can capture their wavering hearts.

The development of North American customers can help shorten the development time and improve the signing rate with some tools:

North American Free Customs Data: https://www.tradesns.com/business_info.php. Some North American buyers’ names, contact names and contact information can be obtained directly.

  • Foreign trade person, how to improve your inquiry conversion rate

    I have been engaged in foreign trade for more than ten years. The foreign trade market more than ten years ago was quite easy for foreign traders to develop customers, because the market was not so open, saturated and competitive at that time. I am engaged in the garment export industry. At that time, the major garments in the world were made in China. Now this cake has been robbed by Southeast Asian countries. 2005 was the first year when the clothing quota was cancelled. At that time, it was very difficult to find a factory to produce more orders. It is estimated that the post-90s generation does not know what quotas are. Now, by the way, from the 1990s to 2004, many products from China were exported to Europe and the United States. These quotas were basically allocated to state-owned export enterprises. At that time, state-owned export enterprises were really making money. The current foreign trade environment is more competitive than before by dozens or even hundreds of times. However, our current advantage is that we have various Internet…

  • Ten foreign trade companies and nine Hong Kong companies

    Hong Kong Companies’ Assistance to Foreign Trade Hong Kong companies do not need to employ staff in the office space in the process of engaging in foreign trade business, which is very helpful for the initial start-up of foreign trade. At the same time, Hong Kong companies’ help in foreign trade business is also reflected in the following aspects: 1. Hong Kong companies tax returns Hong Kong companies generally file tax returns for the first time 18 months after their establishment and once a year. There are fewer taxes and the tax rate is low. The main tax category is profits tax (16.5%). Companies apply the principle of taxation from regional sources, that is, profits are no longer generated in Hong Kong and profits come from overseas. They can apply for exemption from profits tax, which can achieve the effect of tax relief for foreign trade enterprises. 2.

  • Do you still stay up late or stay up for years to accumulate achievements and abilities in foreign trade?

    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…
