I. Making Good Use of Tools to Develop Customers Efficiently When developing customers, we can use tools to help us develop customers more efficiently and accurately.

1. WhatsApp-Instant Messaging WhatsApp is an ideal marketing tool with more than 1.5 billion monthly active users. It can accurately reach our audience, promote our brand or product, and communicate with the public in real time. Its main functions are:

1) Broadcasting This tool has a broadcast function on it. We can send marketing information to all the telephone numbers we add through its broadcast function, but the number is limited. It can be sent to 256 contacts at most. The replies to the information are one-to-one, and only the customers can see it.

For example, we open the software, enter the dialogue page, click the [Contact] button, then press a [Friend] for a long time to enter the editing state, click the [New Broadcast] button at the top right to add at least two group friends, and click [Open] after adding the recipients.

2) group function It also has the function of grouping, creating groups and developing customers more accurately and efficiently. For example, when creating a group, we can add existing contacts to the group, or we can create empty groups, and then on other social platforms, users can click on the links we share to directly enter, so that customers who are interested in products can automatically join the group we create. In the group, you can share wonderful pictures, videos and preferential information with your team members, which is the most effective way to build brand trust and popularity. Different from Facebook group, WhatsApp group has no way to add it through search, only member invitation, which to some extent ensures that competitors will not poach our core users.

3) Tips for Finding Potential Customers After understanding its functions, let’s introduce a method to quickly find the WhatsApp account number of potential customers. For example, the key word of our product is LED, and the platform we are looking for is instagram. We can search LED and Integxt: WhatsApp Site: http://instagram.com in Google browser, and we can see the WhatsApp of the customer. Copy the account number and directly search and add it in the software.

Tips~: led and http://instagram.com can be replaced by the keywords and platform website we want to query.

2. Thomasnet-List of the Most Complete Companies in the United States Thomasnet is the largest and most comprehensive list of US companies. The target market is mainly US companies. It can help us search all registered US customer information. Of course, we can also send messages directly to the customer mailbox on the customer company page, that is, send letters directly to the customer mailbox and upload attachments. For example, the product catalog, product pictures or company introductions can be sent up to 25M and sent together. If the customer is interested in our products, the probability of reply will be very high.
Operation method: First enter official website, enter the product keywords or company name and brand name in the search field, click to enter a company page, where we can see the product classification, company introduction, website address, address, phone number, etc., and finally click to contact the supplier.

3. Google Map Google Map is a sub-product of Google. It includes a series of functions such as 3D function, Google Earth, weather layer, voice search, in-store display function, Google Map bus route function, in-house map function, etc. We can search and develop foreign customers through some of its functions.

We first open Google’s homepage, click on the product list in the upper right corner, select “map”, enter the map, and then enter the country we need to select. After the selection is completed, enter the keywords of our product, such as led, in the search box. From the search results displayed on the map, we can find the industry distribution of this product in the selected area, and then analyze the key markets of our product in the local area. The red dots displayed are the shops and suppliers related to led, which are actually our potential customers.

For example, if we choose one of the stores, the information of the store will be displayed in the left column, including address, website, phone number and even email information. More intuitively, we can look at the surrounding business environment through the function of “street view” and analyze its customer groups, which is helpful for us to develop it in a targeted way.
Second, the search engine has skills Here, I’d like to introduce some effective ways to find foreign customers in practice and share them with you.

1. When searching for customers, we can search for buy+product name in the browser;

2. Price+ Product Name. Some of the information obtained through this method can often enable you to find many retailers and distributors selling products online, and some of the search results are some market reports and articles on product prices. If it is relatively new data can be used as a reference;

3. Put quotation marks on key words. How to operate: Search for “Product Name importers” or “Product Name Importers” and enter quotation marks together when typing.

Using the above search method can help us find the purchase information that may be ignored by us, and can help us remove some of the messy information so as to find more accurate customers.

The above is the method of customer development introduced to you. Please try it quickly.

  • What about the loss of foreign trade customers? Remedy by mail

    Recently, a small partner and I talked about the loss of customers. His website sells kitchen utensils and cleaning products. From monthly statistics, we know that the website traffic and orders are not bad, but the re-purchase rate is low. A considerable number of customers have not placed another order after buying it once or twice. We analyzed and ruled out the cause of the website itself, and found that he did not have a kind of consciousness to actively maintain customer relations.For customers who have purchased commodities, they actually recognize your products and websites. Of course, some non-essential items will not be purchased frequently, but we should not ignore the purchasing potential of these lost customers.

  • What if the foreign trade bill of lading is lost? How to solve and deal with it?

    A bill of lading is a document that proves that the contract of carriage of goods by sea and the goods have been received or loaded by the carrier, as well as the carrier’s proof to deliver the goods. Since goods can only be extracted by bill of lading, bill of lading is of great significance in international trade, especially under FOB and CFR conditions, and is considered as the representative and symbol of goods. However, because only one set of bills of lading can be issued for one bill of lading, and the bills of lading are negotiable documents at the same time, the loss of the bills of lading will have a great impact on the development of foreign trade business, which may lead to the seller unable to settle the foreign exchange and the buyer unable to take delivery of the goods. With the continuous growth of China’s import and export trade, this kind of loss has occurred frequently in foreign trade companies recently. How should we deal with the loss of the bill of lading?

  • Foreign trade case: a fluke psychology may let you lose customers from now on

    I have always stressed with you that it is very important to build trust between suppliers and customers. In order to maintain this trust, we need extreme professionalism and mastery of every detail. I think most of my friends are serious about their work, but there is no denying the fact that sometimes some friends will inevitably get lucky. This is extremely unfavorable to the relationship between suppliers and customers. Once problems arise, trust can easily collapse. When the time comes, it will be very difficult to recover the customers. 01, lucky psychology let cooperation fell through Some time ago, a friend lost a big customer because of his lucky psychology.
