“Foreign trade income is low, why don’t you switch careers early?” Please, don’t tease.

As a foreign trader, everyone knows that in the field of foreign trade, only if you do your business well can you get more commission and earn more money, and your performance is the final dignity of a foreign trade salesman!

"Foreign trade income is low, why don't you switch careers early?" Please, don't tease.
“Foreign trade income is low, why don’t you switch careers early?” Please, don’t tease.

Well done, there are hundreds of thousands, hundreds of thousands or even more in a year (some people have outstanding abilities, taking a few big orders every year, one order can be made into tens of millions, deduct a percentage from a sum of money, calculate yourself, ability = money); If you don’t do a good job, you can only get a dead salary of several thousand dollars a month and tens of thousands of dollars a year (some companies stipulate that you can only get a commission if your order exceeds a certain amount every month. Of course, even if there is no such stipulation, if your performance is too low, you will not get much commission).

Many people have worked for many years, but due to their ability problems, their performance has not improved much, and their orders are very few, and they are all very small. The largest orders are tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars, and the commission is even less, only eight hundred dollars at a time.

Want to know, earn this little money, for an adult, it is just like nothing, may go to a restaurant with friends and family and have no!

However, many people do not start from improving their ability to raise their income. Instead, he chose “another way” and longed to change his income by changing his career.
In fact, no matter which industry you turn to, as long as you still do foreign trade, there will not be much change, because ability is the core problem, can’t find the problem, everything is nonsense!

For example, some people are doing chemical industry, and their performance is poor. They don’t earn much money. They always think it is “company garbage”, “poor products” and “sunset industry”. Therefore, it was changed to the textile industry, and the results were still dismal, with few orders. Then I switched to the hardware industry again, but the result was still no good. The business was a mess!

Frankly speaking, every industry has its own outstanding people, companies and salespeople who have done very well. However, they cannot change their abilities when changing industries, so the poor performance is the inevitable result!

Moreover, I frequently change industries and products, and my previous industry knowledge and customer resources have been wasted. I have to start all over again, which is also very unfavorable for people to find out. Therefore, I generally don’t recommend foreign trade people to change industries frequently, and it is better to find jobs in this industry.

Of course, if you really don’t like the foreign trade industry, you have become discouraged, but if you have a skill, you can completely jump out of the industry. You don’t need to drag on and drag on. If you don’t stop, you will suffer. For example, if you are good at English, then you can try translation, education, international tour guides and other industries. You may not be unable to earn any money. However, you must think clearly and do not change without thinking as soon as your mind is hot.

If one has to “mix food and drink” in the field of foreign trade, one should strive to improve one’s own ability, in order to improve one’s performance and income.
How to improve your foreign trade ability? First of all, we must find out where our problems lie before we can solve them.

You have to think clearly, your performance is poor, no orders, because of what.
–The company does not provide resources (no platform, no exhibition) If the company does not provide channels to obtain inquiries, it can only rely on itself. If it cannot develop, then learn more and practice more –Poor product knowledge Every time we talk about orders with our customers, we are always asked to death by our customers. We cannot talk about placing orders because our customers know more about products than you do, and you seem to know nothing. How do you persuade your customers to place orders? How can the customer rest assured to place the order with you? !
If you want to improve your negotiation ability, first learn solid knowledge of products!

–Company certification is incomplete Some companies have not implemented the necessary product certification in some industries since their establishment, resulting in the disclosure of certificates in the inquiry process of customers and the customers turning away.

Some certifications are necessary for some countries to import. In such cases, we should actively communicate with the managers, clarify the problem, implement them as soon as possible, and avoid delaying and losing more orders.

–Poor negotiation ability The company has a platform or exhibition or other channels to provide salesman inquiries, but because of personal ability problems, it can’t successfully guide customers to place orders every time. I feel that negotiation is not enough and I feel guilty!

Some people don’t even know what their price level is, they don’t know anything about the market, they just tell their customers that “our price is very low”, in fact, they have no idea at all.

Some people have a bad mentality. If customers say anything casually, they panic and believe it. They become confused and make nonsense of themselves, digging holes for themselves.

Some people talk without thinking, regardless of the starting point of the customer’s problems and the appropriateness of their own speaking skills, and always pass on some inappropriate words to the customer, resulting in the loss of orders.

Some people lack independent consciousness and just act as a mouthpiece between “boss”, “factory” and “customer”. Such negotiation is the lowest, because they are completely uncertain about the success or failure of the order.

All of the above problems are actually due to their lack of understanding of the market and products, and the loss of orders due to the lack of negotiation skills. They should learn more independently instead of leaving the pot to the product or the market or the company.

In the foreign trade industry, is wages really very low? No, it’s just that your salary is very low!

  • In foreign trade, I can’t escape these circles after all

    In programming, a program that cannot be terminated by its own control is called a dead loop. English is called endless loop, and there is a movie called looper. The Chinese name “The Ring Messenger” is wonderful. You can look for it. Getting into this cycle is really painful. There are also a large number of such cycles in foreign trade. Of course, some of these cycles may be caused by the parties deceiving themselves and others. To give a few examples: Recruitment and retention mechanism Many companies are just like hotels. People come and go. They are all passers-by. There is a saying called “Iron Battalion and Running Troops”. It is normal for people to come and go, but it is not normal for people to come and go for a long time. It is not normal for an impetuous industry and an impetuous region. There is no need to do a mechanism to retain people if there are fewer people. Without a mechanism to retain people, people cannot be retained!Infinite cycle. It is strange that even birds know…

  • Practical Operation of Foreign Trade: How to Ask Customers’ Views on Quotation

    Under normal circumstances, it is of little use if there is no order to rush, but be sure to ask. Guests interested in your products and company will contact you automatically, regardless of the length of time. If you follow up with customers who are not interested at all, you will not cooperate. At best, you will make a good impression. I follow up half of the time at will and easily, but I have a bottom in my heart whether I am alone or not. Generally speaking, we should pay attention to follow-up and not push customers, which will not cause pressure on customers. First confirm whether the sample has been received. If received, whether there are any questions, etc. Basically, let the customer approve the product before talking about the next step. If the customer is not satisfied, you can send some pictures of products that sell well in the customer market for reference. After sending the sample, you should send an e-mail to the customer and tell him the approximate arrival time. If there is no news…

  • I have been in limbo for more than ten years by foreign trade customers, but I have been brilliant too

    When I first graduated in 2007, most of my classmates went back to their hometown to work. I wrote letters of recommendation to two large companies in Hangzhou, and the result was that I would not recruit new people for the time being. After the failure, I started to blindly submit resumes. Even if I became a bully, I could not find the job I wanted. Finally, in the small corner of Mimi in a pile of recruitment notices in the publicity column of the talent market, I saw a post for a business assistant. I hesitated to look at the name of the company. This is the company that was rejected before. Although I wonder why such a big company put up a job advertisement there, I dream of joining such a big company. So I called the above number and got the interview opportunity. It turned out that the department manager hired the business assistant himself. The first round of interview was his own, and the second round was just one of his British clients and asked him…

  • 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?

  • A foreign trader who has been in business for 2 years has an annual sales volume of nearly 20 million. What makes her?

    As salesmen, will you set goals for yourself? Have you any ambition to become top sales? I think that no one is really willing to be a mediocre person. However, Qian Qian, which is engaged in foreign trade, is still a minority. In fact, all walks of life have such “28 Laws”. It is difficult to make changes if you cannot realize the gap between yourself and the excellent. Recently, Miyou @SherryLi, who has worked in the office for 6 years, lamented that most people are “unprofessional” in the same way when talking about the salesmen he has dealt with over the years. It was not until I met this salesman, who has only been in business for 2 years, that I could not help but want to praise him. … Because of their profession, at least 1,000 foreign trade salesmen have been encountered in recent years. But what really impresses me is not much, because most of the salesmen are similar.
