“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!

  • 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. To tell the truth, I am very sorry for her. Let’s look at his question first: How do you do, Mr. Yi Bing? I have recently encountered a very bad thing and would like to ask you for some advice.

  • What are the daily jobs of foreign trade salesmen?

    The daily work of foreign trade salesmen includes necessary publicity, finding customers, writing letters, returning mails, and taking orders. However, many salesmen neglect a very important job: collecting buyers’ information and feeding it back to the company. Some people may think that the company is not good to me and the salary is not high. why should I do these jobs for the company? In fact, it’s a big mistake to have this idea, because these jobs are actually done for yourself. As sales personnel, we can have the most direct contact with customers’ needs. If there are any needs that we cannot meet, we may lose our orders. If there are no orders, there will be no performance. Therefore, we are the most direct victims. If you are often eliminated due to a specific requirement, you will only complain that the company does not support you, does not give you the necessary conditions, and the products are not effective. Have you ever reflected on yourself and made efforts for the improvement of the company? Some things will be better…

  • 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….

  • 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.

  • Do you have 4 good habits to double foreign trade performance?

    Excellent people are basically similar. The similarity here does not mean growth experience, environment and personal background. They all have some similar “good habits”. The following is a summary of some excellent habits they have. They have enough confidence Many salespeople hate one thing, which is the personal performance indicators issued by the company. Facing these performance indicators, I feel very nervous. In the face of these performance indicators, I am not happy in my heart, and feel that I have been restricted by these indicators, affecting my daily mood. However, these people who do well in sales are “exceptional”. No matter how many performance indicators the company gives them, it does not affect their confidence. They have their own work rhythm, and what they think about is not the numbers given by the company, but how to subdivide the performance indicators into daily ones, and then make daily work arrangements according to their own situation. For example, the rest time, study time and the number of customers visited are all done step by step every day. They do things…

  • [Foreign Trade Experience] Where are the cattle for those foreign traders with high salaries?

    Do you still remember why you chose to do foreign trade? Many people are attracted by the high salary and “scenery” of the foreign trade industry. But when it was really done, it was not as easy as imagined. In the days when there are no orders, anxiety and pain have become a common problem for foreign traders. I’m sorry for this job if I don’t talk in person. “Life is so hard and orders are few. Do I have any future?” No matter what kind of work you do, it is normal to encounter difficulties, but most people just focus on anxiety and pain instead of focusing on solving this problem. Understand that suffering is not a stumbling block, and the pain that cannot kill you will eventually lead to a better you. The road of life will not go in vain; every step counts. Look at the people who were similar to you, what they went through and finally won a high salary and lived your ideal future. 01 Brother A: Four years of foreign trade, from Xiaobai…
