Be an independent foreign trade station, avoid many pits, and easily get customers, even Xiaobai knows all about it

Go to the internet to search for foreign trade websites, and the search results have hundreds of pages. It took hundreds of thousands of dollars to build the station easily in a few days, and it took tens of thousands of days to cooperate with the station building company to make the result. How to distinguish the good from the bad in the station building company? What pits do independent stations have that need our attention?

Be an independent foreign trade station, avoid many pits, and easily get customers, even Xiaobai knows all about it

Some foreign trade SOHO will choose to set up their own stations because it costs less, but they will start to wait for inquiries after the stations are built. can they really wait?

Many small and medium-sized foreign trade enterprises will find a professional station building company to do it. After maintenance for a period of time, they cannot see the effect and give up.

Should we give up? How to let the website play its value?

We will discuss these issues in the following articles.

1. Why do so many people have to be independent stations?

(1) Independence Can have their own independent domain name, independent brand, independent page, etc., more can reflect the enterprise’s own brand image and strength, let customers to the enterprise brand recognition and trust. When network users encounter problems, they often find answers through search engines in the first place. When looking for suppliers, foreign businessmen will also search Google first. The website is the first impression of foreign businessmen, even if your company is small, but if the website is well done, foreign businessmen will think you are very powerful.

(2) Guarantees At present, there are more and more platform rules. Even if one day the products cannot be sold because of the platform rules, there are no so-called rules for independent stations. It is up to you to decide.

(3) Profit A large number of peers have gathered in the platform, and in order to obtain more resources in the limited flow of the platform, it is bound to need to give profits to the platform, such as competitive advertising and ranking within the platform. At the same time, it is also necessary to give profits to buyers to obtain orders at low prices. If this vicious cycle continues, sellers will sooner or later have no profit space and exit the market.

(4) Exclusive customers Have your own independent website, the customer resources of the website are entirely your own. Through the analysis of the customer’s visit to the website data, you can more effectively cooperate with your marketing promotion of the website. Moreover, for the resources of old customers, the loyalty and viscosity of users can be enhanced through independent stations, so as to better retain old customers.

2. Do you want to do it yourself or do you want to outsource it to the station building company?

In fact, it depends on the budget. Self-built websites edit the structure and functions of websites themselves. They are easy to use and low in price, but there are many problems that are not conducive to marketing. Custom stations are outsourced to station builders. Websites are more suitable for marketing, but the price is slightly higher. It is suggested to make customizations. After all, to be an independent station is to have traffic. Customized websites are easier to maintain and optimize later.

Judging from the rules collected by Google, it is difficult to obtain the weight and flow of repeated content, and the templates used in self-built stations are often used by many businesses. From a functional point of view, the function of the self-built station depends on the platform, and only some functions of the platform can be used. If the function is further developed, the cost may not be much different from that of the customized station. Moreover, there is no way to solve the BUG on the website by yourself. It may be several hundred to thousands to find a professional person to change it once, which is also expensive.

If it is done through the self-built station platform, there is a special note: do not infringe.

Here is a case:

In January 2016, the Chinese wedding dress industry was sued by the U.S. District Court. More than 3,000 Chinese enterprises were affected by the incident. Both the domain names of independent websites and those linked to Godaddy in the United States were transferred, and PayPal accounts were frozen pending the judgment of the U.S. District Court. The final result, whether it was a loss-making settlement or an accidental injury, has dealt an almost devastating blow to independent websites.

The main reasons for this incident are: infringement of pictures, design embezzlement, imitation of cards, etc.

3. How to distinguish station builders?

Just like before we cooperate with foreign businessmen, we should first look at the quality, then at the price and finally at the strength of the company. Quality comes first, because what we want to do is to have a website with traffic, not to build a station for the sake of building a station. Price can be integrated with the same level of companies offer, combined with various website parameters to make a comparison. The strength of the company is very important. It is often seen in Fubu that Foreign Trade SOHO has found a small station building company to build a website. The website has not been finished yet, the company is gone, and people have run away.

In addition, find a professional foreign trade station builder, not a station builder. Foreign trade websites and domestic websites are not only different in language. Those who specialize in foreign trade websites all have stable foreign server partners, while those who mainly build domestic websites may not be as good as the former in terms of server supply. In addition, the domestic stations focus more on the collection of Baidu, 360 and sogou, while the foreign trade stations focus more on the optimization of Google.

4. What pits should be avoided when it comes to websites?

(1) “500 can build a station”

Let’s first understand the cost structure of the website: domain name labor and technology cost server The cost of domain names is relatively low, followed by servers, and the highest is the technical cost of labor. As far as I know, The average foreign server costs more than 1,000 a year. If 500 can build a station, it must be that many buyers share a server, and the space and performance will be greatly reduced. If a website is not opened within 8 seconds, 87% of the customers will be lost.

Therefore, when you are tempted by the low price, you should remind yourself that the website is built to obtain the traffic of search engines. If the other party’s software and hardware are defective, how can the website be better?

(2) “Our website supports intelligent AI translation in 100 national languages.”

There are always people who like to be associated with “AI” and “big data” during publicity, thinking that they can scare each other. In fact, most station building service providers use plug-ins in the language database, which have been written long ago and put in free code communities for everyone to use, because there is no commercial value, there is no update and maintenance, and the translation standard cannot be guaranteed. Therefore, what really needs attention should be: is this translation service in commercial operation? For example, I know of a company whose translation is in cooperation with professional paid translators. The construction company has already paid a considerable amount of translation phrases, which is enough for foreign trade companies to use later.

(3) Is the construction of small language stations a language switch?

The last question mentioned the translation plug-in, this kind of website language switching can really improve the experience of visitors from different countries, but the small language building station is not only the language switching, domain name switching is equally important. Small language itself is to adapt to localized marketing, if the corresponding domain name is not localized, it will also reduce the search display. Just like Google search in different countries and regions, there are domain names in local languages.

(4) Can I make an inquiry after I have made a website?

To be sure, if the website is ready, it will not be maintained or optimized, and it will seldom come to inquire. Choosing a professional website builder is also to make the website more convenient for our later maintenance and optimization. However, it is not the station builder who can wait for the inquiry after completing the website. Therefore, to give full play to the value of the website, it is necessary to maintain the website or promote the website. These are the problems that I have summarized about independent foreign trade stations.

  • 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?

    Recently, a foreign trade person joined a company as a foreign trade manager and found himself taking over a mess after joining the company. Because the former foreign trade manager took the team and the customers with him when he left. although everyone left, the company’s platform still serves the former foreign trade manager more or less now! Why do you say that? Because the former foreign trade manager added picture links to more than 1,000 pieces of product information on the platform and linked them to the website platform he privately established. Before, the more important customer information was deleted, leaving behind some useless or low-quality customer information. The whole foreign trade department of the company can be said to be directly paralyzed. The boss stamped his feet in anger and cursed shamelessly!

  • 99% of foreign trade newcomers are following the “Order Death Book”

    Foreign trade seems simple, but in fact it is extremely complicated. It is not as easy as some new people think. In other words, you can string up the whole foreign trade process with a few simple paragraphs or a hand drawing to form the overall framework of the foreign trade business, but you can hardly finish or learn all the details of all links in very little time, and each link in foreign trade is very important, closely linked and linked. Just like some people ask me: how does lingying ( linkedin ) play? How does Google develop its customers? Believe me, it’s really not that I don’t want to spend a few minutes telling you, but that I don’t have so much free time to explain to you one by one, because your problems will go on endlessly, one by one.

  • How can foreign trade make customers repeat orders?

    There are tens of millions of ways to do foreign trade, but if the foreign trade customers can make one order after another, the foreign trade people need to make more efforts, study strategies, and use unique ways to do foreign trade to tap the customers’ potential orders. Some people once said that foreign customers are hens, orders are eggs, and foreign trade salesmen are breeders. The breeder usually expects the hen to lay eggs every day, so he will often touch the hen’s bottom to see if the hen can lay eggs today. However, it is not enough to touch the bottom of the hen to lay more eggs. The breeder may have to make the hen eat better, let a cock keep company with it every day, or turn on the lights before it is light … The same is true for foreign trade salesmen. If foreign customers want to place more orders, they must pay more attention, study strategies and take some measures to tap their potential orders.Actively recommend other products to customers Top Sales: after new…
