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.

  • From foreign trade salesman to boss, I rely on this

    If one word is used to describe the foreign trade industry, then this word should be “busy”.

  • 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. For example, I told you LinkedIn is one of the SNS battlefields. You need to improve information, add contacts, publish daily updates, publish articles, publish company pages, publish product pages and other ways to actively or passively…

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • Do you have any achievements in foreign trade? Just because you have these problems

    Today, I’d like to talk to you about what kind of foreign trade salesmen fail to produce results. To tell the truth here, I know that I will offend many people because I will expose the scars of many people. Most people are more ostrich-minded and unwilling to face it. The failure to achieve results is mainly due to lack of initiative. Foreign trade salesmen with poor performance like holidays and do not know that social competition is fierce. He calculated how to be lazy and did as many things as the company paid him. He refused to do more. He felt cheated if he paid a little. He felt that he spent his own money to learn that the increase in sales was also more than the company earned. His heart was unbalanced. To do foreign trade, one must endure high-intensity work, rather than quit and rest after a short period of work. Foreign trade is not too idle, idle for a long time, a little hard thought in desperately. Don’t say that you will try your best, work…

  • 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? There…
