Lack of customers in foreign trade? In fact, the thinking is too narrow

Recently, it is the peak season for foreign trade. Many foreign trade companies are busy with their orders. But there are also few customers who worry about it. What is better in our business is that we serve more customers and have more knowledge. What I often hear is: our business is not good, our business is special, and our business has few customers. This is a typical way of developing customers without opening their minds.

Lack of customers in foreign trade? In fact, the thinking is too narrow
Lack of customers in foreign trade? In fact, the thinking is too narrow

For example, there is a copper carving customer who uses Ding Yi to develop foreign carpet dealers and gardening companies. Because customers who make long red carpets have to put handicraft decorations on both sides of the carpets, the isolated carpets are not of good quality. Garden design companies not only plant trees, but also put statues. This is like the current popularity of the small B market. Furniture dealers have begun to develop individual designers in foreign trade. Although their products are scattered, the volume is still quite large at the end of the year.

To do foreign trade, to do small, can only do foreign peer market, more do smaller. However, if we go further, we can achieve the downstream market. If you want to expand your development ideas, first of all, you need to know what is the circulation after my products are exported to foreign countries? As long as it is run by the company, there will definitely be opportunities for cooperation. Second, it should be extended to other industries. For example, daily necessities can be used as gifts, clothing customization can be done by clubs, lighting can be done by designers and lighting installations, raw materials can be directly connected with factories, semi-finished products can be used for downstream matching, and mechanical products can be directly found in factories.

The machinery industry may be the industry with the narrowest customers, but tengzhou zhongying machinery co., ltd. is mainly engaged in Swiss numerical control machine tools. as a longtime customer, it has not been short of orders. it can be seen from the inquiry they shared that a company that does not even give up the development of agents as a “second-hand machinery dealer” cannot possibly lack customers. Not to mention so many terminal manufacturing industries.

  • 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…

  • 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…

  • 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…
