  • 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…

  • 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 working for a year and have been in two companies. Basically, apart from Ali platform, there are no resources inclined to me, and the company is not even sure about the quality of the factory. Now I quit my job, but I still want to engage in foreign trade. I don’t know how to choose a suitable company for myself.

  • Who are suitable for foreign trade

    Many people like to ask the old foreign trade when they are not in the trade. Is foreign trade good? Can I do a good job in foreign trade like this? Did you start from scratch when you changed industries? What if you didn’t choose your product at first? How to deal with unscrupulous local bosses? All questions can be answered in one sentence: true love is invincible! I have always felt that, apart from luck, a successful person in the secular sense should have two characteristics, good at thinking and good at acting.People who are good at thinking have definite goals and will pave the way for themselves in advance, and they know what they like. People who are good at action will implement it immediately when they have a direction. Execution is the productive force. I am not a major related to foreign trade. With my love for foreign trade, I have stepped into the door of foreign trade. The reason why I have lived to this day and am still living well is mainly because the “direction”…

  • 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…

  • A new scam is coming! Foreign Traders Should Be Alert

    The flowing water pattern, the iron-clad deception. Some swindlers are setting a trap by taking advantage of the seller’s eagerness to make a deal. Please keep your eyes open! Today, let’s list some tricks, hoping to avoid unnecessary losses for everyone. 01, cheat test fee The fraudster posing as a Malaysian buyer is currently experiencing a fierce “performance” attack. Several foreign traders reported meeting him at the Fubu Forum. Some people are alert and some have already been recruited. Specific typical “set up” way is like this: The swindler claimed to be a Malaysian buyer and showed his purchasing intention. He asked you to send a catalogue to order a cabinet after specifying a product and asked you to send samples to a testing company in Guangzhou for testing. The samples are worthless, and the cheater’s main purpose is to cheat the testing fee. Some sellers are eager to make the order. Even if they have doubts in their hearts, they feel that the inspection fee of 1,000-2,000 yuan is not a big problem, so they pay for the inspection….

  • 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. No matter from the product, to the company, to the market understanding professionalism, or service attitude, way of…

  • Foreign Traders Want to Win Customers? We’ll talk about positioning first

    I don’t know how many friends know about positioning. Positioning is a very important link in foreign trade. If you don’t find out your own position and randomly recommend and develop non-target customers, you will not only waste your own time, but also your customers’ time. The products of many friends are good in all aspects, but because of unclear positioning, many opportunities have been missed. Why do you say that? 01. How to Find Breakthrough Points Without Price Advantage A student stepped on such a pit before. Let’s take a look at his problem first: Bingda, I recently contacted a colleague’s customer and they are still cooperating. I know the price of our peers is lower than ours, but I think our quality is better, so I still want to fight for the chance. I directly quoted the price of similar products with the customer, but the customer replied that our price was too high. Later, I made a comparison table between our products and those of our peers, in which we listed the list of materials we used…
