You have a China 2019 strategy?
As the Chinese New Year (中国新年) approaches I would like to remind you that the festivities 2019 kick off on Feb 4th night and last 15 days, until the full moon arrives with the Lantern Festival. During this time it is a must to send best wishes to clients or friends in China, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines etc.
The new year is always a good time for reflections and as the Chinese market changes so rapidly you can never really be overly prepared.
Here a few general advises you can add to your experience.
- Beside having specialists, learn daily about language and cultural nuances.
- Focus on mentality, read about the traditional philosophy as they dominate the reactions of your prospective clients.
- Watch different lifestyle trends of target regions or cities.
- Maintain a separate website on a local server or mirror the western one locally
- Build local teams and hire local agencies
- Get knowledge on the most important Apps in China
- Maintain active communities on Weibo and WeChat
- Expand to more local e-commerce platforms as your effort never will reach 100%
- Focus your team on new trendy Starlet Apps (Douyin, Little Red Book)
- Have a dedicated team ready to respond on changes
- Calculate that some product lines you produced have to be sold elsewhere as suddenly some law changes.
- … and even more.
It was a pleasure to frame this topic and to advise you. Let me wish you:
(Good luck and great success in the coming New Year. | pinyin: zhù láinián hǎoyùn, bìng qǔdé gèng dà de chéngjiù.) 1904p
lit: advisers open the door, you enter by yourself.Note: pinyin: shī fu lǐng jìn mén, xiū xíng zài gè rén.
