The Chinese market is the largest in the world and is snowballing. So, it has become the biggest priority for businesses to start selling their products in China.
However, there is no one-size-fits-all solution to entering the Chinese market successfully. The most efficient way to enter the Chinese market varies on your industry.
Localize Your Business in China
Ignoring cultural and political sensitivity will be dangerous if you want to map your business to a vast market in light of an upsurge in patriotism. Instead, it would help if you had a solid understanding of your audience and the local market. Your business will survive and thrive if you set up a dedicated team with knowledge of the local language and culture, create a product or service relevant to the local market, and develop a marketing campaign that will resonate with your target audience. So, businesses must pick the right partners and distributors for their products to enter the Chinese market.
The first step is determining your business’s goals and objectives in China and your target demographic. Once you have this information, you can map out the best course of action to achieve your goals.
1. Pick the right products/brands to sell in China. If you already have one, that’s great; otherwise, find one suitable for Chinese customers.
2. Find the best distributor/partners to help you sell it across China.
3. Ensure your product has FOB prices fixed by the distributor so that you don’t lose money on shipping and taxes when selling it to your customers in China.
4. Don’t forget to localize your product by translating it into Chinese and adding some basic information like how to use it or care instructions etc. on your product’s packaging/label so that Chinese customers are comfortable using it without reading any instructions/manuals printed in English or any other language first.
Marketing Channels & Marketplaces
The second step is to find the market channel right for your business. Youtube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Linkedin, Quora, WhatsApp, Snapchat, Tiktok, and many others are blocked. You will need knowledge of popular social media networks in China, such as Douyin, Toutiao, Redbook China, and Weibo.
To run eCommerce, you must be ready for totally different platforms. Amazon, eBay, Wish, and Etsy prevail in your country, but the eCommerce ecosystem’s fragmented platforms are different in China. While Tmall, JD and Pinduoduo are three major marketplaces, Wechat Shop and Douyin Shop are popular platforms for foreigners to access the market.
