Want to grow your business in Chinese market?

The Chinese market is not just trading in China and in the past.

Your local market now has access to Chinese market.

This is due to;

  • Chinese international trading over the internet,
  • Chinese delegations traveling world-wide for trade and education,
  • Chinese people on holiday exporting the world and returning to China with gifts of expletive banded products,

You on longer need to visit China to trade with China.

If you are serious about China, you need to be visible on the Internet in China!

For your consideration

In working with businesses in North America, Asia and Europe I feel the importance of the internet has been lost on many companies trading locally and world-wide trading.

The internet is often seen as something your business needs a presence on and not the main point in which to start trading. Maybe we saw it as something that was important in the 90’s but we have move on, that was yesterday idea!

This is not the case; the birth of the internet was as important as the birth of the printing press. Like the printing press, the internet is finding different uses very quickly given that the internet, like the printing press, enables faster commutation of information. If the printing press gave access to towns and cities., the internet gives us access to the world.   

There has been a world-wide change in the use of the internet which has been developing over the last 10 years.

The USA has leads the way, “if you are not online you not trading”. This is followed by China, not Europe, with number of users over 800 million and growing. The developing markets of Africa and South America will follow soon.

There has been a growing and changing use of the internet driven by the youth of the world over. 20 years ago, TV, books, newspapers were the main sources of information. Today the growing demands for information, educations and purchases is supplied by the internet.

There is now a generation which grew up with the internet and is working in business. They are changing the way in which we trade locally and international. This change is so great that your local market now has direct access to the international market.

This change is not a “Big Bang” but the changes are happening daily and are often missed by business.

Based on our company extensive knowledge we suggest the following key issues need to be considered;

  • Be seen on the internet world-wide. What services on the internet have been developed recently? Can new services help to grow your business or are they going to take control away from your business?
  • The amount of information being collected has given birth to the term “Big Data”. How can you put this information to use for our business?
  • With each passing generation the world-wide knowledge grows. The world-wide demand for education and training is growing fast along with the growing populations. Is your business seen as a source for information?
  • The world-wide control of distribution channels. The use of the internet enables people to access products and services faster. New big businesses are keen to manage and control access to products and services. Do these new businesses create new business opportunities or effect your current trading?

Chinese Internet Firewall

 

Chinese authorities’ manager the contents of internet in China. This is often called the Great Chinese Firewall by the overseas press and businesses.

Many of Chinese internet rules and regulation protect the users and consumers.

While there are many views if this is a good or bad thing we recommend if wish to do business with another part of the world you need to respect local rules and regulations.

Generally these are the areas not available in China

  • Political commits - some political commits are not allowed. This not as regulated as in the pass. Increasingly Chinese social media is used for news information and not overseas website. Most international news is available in China but not read
  • Social Media - most of the international social media is blocked in China. The exception to this is LinkedIn which is business social media.
  • Pornographic - not allow on the internet in China.
  • Google - Most products and services from Google while not blocked they are so slow to access in makes them unusable.

In the business world, which Access to China focuses on, the restrictions on overseas Social Media and Google can slow /stop your internet contents from being seen.

Overseas internet content is blocked by IP address. While this allows for to control access to specific websites it does allow control of contents within a website. Therefore, Social Media site are blocked full.

In the case of overseas Social Media most is not accessible from China

social icons sm

These at the time of writing are examples of international social media accessible / not accessible from China in changes from time to time.

Another example is where a Social Media is not accessible in China but there is replacement like product available.

you tube to YouKu

While YouTube is not available in China. There is many “like” services available in China. The biggest of which is YouKu. In this example you can take your business videos and load them to YouKu.

YouKu is like YouTube with advents often interrupting the screening of your video.

In business website YouTube / YouKu while a quick method of loading a video, embedding the video inside your website will require more work normally but will gives better results.

This is example of where the Chinese "Like" product is better than the oversea products due to local performance issues in mainland China.

dropbox baidu

Dropbox is available in mainland China. The download speed of the data from Dropbox is very slow in China. The better solution is Baidu Pan, which is now part of Baidu Cloud services’.

While the loading of the data be Baidu Pan maybe be slower from outside China, the access speed in China is fast.

In China while many of the overseas Social Media not available there are many local Chinese replacements.

This bring me to the last and most important group of services not available in China: internet contents / tools services supplied by Google.

google sevices

Above is some examples of Google not available in China. This statement is technical not correct. Google services are available in China but they are slow down to response time of minutes. This results in website using Google service take 5 to 10 minutes to load. To confuse things a little more sometimes they work and some days they do not work.

Example: Google Fonts - many website use Google fonts for formatting the text etc. If you are using Google Fonts, loaded from a Google server, some days your website will not load under 5 minutes!

This applies to all Google services; email, maps, photos, website analysis, etc.

Your services can help to resolve these issues. We recommend you start with Our Testing Services
