Since the outbreak of the epidemic, various industries have been hit to varying degrees, among which the tourism industry is the most intuitive. Outbound tourism has dropped by 70% due to epidemic control. It is conservatively estimated that overseas retailers of large, medium, and small entities alone will suffer losses of hundreds of billions and trillions of yuan. The cliff-like decline in revenue has left businesses struggling repeatedly on the edge of bankruptcy and breakout, and how to mitigate the impact has become a difficult problem in front of them.
On the other hand, with an increasingly wealthy population and an increasing number of Chinese tourists, domestic consumer demand for foreign products is constantly increasing, particularly among Chinese consumers of certain goods origin, according to Nielsen research data, Chinese consumers prefer to buy beauty products from France and South Korea, Italian leather shoes and handbags, and health care products from Australia...
In the midst of a retail slowdown in Western countries, an increasing number of global merchants are looking to the rising Chinese market. However, there are other strategic factors involved in the process that extend beyond the creation of an online presence and the translation of the language.
How can overseas businesses develop the Chinese market online?
When foreign companies wish to join the Chinese market through online channels, there are typically two options: open up shop on third-party e-commerce platforms or establish independent stations. If an independent website is to be developed, it is preferable to install the server in China to secure the online mall's flawless functioning in the future. In comparison to traditional import methods, cross-border e-commerce offers less economic risk for foreign merchants, and there is no need to establish local corporations or go through costly registration requirements.
It is simpler to attract Chinese consumers if foreign firms can deliver high-quality items while also doing a good job with online packaging and advertising. Chinese customers' expectations for online purchasing include user experience, simplicity of use on mobile terminals, seamless language, quick payment, and logistical speed.
In order to achieve the best market effect, businesses also need to target the overall marketing budget. In order to communicate more effectively with users, marketing and customer service needs to be localized.
