Expand your Marketability through the Chinese Consumer Market

Photo by Akson on Unsplash

Following the jarring year that was 2020, the Chinese market, both locally and globally, has been the first to show stronger economic recovery compared to other major markets. Take the chance to leverage on over one billion potential customers by developing your business and promotion strategy through honing your business acumen towards Chinese speaking customers.

SCCIOB offers a wide range of programmes that tackle the challenges of a Chinese speaking audience which include developing skillsets to effectively promote and present business plans such as How to Write a Business Proposal, Business Negotiation and Effective Presentation Skills programmes. 

For those taking the first step towards approaching a Chinese speaking audience, Gearing Up to be Cross-Culturally Effective and Understanding Mindsets and Markets of the New China Economy are great starters to gain an understanding of how Chinese speaking audiences differ from the general English speaking demographics that most people are already familiar with.

With the younger generation becoming more internet-savvy, it's critical that businesses turn their marketing focus towards social media and social applications that serve as the new platform that these potential customers get their product information from. From Weibo to Wechat, as well as the more internationally used Facebook and Instagram, being able to connect with the Chinese audience through these platforms is a must. Our Compelling Chinese Copywriting for Social Media aims to do just that by presenting the key points in writing social media copy in Chinese and presenting it to this new-age audience.

Online payment systems are also a key factor in helping businesses enable quick turnaround when making a sale and the Adopting Mobile Payments to Seize Chinese Business Opportunities and Expanding Your Business in China through Online Platforms programmes provide the understanding you need to get started.

In the B2B sphere, SCCIOB also provides programmes to help you and your business understand the finer naunces of dealing with Chinese speaking suppliers and/or distributors such as our Business Mandarin Specialising in Financial and Accounting Terms and Reading a Set of Financial Accounts that help to bridge gaps and ensure all parties are on the same page during negotiations or closing the deal.

It's never too late to develop the right skills to extend or pivot your marketing efforts to promote your business or product to the growing Chinese market.
