How we work
Our simple and effective work structure provides you with an easy and comprehensive market strategy. We would start by holding an initial meeting, at which we will discuss your business requirements in China and then draw up a business work plan for you. After that:
For companies that are seeking partnership and/or investment in China, we will establish connections in the relevant industries and arrange business meetings/presentations with the potential partners, distributors and investors for you. Your company, product, technology, service information will be reviewed and translated into Chinese. Our representatives in China will have meetings with – and give presentations to – potential business partners. We will liaise with the Chinese companies and help you negotiate with them during partnership, cooperation and investment discussions. We will assist you with business meetings and trade missions in China and provide interpretation services.
For companies that wish to sell products in China, we will provide information on export regulations, and set up sales channels on the most popular cross-border product platforms and TV shopping channels. Our partners in China have bonded warehouses in Shanghai and Zhengzhou. We will prepare all documents for exporting to China, including packaging, logistics and customs. We will help with trademark registration, intellectual property protection and brand establishment.
Once your new business venture is underway, we provide copywriting services on Chinese social media to promote your company profile, maintain relationships and expand your business network across the region.
