Following the post on this blog from Carmen in April on the challenges of marketing in China, I would like to discuss some recent data on ad spending in this country and more companies are turning to attract customers.
I do not know if any of you to China is an interesting market and if you are trying to promote your products or services there, in my case, some media have worked their day offline and try to invest in SEM in both Google and Abide, finding problems diverse, especially in Abide with tremendous administrative problems to be an international customer.
Yet another problem I found is added reliability metrics provided by different means, according to the source to consult the numbers vary and sometimes even “squeal.”
In any case, taking into account these “small” problems, what is clear is that China is a market for many companies fully priority, where you have to learn the rules of the game and find both profiles as the means most suited to your product and customer, although it is complicated.
In this regard, on November 10, CTR research firm published a book on the growth of advertising spending in different media:
- The rate of growth in advertising spending in China has increased in the first 3 quarters of 2010 by 14%
- The TV has a market share of 77% and investment in it has risen by 12%.
- The investment in advertising in newspapers and magazines have increased by 19%
- Investment in outdoor advertising increased by 19%
- The radio ad spending increased by 33%
In addition to these impressive growth data, include companies that are turning their strategy of market opening in China. Companies like Procter & Gamble, totally used to invest in advertising in other markets are investing caps 1 / 3 of its budget in this country (P & G has invested nearly 3,000 million euros this year being the biggest investment for cosmetics brand Olay).
A Procter followed other major multinationals such as L’Oréal, Ulilever, Yum Brands (Pizza Hut, KFC, Taco Bell …) and Coca-Cola. As Chinese brands include Wahiawa Group devoted primarily or Ting sin packaged beverages, pre-cooked food manufacturer.
An application for your business idea can enhance the image and projection of the same while increasing their chances of making money.
Applications are programs specially designed to run on smart phones or smart phones like iPhone or phones using the Android operating system.
Since today more and more people use smart phones and can access those applications so that your business idea has its own application allows you to access that market of users. Even if your country is not yet smart phones are very popular, have their own application will also allow companies to project an image edge.
Make a customized application for a business idea for either iPhone or Android can cost between U.S. $ 5.000 to U.S. $ 50.000 U.S. dollars on average … uhmm very expensive!! But do not worry now emerging as alternatives for creating simple applications in a standardized manner but at much less cost.
MobiFlex is for example one such alternative because it is a website that allows you to create a very simple and obviously at a much more reasonable and affordable for any business idea median (there is a price of implementation or setup $ 199 more monthly subscription fees which varies according to the number of users).
As they say, if you know how to make a PowerPoint presentation can then make an application MobiFlex functions since they have created for you to create your application without programming knowledge.
Perhaps you have a product or service to which all are useful to them which can improve or modify, sell at a cheaper price, you might think that your city or community, we need some kind of business as a shoe store, stationery, hospital, butchers, law firm, doctor etc.
or maybe you want to build or promote a product or service well, that’s entrepreneurial mind … very good, but before we continue let me say that a large percentage of new businesses or businesses close their doors within a year due to lack of profits or revenues … and this is mainly due to a problem that we are not aware from the outset, such as the lack of a good business plan.
The question is: what kind of products we promote or market, that quality, price, our time management, promotion and advertising.
The planning, organization, operation and control of our company are one of the biggest challenges for the entrepreneur starting a new adventure.
Being an entrepreneur requires discipline, accountability, consistency, and perseverance, a businessman working more than an employee, and almost always initially earns lower incomes and more work, even after incomes rise depending on the success of your business in short to be an entrepreneur is a challenge. Being an entrepreneur in the Internet is not much different than described above, only change some concepts, but if all this applies perfectly to an Internet business. It must plan, organize, invest.
Success in any endeavor on the Internet and outside it is able to define goals early on, with a good planting there are many chances of success.
