What Is "Smart Digital Marketing For Trading Companies"?

Not 'being the factory' can be problematic for trading companies and agents in China, with buyers less likely to want to work with middle men. So where does that leave you as a trading company?

Despite the challenges, as a small and agile outfit that understands the ideal customer, and often is of the same nationality and speaks the same language, you have certain advantages. Moreover, the internet has created a playing field where even the most modest companies can compete and be heard. Despite this fact, online marketing is often overlooked in favour of trade shows and existing networks, but it is absolutely critical to ongoing success. Tellingly, effective online marketing can be done with anyone willing to take the time to listen, understand and communicate with their customers online!
The key challenge is making a break from tradition and trying new marketing techniques which the internet offers.
