How Can a Small Business Sell Overseas
 
Aug 10, 2018
Category:

With the economy in such a volatile position, selling something in your own country can be as hard as selling anywhere else. For that reason, many companies both big and small, choose to branch out their sales to include other countries. It gives you a much wider group of potential customers, and it can also give you access to more varied suppliers. As a small business, how can you take advantage of the global market?

Use Your Existing Website

One way that you can quickly and easily start to sell products overseas is via your website. A website had the advantage of being able to reach anywhere in the world on the internet. It means that people in other countries can see your products and buy them. There are a few things that you will need to do to make your website available to other countries and customers. One thing is to add payment systems that are available in all countries, this can be a good idea even for customers in your own country, but it is especially good for international transactions. You could also add international shipping to your website so that you can send your products around the globe easily.

Sell on an International Marketplace

Some small businesses use international marketplaces like eBay to sell their products for them. It can negate the need for having to do things through your own website, but there can also be limitations. For example, some require you to register as a business in the other country first before you can start selling. There is also the cost to place your products on those sites. There are many such marketplaces on the internet, so you might find one that meets your business needs.

Partner with Another Company

If you know about a company in another country that sells similar products to you or ones that can complement yours, then you might be able to strike an agreement. You can arrange to sell each other’s products in your own country which can dramatically cut costs. You might even want to employ someone in the other company to help liaise with them and vice versa. You can use software such as a paystub generator to help organize the overseas payments to make it easier.

Set Up a Franchise

For some companies, they find the best way to expand their business is to sell a franchise. A franchise is where you provide the idea and the set-up, and a business owner buys it from you and starts selling under your company name. Many large corporations use this idea to keep costs to a minimum as they don’t have to fund the workers or the property. However, it is important that you ensure your company name is being used in the right way. Your customers won’t always know it’s a franchise, so any problems will reflect on your brand.

These are just a few of the ways that your small business can start to sell on the global markets.

China's BAT companies ramp up competition in streaming sports content
 
China Knowledge Online
Aug 08, 2018
Category:

Aug 07, 2018 (China Knowledge) - Baidu, Alibaba and Tencent are recognized as China's top three tech giants—the so-called "BAT". Baidu-backed online video portal Iqiyi announced on Monday that it had inked a deal with Super Sports Media Inc. to set up a joint venture specialized in sports streaming, kicking off even fiercer competition among BATs for dominant market shares in sports businesses.

Iqiyi is expected to grab streaming rights for 2018/2019 English Premier League soccer with the founding of new joint venture. Increasing costs for purchasing copyrights of series and entertainment TV shows, and attempt to absorb new subscribers are two dominant drivers for Iqiyi to shift focus to sports streaming business.

According to a recent report by Iqiyi, it has spent nearly RMB 4.7 billion (USD 690 million) on content in Q2, up 47% YoY, accounting for 77% of total costs. Against the backdrop of across-the-board rising content spends, the once unacceptable prices of sports copyrights seem less forbidding.

Sports streaming will also help absorb new subscribers, especially male users. Statistics provided by QuestMobile shows that Youku's daily active users (DAV) hit record 100 million in June thanks in part to its digital broadcast of the 2018 World Cup.

Major streaming sites have pumped an increasing amount of money to win sports streaming rights since 2014. Ahead of Iqiyi's move to tap into sports streaming market, Alibaba-owned Youku won Chinese digital streaming rights to the 2018 World Cup. Tencent, the first mover of BAT to provide exclusive sports broadcast services, has held the rights to live stream NBA and CBA game series.

Mobile App WhereIsWhere Launches in Singapore
 
JCN Newswire
Jul 30, 2018
Category:

SINGAPORE - (ACN Newswire) - Singapore's WhereIsWhere, a first-of-its-kind location-based discovery mobile app, is now available for consumers to download for free. Through the initial launch of WhereIsWhere's mobile app, consumers can now discover flash promotions, product and service offerings and activities within a kilometre from where they search, as well as timing-based offers around when they search.

At the initial app launch, WhereIsWhere is already working with over 1,500 retail locations on its app, island-wide - ranging from food and beverage chains including Old Chang Kee, Kopitiam, and Sushi Express and service providers such as Jean Yip to major shopping malls such as Millenia Walk. A number of additional retailers, malls and locations will be added to WhereIsWhere's app by September 2018.

"With Singapore's consumers spending hours each day on their smartphones, we are catering to their mobile-first needs. These consumers are inundated with content and information - we make their decisions simpler, easier, while bringing an element of discovery and excitement. WhereisWhere brings great places, experiences, promotions and storefronts within your vicinity, or at any point on the map, helping you to decide what to eat, shop and do," said Michael Leong, Industry Advisor, WhereIsWhere.

Navigate the map, discover offers, favourite brands for exclusive experiences and deals

According to Ernst & Young, on average Singaporeans spent over 12 hours a day, in 2017, on their digital devices. WhereIsWhere's interactive map and sophisticated filters - including favourite retailers, promotion timings, category lists, and sub-categories - makes searching for the nearest outlets offering products, services, time-based offers and experiences of interest easy and hassle-free, whenever, wherever they are. Consumers can even move their point of search to explore and discover new points of interest.

Once consumers spot what they want from merchants on the app, they can easily follow these merchants' latest flash promotions and offerings by clicking "Favourite". Doing so will drive curated push notifications and live updates from these merchants based on the consumer's choice of parameters. Consumers can also share the promotions they have discovered easily via a "Share" button.

Flash Promotions and Exclusive Offers

Terence Mak, CEO and founder of WhereIsWhere said: "Think of us as Google Maps, but for finding and connecting with deals and activities nearby. Not only do our users find plenty of options on what to see and do, but they can also follow their favourite brands and receive real-time offers and flash promotions. The retail sector is already betting big on WhereIsWhere's app to connect with consumers - since the launch of our discovery platform for Singapore retailers in end-February this year, we have surpassed 1,500 locations island-wide, and counting, and plans are already in place to launch WhereIsWhere in Asian markets beyond Singapore."

Among the first malls to be on board the platform, Millenia Walk is confident in driving brand awareness for its merchants and elevating consumers' retail experience to new heights through WhereIsWhere's location-based, real-time targeting capabilities. "Millenia Walk is constantly on the lookout for new technologies in line with delivering a specially curated shopping experience for Singapore consumers. We are excited to be among the first malls in Singapore to take a step forward in the retail digital revolution through WhereIsWhere," said Diane Aw, Head of Retail at Millenia Walk.

Consumers can download WhereIsWhere for free on Google Play and App Store.
- Google Play https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.wiw.wiw
- App Store https://itunes.apple.com/sg/app/whereiswhere/id1393828248?mt=8

Merchants can register with WhereIsWhere for free of charge. Registered merchants will be able to list their stores details and location on the app, as well as run promotions among relevant audiences which have opted to follow their brand.

Jul 26, 2018
Category:

SHANGHAI --( ASIA TODAY )-- Shanghai Smart Home Technology will again join forces with China Smart Home Industry Alliance (CSHIA) to establish a trusted platform that connects key players in the smart home industry. An overwhelming response from exhibitors has resulted in the largest ever exhibition space for the show which will span across 23,000 sqm. The show is due to host over 250 renowned domestic and overseas companies and welcome more than 28,000 visitors.

The 2018 edition of Shanghai Smart Home Technology (SSHT) will be held concurrently with Shanghai Intelligent Building Technology (SIBT) to present the latest smart home and intelligent building innovations. Both the artificial intelligence and smart security sectors will receive greater attention at the fairs this year as their influence across a range of industries continues to strengthen. The two fairs also remain an ideal hub for fairgoers to explore the latest industry trends in Internet of Things (IoT), robotics, cloud platforms and big data.

Regarding the future development of the smart home industry, Ms Lucia Wong, Deputy General Manager of Messe Frankfurt (Shanghai) Co Ltd, commented: “I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to the industry for their support of SSHT. While the concept of the smart home was once a futuristic dream it is now a reality. The AI market in China has vigorously expanded thanks to a number of strategic policies and a strong economic performance in the country. A forum dedicated to AI will highlight the first day of the fair and we believe it will provide valuable market insights and future business opportunities.”

Exhibitors gear up to present technological breakthroughs

As a comprehensive trade platform for the smart home industry, visitors can expect to find artificial intelligence, smart security, smart voice control systems, audio and visual home integrated systems, smart sun shading, wireless communication protocols as well as an array of other smart home solutions. Some of the biggest brands to present their latest innovations at this year’s fair include: AIBIC, ANJUBAO, Atte, Aurine, Ave Leelen, Baofeng, DAHUA, DALITEK, D&M, Eastsoft, EnOcean, Gowild, HDL, Hisense, HUTLON, KNX, Konke, Legrand, Rokid, Savekey, Shidian, Sonos, Star-net, T-touching, UIOT, Vensi and WISTAR. Some of the key topics and exhibitors include:

* Artificial intelligence (AI)

Exhibitor: Shenzhen Gowild Robotics Co Ltd AI has quickly become a part of our everyday lives and is becoming embedded in households. In order to accommodate current market demands, Gowild has launched their latest smart virtual assistant 'Smart plusʼ. The voice-controlled application is designed to connect appliances and build a smart household ecosystem.

* Smart security

Exhibitor: Zhejiang Dahua Technology Co Ltd Smart security can improve the quality of life for residents by offering enhanced neighbourhood security solutions.

SSHT is organised by Guangzhou Guangya Messe Frankfurt Co Ltd, the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade – Shanghai Pudong Sub-Council, Shanghai Hongshan Exhibition Service Co Ltd and the China Smart Home Industry Alliance (CSHIA). The fair will be held from 3 – 5 September 2018 at Shanghai New International Expo Centre in China.

SIBT will be held concurrently with SSHT to showcase intelligent building technologies and solutions for building energy saving, the smart community and smart hotels. The fair is committed to presenting the concept of Building Internet of Things and driving the industry forward. This will eventually mean the concept of intelligent building evolving from an individual building to a cluster of buildings and moving further towards intelligent technologies and digitisation. Many hope that the idea of cognitive buildings will eventually be realised.

SSHT and SIBT are both headed by the biennial Light + Building event in Frankfurt, Germany. Messe Frankfurt also organises a series of light and building technology exhibitions in China including Guangzhou Electrical Building Technology, Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition, Shanghai International Lighting Fair and Parking China. The company's light and building technology fairs also extend to markets in Argentina, India, Thailand, Russia, the UAE and other countries and regions.
