Since 2017, we as GENUINE work with companies to transform sales and marketing to digital, avoiding paper work, avoiding endless touchpoints and avoiding manual credit. Online catalogues with personalized recommendations, web chat or video calls with experts, as well as online “how-to” videos help to produce better results with following:
B2B products, that are easy to understand, widely used, customizable, easy to transport, competitively priced, and sold on a trustworthy platform can be sold most successfully and with highest consumer satisfaction, on e-commerce. (Measured by Product retour rates)
Products that can be customized to the buyers’ needs are very attractive to B2B online buyers. We have observed that the lighter the product and the easier to transport, the higher is the sales rate of the product. However, B2B byers compare prices and features efficiently online and are extremely cost sensitive. In addition, in China sales via reputable e-commerce platforms provide more trust in the whole online transaction (compared to sourcing from a vendor’s webpage).
In China products that require a lot of explanation or are difficult to use may require more in-person introduction, in these cases e-commerce is successfully used to attract awareness, the close of the sales deal is then fullfilled offline.
"The Chinese market is a great opportunity, but difficult to enter and manage. We have experienced enough challenges to understand what works and what doesn't. That's why we prefer to generate sustainable growth based on realistic assumptions."
