ADVERTISING MARKETING , Promote your business by means of printed messages http://www.business-idea.com/lead.asp?p=postrf/0/3996 6 Feb 2014 lofegym advertising marketing http://www.business-idea.com/lead.asp?p=postrf/0/3996
Dear Sir / Madam,

E-business become less and less effective as there are too much information floating around and people simply don't have time to dig out from the emails, social media, instant messaging etc...

Most worth mentioning is that the decision makers in China do not use the electronic message as often as those younger generation and most of them only understand Chinese. They only read the printed media.

Technically speaking, it becomes more and more expensive if you want to be stand out in the mountains of information that keep coming in minute, in second, even in millisecond.

It is especially true in China where over 1.5 billion people reside and over billions of internet, mobile users live. And they are sending out messages daily, in minutes, in seconds etc... And only those with no decision power at all who read those messages, not the decision makers.

Therefore, the traditional marketing methods become more effective and less expensive in comparison with the electronic methods nowadays.

So here is our opportunity:

I can send out the printed message to the physical addresses where the potential clients are located for the company with a plan for the China market.

We can liaison together to form a partnership and share the expense and profit.

The print media can be name as the Western Opportunities. I have a data base of over million addresses and contact information that can be used in this business.

As the email is less effective so I would recommend to mail out your promotion material in printed copy to the potential clients.

I can created a mail list directly mail to the other potential individuals (I am not offering the list. I only mail the brochures on their behalf at a fee).

I have collected as many as over 1,000,000 VIP contact list (I can hand pick the most relevant persons to mail out for the clients).

To begin with, I charge US$ 2.00 each address for handling plus the cost of the brochure, envelop and postage. (The clients can pick 500, 1000, 2000, 5000, 10,000, addresses with their specific projects then I can search and consolidate the list and mail them out for them)

I am not selling the list as it is through my years of accumulation that is very valuable. I only send out the promotion through the listing for our clients.

I think this is an effective way to approach the Chinese market for any kind of business. I trust this is a practical way for their business promotion in addition to their regular marketing plans.

I can send you a screen shot of my computer, in which you can find that I have almost 2 GB of file in my search 2 folders and there are over 40 folders in my computer.

I have served over 20 companies to develop the Chinese market in the past 10 years. For each of the companies I have served I have to develop a contact list of tens of thousands of companies / persons in charge in order to generate the possible clients.

Actually, I market my services using the contact list I have accumulated in the past almost 10 years. For the foreign companies I can use email as to make foreign contacts through phone call, fax, and mail are very expensive.

For the Chinese domestic contacts it is much cheaper to make contacts through mails, phone, and fax. In those three communication methods, mail is the most inexpensive method.

Instant messaging is also very fast, but it only reaches those young people with no decision power. Occasionally, I also use the instant messaging for market research purpose.

The clients can use me as a local contact person too. And we can discuss a reasonable fee for this service too depended on the work load and requirements.

My potential customer data base is of high quality as it is through my personal research over a time of 10 years. And I have also reserved the best contacts that I actually made through in the separate files in different categories.

I don't sell the list, but I can use the list to generate the leads for the clients.

If there are enough clients, I can publish a regular magazine and they can place their advertisement in the magazine and sent out through the selected list I generated from my database.

I am thinking to entitle the magazine as "the America Opportunities". The magazine has to be a printed version as they will be sent out to the decision makers who only use to the printed media.

What do you think?

Thank you.
Kind Regards,
Haiqing (Oliver)

Why use Bluetooth Proximity Advertising?
• The effectiveness of contacts is much higher than in other ways of spreading information.
• Information is saved in the telephone, computer and can be later transferred to friends or relatives
• Every person is a potential receiver of the information.
• Absolutely free of charge to both send and received these messages.
• The opportunity of offering different services (menu order at a restaurant, Interactive games in a club, weather forecast, rates of exchange, stock quotation, chats etc.)
• The opportunity of static data collection.
• The receiver decides whether to receive the message or not (doesn’t annoy the receiver).

The target group includes 80% of population, and about 20% of them always keep the Bluetooth function turned on. This number will increase up to 90% in the case of using infotainment (posters, light boxes, etc).

JEWELLERY , Excess jewellery inventory website idea http://www.business-idea.com/lead.asp?p=postrf/0/2941 22 Apr 2009 ytenuma jewellery http://www.business-idea.com/lead.asp?p=postrf/0/2941 In today’s economy, there is a large amount of consumers who are trying to either trade in jewellery or be in fashion and buy the latest trends. As a result, a plethora of small mom and pop retail shops have an abundant amount of jewellery stocked up in inventory that cannot sell. Today, jewellers will try to sell the inventory on eBay, sell the jewellery to other local retailers, or put the item(s) on consignment. Our website will solve the problem of keeping track of retailers’ inventory by allowing mom and pop jewellery owners to buy, sell, or trade existing inventory with one another. It will be a service that jewellery owners can log into and visually see what other excess inventory that local and distant owners are selling. Initially, the first few items will be free to upload and then a tiered pricing structure will be put in place if the jeweller wishes to upload more items. Additionally, it will sell data to marketing firms so they can understand what advertisements direct what traffic in a variety of niche jewellery markets. This will solve an ongoing problem that many jewellery owners have been facing for a long period of time.

Business Plan

Action Plan
1. Find out who gets hurt by this business?
a. The Brokers will slightly get hurt since they will be selling less inventory that is now traded by my site.
b. Who are the stake holders?
c. The Stakeholders are the brokers, retailers, consumers, and advertisers

2. What margins are retailers working with?
a. Today Retailers are working with margins of 2-10% off of each sale for loose diamonds. In regards to watches and other jewelry, the margins are between 2-6%.

3. What’s the size of the market?
a. Total Market 55B
b. Real Jewellery 44B
c. Costume Jewellery 10B
d. I would like to get 3 – 6% margin of initial profits through advertisements.

5. What competition is there?
Retail jewellers will face increased competition from suppliers to the mass market, such as home shopping channels, mail order firms, Internet retailers and discounters. These mass merchants, which did not exist 30 years ago, have gained a share of more than 25% of the jewellery market.

6. What are people doing now?
a. Today retailers and mom and pop shops are selling excess inventory on EBAY, selling to pawn shops, to brokers, or on consignment.

7. Do customers prefer to see the jewellery before purchasing?
a. As long as the diamond or piece of jewellery is well described, gemmologists and jewellery retailers can figure out the 5 c’s and quality of the diamond.

8. Is it possible to incorporate larger retailers?
a. Yes it is possible but not plausible since larger retail shops can get increase inventory turns faster due to the large amount of stores and dealers across the US or the world. However, smaller mom and pop shops only sell niche jewellery in well off areas.

9. Could mom and pop buy larger stores excess/overstock?
a. Yes, if there is a large volume of excess inventory, larger stores will buy the excess inventory.

10. What is your niche?
a. To create a SERVICE that allows mom and pop jewellers to trade with one another. For now, I will just focus on small jewellers that have a lot of excess inventory on hand.


Interview with Jewellery Owner:
1. Broker System – RAPNet – the brokers use this system to trade jewellery with other brokers across the world.

2. Average Inventory Turnover currently takes 1-3 months for excess inventory.
a. Depends on the current trends in the market

3. How can we rate retailers that use the service?
a. Qualify Retailers - Get Retailers credentials and TAX information and reference it against county recorder data (Equalization Board) that is made public.

4. Do not get the larger retailers to use the service initially since they might purchase large volumes of inventory at low prices and put the smaller stores out of business.

5. Some of the clients to this service will be estate jewellers, consignment jewellers, pawn shops, local mom and pop jewellers, and ebay auctioneers

6. What are you doing now?
a. Selling items on ebay
b. Holding inventory that is not trendy in the store.
