The Chinese market is not just trading in China and in the past.

Your local market now has access to Chinese market.

This is due to;

  • Chinese international trading over the internet,
  • Chinese delegations traveling world-wide for trade and education,
  • Chinese people on holiday exporting the world and returning to China with gifts of expletive banded products,

You on longer need to visit China to trade with China.

For your consideration

In working with businesses in North America, Asia and Europe I feel the importance of the internet has been lost on many companies trading locally and world-wide trading.

The internet is often seen as something your business needs a presence on and not the main point in which to start trading. Maybe we saw it as something that was important in the 90’s but we have move on, that was yesterday idea!

This is not the case; the birth of the internet was as important as the birth of the printing press. Like the printing press, the internet is finding different uses very quickly given that the internet, like the printing press, enables faster commutation of information. If the printing press gave access to towns and cities., the internet gives us access to the world.   

There has been a world-wide change in the use of the internet which has been developing over the last 10 years.

The USA has leads the way, “if you are not online you not trading”. This is followed by China, not Europe, with number of users over 800 million and growing. The developing markets of Africa and South America will follow soon.

There has been a growing and changing use of the internet driven by the youth of the world over. 20 years ago, TV, books, newspapers were the main sources of information. Today the growing demands for information, educations and purchases is supplied by the internet.

There is now a generation which grew up with the internet and is working in business. They are changing the way in which we trade locally and international. This change is so great that your local market now has direct access to the international market.

This change is not a “Big Bang” but the changes are happening daily and are often missed by business.

Based on our company extensive knowledge we suggest the following key issues need to be considered;

  • Be seen on the internet world-wide. What services on the internet have been developed recently? Can new services help to grow your business or are they going to take control away from your business?
  • The amount of information being collected has given birth to the term “Big Data”. How can you put this information to use for our business?
  • With each passing generation the world-wide knowledge grows. The world-wide demand for education and training is growing fast along with the growing populations. Is your business seen as a source for information?
  • The world-wide control of distribution channels. The use of the internet enables people to access products and services faster. New big businesses are keen to manage and control access to products and services. Do these new businesses create new business opportunities or effect your current trading?

Slow international internet from China

Slow website response time can be due to many reasons. Not always relating to accessing the website from mainland China.

Here are some pointers;

  • Size of your website page - the large the contents of your website, the longer it will take to for your browser (Firefox, Chrome, IE, etc.) to download website information and fully display it on a screen.

Check our website page and web contents size - please see Our Testing Services

  • Size of your website page (mobile) - The above point becomes even more important when your website is being accessed over a mobile network. Often a mobile network will have slower data download speeds than a Wi-Fi mobile connection.

Your website needs to be able to supply to a mobile; image, video, etc., in media sizes that fits the size of the mobile screen size and no bigger.

When you send a media to the mobile which is bigger than the screen needs you waste a lot of time and resources sending the media , storing the media on the mobile, and mobile's processing power changing the size of the media to fit on the mobile screen.

Check our website page and web contents size - please see Our Testing Services

  • Website contents on different parts of the internet - In today's "Cloud" services it is hard to know what is happening to your website components. Often the parts (files) that go to create your website come from different parts of the internet.

On fast local internet connection, you do not see what is happening as website appears on your screen.

A simple example of this is social media contents. Your website will ask the social media company, e.g., Facebook, send the contents to your website page. This will be coming from a different source on the internet to your website.

Most modern website site contents come from many locations from all over the world. Taking this approach your website developer you can create a website quickly. The downside is when you are accessing a website from mainland China where more oversea locations your website data is coming from and slower performance.

Check the location of website contents - please see Our Testing Services

  • Slow / busy internet - The internet to and from China often runs slow which includes Hong Kong.

Within China historically the internet runs fast. The internet in China is beginning to slow down during peak usage e.g. during the working day, early evening when children come home from school, bad weather, etc.

To understand how the internet works - please see Regional Internet presents

Please remember if you are testing your website in China do it during peak usage - please see Our Testing Services

  • DNS lookup - Offer your website cannot be found at all from China without having to ask your browser a few times (press enter three or four times)

When looking for your website on the internet the internet lookups your domain name to find the location of your website i.e. where your website in hosted. This is like looking up a post code / zip code to see where someone lives.

In mainland China they will not know where your website can be found and have to ask the international internet. While this only takes a few seconds, it can result in your website not been displayed at all.

For more information please see  - Local DNS records

  • Blocked website contents - Blocked contents on your website. Some website contents are blocked in China, mainly overseas social website.

While this is a problem and makes a mess of the website display it is where your website contents are not blocked but slowed down to so that your website does not load at all.

A good example of this is Google fonts, Google analytics. The Chinese authorities will turn on and off these slowing down blocks from time to time, i.e. work one day not the next.

To see that is happening to your website site over time - please see Blocked Website Components
