Why You Cannot Use WeChat to Enter China People Market

It has become very common nowadays to read flyers and hear people saying, "Now you can enter the vast 1.4 billion Chinese market using WeChat".  In fact many trainers, myself included in the past, have told the whole world that if you too want to enter the market of China and Chinese, you have to use WeChat.  It seems very logical to use the bait of huge Chinese market to attract people to use WeChat. 

Is this true?  In my earlier article (you can read it at here), I wrote that if the only reason for you to use WeChat is to enter the market of China and Chinese, you better don't use Wechat.  This is because your monetary and selfish reason will soon be detected by the Chinese and they will detest you, not like you.

It is like the Chinese saying that they want to enter the US market and so they start using Facebook and Whatsapp. But we know that the Americans don't want people to use these tools to try to sell to them, Americans want the Chinese to use these US tools so as to better connect with them, befriend them, and start exchanging with them. 

So I stand firm and tall to say categorically that you cannot use WeChat to enter the Chinese market.  If you want to sell to the Chinese, you must first know how to behave so that the Chinese will like you, connect with you and respect you.  

To me, the one and only reason for you to use WeChat is to go back to your roots.  Now you may say, I am not a Chinese, what roots are you talking about?  I am talking about going back to your roots as a human. Because I truly believe that the Chinese culture is about humanity and about behaving in harmonious ways, and not about just doing things the 'Chinese' way like giving out red packets, wearing Chinese costumes and writing in poetic ways.

How to Be a WechatPreneur at ZERO COST

If your business derives 80% of its sales from WeChat, you are called a Wechatpreneur (微商), also called Technopreneur or Mumpreneur (if you are a stay-at-home-mum). 

There are 8 ways that you can be a Wechatpreneur at ZERO COST: 
  1. Moments (朋友圈). If you have more than 2,000 friends on WeChat, your Moments posts (if they are interesting and not just plain advertisements) will start generating comments and likes.  You post 3 to 5 Moments a day and people contact you via comments, or in the links or other contacts that you provide in the Moments posts
  2. Groupchats (群聊).  You form groupchats by gathering people who have shown interest in what you do. Your groupchats are very active with mini leaders and fans who support your Groupchat posts. Every day you are adding new people to the groupchats.  You are also forming new groupchats every day, some of which are sub-groups. By far Groupchats is the most common and effective to sell on WeChat FOC. 
  3. Message Broadcasts (群发) You can send out to maximum 200 contacts in each message broadcast
  4. Messaging (消息).  Here you message people directly.  Each message can also be a video not exceeding 5 minutes or voice maximum 60 seconds. This must be the most basic and yet effective methods to sell on WeChat.
  5. Mei Pian (美篇).  Mei Pian is a mini program (小程序) that looks like a website.  Here you can include words, pictures, videos, music and even tabs for sub-pages.  You promote your Mei Pian via Moments, Groupchats, Message Broadcast and Messaging.   After scanning your Mei Pian QR code, people will go inside your Mei Pian. 
  6. Official Account (公众号) Official accounts are mini-websites with up to 15 pages.  When people follow your official accounts, you can send them a broadcast each day with maximum 8 articles in that broadcast.  You can set up maximum 5 Official Accounts with your business registration. There is ZERO cost in setting up official accounts. ff Official 
  7. Mini Program (小程序) Mini programs are mobile apps inside WeChat.  People are very familiar with doing business on mobile apps. You can easily promote your mini programs via Moments, Groupchats, Message Broadcast and Messaging. 
  8. Groupbuy (吃喝玩乐) Here you go into 大众点评  and put your products and services there FOC.  People can access Groupbuy inside their WeChat Wallet page.

Your Profile = People's Acceptance of You

We know that in WeChat, you can simply add strangers as your friends using 'People Nearby' feature, search for contacts and add from Groupchats.  But what determines people's acceptance of you is your profile.  

Your Profile must have the following features for people to accept you readily: 

1. Use Your Real Name, not Psesodonym 

2. A proper or Professional photo that is not far from your real self

3. 'Whats up' to state what you are currently most occupied with.  If you put in things like 'Like to add new friends', it shows that you are more a seller than a real contact.  This will put people off.  

4. Use both Chinese and English names, because 90% of WeChat users are Chinese but they also like English names

5. Do not expose your phone number in your profile, for it shows that you are too hard-up for business and people will fear to accept you as their friend

For instance, my profile (search for me under the ID 'AndyTheCoach') is 吴家发 Andy 新加坡 培训师 jj

Further 3 Wrong Understandings About WeChat

Other than the common 10 misunderstandings about WeChat, there following three prevalent thinking that must be corrected:

1. People in China Cannot Follow My WeChat Account

I have over 211 friends who live in China and they follow my Moments posting every day.  I even taught one of them English via WeChat. Definitely, people in China can follow my WeChat account. 

But if I were to create my overseas Official Account, people in China cannot follow and read my overseas Official Account. 

But if these people from China opened their WeChat accounts using their e-mails and QQ accounts and not their mobile number, they can follow all overseas official accounts.  

Note that official accounts are mini-sites on WeChat, they are not the same as the usual personal WeChat account that most people use every day

2. WeChat Wallet Cannot Be Opened Outside China

Anyone in this world can open WeChat Wallet easily. They just need one of the following: bank card from China (meaning you have a bank account physically opened in China) or Visa/Mastercard credit card to authenticate

I use WeChat Wallet more than once a week as I send red packets to my students in the WeChat classes as I demonstrate to them how they can open WeChat Wallet in just 3 minutes inside my class

Note that only with WeChat Wallet can you access the free advertising platform called 'GroupBuy'.  With WeChat Wallet, you can receive and send RMB to anyone in this world via transfer or red packets.  You also can make use of WeChat Pay to do cashless payments to vendors

3. Only Those Who Understand Chinese Can Use WeChat

WeChat is used in over 100 countries in this world and currently, it translates 21 languages instantly.  Thus you don't need to know Chinese to use WeChat

No More Sales Objections

Sales trainers like to teach people the concept of overcoming objections.

To me, objections are a waste of time. This is because closing is an inside job. The salesperson deep down must believe in closing the sale and not focus on overcoming objections. 

When salespeople start overcoming objections, they are placing themselves in conflict with their customers when they should be establishing collaborative relationships instead.

Often overcoming objections set the stage for polite disagreements and respectful differences of opinion, forcing salespeople to defend their solutions. At worst, it turns the sales process into a battle in which the salesperson goes into a battle an attack mode to 'win' the sale. In fact, words like 'persist', 'convince', 'persuade' all imply such aggressive behaviour. We all know that you could win an argument and lose the sale.

It doesn't have to be this way. Salespeople can choose another approach: prevent objections instead of overcoming objections. How to prevent objections? 

1. Attract Customers to Buy from You. When you attract people, people will be doing their own assessment and weigh the pros and cons of your attraction. If they are attracted enough, they will justify the cons with the pros. Just look at the queues for iPhone X and you will know the importance of attraction.

2. Mention the reasons against you first. When you mention your weaknesses, people will see that you are honest and they will respect you more. With higher respect, they will be more attracted to you and thus objections will become irrelevant.

3. Choose your customers. Only sell to people that are in line with your vision and mission. Like Apple's chooses to sell to 'premium customers' only, people who are willing to pay more for the Apple brand and look and feel of its products.

To know more about how to attract customers like a magnet, come for Selling the Impossible course on this Friday 16 March 2018 2 to 5.30 pm. To make it easier for you, we offer a special 49% discount for you at only $149 instead of $298. For 5 pax, it is only $59 each.
