The rise of the China market presents an unprecedented market opportunity for US and Western companies to grow their business. Investment in developing the China market continues on a scale and pace greater than any other market in the world with China being #1 in US foreign direct investment. Western Companies experience difficulties in penetrating the China market due to differences in culture, consumer behavior, technology and infrastructure. Freeborders offers a proven China Mobile Enablement solution to help these companies accelerate market penetration through a unique combination of:
- China consumer market behavior understanding
- In-country technical development
- China mobile device testing labs and expertise
- Expertise with the China mobile infrastructure
Multinational companies are experiencing pain trying to move their web presence to a mobile environment that effectively captures the China market. Specifically,
- There are 200 million smartphone mobile China users and they are increasing at a faster rate than in any other country.
- Fully 60% of the China consumers that access the Internet do it solely through smartphones.
- 60% of Western MNCs focused on the China market have a mobile strategy compared to 94% of Chinese domestic companies (Source: American Chamber of Commerce)
- 20% of Western MNCs have a launch plan for mobile; 60% have not started one yet.
- Eight out of ten Western MNC’s online attempts to target the China consumer underperformed expectations until the 3rd major revision of their site. Primary reasons for these failed attempts are lack of understanding of differences in consumer behavior, cultural norms, infrastructure and technology usage.
