The Strategies of Bargaining in China - Tips for Successful BusinessA popular saying goes around in China, "Everything in China is negotiable." Shopping, selling and buying seem like games that are played between buyers and sellers on the street stores, vendors or in the wholesale markets. However, as a rule of thumb, don't bargain at large department stores, corporate chains as the prices are fixed, and the sales persons don't have the right to modify them. In the market, everyone is out there to make money, and you have to learn the rules so as not to get something that would throw you into deep regret. 1. Opening with some basic Chinese sentences. Don't worry that it would throw you into a headache Chinese conversation. A few opening up sentences like Ni hao(Hello), Duo shao qian(How much) can put a smile on the face of the sales person and cultivate the relationship. 2. Bring a calculator with you if your Chinese is not effluent enough to carry out a conversation. Do not always think that you can c
A Guide to Doing Business Face to Face in ChinaFirstly - where do I go and how do I get there? By far the best place to start is with the Canton Fair in Guangzhou - cantonfair.org.cn which runs in April and October. The best way to get there is by flying into Hong Kong either direct or indirect (a short stop over in Dubai is usually cheapest) an economy ticket should set you back around 395. Once in Hong Kong there are a variety of ways of making it up to Guangzhou but I find that the easiest and cheapest way is by train, all trains run from Hung Hom station in Kowloon and arrive at Guangzhou East station in Guangzhou, tickets are around $190HK one way. What paper work do I need? You will first and foremost need a Chinese Visa which you obtain through a Chinese embassy here in the UK - chinese-embassy.org.uk/eng/lsyw/chivisa/. You will need a Letter of invitation from a company or institution in China or Visa Notification Form issued by an authorized unit in China (Visa

The Top Ten Reasons Businesses Use Promotional ItemsTrade Show Promotion The top reason that companies purchase promotional items is for use in trade show promotions. The categories of items purchased for trade shows run the gamut from inexpensive giveaways to very expensive gifts for executive buyers. The largest volume of trade show sales is in takeaway gifts for exhibition stand visitors. Customer Retention, appreciation Customer retention and appreciation is the second most cited reason for purchasing promotional items. Gifts to existing customers include everything from free sticky note pads sent out by office supply companies to imprinted sugarless mint tins handed to customers after a tooth cleaning at the dentist. Promotional items are an excellent way to show appreciation to your clients for their custom.

Carabiner Keychains: Big Hit Promotional Items!"Load bearing" carabiners are commonly used in both the sailing and rock climbing industries. These "real" carabiners are made from aluminum rod or forged steel shaped around a spring loaded gate. Traditionally made in both D and oval shapes, today carabiners can be found in a variety of sizes and basic shapes. Their functionality stems from the gate mechanism which opens with pressure and springs closed when released allowing carabiners to hold and be attached to various objects. This article is concerned not with the load bearing variety of carabiners, but with the much smaller "replica" or "promotional" carabiners used primarily as keychains.

By way of the spring loaded gate they can be easily clipped to most straps and loops creating a very convenient way to carry k
