Most companies need help to convert potential Chinese business opportunities into sales revenues. Certain jobs demand specialist skills – for using the Chinese social media channel Wechat; copywriting for the Chinese market, or knowing how to go about a Chinese Utility Model Patent search. Other tasks could involve Chinese language tutoring or even completing a China working visa application. You can’t do it yourself because it is in Chinese. And, you can’t justify employing full time or even part time staff for these jobs, at least not until you see sufficient business coming from China.
So you need help!
Nowadays there is a lot of free information online and many government agencies also offer helpful advice. However, they only tell you what you need to do. In reality you still need someone to actually get those jobs done.
But where do you go to find someone qualified, willing and able to take on these kinds of tasks?
Here are some alternatives to consider:
There are a number of reputable Chinese specialist consultancies that may be equipped with the expertise required to do your job. However, you may need deep pockets and an assigned budget to pay their daily rates, which are typically in line with the management consultancy industry, covering overheads, premises, salaries and benefits plus equipment and materials.
You might think that hiring an agency would be an easy way to get your projects completed, especially on the creative side of things like digital marketing and design. Again you could be right if you have enough budget. Agency fees need to cover their headcounts, from designers to admin – and more. As a smaller business, you may not get priority over larger clients and you may not get the most experienced talent to work on your project. And would they always understand your China needs?
Freelancers with the bilingual skills that you need can provide a much more personal service because they normally only work on a few projects at any one time. And they will always make sure you are happy with the work they deliver to ensure you leave good reviews, which can help them get more work in the future. Did you know that consulting firms and agencies use freelancers too, to complement their internal resources?
