Hi guys, just wanted to Shout out. I'm on my way back to Shanghai next month.
Full time Investor and Coach. If anyone is in contact with the companies here in Aus that are trying to sell their through Property Expo's, hook us up! Their property Expo's are fantastic however I've seen a few Australian businesses their underperform and not hit their goals.
Cheers Guys, Have a fantastic 2014
What are you looking for exactly? we have networks in Shanghai and I will be there early few for Chinese new year. There are a heap of expo's and in terms of being successful, its obviously an understanding of what the consumer wants. The chinese when looking at Australia, look very quickly at areas, if its an apt they know what they want and if its house and land then schools….
There are a number of 'Australian?' property firms that market successfully in China either through networks or expo's.
Happy to help with more info
Great question Ivan. I want to be more involved in Investing while in Shanghai.
I went with an American Property friend to an Expo with a girlfriend. I'm an approachable guy, people came up to me a few times asking what I was selling.
Mean while, there were some Australians there struggling to promote their Australian Property groups. I spoke to a couple of them, most couldn't' speak a word of Chinese.
Ivan, if you know people going to the Expo's that need really good front people….. I have been paid to join entourages to help image and make people feel comfortable.
When I'm there, the only Australian I see regularly would be Daniel Smith (one of Australia & China's leaders in NLP/Coaching). So mixing with Australian Investors there would be my pleasure.
If you don't speak a word of chinese, that is part of the issue in breaking in. Chinese culture and business custom is very different to ours. If you show them a contract, they will laugh. Not much is documented over there. They will need to build trust with you, so if you are caucasian as I am, bring a beautiful Chinese girl with you (such as my partner), and I can tell you you are one step along the jouney.
The Aussie groups I have seen are not successful for a reason, they try to break into China with no contacts at all. I have been dealing with China for sometime and my networks with China to China and Australia to China is very strong, so with reputation will come work.
Be aware of 'government officials' over there, know who they are and how they travel to Oz and you have a great platform to build on.
Exactly! So true. And as you pointed out, its more than just the language.
Yes going there with a beautiful girl makes a difference. I work with a Tri-lingual Russian Beauty sometimes. That blows them away. Or I take a Shanghainee stunner.
Ivan, add me on Wechat, Adriannqld

Thanks for posting this topic.
I would love to learn more on the customs and what it takes to build that trust and relationship with Chinese investors.
Any extra info contributed is much appreciated.
Thanks for your time and have a great day.
Funny, I was just talking to Ollie, he has one of the best sites I've ever seen. hackingchinese.com this guy (well Ivan does too) knows what he is talking about.
When you end up coming I would be giving any of the 3 of us some Skype calls.EngeloRumoraParticipant@engelorumoraJoin Date: 2010Post Count: 618
