Two Hayle-based entrepreneurs have launched a one-stop-shop to support small businesses into exporting to China.

Market Me China is the brainchild of Mo Fenghua, who offers marketing services focused upon connecting small and medium sized enterprises with business connections in the Far East.

Tapping into the technical skills of her web designer and developer husband Darren Stevens, Ms Mo has already attracted international queries from businesses seeking a route into China and its burgeoning consumer market.

Market Me China’s aim is to help western companies expand their business into China’s market and a country with more than half a billion internet users.

It offers China search engine optimisation, pay per click advertising, social media marketing, web design, branding, Chinese translation and copywriting as well as customer liaison and support, and Chinese language and culture training.

Ms Mo has a background in China-based online marketing and is also search engine optimisation trained by Netconcepts, the top SEO company in China.

Over the past few months, she has been establishing links within Cornwall’s business community, attending networking events and also drawing on start-up support and advice from Outset Cornwall.

“We have already had international enquiries,” said Ms Mo, who was born and raised in Guangzhou in southern China.

“It doesn’t matter where businesses are based, as long as they are looking at the Chinese market. Clients can sell products or services – for instance one company is a business that supports people to apply for a Green Card; another has apartments to let in New York.”

Closer to home, Market Me China has worked for Roddas, to translate their marketing material and look at how the brand will target Chinese consumers.

“It’s very important to understand Chinese consumers,” says Ms Mo. “Not everyone is familiar with Western foods, but if you tell them it’s a famous brand, they will give it a go.”

Market Me China aims to have secured a portfolio of 20 international small and medium sized business clients within the next 12 months.

The company says its tailor-made strategies and links with China-based marketing professionals will save business from having to find different agencies for different needs.

“Market Me China provides a unique experience for the client, who can learn more about the culture, understand how online marketing works in China but also have us as liaison support to overcome any language barriers,” adds Ms Mo.

“We are confident that with this combination we can help clients reach their business goals in one of the world’s largest economies.”
