Today I am traveling to Hong Kong for a long list of meetings for the next 8 days.
I have only been in Hong Kong once before and that was a two day visit. But already then it inspired me in so many ways.
In Hong Kong everything is about business 24/7, which is a bit overwhelming at first, but becomes quite enjoyable after a while. I like it, because it saves me a lot of time.
My main purpose with this business trip is to learn more about online marketing – and in particular affiliate marketing – inside China.
Very few in the western world know anything about that. Okay, they can mention a few, major websites that sells traffic, but that’s about it. But there is so much more to learn about online marketing in China.
I believe the Chinese economy will rebound and continue its massive two-digit growth rates again. I also believe that the online marketing scene in China will have a very bright future and that the very people that figure out, how to leverage and take advantage of the vacuum, will be rewarded tremendously well.
To make sure that we don’t miss the opportunity in China, we have hired a full-time researcher from China to focus online on building a network of Chinese people in the online marketing industry.
