The truth is there's a lot more to China than just Alibaba. Getting your business in China can be a challenge. It is not like other countries where you can open up a shop around the corner, with time and patience. In order to enter the China market, you need to get your branding right. The Chinese market has been very competitive and difficult for giants like Apple, Google and Samsung to penetrate. Many brands are getting it wrong because their marketing strategies are not focused on the Chinese customer. Getting your branding right before entering a new market can make all the difference.This episode of The Negotiation is part 1 with Louis Houdart, Founder of CREATIVE CAPITAL, Entrepreneur, Business and Investment Coach, Board Member and Advisor to many start-up companies. The Creative Capital China team has worked with European companies in China and pushed little-known brands into Western markets. By establishing pre-eminent international brand awareness and strong brand relationships, Creative Capital is one of the only firms in China that focuses on widening awareness of Chinese companies beyond their home market. In this thought-provoking and engaging episode, Louis Houdart shares his story about how he founded Creative Capital, what Chinese culture means to him, and how he got rid of "The Secret Garden." Also covered are the importance of strong concepts, branding in China, why Creative Capital is relevant and why we should care when it comes to brands being successful and much more!Please enjoy! Topics Discussed and Key Points: Secret Garden and how Louis got rid of it. How Creative Capital was founded and what they do.  Why Louis found the wedding business to be both amazing and nightmarish. Why Creative Capital was relevant in China. The significance of a brand's concept strength. The meaning of creativity in China and Europe, as well as the nuances surrounding it. The lazy economy and what it entails. Glamping and the rise of Frisbee. Notable Quotes“So, we were in 2006 in Shanghai and China was changing both in terms of the way consumers were consuming and also in the way brands were developing in China and saw a market opportunity in the retail of flowers.”“In terms of a top line, it was an interesting business. In terms of the operation, it was a total nightmare for me for many different reasons..”“In France, it's very easy to get bank financing as a small entrepreneur in China, I mean, you are definitely on your own.”“The steward of Creative Capital is very much of course linked to a history of secret Garden; I think it's also very much linked to the way China intrapreneurship has been developing. So being a very fluid thing, I had this beautiful little secret gallery business. It was very painful to operate but still an interesting small business.”“China is not a place where you come with a small amount of money when you want to play on the Commerce part.”“Most of the branding agencies in Europe in the US are not really there to create brands, they are there to fine-tune an existing concept, which often is fairly good.”“If you try to be perfect, the market is already gone and your competitors have taken your spot. So, we were trying to be maybe not 100% Perfect, but being like 85% or 90% fair but in a very, very, very quick period of time. So, the concept would have taken two years in Europe, we are delivering them in four to five months.”“In the past, I've seen so much creativity in China in solving problems, turning the wrong puzzles and resulting in solving them. I think there's definitely a lot of creativity, so much creativity in China going on.”

Entrepreneurship in Japan fits the definition of the word ‘entrepreneur'. Japanese culture is one that can be described as ‘wabi-Sabi', which literally means "frugal, simple, and expressed in a refined way'. Entrepreneurship is a newly emerging culture in Japan. The gap between the traditional business and the new generation of start-up companies is widening. A small number of entrepreneurs in Japan have gained attention and investment by large enterprises through focusing on innovation, expansion and improvement in the quality of business operations. Japan, not unlike China, has a very unique startup ecosystem, due to its somewhat homogenous society and unique ways of doing business, something not easily understood upon market entry. Today on The Negotiation, we have Akio Tanaka, Co-Founder and Partner at Headline VC. Headline VC is a technology-focused venture capital firm that sees the world's future through the lens of exponential technologies. The aim of Headline is to identify, fund, and partner with companies who are building these new products and services—and to make them more accessible to mainstream consumers. Akio has over 20 years of technology experience.

Akio Tanaka is one of the most influential investors in Japan and has been known to be passionately committed to the local ecosystem. Akio Tanaka talks about his own professional backyard and walks us through his investment methodology with some examples of the companies he likes to invest in and why. He also talks about his own startup background and the acquisition by Adobe, along with some insights on the Japanese entrepreneurial ecosystem, and some conversational dabbling into personal-interest verticals like ski equipment-on-demand services and self-storage in Japan, among other exciting topics. Enjoy! Please enjoy! Topics Discussed and Key Points: How Adobe was created. Why geeks can create far bigger companies than salespeople. Who performs better, technical founders or non-technical founders? The story of  Freee the Cloud-based accounting company and why it was created. Why an entrepreneurial society in Japan was started. Headline VC and their early-stage investments. The beginning of the entrepreneurial culture in Japan. Lessons learned from Groupon in Japan.

HOW TO MAXIMIZE YOUR IMPACT ON THE PLANET

How to Maximize Your Impact and Reach on the Planet Something which has been very interesting, currently living here in Phnom Penh Cambodia, at this point, it seems that Cambodia is just a new colony of mainland China. For example, if you look into the Belt and Road Initiative, something I witnessed very interesting was a map of it, and Vietnam, Cambodia, Southeast Asia in general, we're all painted in red. My point of thought that is that all of these countries which are bordering China, have essentially become assimilated into China. Therefore my basic idea is this: Can people in mainland China access your photography, website, and stuff via their Internet? Or via baidu.com (their local Google)? how open source is the future I believe the reason why open source is the key to maximize your impact and influence in the world is this: Stuff is open source, it is more likely accessible by anyone on the planet. And something else I've realized is this: maximizing your impact, notoriety, fame, and influence is more important than money or any other metric of success. “Baidu yourself” And one of my life goals was to become number one on Google for “Eric Kim”. Now that I have achieved that life goal, a simple thought: If you search your first and last name on baidu.com, will you show up? Think globally Something I really like about the new iOS beta is one of the default wallpapers is a GPS coordination of planet earth. It is a nice visual, as it has us to think bigger, more globally, at the earth scale, rather than our myopic and shortsighted view of our own locale. For example, I like the Socrates quote — when somebody asked him where he was from, he said “I am a citizen of the world“. I believe this is an attitude we should all adopt. Why are people so racist towards mainland Chinese? Why is everyone so fearful of mainland China, and why do so many people disdain Chinese tourists? Several thoughts: First of all, mainland Chinese tourists often do not act with “proper“ notions of Western modernity. For example, yell yell, speak loudly in public, spit in public, etc. They order and boss people around like they are their slaves or servants. This is very anti-western notions of what is considered “proper“, if you think about the UK British notions of Victorian properness. Second, honestly, I think a lot of people hate mainland Chinese because they are so rich. For example, when I was in Hong Kong, it seems that everyone is low-key jealous of the mainland Chinese tourists, because they are so rich, and can just buy out the Gucci, Louis Vuitton, or Hermès store by themselves. Third, it seems that all nations, in order to thrive, need some sort of enemy. For example, if you observe the goldeneye movies, or even modern day American politics, there is always a foreign enemy. Whether it be the communist, the Russians, the Chinese, etc. Funny enough though, now that a lot of mainland Chinese people prefer to watch American cinema, anti-Chinese sentiment is being toned down. For example, when I watched the pacific rim two movie, which was funded by a Chinese company, the western guys and the Chinese guys all worked together to fight off the aliens. I think this is a good thing. Censorship, whether

He talks about his first-ever experience being in front of the camera and how he found success in his brief role by learning to connect to audiences via imagination.From 2006 to 2007, Chuk served as the Japan Director for The Asia Foundation, where he developed partnerships within both the public and private sectors to engage in dialogue regarding international affairs, ODA, national security, and Corporate Social Responsibility. He discusses the best approach to developing relationships with Japanese companies and government entities as a foreigner.Chuk breaks down his current role and the most memorable campaigns he has worked on so far as Executive Producer for 3Minute, a media and influencer marketing company focusing primarily on young female consumers in Japan.Finally, Chuk gives his best advice to those who are looking to enter the Japanese market in a post-COVID world. He says that cultural insight is foundational, as well as a commitment to patience since, as with other foreign markets, establishing roots in the country takes time. Key Quotes:“Whatever you are trying to communicate, it's important to imagine how other people are seeing it and to put it in context around what is the best way to reach them. You have to make sure that the story isn't meaningless, but that it resonates with them.” “Whether you're partnering with a government agency or a corporate entity on a project because you need the funding or a venue, you have to think in terms of what the benefit is to them.”

Topics Discussed and Key Points:●      The type of advertising that resonates with Japanese consumers●      Marketing lessons learned after working at Grey Group from 1988-1991●      Ecommerce in mid-1990s Japan●      Brands that did in-store marketing well in the 1990s●      Producing media for Coca-Cola in Japan●      Working with the teams at the 2008 and 2012 Olympics, and the 2010 FIFA World Cup Episode Summary:Today on The Negotiation, we speak with Chuk Besher, Executive Producer at 3Minute, the digital media arm of GREE, a Japanese internet media company that provides mobile social networking and mobile technology services.A content marketing specialist, Chuk's clients range from the luxury, hospitality, fashion, and pharmaceutical industries. He leads the production of a variety of branded content for these companies, from events to video storytelling to advertising.Chuk speaks on the type of advertising which resonates with Japanese consumers, which he calls “advertising that is not advertising”. He says that consumers are sophisticated enough to turn away from traditional, in-your-face messaging. Good marketers craft stories around their products and services which not only inspire, entertain, or educate, but also allow consumers to relate to the brand itself.He shares lessons learned about brand localization after being recruited into Grey Group as a fresh grad in 1988. Chuk explains that if you have a local brand which you are bringing into a market like Japan, it is not simply a matter of translating the copy. Grey taught him that having local knowledge and insight was even more important in bringing success to a brand in a new market.Speaking on his 8+ years of experience as Director of Branded Media for Coca-Cola, Chuk explains that the brand's immense success can be traced back to Coca-Cola's commitment to omnipresence. In today's market, however, it has now become important not just to be everywhere, but to be meaningful everywhere. This means having a symbiotic relationship between marketing and creative, and having the message, as well as the delivery of the message, be specific to the target audience.Finally, Chuk shares how he continued to use the approach of “advertising that is not advertising” during his involvement in the 2008 and 2012 Olympics, along with the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Key Quotes:“The type of advertising that resonates with Japanese consumers—and it's not unique to Japanese consumers, per se—is advertising that is not advertising.” “Maintain brand integrity—do not lose sight of what the brand stands for. At the same time, make sure that it is meaningful and resonates with the local consumer.”

That's not good.And there was a huge PE deal today, Avalara being taken over by Vista Equity Partners in a $8.4 billion deal.What else?

To him, while localization is an obvious consideration, the common thread that spells success for any company looking to succeed is a focus on effectively telling the story of the brand.In fact, despite the aging population, Jeff believes that there is a lot of opportunity for foreign brands to establish a strong base in Japan as long as “you have a compelling product that's attractively displayed and appropriately priced with a good story.” Key Quotes:“There is no ‘right' or ‘wrong' corporate culture. Every corporate culture has evolved to be ‘right' for that entity.” “Japan is a different place, but what Japan is really looking for is your authenticity.”
