B2C (Business to Consumer)
The basis of Prorectors marketing consists of a self-developed e-commerce model, Scandinavian House. The intention is to create an established trust among selected target groups who are exposed to the brand in the right forum as the buyers (both B2B and B2C) are inspired by Scandinavian House Nordic Selection products and thus become repeat customers.
B2B (Business to Business)
Negotiations are underway with networks and organizations including health food, food and department store chains, gym chains and hotels, restaurants and catering in the HORECA segment as well as sports and sports-related Chinese organizations.
Targeted marketing is prepared for the large ethnic groups who, by tradition in China, have a very high level of trust in imported health and children’s products. Demand for quality and safety-classified products has increased very sharply in recent years. Here, marketing also takes place via various local partners, social media and forums. For this purpose, agreements have been established with a number of partners as well as web portals such as JD, Tmall, Pinduouo, Alibaba and Little Red Book and more. Product launch and sales with trained sourcing agents as well as via social media and selected influencers. Continuous outreach activities via own sales team.
