Newsletter: 10,000 vie for a single Chinese civil service post

Dear Global Business Enthusiast,

Michael Michelini (@michelini) here. You’re getting this email because you requested my periodic thoughts on international business from Hong Kong.

[Edit: Actually, it’s possible that you’ve never gotten an email from me. Somebody might have just given you the link to this page, which is an online archive of an email that I sent to folks who had asked for it. If you’d like to get articles like this in your inbox, totally free, about once a week or two, give me your email address.]

This week: Amazon Prime in China, Big Data for Humans, Civil jobs and more

Global products will reach customers in 82 Chinese cities within five to nine days, Amazon said. The minimum purchase for free cross-border shipping is 200 yuan, or about $29. Free domestic shipping requires no minimum purchase.

Global From Asia News

Listen to this week’s podcast

This week’s podcast we are talking conversion optimization – taking a break from bank and incorporation business and learn some international marketing tactics with Joris, enjoy!

Considering selling your business, specifically a HK one – we blogged about it this week

Hong Kong Supercharged News

Tons of people asking me for tips on being more effective and productive in their work – is this a reasonable “training series” that would match Global From Asia brand? Thinking to add it here instead of making a new brand, what do you think?

Video of the Week

My buddy Chris Gormley says this was his favorite video blog yet – my visit to an Amazon FBA meetup that Chris Davey put together in Guangzhou
