The Types of Sourcing Features

AND WHAT TO EXPECT
FROM EACH

Now let’s get more specific. Here is a video that goes into detail about each type of sourcing feature, including what is and is not included in each. As you listen, ask yourself, “which of these features do I need to source a quality product?” Keep notes as you watch.

Do you have Post-Traumatic Sourcing Disorder?

Symptom 1: Elation
We got the sale!

Symptom 2: Disbelief
The factory thought this quality was OK?!?

Symptom 3: Panic
What can we do now?

Symptom 4: Shame
We lost the sale and our reputation!

What SOURCINGmojo is NOT

MYTHBUSTING

Let’s dispel some myths and set realistic expectations before we go any further.

1. Sourcing products from Asia is NOT easy and it takes hard work. SOURCINGmojo is here to do the hard work for you but this is a partnership and requires your input.  In order to be successful, it requires frequent communication and setting clear expectations and standards from the outset. We will always be prompt and straightforward with you to detail everything that is required for success. We ask you to reply quickly and thoughtfully so we can ultimately deliver the results you expect.

2. Sourcing products does NOT happen overnight. We do not live, teach or believe in get-rich-quick schemes. It takes time and diligence on our side to truly investigate the market for all potential manufacturers, qualify them, negotiate best pricing and terms, develop your product, set quality standards and implement agreements, before starting production and fulfilling orders. With that said, we have an incredibly experienced team and we work as quickly as possible to achieve your objectives.

3. Sourcing products and building a reliable supply chain from Asia is NOT impossible. When I came to China in 2008, I started from zero. Throughout the last 12 years, I’ve encountered nearly every possible crisis scenario and sourcing problem there is. I have lived and breathed the worst of it all to build a company made to ensuring you avoid those pitfalls and always  achieve the best possible results.

Who is Nate Sedgwick?

AND HOW DOES HE KNOW ALL THIS STUFF?

THE SHORT VERSION

I have lived in China for 12 years and speak fluent Mandarin (Chinese). I worked for a Chinese manufacturer at their production site in Xiamen, China for 8 years. I successfully invested in and continue to be a shareholder in other Chinese companies. I am married to my beautiful Chinese wife, Renee and have two children together. We currently own and operate the SOURCINGmojo headquarters in Xiamen, China

THE LONG VERSION

I’m a family guy in my early thirties and I learned about sourcing and supply chain management in Asia because I had to.

In graduate school for International & Comparative Politics, I chose to study abroad for 2 years in Dalian and Shanghai, China. At the conclusion of my second trip, I was hired by a Shanghai private equity firm to assist our invested companies with developing their international sales. At one of these companies, I worked closely with and eventually fell in love with a beautiful and intelligent woman that is now my wife. Shortly thereafter, I joined her family’s manufacturing company as a salesperson and worked my way up to Chief Marketing Officer, helping grow annual sales from $13 million to $50 million in 5 years. Through my experience working for a Chinese firm, I realized and witnessed that most foreign companies significantly struggled or just didn’t know how to source effectively. I saw the opportunity to help and started a company built to make a difference.

How SOURCINGmojo Began

HELPING WESTERNERS SUCCEED IN ASIA

Working for a Chinese manufacturer for 8 years, I sat on the Chinese side of the table meeting and negotiating with executives of foreign companies. It was startling to witness how nearly 95% of the companies we dealt with had very little understanding what they were doing. Most were very poor at negotiating pricing and payment terms, product and quality standards, tooling and supplier agreements, and everything else.

I felt sincere disappointment to see how poorly Western companies performed in this environment. It was clear to me that they faced two main problems. First, they did not understand Chinese culture or Asian culture in general. Flying to Asia 1-2 weeks per year and shaking hands with suppliers isn’t going to change that. Secondly, their sourcing operations and processes were either lacking or absent altogether. They lacked the professional experience of building, implementing and running a robust supply chain system.

The SOURCINGmojo team understands and lives Chinese and Asian culture, empowering us to always achieve the best possible results in any meeting or negotiation. Our team of passionate experts know everything about the sourcing process and have decades of experience working with a wide variety of manufacturers. Nearly all of our experts come from a manufacturing background.

We deconstructed the entire sourcing process so you can clearly understand which service(s) is relevant to your project or business. No matter the service you choose, you can rest assured that one of our experts will work with you 1-on-1 and take responsibility for the successful completion of your objectives.

SOURCINGmojo make sourcing from Asia a fair, efficient, understandable and professional experience for all companies. We take pride in delivering results for our clients.
