KOTRA promotes cosmetics export by using reverse direct purchase
KOTRA and CJ Olive Young will hold ‘KOTRA-CJ Olive Young Global Special Promotion Exhibition’ for one month in November. The purpose of this event is to intensively market over 100 domestic cosmetics brands carefully selected by CJ Olive Young to promote sales through direct purchase. According to data from the Korea Customs Service, in 2021, the number of direct purchase exports and the amount of exports increased by 50.6% and 46.6%, respectively, to 40,497,000 trades and $1.745 billion. It seems that direct purchase is settling down as a new route for export of consumer goods. Products of participating companies are exposed to overseas consumers through ▲search portal (Google) keyword advertisement ▲SNS (Facebook) advertisement ▲discount coupon provision ▲influencer marketing. KOTRA Osaka Trade Center plans to actively promote sales events for Japanese consumers by using YouTube channels and Instagrams of local influencers. In addition, KOTRA supports overseas sales and exports of SMEs from various angles by arranging B2B consultations with buyers.
