Q 4.) What strategy would you choose to hire a Sales Manager for Apple Inc in China and Why?

China is one of the most promising markets in terms of sales potential. Apple Inc gets special benefits from China because

  • China accounts for maximum purchase of Apple smartphones and other Apple products
  • China also helps in maximum manufacturing of Apple products to be sold to the rest of the world

However, as a market, capturing the attention of Chinese customers is not that easy as there is a vast difference in the culture of China and USA. In order to appeal to the Chinese customers, it is essential to have a sales manager from China itself.

Therefore, my strategy would be to adopt the ethnocentric approach and hire a sales manager from Chinese ethnicity only. The benefits will be as follows:

  • The sales manager would be an effective communicator of product benefits
  • The hiring cost will be significantly lower as the company will not have to find accommodation for the manager
  • The Chinese sales manager will be well versed with the markets of China and will be in a much better position to guide the parent company (Apple Inc) as to where the potential scope of expansion for Apple Inc resides.
  • The hiring of local sales manager will also give Apple Inc a chance to compete on parity with its rival competitor Huawei which also is a dominant market player and enjoys the local privileges from China
