分享网上开发一个客户的经历 – 附所有邮件及简单分析

1.Enquiry—12th,Oct 2010
Buyer’s Message

Subject: I’m interested in your ramie solid dying fabric,ramie piece dyed fabric,solid dyed ramie fabric

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

we’re looking for a ramie or linen supplier, because we are having a 100% ramie sample pant here which should be produced.

Thank you very much!

Best regards,

XXX

2.从邮件的简单程度来说,其实第一感觉不是很好,因为内容非常简单,简单的让所有的人都想忽略,觉得这家伙肯定没有实单在手…
昨天收到了50%的订金,我总结一下,还是不要眼高手低,不要想当然,不要以自己简单的过往经验随便断定一个看似初级无意义的询盘..

3.1st feedback on 12th,Oct 2010

4.很常规的一个回复,目的是套他手里的资料,看看到底是不是潜在的客户,手里是否有原样…10月15号,得到他的第一封回复如下:
Dear Gavin,

5.收到这封邮件,我立刻在心里给他打了7分,有原样在手,寄过来分析,说明潜在性很大,坐等原来过来,然后分析面料规格,再进行服装报价…回复如下:
Dear xxx,

Gavin

6.10月19号,得到他的邮件回复如下:
Dear Gavin

Okay thanks, the UPS tracking number is:******

Please be so kind to quote in linen and cotton too – what kinds of fabric do you offer?

Thank you very much!

Best regards,

然后立马补充一封邮件回复:

Gavin

7.10月21号,收到客人原样,分析后给客人去邮件:
Dear xxx,

Confirmed received yr original sample this morning.After analying the specification and measuring the
pants measurement with M size,we can only quote approx price to you as below:
Pure Ramie Pants USD5.70/Pc FOB Shanghai;
MOQ: 5000 pcs/order; 2000 pcs/design(colour),200 pcs/size

Whenever you propose more detailes,such as total measurement charts,special packing…,Thus exact price
can be quoted per detailes.

You refered to quote linen cotton fabric too in last mail?How to understand?Do you mean use linen cotton
fabric to make pants per yr original sample?But how’s the specification?Pls kindly advise yr comments.

Waiting for yr prompt reply.

Best Regards
Sales Supervisor
Gavin
当天下午就得到他的回复:
Dear Gavin,

Thanks for your kind message, but 5,70USD is really too expensive – please be so kind to quote the same pant in all over linen fabric and all over cotton fabric.

Regarding the sample, it should be exactly the same in size M – size S, L and XL should be arrange proportional to this pant size M EU standard in dark grey and black colour.

Please be so kind to get back to me asap!

Best regards,
XXX

立即回复如下:
Dear xxx,

Tks for yr prompt reply!

Compared with linen cotton and pure linen fabric material,making yr pants by ramie fabric is the lowest.M size is the smallest
one,so I am afraid the average price wll be USD5.80/Pc.I trust our pirce is very competitive,and you can compare the price
with other suppliers.

Could you pls kindly advise yr approx order quantity for referrence?Can match our MOQ or not?If there is any other query,
pls feel free to let me know.

Best Regards
Sales Supervisor
Gavin
从这里,我可以判断他是个实在的买家,计较价格是商人的天性,但是实际上我知道,我的价格一点都不高,而且我很后悔价格报低了,好再效期报的不长,我断定肯定还会重新报价的,因为这时候很多细节都没定…现阶段是要再判断一下订单具体有多大,太小了也不能做.所以试探性问了一下大概的数量,如果太小,没有再进行的必要…

他当即回复了:
Dear Gavin,

Thanks for your kind message again – size S will be the smallest size, the sample you got is size M.

Please be so kind to quote the pant in full linen and full cotton fabric too and arrange samples in dark
grey and black colour, right!?

After receiving the samples, we’ll discuss about the quantities and colours.

Thank you very much!

Best regards,
XXX
避实就虚,不回答大概的订单数量,只是我报其他面料做这个裤子的价格,于是回复到:
Dear xxx,

Tks for yr mail.

We will calculate price of pants which made by linen cotton and pure linen material
as well as similar weight to yr original sample.And will quote to you later.

Pls kindly advise yr approx quantity for our referrece,if it’s below our MOQ,there is
difficult for us to make that order.Hope you can be kindly understanding.

As to the sample pants making,we ususally charge sample cost from clients,and will
reture it back after bulk order.Is it available for you?Pls kindly advise yr comments.

Best Regards
Sales Supervisor
Gavin

8.10月22号,他回复如下:
Dear Gavin,

the pants and colours first to decide the quantities.

Please be so kind to send me the sample charges invoice.

10.10月27日收到他邮件,想要变更颜色:
Dear Gavin,

Thank you very much!

Best regards,
XXX
打样就没必要那么讲究,能帮你弄到颜色相近的布就不容易了,主要是检测一下做工还有品质能不能达到你原样的水准就OK了,然后回复他说:
Dear xxx,

We just make sample pants by using our fabric shipping sample,there are no dark grey colour of pure linen fabric,also
only dark blue colour in linen cotton fabric,pls kindly understanding.

I think the most important thing should be quality not colour.Of course,there will be no any problem on bulk order
making per yr interested colour.Hope you can confirm our sample making arrangement.Tks in advance.

As to the swathes,I’ll send some to you together with pants sample.

Best Regards
Sales Supervisor

他也真是好说话,然后回复说:

Dear Gavin,

Okay thanks, no problem – but please be so kind to send dark grey colour swatches too, because we have to
choose the colours finally.

Thank you very much!

Best regards,

这封信,没有得到回复,我估计他肯定是在跟买家那边磋商,因为我肯定他只是个中间商而已,所以没事,先给点时间缓冲缓冲,反正单子十有八九跑不了…

14,12月1日,又过了一个多礼拜,可以再去一封信了…
Dear xxx,

然后我决定,如果这封信他不回,我的下一封邮件就是半个月后…那就是12月16日
不过三天后,也就是12月4日,他来了邮件:
Dear Gavin,

Thanks for your kind message again – so now, finally we discussed the order; please be so kind to check as follows:

最怕不能一步到位的,果不其然,又来变,原样没口袋,现在想加两个,细节咋样你也不说,我咋跟你加钱呢?这个时候订单雏形来了,重新报价吧,细节该落实了…
第一步:
Dear xxx,

Good day to you!

Best Regards
Sales Supervisor
Gavin/Goldentex
先告诉你价格变了的原因,再跟你来详细的;
Dear Gavin,

Thanks for your kind message and telephone call again – so now, I have to check the pockets with my boss tomorrow.

Please be so kind to send me the price without pockets again, furthermore do you have an European measurement chart
to fit the sizes?

Thank you very much!

Best regards,
XXX
回复:
Dear XXX,

Tks for yr email.

The newest quotatation is as below:
Linen cotton pants(same as to sampling,without pockets)
USD7.50/pc FOB Shanghai by sea;
Validity:8th,Dec-23th,Dec 2010

Yr original sample is not a regular one,it’s not same as what we made before.
So there is no measurement chart for yr referrence,hope you can be kindly
understanding.Pls advise yr measurement chart to us.Besides,pls confirm the
pockets ASAP.We’d like you’d better not add pokects this time,bcs add any
little,we need to make sample again,and then send to you again for confirmed.
it will take too much time.Pls kindly advise yr comments.

Any query,pls feel free to let me know.

Best Regards
Sales Supervisor
Gavin

新价格出来,估计吓了他一跳,从USD6.70跳到USD7.50,一下来了80个美分,而且还不包含口袋的,估计来了口袋后,还得加钱。然后打了个电话过去说了下口袋的事,再就是尺码的问题,他回复邮件说:
Dear Gavin,

Thanks for your kind message and telephone call again – so now, I have to check the pockets with my boss tomorrow.

Please be so kind to send me the price without pockets again, furthermore do you have an European measurement chart
to fit the sizes?

Thank you very much!

Best regards,
XXX
第二天回了一封比较迂回的邮件:
Dear XXX,

Good day to you!Hope yr everything is fine.

Is there any positive feedback from yr boss?How about the pockets and measurement chart about these three size?Meanwhile,pls send gray and black colour for lab dip making.You know there is not much time left before Chinese Lunur new year,I advise we’d better confirm the order and finish fabric making before Lunur new year holiday.Otherwise,it may delay shipment of the pants.I guess these pants are for 2011 summer season,we’d better catch the time.

Best Regards
Sales Supervisor
Gavin

15,12月11日,发过来口袋的设计参考,我再核价
Dear Gavin,

Thanks for your kind message again – so now, please be so kind to remove the fake side pockets and arrange side
pockets on both sides as per attachment with 20cm depth.

It would great, if you’re going to arrange grey colour swatches of Pantone colour “Cool Grey 8” and normal
standard black colour.

Thank you very much!

Best regards,

口袋和颜色的问题基本上搞定

建议他口袋深度改成15CM,太长浪费布料,最重要是不好看;
Dear Gavin,
