Ken Uchikura Newsletter Vol. 35

“Do you sell your products or service online? If you say no, you are so behind, you need to start selling online. If you do sell online, do you think you are selling enough? Do you think you can sell more if you do it right?”

Those are the marketing pitches that many online experts make to get you to spend money on them.

Do not listen. They do not work.

Think about the Internet as a country. Yes, a country. If you want to expand your business to a new country, what do you need? Do you just buy a real estate and build a store there? No, you do not do that. First, you find out if there is a need for your product or service in that country. Then you find the competitors in that country. You must determine if you want to sell directly to consumers or establish a distributor. Then, you test the market by selling your product or service at a very limited scale.

You do all that and more if you want to penetrate a new market. So why do you break the Internet like it's just small add on? Because the Internet does not cost you anything. Opening a new store in other countries should not stop you from doing your due diligence. Doing business is a big deal. So treat it like so. You need to work with experts … not marketing experts. Someone who is already selling on the Internet. Work with them.

Lastly, don’t give up. Internet is the way now, and the future. You cannot give up. Keep trying. I am trying a new thing every day. Let’s share ideas. Ideas are free.

Really Bad Round of Golf

I shot 103 today.
Nothing, absolutely nothing worked today.
I lost close to 10 balls too.
I hope I don't do this again.

I got this at Alibaba ... Made in China

I found this on Alibaba and I bought it.
Actually, I bought 10 of them for evaluation.
They do work.

Apple AirPods costs $159 ... This is way cheaper than that.
Amazing price.

Healthy Pizza

I microwaved it for 6 minutes.
I don't have an oven on R&D building.
I should not say Healthy Pizza, but it is a Healthier Pizza.
I found this at Costco yesterday.
The crest is made out of cauliflower.
I cannot tell. It was actually really good.

Costco Gas Under $3.00 / Gallon

Costco Gas
It went under the $34 mark today.
This makes you not want to buy an electric or a hybrid car.

My Newsletter

When you try to change something, you will always meet resistance. People are comfortable, or I should say, people, are very used to what they have and do not want to change anything. But without change, you are at a standstill. With the change, you are changing. Is it better to change? Only time will tell. But without change, you will stop growing. That is not acceptable.

I am trying to change the company. I am asking people to embrace the changes. Some took it well and some did not. But that is with all changes . Now I have to change myself. I am not in charge of the department. I am in charge of the company. I need to make sure I am doing what I am supposed to be doing.

I do have good people around me. It is time for them to take charge. I need to focus on the company as a whole not one detail at the time. That might be the biggest challenge for me. Letting go something you did is hard to do. But that is the change we need to embrace.
