China’s Most Valuable Brand

Dec. 15, 2009

China’s Most Valuable Brand

Key Learning Points (Preview):

抱怨 (bàoyuàn): v to complain 

信誉 (xìnyù): n reputation 

In December 2009, China’s most valuable brand list was “揭晓 (jiēxiǎo) announced” in New York and 100 Chinese consumer brands “进入 (jìnrù) entered” the final list, including “联想(liánxiǎng) Lenovo,” and “TCL.” “中国最有价值品牌 (Zhōngguó zuì yǒu jiàzhí pǐnpái) China’s Most Valuable Brands” was Haier Group, which has won the award for eight consecutive years. How did Haier win the “冠军 (guànjūn) champion” of China’s most valuable brand? Haier is a manufacturer for “家用电器 (jiāyòng diànqì) household electrical appliances,” such as washers, air conditioners and so on. Haier is recognized in China for its products’ “质量 (zhìliang) quality” and customer service. There was a story about the birth of Haier “大地瓜 (Dàdìguā) Big Sweet Potato” washing machine. Once Haier’s CEO “张瑞敏 (Zhāng Ruìmǐn) Zhang Ruimin” heard that farmers “抱怨 (bàoyuàn) complained” about the bad waterspout of Haier’s washing machines, because they washed big sweet potatoes using the washing machines. He said: “客户的难题就是我们的课题. (Kèhù de nántí jiù shì wǒmen de kètí) A customer’s problem is our task.” Shortly,” Big Sweet Potato” washing machine was launched in the market. When Haier listened to its customers and their “反馈 (fǎnkuì) feedback,” its “满意度 (mǎnyìdù) satisfaction level” and “信誉 (xìnyù) reputation” improved.

Being a demanding blogger, I’m blessed to see others taking initivative and contributing to the community.

Well, that is certainly great, but what about additional options we’ve got here? Would you mind publishing a further article regarding all of them too? Thank you!

Well written information, and that i currently realized that some groups are more likely than others (since all of us are unique) would share the same idea. I hope you keep this blog performing well.

I precisely wanted to thank you very much yet again. I am not sure what I would’ve used without the actual points contributed by you on that theme. It truly was the frightful difficulty in my view, but coming across the very specialised mode you treated it took me to jump over delight. Now i am thankful for the work and thus trust you realize what an amazing job you happen to be accomplishing instructing other individuals through your site. Most probably you have never got to know any of us.

Without a doubt that i am going to be returning to view far more updates and read beneficial thoughts again in your web page! Thanks!

Superb! Generally I never read whole articles even so the way you wrote this information is simply amazing and also this kept my interest in reading and I enjoyed it. You need great ability as a copywriter.

Well crafted document, and i currently understood that some groups are more inclined than others (since all of us are unique) would share the same idea. I hope you keep this blog functioning well.

Hi there fellow blogger! I’m a newbie to the blogosphere but I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your blog here about wikipedia noni, it kept me reading all the way to the end… And then I went and searched for some more posts after that. :) Keep up the good work, I’m always looking to learn more about Noni Fruit, especially.

Few things are more inspirational than browsing through your post here after a long day. Your fresh insight keeps me, and surely others, motivated and informed about Noni Fruit. Don’t ever stop posting like this one on wikipedia noni, ok?
