China is a rapid growing market and as such a major force to be reckoned with. Formerly a place of cheap labour force, many companies settled in the vast land.

While some of these attempts succeed greatly (compare Walmart), many result in failures. This can obviously be attributed to many different factors, some on a strategic, some on an operational level. In this paper, we will take a closer look at ways how different global players failed their marketing in China and elicit different ways how not to do marketing in China, while subsequently exploring ways how to mediate this problems. Due to the length restrictions of this paper, the main focus will be posed on the first part, as direct cultural barriers are the most unique part of marketing in a new country. Meanwhile we will only briefly dive into the other 3 problematic fields.
