LETTER TO THE READERS
October 20, 2009
Dear Valued Subscriber,
When we started the ‘China Media Report’ newsletter, our mission was simple – to share our thoughts and experiences in regards to business in China. We know first-hand the in-tricacies and the dynamics of working over there with all our different projects from television and films to online and live events. Simply put, we’ve learned a lot and wanted the best way to pass valuable information to others.
We launched our newsletter only several months ago and, today, we have a strong base of subscribers reading our weekly report. Some of you have agreed with what we have to say, some of you have not. My vision for the newsletter has never been only one direction, from us to you, but to make this a two-way street – i.e. we love your feedback and comments. I’ve always thought the best lessons are not from books and articles, but from experience and relationships.
With all the newsletters we’ve compiled together, we are sending to you our first quarterly volume of the ‘China Media Report’ as a way of thanking you in your interest in what we do. We encourage you to spread the word and forward to your peers and friends to sign-up for our newsletter or, at the very least, reach out for an introduction. We would love to hear from you.
Thank you for making “China Media Report” a success!
Vice President of Business Development
