Nixon Magazine jumpstarts doing business in China and shows how to avoid critical mistakes

Nixon Magazine is the brainchild of John Buck who lives and works in China. He was constantly meeting travelers stumped by the challenge of how to do business in China. So he put together a team and gathered all the essential information into a business tool kit that works on an iPhone or iPad.

Nixon Magazine is a hybrid of enhanced electronic publishing that mashes-up an App, an interactive guide with magazine articles and custom extras.

Before You Fly is the section that explains key things you need to know about China before you book a flight. It includes U.S.-based resources plus information about visas, trade consultants and best times to visit. You can even order dual language business cards to be delivered to your hotel when you arrive.

The City section tell you where to eat, sleep, drink…and find coffee. Instead of searching multiple websites, Nixon offers fast access to first hand knowledge. “When a certain coffee chain wouldn’t share their locations citing ‘proprietary information,’ one of our team rode a scooter around and logged the co-ordinates on her iPhone,” explains Buck.

The People section has interviews with those who know commerce in China. Business, culture and personal advice are all in the mix, updated each month to reflect changes like China’s recent trade agreement with Australia.

Direct/Connect. From the app you can find a car and driver, book a FedEx pickup or hire your own qualified translator. “Relying on a client’s translator is a common mistake,” notes Buck,

In summary Buck says, "Nixon is a short course in China commerce combined with tools that provide a virtual string to lead the business traveler through the maze of China's mega cities."

Available on annual subscription, with free updates, in Apple's Newsstand for $19.99.
