    • August 15 - Change in EB5 Market – its all about marketing
      ImmigrationDaily

      Comment: Change in EB5 Market – its all about marketing

      Old EB5 Model-Seller's Market New EB5 Mondel-Buyer's Market
      Issuers Small number of Issuers
      (Project + USCIS approval = investment success)
      Large number of Issuers
      (USCIS approval & good project are commodities)
      Market Only China Multiple markets:
      China, India, Vietnam, etc.
      Roles Issuer gets project & USCIS approval;
      Chinese Agent does SOF and Sales
      Breakup of functions:
      SOF by US immigration attorneys,
      Marketing by Issuers,
      Sales by agents
      (A Good Project and USCIS approval are now commodities due to the large number of Issuers with both)
      Marketing Marketing NOT necessary for success
      (because market was a seller’s market with more demand than supply)

      Marketing Necessary for success
      (because market is now buyer’s market with more supply than demand)

      • Expo format gets results in many countries for many clients
      • Major Success in two new markets - clients who made many investments 2015 to 2017 hit balls out of the park in two Top 10 EB5 countries
