Hong Kong is the promised land for wines and wineries. The appetite for fine wines in the area was undoubtedly enhanced by James Suckling (yes, the James Suckling), who’s had a semi-permanent base camp there for years.


Hong Kong is the promised land for wines and wineries. The appetite for fine wines in the area was undoubtedly enhanced by James Suckling (yes, the James Suckling), who’s had a semi-permanent base camp there for years.

If you’re going to sell premium, rare wine, there are few better places in the world than Hong Kong. Omtis Fine Wines, our subscriber, knows that very well. They do an excellent job sourcing and selling the world’s most sought-after wines to an audience made of connoisseurs.


Obviously, there are a lot of opportunities for wine sellers in Hong Kong and Asia in general. While the market is constantly growing and the demand for fine wines increases exponentially, sellers come up with new ways to keep their customers happy and engaged.

Omtis, for instance, sources the wines directly from the wineries. This way, they can offer some of the best wines in the world ahead of their competitors and do so at great prices.


Flourishing markets aren’t without their challenges. For Omtis, the biggest challenge is undoubtedly their growing competition. The world of wine is incredibly complex and rich — it takes a lifetime to barely scratch the surface.

So they have to be extra careful with the wines they sell and, more importantly, with the way they communicate with their audience. Segmentation is crucial for them. They need to be able to send the right promos to the right customers.

For instance, how would you approach someone who only likes old-world wines? Do you try to sell them a Carmenere nonetheless or do you stick to what you know they love.

Plus, you need different approaches for those customers who love to try the best wines themselves and for those who look for wines with aging potential to be added to their collection.

To help with segmentation and the creation of campaigns, Omtis uses Mailchimp and NetSuite. While this helps save them time in some respects, in others it adds to their plate.

If you want truly well-targeted campaigns (like Omtis does!) you would need to manually import data from one solution to the other. For instance, you need to see who opened what emails and clicked on what links in NetSuite, not just in Mailchimp.

This can’t happen if your solutions act like scorned lovers and never speak to each other.


To save time and gain better insights into their audiences, Omtis started using Mailchimp for NetSuite integration.
