How to promote a product?

I have a relative in China, who owns a steam cleaner manufacturer.  The products are much cheaper than similar products in the US market.  Any suggestions to look for the potential wholesale buyers?  thanks!

There is a lot more information you could provide them with enable me to give you a better answer. Is this product used by consumers or commercial entities or both? I think that the overall best way to do it would be to get A representative in the United States to act as the US marketing and distribution arm of the company. This would involve having a warehouse located conveniently to the port where the container of units from China with dock.

It would also involve distributing the units from that warehouse to the US customers. You could set up a US-based website to sell the item and do product demos and trade shows and such.

You could also sell through Amazon, eBay and other similar websites,

Hi Mike, thanks for your help!

the products can be used in both markets (consumes and commercial). I
would like to sell the products to distributing centers, or local retails.
I have no interest in selling the products via Ebay or Amazon.

Do you have any information about how to find the trade shows, local retail
stores, etc?
