There was even another possibility.
The more irrelevant the advertisements were to Chinese Medicine, the more likely it would attract people’s attention!
For example, it would definitely go viral if they placed an advertisement for underwear in this CG animation video!
However, if they really did that, Fang Qiu would definitely be subject to public disapproval. The advertisers who placed these advertisements in the video would definitely make a fortune.
In this era, the bottom line was the profits to be made!
They did not care whether Fang Qiu would be ruined or not.
It was not just a few major enterprises.
Almost every large company in the country had the same idea, so this advertisement placement was not only targeted at companies related to Chinese Medicine, but also at companies in all industries.
There were so many companies in the country that craved for the opportunity, but there were only ten advertising slots!
This time, it would be a big fight.
It could be imagined that once the listing of the ten companies was released, the announcement itself would definitely make them famous, let alone how effective the advertisements would be.
After all, the whole country and even the foreign media were paying close attention to this matter.
All the major enterprises started to hold meetings to discuss what they should do and the pricing they should offer.
However, those small-sized companies could only watch such a good opportunity slip away. It was not that they did not want to compete, but because it was impossible for them to win!
After Fang Qiu returned to Jiangjing, he asked the taxi driver to take him to the high-speed railway station immediately.
On the way, he also received a WeChat voice message from Jiang Miaoyu asking where he was.
Fang Qiu replied casually, “Jianghang.”
Then he did not pay any attention to it.
After getting out of the car, he directly bought a high-speed train ticket to Jiangnan from the Jiangjing high-speed railway station, then got in the car and rushed to Jiangnan.
It was almost noon.
Relying on his memory, Fang Qiu soon arrived at an independent villa area next to the West Lake of Jiangnan.
He recalled that previously, he came to this place alone.
He did not expect that he would come back again.
“Beep…” Approaching the villa that he was not so familiar with, Fang Qiu directly pressed the doorbell and then waited quietly at the gate.
After a while, an acquaintance appeared.
It was a very well dressed middle-aged man.
“Who is it?” Walking to the gate, the middle-aged man craned his neck and looked outside. When he saw Fang Qiu, he was stunned. Then he immediately opened the door with a smile and said, “Fang Qiu? Why are you here?”
Fang Qiu answered, “I’m here to look for Mr. Yang. There’s something I want to talk to him about.”
The middle-aged man thought for a moment and said, “Oh, I see. Come in first. I’ll tell Mr. Yang that you are here.”
“Okay.” Fang Qiu entered through the gate.
This was the villa of Yang Ningyuan, one of the richest men in Huaxia.
On the way back to Jiangjing from Jianghang, Fang Qiu had pondered about it carefully. Although these ten advertisement slots had been released to let the companies compete for them, it was still difficult for him to conduct the selection.
Fang Qiu was not in the business circle.
Therefore, it was necessary to find someone familiar with the process to select the bids for the advertising slots.
After pondering about it for a while, the only person Fang Qiu could think of was Yang Ningyuan.
As a renowned entrepreneur and one of the 50 richest people in Huaxia, Yang Ningyuan’s subordinates were all business elites. It should not be difficult for him to get some contacts who could help him out.
“Pitter-patter…” Soon, the sound of footsteps could be heard.
Fang Qiu looked up and found two men walking out of the villa. The one in front was none other than Yang Ningyuan.
Fang Qiu walked up with a smile, “Mr. Yang.”
Yang Ningyuan said, “It’s really you. Dr. Fang, why didn’t you tell me in advance that you were coming? I would have made preparations for you.”
Fang Qiu replied, “I came up with this idea on the spur of the moment. I’m sorry to disturb you.”
Yang Ningyuan laughed and said, “Not at all. It’s my honor to have you here. Come on, it’s windy outside. Let’s go in and talk.”
After that, he ushered Fang Qiu into the villa.
In the hall on the first floor, they sat on a sofa in front of a French window and enjoyed the sunshine.
Yang Ningyuan said, “Steward, bring me a box of good tea and make one cup for Dr. Fang.”
Fang Qiu hurriedly stopped him and said, “It’s okay. I’ll just drink water.”
“Okay, I’ll get some water.” The steward nodded, then turned around and poured a cup of water for him.
Fang Qiu said with a smile, “It seems that you’ve made a good recovery.”
Yang Ningyuan smiled gently and said, “Haha, it feels really good to come back to life. In the past, I couldn’t figure things out no matter how hard I tried. Now I’ve thought it through. Recently, I’m also learning to cultivate from a master. After all, a person must understand what he should do in his life. He has to be clear about it.”
“Sure enough, if one survives a great disaster, there will be a blessing in the future.”
Fang Qiu said with emotion, “Cultivation is a good thing!”
Yang Ningyuan looked at the beautiful West Lake outside the window and then said, “Actually, since I recovered, I have been staying here and rarely left the house because this place is too special for me. I almost had one foot in hell and felt as if most of my body had been buried in the yellow soil. I also came out of hell in this place and stepped on the yellow soil again.
“Looking at the waves outside, listening to the wind and recalling the feeling of being reborn.”
“This is a kind of cultivation.”
Yang Ningyuan said calmly.
Fang Qiu nodded with a smile. “I understand.”
Yang Ningyuan suddenly thought of something and said, “By the way, I heard that you went to the World Medical Exchange Conference held by the World Health Organization. At that time, some people in the country did a live stream on the Internet and I watched the whole process.”
Fang Qiu was a little surprised. “Oh?”
A busy man like Yang Ningyuan actually had time to watch the live stream on the Internet.
“Your performance was truly wonderful.”
Yang Ningyuan looked at Fang Qiu and exclaimed with appreciation. “Those westerners were astonished by you. At the end of the day, the legacy passed down from our ancestors is the most precious thing.”
Fang Qiu nodded and said, “Yes. It’s a pity that people in the world are so ignorant. Otherwise, Chinese Medicine would not have declined to such a state.”
Yang Ningyuan said, “I believe that you will make Chinese Medicine rise again.”
“I hope so.” Fang Qiu nodded.
At this moment, the steward served the water and then turned to leave.
Yang Ningyuan opened his mouth and said, “By the way, since you’re here, why don’t you help me check my body again? I can’t waste such a good opportunity.”
Fang Qiu agreed at once. “Okay, no problem.”
The reason why he came here was because he wanted to ask him for help. Now that Yang Ningyuan asked him for help first, it would be easier for Fang Qiu to talk about what he wanted to say next.
In fact, Yang Ningyuan was not stupid.
After so many years in the business circle, he had risen to be one of the 50 richest people in the country from that of a mere worker. No one could compare with him when it came to judging others.
Why did Fang Qiu come?
He did not know.
But he knew that since Fang Qiu came to him, there must be something he needed help with.
After entering the villa for such a long time, Fang Qiu was still chatting with him casually. He did not get straight to the point at all, which meant that he was still hesitating. Or was it due to his self-esteem that he did not know how to start.
Because of this, Yang Ningyuan wanted to make it easier for him.
He would ask for Fang Qiu’s help first.
His request would be equivalent to owing Fang Qiu a favor, so that Fang Qiu could state his request easily.
Besides, Fang Qiu was his savior. No matter what request he made, he would try his best to fulfil it. That was to say, he did not treat it as a business deal when Fang Qiu came to his house, but just treated him as a friend.
Fang Qiu got up and walked over to Yang Ningyuan to feel his pulse.
Fang Qiu said after the examination, “There’s no problem. Your body is recovering very well.”
“Okay.” When he heard what Fang Qiu said, Yang Ningyuan felt relieved and instantly became more energetic.
When Fang Qiu returned to his seat on the sofa, he finally spoke up, “Mr. Yang, in fact, I came here uninvited because I need a favor from you.”
Yang Ningyuan said, “Just call me Brother Yang or Brother Yuan.”
“Brother Yuan.” Fang Qiu nodded.
Yang Ningyuan said with a smile, “Since you have called me brother, let’s not beat around the bush. Just tell me what you want.”
Fang Qiu said, “I have a project now and I want to make a bid, but I don’t know how to do it.”
Yang Ningyuan was stunned and said, “You want to bid for it? What are you going to invest in?”
Fang Qiu was taken aback and said, “I’m not investing. I made a CG animation video and I’ve prepared ten advertising slots, ready to be sold.”
Yang Ningyuan laughed, “This is known as “calling for a tender”.”
Fang Qiu smiled awkwardly and said, “Uh… I mean, there are no lack of bidders for this project. The problem is that I don’t know how to go about doing it, so I want to get your people to help me with this, Brother Yuan.”
Yang Ningyuan asked, “There are no lack of bidders? How can you be so sure?”
Fang Qiu asked, “You have not surfed the Internet for the past two days, have you?”
Yang Ningyuan nodded and said, “No. It seems that this is not a small matter. I don’t know much about the situation now. Let me figure it out first.”
After that, he asked the steward to bring him the tablet computer.
He then started to check what was happening online.
The longer Yang Ningyuan looked at it, the brighter his eyes became.
When he finished reading, Yang Ningyuan did not even ask. He said directly, “No problem. I’ll help you with this!”
Fang Qiu asked hurriedly, “How much will the staff cost?”
Yang Ningyuan waved his hand and said, “There’s no need to talk about the money. You don’t have to pay for anything because you saved my life. I’m just doing you a favor.”
Fang Qiu shook his head and said, “This is different. I have to pay for it.”
Yang Ningyuan gave a wry smile, shook his head and said, “You’re really a man of principle. In that case, I’ll help you with this matter. If you really want to pay for it, can you give me a slot?”
“Of course, I will not take it without paying a sum of money for it. I’ll give you the average price of the ten advertising slots, which means that you just reserve a slot for me.”
Fang Qiu was stunned when he heard that.
He had not expected that Yang Ningyuan, such a rich man, would be interested in his small advertising slot.
“In the business circle, I have friends who are dealing with this. If I help you with this matter, it is inevitable that you have to give people some benefits.”
As if seeing through Fang Qiu’s doubts, Yang Ningyuan explained, “Besides, an advertisement auction also requires someone to get the first slot to set a high level so that it can attract more people.”
