Promotion of your products

Chinese consumers love sales promotions including free shipping, discount or flash sales. So the brands must concentrate above all on this matter. Tmall from Alibaba Group, is very famous for the different events that it organizes to promote and help products brands to be popular. You can also put some advertisement on the e-commerce platforms home page. Sometime e-commerce platforms are known to be specialized in special offers like VIP.COM. This fashion e-commerce platform has authentic brands witch grant discount and limited sales time of product with high quality. Since starting its activity the number of registered users has kept increasing. Many brands work with them to sells their products on VIP.COM.

This promotion is very important for brands because they can increase their sales and improve their brand awareness. On those well-established e-commerce platforms, Fashion brands get the support of the platforms impliying that they are backed up by the platforms. Such an action is most of the time what is needed to tip the edge in favour of the Fashion brand over another, which doesn’t have an e-shop.


With everything going digital in China, e-commerce platforms are not only a mean to have a direct access to Chinese consumers but a promotion platform as well. Brand awareness and brand image can both be improved through their proper use.
