Let's Discuss your Project?
Every brands' needs, goals and budget are different. There is no secret recipe for success, therefore being able to design a relevant social media strategy for each of our clients is our priority. The Chinese social media landscape is diverse; getting to know all of the relevant platforms and choosing which one(s) you should be marketing on is very important to build an efficient marketing strategy on the Chinese market.
Opening an official account on each platform is just the beginning. You'll have to drive traffic and create engagement on your brand page. Catchy, useful and shareable content is the first step. It can be blog posts, pictures, videos... Interactions with your followers associated with community management is the starting point. Social media should be fun and interactive, but it is also the official public voice of your company. Your communication should be well thought and engaging. Contests and discounts are a great way to achieve this, as well as sharing useful tips and information. Paid advertising is another option to promote your brand on social media and we totally recommend you to do it on apps such as Douyin and Weibo, where you can reach out to a huge audience.
Being careful when purchasing is part of the Chinese culture. Buying impulsively is not very common. KOLs are a reliable source of information for Chinese consumers when investigating a brand or products. KOLs (Key Opinion Leader) are seen as pairs by Chinese buyers and are trusted a lot more easily than official sources of information such as your website. Since there is a sea of Chinese kOLs, so working with a specialised agency will save you a lot of effort and trouble with choosing the right influencers for your brand, especially if you do not speak Chinese.
