 Making the most of current trends

 

To do simple 

Traditional methods of marketing and advertising are not anymore in vogue right now, that’s a fact.

We notice a strong shift towards connection, engagement, interaction and fun, the new tendency and especially  in China.

Marketers mainly look for a conclusive achievement: a greater brand loyalty and product or service sales.

 

Tips to enter the trends

  • Getting to know the mindset and needs of your target audiences. Use this a basis for your digital marketing strategies.
  • Developing an understanding of the power of marketing referrals / word-of-mouth marketing in China.
  • Building a Chinese website. Optimizing it for mobile use is even better.
  • Spending time to become familiar with the various Chinese social networks, so you can develop different strategies for the ones you intend to use as marketing tools.
