Building your Best Strategy for Social Marketing in China
With Western social platforms banned in China, Weibo and WeChat dominate the Chinese social market, connecting users in ways perhaps similar to Western social platforms, but with unique marketing opportunities.
WeChat is similar in nature to WhatsApp. It offers instant messaging among friends, but also uniquely brands can connect with customers, although this requires brands to develop deeper relationships with brand advocates.
Weibo acts as perhaps a more traditional social platform, more similar to a Twitter. Advertising opportunities here are more generally targeted.
China is a huge market with a great deal of regional diversity. The Egg holds a deep understanding not only of Chinese social platform habits but also how brands can leverage spend to elicit the greatest impact.
