Baidu．Sina Weibo．Qihoo 360
China is a big potential market that creates ample opportunities for companies looking to overseas expansion. As one of the global leaders of digitization, there are around 900 million active Internet users, which makes digital ads one of the easiest ways for market entry.
China market is dynamic and unique, popular platforms like Google & YouTube are inaccessible and replaced by local products (Baidu, Weibo, and etc.), that’s why you need a professional agency and local team to develop the China Marketing Strategy.
Expand your business: Reach millions of potential customers online as a pilot market entry to learn the China customer behavior, and further expands your business to offline
Cost-effective: China has a vast territory with billions of population, thus traditional mass marketing (including print ads and out-out home ads) is relatively expensive. Through online ads, we can control the spending by bidding model, targeting, and media selection to balance the cost
Multiple Targeting: With a wide range of ad products and sophisticated targeting options, you can narrow the target groups by demographic, salary, social relationship and etc. to reach the right people for effective marketing
If you are exploring the China market, our team is working with major local partners to provide multiple solutions, develop effective China marketing campaigns with localized strategies and penetrative content that cater to local consumer preferences.
