We are pleased to announce that we have partnered with RedFern Digital
to present the November series of China Chat.
Via this series, we will work with leading names in the fields of consumer and retail to take a deep dive into the China market journey: exploring aspects ranging from routes to market; to establishing a digital presence; building brand reputation and consumer engagement; and adjusting your market strategy to meet and respond to China’s latest consumer trends.
In the second session of this series, we will discuss how brands can build up their credibility and consumer base online in China: exploring the different platforms available and linking each channel to sales outlets, and providing information on what brands can expect.
If you thought there is a great selection of products in the imported foods section at your local supermarket in the UK, take a look at any category page on a Chinese cross-border e-commerce platform and prepare to be amazed!
Nowadays, digital consumers in China are spoilt with choice. Between February and April this year, over 200,000 new products were launched on Tmall Global alone. Gone are the days where brands have the luxury of getting their products into market through the highest bidding platform or distribution partner.
Chinese consumers have every brand and product right at their fingertips and competition is fierce. The importance for UK brands in building brand credibility online in the China market is now more important than ever.
In this session, Ryan Molloy (CEO of RedFern Digital) will provide practical advice to UK brands on how they can build brand credibility online and win the hearts of Chinese consumers. The session will dive into detail on topics including the importance of Key Opinion Leaders, e-commerce platform marketing, cross-brand collaboration, the importance of platform connectivity, as well as strategic advice on getting it right long-term.
