Marketing Communications in China Through WeChat

marketing-communications-wechat-china-feat

Marketing communication goes more personal

As people choose to be wiser online users, online marketers seek a better marketing communication tactic to get their audience’s attention. To do this, two things evidently become the key essentials: high-quality content and a more personal approach. But to some marketers in Asia, one more challenge gets in the way – marketing products and services to China. Aside from the basic content marketing communication strategy, marketing products to China can be more demanding. This is because you need to consider the applications that are open to and widely used by Chinese online users.

Are you wondering how you can achieve this digital marketing move for your brand?

Fortunately, WeChat can help many marketers solve the social media marketing equation. It is an all-in-one mobile chat application that is definitely widely used in China and many parts of the world. There are several reasons why marketers need to be present on this platform when targeting the Chinese audience. One of them is earning more followers in the Chinese market. For instance, The Shilla Duty Free Singapore has been active on WeChat since October 2014. And today, it continues to gain positive brand recognition in its target market in China. More subscribers continue to follow the brand as WeChat continues to grow in China in terms of number of users.

WeChat’s Best China Marketing Features

Create user segment for followers

WeChat has quite an organised group categorisation. Although most social media sites have features of assigning contacts to a particular group, WeChat takes it to a different level. Categories are so organised that you may group your followers according to gender and target that particular category with the right messages. For instance, target women for messages about women’s fashion; and men for men’s fragrances.

More ways to present special offers

Ever thought of engaging your fans through chat application? Well, that is indeed possible with WeChat. Did you know that this mobile chat application allows you create different approaches in presenting your offers and social media campaigns? Digital scratch cards, for instance. Or even e-coupons that is redeemable by your followers. These remarkable marketing communication approaches make your brand more engaging to your WeChat followers.

Reliable and valuable market research

Do you want to witness your social media analytics results soar positively in the China market? As marketers of the modern society, we should always value the things that our target market is most interested in. Through WeChat, you will get a chance to hold a one-to-one conversation with your followers. This is one of the best ways to implement your marketing communication strategy. Moreover, you may also make use of the Poll feature to gather more meaningful information. This move makes your market’s data and information more significant. In this way, targeting can be even more efficient, effective and proper.

Easy payment medium

Chinese consumers are now making WeChat as part of their daily lives by using the payment function of the mobile application. WeChat is able to store in funds and use it to pay cab fees, food and even fashion apparels and accessories. What makes it more interesting is that WeChat is working to integrate the app to offline settings that allows the use of QR codes for payments including payments on vending machines. Wouldn’t it be a great benefit to your brand when payments are made hassle-free through a trusted marketing communications medium? This means more sales can be generated for your business.

Cebu Pacific Japan: Soaring Beyond the Digital Borders

cebu-pacific-japan

Social media planning and engagement has truly come full circle across the most diverse of industries, particularly in airline businesses. With the need to immediately connect to target audiences, airline companies demand competitive digital media exposure to ensure return of investments. Such is the story of Cebu Pacific Japan – a success story worthy of telling.

Cebu Pacific Air is one of the most renowned airline companies in the Philippines, offering comfortable, convenient budget trips to and from the Philippines. Initially focusing on domestic flights before venturing international, this year it has expanded its reach to Japan with three destinations – Osaka, Nagoya and Tokyo. This expansion meant that Cebu Pacific had to target local Japanese travelers and Filipino residents in Japan, necessitating considerable digital presence to effectively establish brand awareness in these key markets.

Exhaustive research, aided with strategic execution, resulted to a highly successful online campaign. To this date, Cebu Pacific Japan continues to move further on the right direction with its digital efforts.

 Beyond the Benchmark

Effective targeting and positioning of Cebu Pacific Japan in the Digital space has led to a solid online presence with its dynamic online audience from social media platforms and even in search engines. IH Digital’s proprietary analytics tool, the iAnalytics, proved that the campaigns for Cebu Pac Japan have been working well above the industry standards.

 Bottom-line: Increased ROI

Statistics is nothing without significant conversions, which makes Cebu Pacific Japan a true success story in terms of harnessing the power of digital media and advertising. IH Digital’s continuous collaboration with Cebu Pacific Air has resulted to increased conversion as well as website transactions, through close monitoring and thorough research.

The Future is Flying High

Given the encouraging response of the Japanese audience to Cebu Pacific Japan’s engagement efforts and consistently outstanding media conversion rates, We can confidently forecast a sunny future for Cebu Pacific Air in terms of overall revenue and presence in the Japanese market, despite being fairly new in the market and with some competitive high fliers.

IH Digital has been working hand in hand with Cebu Pacific for its exposure in Japan – keeping an eagle’s eye on exploring more potent opportunities for the airline while maintaining a strong connection with its budget-seeking and practical audience. As its digital efforts hover above the rest, Cebu Pacific Air continues to soar high like flying on a clear summer sky: a match made in heaven.
