Starting building your followers in China via Weibo and WeChat.
China Social Media Marketing.
Engaging with Chinese on Social Media.
The social media landscape in China is vastly different from the rest of the world. Names like Weibo, WeChat and YouKu dominate the scene. There are well over 600 million registered Weibo users and more than 500 million active WeChat users of which 100 million are outside China. Additionally, Facebook, Twitter and other famous international platforms are blocked in the mainland of China.
Our social media team can work with you to create a strategy to connect your brand with a Chinese speaking audience living in China or overseas. And given our experience, we will ensure you expand your audience, grow your following and manage your presence to maximize the opportunities on social media.
By creating a flexible and dynamic social media marketing strategy, we can help you to position yourself on social media that will give you the right mechanisms to engage with your audience, build brand value and ultimately drive sales. We design and implement strategies to work in conjunction with your other digital and conventional marketing activities to maximize the results of each channel.

KOL Engagement & Social Activities
Inbound Dragon will research and reach-out to specific KOL’s based on their ability to impact the social media program. Negotiate any fees, set clear objectives and manage the KOL engagement experience. KOL engagement programs are important elements to any Chinese social media program yet many Western companies fail to consider this.
Additionally, Wei Activities and social competitions are tactics that can be used to acquire new fans and create brand awareness. Although only used when aligned to specific goals, social activities are used in combination with content and KOL’s to complete a rounded social media program.
We use web analysis tools to monitor engagement, conversions and other metrics and create monthly insightful reports based on the data.
