Zhihu is only for Chinese users

No business in China without WeChat, Zhihu, Bilibili and Co.?!

Have you followed the current debate about the Chinese communication apps TikTok and WeChat? TikTok is very popular in this country. Probably the best known and most important communication platform is probably the “super app” WeChat, which has become indispensable in both private and business life. Unlike in Germany, communication in the B2B area in China is almost exclusively via WeChat. Purchases, sales and payments take place via the app, which has around 1.2 billion active users worldwide.


How important is dealing with Chinese platforms for German companies in the China business? We would like to pursue this question in our live online seminar with marketing expert Theresa Stewart from storymaker.


The online seminar gives you an overview of the communication and marketing landscape as well as the relevant platforms in China. Our expert teaches you the stumbling blocks in communication and marketing about China and (abducts) you into the world of WeChat. The online seminar consists of two 75-minute sessions with a half-hour break in between.


Seminar content:

  • Overview of the Chinese communication and marketing landscape
  • Stumbling blocks in communication and marketing about China
  • Exemplary customer journey B2B
  • WeChat as a marketing and sales tool
