Did you know?
Western social media platforms like Instagram, Youtube, Facebook, and Twitter are banned in China. However, there are a range of other platforms available such as WeChat and Weibo.
Why become an influencer in China?
Over 18% of the earth's population are Chinese, that's larger than Europe, USA, Russia, Canada, Australia, Japan, and Brazil combined! Over 854 million Chinese people use the internet and 71% are active social media users. This number is growing all the time, which means the audience volumes that are possible far exceed that of the oversaturated western markets.
Not only are there huge volumes of people in China using social media, they are also a very engaged audience, with the average user spending 5.8 hours on the internet per day.
Large and engaged audiences are an influencer's dream, but for this to be a viable revenue stream brands must also want to reach this audience. Millennials in China (19 - 35 years old) were born under the one-child policy. This means due to their lack of siblings they have higher spending power than your typical young adult because their parents took care of study fees and housing costs.
They spend about 70% of their income on socialising and dining out. The rest they will splurge on beauty treatments, luxury clothes, high-end home accessories, and traveling. This makes them the ideal audience for many consumer brands.
Like all nations, but particularly in China, audiences love to explore different cultures and engage with great content from around the world. However, because many western social media platforms are blocked and predominantly content outside China is distributed in English or other languages, western influences have not broken through to this market. Because of the demand for western content, many channels have popped up in China distributing stolen content from influencers without their knowledge.
What people are lacking to enable them to break into this market is knowledge of the different social media platforms, mandarin language skills, and understanding of the cultural trends. This is where Botella Originals and LINK Digital Media can help.
