China already garners big share of global ad spends China’s ad spend is ranked #3 in the world. Asia expected to surpass other regions in the next few years

Despite the China Firewall, lots of equivalent and innovative platforms

Among platforms, Weibo is #1 2 competing providers (Sina Weibo and Tencent Weibo) 400+M Registered Users 100M posts / day 30M video views per day Most tier 1 cities and 70% hold college degrees Essentially the Facebook + Twitter of China

China loves to create content on Weibo Netizens don’t just consume, they also contribute (2 X USA average) and among highest in the world

Four things to remember 1. Need to use LOCAL PLATFORMS and be CULTURALLY RELEVANT; 2. ENGAGE with content creators; 3. Be STRATEGIC; 4. Don’t be afraid to ASK FOR HELP.
