From WPBeijing- 2003- to Bic Brands
Originally founded post SARS, in Beijing, 29th Oct 2003 by Everlyne Yu and Peter Bicknell as WordPerfect Marketing Studio.This cheeky little foreign upstart aimed to capitalise on the “English Language Fever” running rampant in China following her successful bid for the 2008 Olympic Games.
We offered “English Polishing” and western marketing tips to Chinese brands with an eye to the gazillions of mega rich games visitors. Building on this we became WPBeijing, expanding our services to general marketing for both local and International brands.
By sharing our rich history, experience and knowledge Bic Brands offers bespoke China marketing services support, workshops and training.

China Media: Support for International Brands
Frustrated with mainstream media’s focus on the salacious and sensational aspects of China and the difficulty foreign brands-especially newcomers- faced in finding relevant, current China biz news, Peter formed Aim2D Media in 2018.
Aim2D is Bicyu’s FREE “Infocational” sister. As well as curating a collection of links to real time China biz, marketing and tech trends and articles it works with Everlyne to provide training, mentoring and support for both Chinese and foreign brands in China.
If we have learnt one thing since 2003, it is that informed, educated clients are easier to deal with and results are often better. That makes for a happier client!
Launching a business in a foreign country is always a challenge. Language and cultural differences are enough of a head ache.
In China however businesses face an an extra hurdle in sourcing accurate, current information. Traditionally knowledge equates to power so even Gvt officials were scant with support.
Ok, FAKE NEWS is now a joke buzzword, but mainstream western media does tend to be skewed to click bait headlines and “stories” driven from Social Media.
Many Chinese media publications tend to bend the other way, with oft rosy pieces verging on policital propoganda.
This is by and large, unhelpful for any business trying to source objective, useful data on China.
It is difficult to find publications with an objective viewpoint leaving brands largely in the dark. However, solid info is available.
There are some very excellent, objective business orientated news sources in China – and out of – if you know where to find them.
The problem seems very few foreign firms knew how or where to access it. For smaller brands trying to get a handle on the China market it is frustrating. This is the issue Aim2D was created to solve
To solve that problem, Aim2D takes a 2 pronged approach.
1/ We curate a selection of links to 8 or 10 sources we feel provide relevant, balanced reports on topics and sectors useful to organisations focused on the China market.
The latest China business, tech, marketing or social happenings, updated often, some daily so you KNOW what you are reading is real time, cutting edge, trending in China today. [example below]
To balance that, we “cherry pic” various articles or news pieces and highlight them. Often we include our own take or that of other foreign brands we know and trust. Those, who like us, have served their time, paid their dues in China so can speak from experience and knowledge.
Looking for even more choice?
Have it your own way!
