We are sharing this topic and pretty much entire article from The Luxury Conversation because on the topic of LOCALISATION in China- and others- we’re aligned in our beliefs.
We have been content to sum it up with; “Well, China is not one huge 1.4 million market.”
This article takes it several steps further.
The Luxury Conversation spoke to Lee Folland, Head of Research at Shanghai-based strategy and communications agency Gusto Luxe. Lee shared a few insights from a recent localisation project that revolved around how Chinese naming, messaging and assets, brand tone, collaborations and positioning USP are underpinned by a research-based strategy.
So, we are sharing this because we receive some form of referral payment, yes?
Not even close – pun intended.
The Luxury Conversation is based in Shanghai, we, Beijing, so we can’t even share a pot of tea.
Luxury is arguably one of the most competitive niches, even more so in China. And, if you needed us to tell you that you really shouldn’t be thinking about it. Subsequently, if you are in or thinking about the China lux market you need the very best support and people money can buy.
We just happen to believe that the Luxury Conversation is one of those.
End of story.
Furthermore, just as Aim2D is part of the Bicyu Collective The Luxury Conversation is part of Gusto Luxe, integrated marketing solutions for global luxury lifestyle brands. A perfect combination, like strawberries and cream, roast beef and Yorkshire pud and Aim2d Bicyu.
Oh, and the answer to our headline question.
Easier said than done in China.
