Hello, greetings again from Shunyi, a stones throw from Beijing Capital Airport for Tuesday, April 27. Where did that month go? Today’s, short post is one of abbreviations, starting with CIW, or China Internet Watch. Our headline. But before we go there, lets dig back a wee bit into our history. Yes, we were once known as WPBeijing, however before even that …….
Welcome back. OK way back in 2003 we founded Word Perfect Marketing, later to be known as WPBeijing. Notice the name. No mention of digital back then. Digital Marketing? What was that?WeChat, Tiktok? Never heard of them. QQ, Baidu and Sina blog were your only options then.
Yet before that, late 2000 in fact, were began as Bamboo Tiger International or BTI to our friends.
BTI was initially more focused on research and analysis. China Marketing Stats. Figures.
Which brings is nicely back to our China business article headline; China Internet Watch.
About China Internet Watch
Over the past few weeks, we have looked at some of the publications we follow and recommend as good reading and data sources sources for brands in or contemplating entering the busy, lucrative but oft confusing China market. We have looked at Jing Daily as a good guide to luxury in China, and a slightly alternative look at culture and trends in China from Sixth Tone. Today we will take a peek at CWI or China Internet Watch.
China Internet Watch (CWI) in their own words are:
part of Incitez Pte. Ltd. (a digital consulting company based in Singapore), is a leading digital media on China digital trend and insights. CIW shares China digital intelligence across several industries including retail, travel, technology, mediaChina Internet Watch
For example, this brief extract on the China pet market;
Continuing with the China pet theme for a moment, here is another extract from CIW’s research:
Pidan, established for five years targeting the cat food and toys market, sells more than 100 million yuan a year on Tmall. Its second-year sales already reached 50 million yuan. Those of you in the “Pet Know” will be familiar with the Pidan Igloo litter box. One of the most expensive, yet also very popular cat litter boxes. Their clay and tofu litter is also a popular product in China and is indeed endorsed by our poster cat, our very own Snowpaws.
China Internet Watch is a freemium mix of China news and data publication producing white papers, E-books as well as basic – free – overviews on many of China’s busy business sectors. Definitely worth while following on Facebook or subscribing to their news letter.
