Hello and welcome back to Aim2D for Tuesday April 5th, 2022 which just happens to be Qing Ming, or Dead Peoples Day a 3 day holiday. So, if you have been wondering why your Chinese side have not been answering the phone…… If you have an interest in death and celebrations, these two links might be of interest. Otherwise, read on re our Covid and live streaming story.
But first, a quick recap and plug for Aim2D China Business News. We created this to fill what we saw as a gap in news about China that was useful, relevant and informative for foreign businesses contemplating the China market.
Breaking China Business, Marketing, Tech and social News
OK, lets get to it. In our page “Breaking News” we link to around a dozen different publications that carry credible, objective, helpful and relevant stories news or trends to help businesses, large or small, make the right choice.
On line V/S China Live Streaming
Over the past couple of years, Aim2D has covered the “Live Streaming” phenomenon in China several times, notably:
Back in February 2020 Yicai Global reported on Officials in China’s southern Island, Hainan, using live streaming to help move a glut of fruit and veggies caught up the logistics breakdown created by Covid.
Today we are returning to Yicai Global (one of our highly recommended China Business and Economic News providers) with this story.
This time, nothing to do with Covid – aren’t we all sick and tired of hearing about it? – but rather a look at China’s clothing market. In particular a comparison between Online and Live streaming. Which one is more effective?
Now wait, just before you switch of thinking uhhuh, clothing, not my sector or area of interest, think again. Actually this is a rehash of something we have said on Aim2D Media many times in the past, related to luxury.
In other words in China marketing, very often where luxury and fashion go, mainstream consumers are not very far behind. So any changes in either of those 2 sectors should be noted and watched as they develop.
So, lets come back to our heading and the burning, OK, slowly smouldering, question: In china today, which platform is going to see the best results in the clothing sector?
The answer link below may surprise you, on the other hand, it may not! Courtesy as we said, of Yicai Global – free!
Other China Tech, Biz or marketing news last week
End of March 2022 BYD announced they would cease making ICE automobiles and from April going forward, would focus solely on NEV. This makes BYD the words first company to move in that direction. China’s BYD Soars as It Becomes World’s First Carmaker to Ditch Fossil Fuel Cars
Sticking with motoring and NEV, Chinese automaker Xpeng announced a widening of its losses, some quote 60%. This is despite a 260% increase in sales last year or almost 100,000 vehicles. Xpeng’s top domestic competitor, NIO also posted a widening loss with slightly less total vehicle sales.
Thanks for reading our China news, marketing, tech and social media article – we hope it was useful, relative, informative, valuable.
