Hello again from Shunyi. Tuesdays we take a look at business, marketing, tech or social news in and around China. Later, on Friday, depending on availability, we bring you an image gallery or video from a different perspective of business or social life in China. As today is Tuesday May 31 we present a look at shiny new things in China marketing.
This was to be a short article warning of the long term dangers to short term marketing practices for foreign brands in China. We had decided to focus on brands who entered China with massive noise, or in marketing jargon “buzz.” This “buzz” often by way of celebrities, KOL’s or influencers and a strong China MCN campaign.
That was until we received our copy of the latest Marketing Cartoon from Tom Fishburne who, with his inimitable style of wit and insight, does a far better job than we could. So, we hope you enjoy ( and maybe even subscribe to your own copy of)
