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!
