Verify Your WeChat & Weibo: Why it Matters? | Digital 38

Determining the right social channels, such as WeChat and Weibo, to launch marketing campaigns in China is crucial for any brands, and the first step towards the right direction is to verify your accounts.  

Social Media Landscape in China  

China maybe virtually isolated when it comes to the world of Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram but the nation of over 1.4 billion tech-savvy people is as hyperconnected as everyone who have access to these global social media giants – thanks to local social networking apps like WeChat and Weibo 

WeChat and Weibo are two of the widely used social media platforms across Greater China. 

Official and verified Weibo account of Thailand’s IGNITE 

Outsiders often mistake these two as identical and the same, and this is why brands must employ the help of marketing specialists to avoid this common misconception. Weibo and WeChat have different features and selling points for businesses looking to leverage their platforms. 

Official & verified WeChat accounts

WeChat remains the top mobile app in China, garnering over 1 billion monthly active users while Weibo amassed 566 million monthly active users as of 2021.  

Weibo is dubbed as the ‘Chinese Twitter’, a more open microblogging platform while WeChat is more a tight-knit online community as it targets users in a more personal approach. However, this doesn’t mean one has ticked all the boxes than the other. Let’s see their clear-cut distinct advantages. 

Want to know more about popular social media platforms in China? Read our previous articles below. 

Key Differences Between Weibo & WeChat marketing 

  • Brands aiming to broadcast to a mass audience are far more suited to use Weibo as it is set to public.

  • For influencer marketing, users are more likely to follow celebrities or influencers through Weibo given the platform’s openness. 
  • WeChat can only be used in mobile, while Weibo on both mobile and desktop. Your WeChat marketing strategy needs to be mobile-friendly. 

Why Verifying Weibo & WeChat Matters? 

Like any marketing and advertising channels, building trust among potential consumers on social media is inarguably important. And one important step in doing that is to acquire the verification badge.  

Users need to make sure they’re reaching your brand’s official account in specific channels. You must clear the path for your customers’ journey by gaining that official status with a verified icon or badge of either Weibo or WeChat.

Why TikTok Matters for Beauty Brands?

Why TikTok Matters for Beauty Brands? | Digital 38

With TikTok rapidly growing to 1.2 billion users in 2021, beauty and skincare brands have turned to the platform to advertise their products. Let’s discuss how you can leverage TikTok for your marketing campaign.

TikTok & the Beauty Industry 

It comes as no surprise that more and more businesses are signing up on TikTok to reach a bigger and more engaged audience.  And the beauty industry is one of those that has thrived in the platform.

Presently, the Tiktok Beauty hashtag (#tiktokbeauty) has garnered 624.3 million views. Imagine what that reach can do for your business.

Why TikTok Matters for Beauty Brands? | Digital 38

The short-video format on TikTok allows users to learn more about a certain beauty product. The 15 to 60-second window per post gives you an opportunity to effectively communicate a message to your audience.

In the case of beauty content, you can post make-up tutorials, unboxing, reviews, to name a few.

Beauty Influencers on TikTok

Say you are only an entrant into the world of beauty let alone TikTok. One good way to let your brand be known is by collaborating with beauty influencers that are popular on TikTok.

More often than not, beauty influencers will have the same target audience as you. Their followers have already engaged in a social contract of trust and genuine interest when they clicked on that follow button maybe weeks, months, or years before.

Why TikTok Matters for Beauty Brands? | Digital 38

Consumers of beauty products are doing away from traditional marketing in favour of influencers due to perceived trust. They no longer trust the smiling model on a billboard. The preference for real and genuine testimonies is on the rise.

TikTok’s tagging feature and in-video links to online sales realise conversion instantaneously. It not only fosters aesthetics but also aids businesses in providing tools for sale.

Your Ultimate Guide to WeChat Ads

Your Ultimate Guide to WeChat Ads

Publishing ads on WeChat is a huge opportunity for brands looking to widen their reach and increase awareness. In this guide, we will introduce to you what WeChat Ads are all about and how you can effectively leverage them for your growth.

What is WeChat Advertising?

WeChat advertising is part of Tencent Ad Solutions that enable businesses to broadcast promotions and advertisements on two major segments on WeChat – Moment feed and on your official WeChat account.

In general, this advertising program intends to increase your followers on WeChat, drive website traffic, and yield app downloads.

How Does WeChat Ads Work?

To advertise on WeChat, you must first do these three steps:

  1. Verify your official account
  2. Check your eligibility first and register as an advertiser
  3. Top up your ad account

Once you’re all set up, here’s how advertisements are processed from campaign goal-setting to review.

Ineligible for WeChat Ads

However, not all brands are allowed to run WeChat ads. Particularly, companies or brands belonging to the following categories* are restricted to advertise:

  • Overseas real estate investment and leasing
  • Medical
  • Bird’s nest, sea cucumber, and similar food products
  • Tobacco
  • Casinos

* This is not an exhaustive list. All cases will depend on the WeChat review results.

Types of WeChat Ads

WeChat has two main ad types:

  • Moments Ads
  • Official Account Ads

In addition, determining the most suitable ad type for your campaign depends on your goal. If you want to know which type is best for you, schedule a quick chat with us.

Ads on WeChat Moments

WeChat Moments Ads are native ads displayed on a user’s Moments feed with an ‘AD’ label in the upper right corner. Generally, this ad type is designed to build awareness or generate impressions.

It had a great start back when it was launched in early 2015. For instance, Coca Cola and Mercedes-Benz were the pioneers among 25 brands that participated in the first-ever testing campaign.

Presently, with the development of WeChat Moments Ads, brands can easily display their promotional campaigns without breaking a sweat.

Furthermore, WeChat Moments ads are equivalent to Facebook ads as it appears on the user’s timeline (or Moments on WeChat).

Moments Ads have two formats:

  • Regular Ads
  • Basic Card Ads

This ad type uses cost-per-impression (CPM) bidding and also runs on two creatives type – image (banner) or video.

Advertising on WeChat Official Accounts

On the other hand, ads intended for official accounts on WeChat appear as articles on the account itself. This method displays a banner photo with a call-to-action button and brand information.

Its goal is to generate clicks and leads with its strategic placements.

Ads for WeChat Official Account (OA) have two major formats:

  • In-article ads
  • Bottom ads

This advertising method uses cost-per-click (CPC) bidding and also comes in two formats – image (banner) or video.

To further demonstrate how WeChat ads work, here are some case studies you can refer to. Click the links below.
