Notes:

  • How a Small Business Can Leverage Wechat for a Chinese Business Kick Start
  • Intro Matt and China Channel
  • Early beginnings of China Channel
  • Where are we with WeChat now in summer 2016 in  terms of numbers?
  • So let’s talk to the listeners today who are outside of China. They have an SME, maybe doing a few hundred thousand dollars a year in sales in their home country. Can they do business in the Chinese market? Some say get bigger first – you think they have a chance to do something here at this stage?
  • WeChat is making life for businesses and people much easier – so what can some of these overseas businesses do?
  • But for an overseas business, an official account can’t reach local Chinese right? What should they do? Should they even bother with an official account?
  • Is it all about official accounts, or can they leverage personal accounts, groups, and other elements of Wechat?
  • How about your own WeChat channel? How is it going? How did you get yours up to the level it is ? How to build up that important initial following?
  • Ways to stand out from the crowd,  as there is so much noise today in WeChat
  • How to reach out? Best ways to get in touch
