Communication is key to approaching any market, but developing a communication strategy specifically for China is often overlooked by many European SMEs. The communication environment in China differs greatly from Europe in terms of language and media. The internet functions almost like an intranet cut from the rest of the world, resulting in a completely different social media ecosystem. This webinar will focus on how to adapt your strategy to communicate more efficiently with the local market. We will discuss differences and introduce simple concepts for adapting a global strategy to China.

Join this webinar to get an overview of:

– The communication environment in China;

– The importance of brand and story localization;

– How to approach media relations and build a social media presence.
