My New Zealand- partner pack updated Sept 2016

  1. 1. My New Zealand Building bridges - and brands - across cultures.
  2. 2. Hi! I’m Simon Young For 5 years, my company syENGAGE has been helping western brands do marketing in China. The struggle is real. It's hard for western brands to remain authentic and unique, AND be relevant to their Chinese audience. In that time, here's what I've found.
  3. 3. There are two ways a kiwi brand can "do" China... 1. Work with agencies and consultancies to develop a long-term strategy, brand positioning, marketing channels, learn Chinese.. Etc.. Etc… Image source: Image source: 2. Work with a KOL (Key Opinion Leader) with an existing engaged audience, who can tell your brand story in a fresh, unique and relevant way!
  4. 4. That’s why... We've created My New Zealand, a video series on some of China's most popular online channels. It's the first such video series in Chinese, for Chinese, by a local kiwi.
  5. 5. How “My New Zealand” can tell YOUR story in China ● Enable your brand to tell your authentic New Zealand story ● Provide a unique, fun and approachable content vehicle for your brand to reach your Chinese audience ● Bridge the culture gap between your New Zealand brand and its Chinese consumers - boosting shareability and likeability
  6. 6. What you get and where it goes ● Bi-weekly videos ● Daily content: ○ Images ○ Articles ○ Voice messages ● Channels ○ WeChat (China's Number 1 social media app) 12,000+ highly engaged fans ○ Weibo ("Chinese Twitter") 7000 + highly engaged fans Plus: Other growing popular mobile video platforms Weibo (322m users) Wechat (700m users)

  8. 8. An Effective Growth Platform Traditional TV is declining.

It will be primarily viewed on social networks WeChat and Weibo, and supported by other popular platforms such as: ● YouKu ("China's YouTube") ● Weibo ("China's Twitter") ● Miaopai ("China's Vine") ● Bilibili (A new video sharing app) 50% of video is watched online. Mobile online video growing fast! OTV=Online TV
  9. 9. Who we're talking to Beijing Seeking: new opportunities, new ideas, self-improvement Age: 25-35 Mostly female Across China and the world, but primarily in... Young (some by age, some by nature) Shanghai Guangzhou Real! These are real people who give feedback and comments - no zombies!
  10. 10. What we're saying For five years, Simon has been on Chinese social media fielding questions from Chinese people. The first season aims to answer some of those frequently asked questions, focusing in on short questions with long (and entertaining) answers. For example… "What is New Zealand cuisine?"
