Providing Digital Marketing and Public Relations Solutions for UK Brands in China

Digital marketing is evolving in China. We are in the social “ME”dia (or “We Media”) era, which means that brands must be prepared to compete in a market built on personal experiences, rather than in the traditional mass media marketplace. As part of our extensive social media marketing and PR consultancy services, DDUK specialises in making an impact on real-time communication digital platforms in China via collaborative creation and user-generated content. Get in touch today to learn more.

Why you need digital marketing

In 2018, there were around 674 million social media users in China, making the country one of the world’s biggest social media markets. Even though platforms like Facebook, YouTube and Twitter are unavailable in the country, local platforms such as Tencent WeChat and Weibo are dominating the market with millions of users. Chinese social media is not simply an online communication channel, but the main information sources for news and entertainment, spending advice, and even e-payments. DDUK has extensive experience of using “WE Media” in China to achieve marketing objectives, including:

  • Weibo
  • WeChat
  • Baidu
  • Little Red Book (XiaoHungShu)
  • TouYin
  • Yizhibo Livestream
  • KuaiShou
  • Xigua

Tourism & Hospitality

By 2030, it is estimated that China will make up nearly a quarter of all global tourism. In particular, there has been a rapid upwards trend of Chinese inbound tourists to the UK. This is especially noticeable with younger travellers, with 46% of Chinese visitors to the UK aged between 16 and 34. Additionally, VisitBritain projects that Chinese spending in the UK will grow to £1 billion annually by 2020.


An increasing number of Chinese tourists are relying on information, comments, and suggestions from China’s emerging social media when planning for their trips. DDUK specialises in complete digital marketing strategies and solutions for the hospitality and tourism sectors.

Property Development

Chinese buyers’ interests in the UK property has reached a record high, particularly after the government announced an additional 2% stamp duty surcharge on foreign investment, which will come into effect in April 2021. With so many redevelopment and rejuvenation projects going on across the UK, there are tremendous property investment opportunities available to overseas buyers.


in his book “Mall City: Hong Kong’s Dreamworlds of Consumption”, Dutch architect Professor Stefan Al wrote: “Hong Kong is a city of malls.” Supported by a dedicated team who have worked with two-thirds of the property developers listed in the Hong Kong stock exchanges, DDUK offers a wealth of exposure to potential buyers in Hong Kong and China through an array of multimedia marketing services. 


While Hong Kong has the largest concentration of shopping arcades in the world, UK property developers have continued to invest in traditional brick and mortar locations too, prompting a surge in retail spaces opening in the last few years. Appealing to customers’ leisure experience needs, UK shopping centres will continue to attract locals and tourists and DDUK is ideally placed to promote new retail developments and entice shoppers offline through experience-led marketing campaigns.

 ENQUIRIES

If you have any residential or retail properties for which you are seeking investment from overseas buyers and tenants, please contact us for a free consultation and proposal.

Education

China is also the world’s leading source of international students to UK university degree and master programmes. According to the statistics from UK Council for International Student Affairs in 2018/2019, the majority of international students of UK universities coming from non-EU countries come from China, representing 35% of all non-EU students are from China. The trend will continue to grow upwards amid a series of recent changes to the Home Office’s Immigration Rules. Specifically, the foreign students for the 2020/21 intake of students to UK universities will be eligible for a new route to find a job in the UK after graduating for two years post-graduation.


We understand the challenges faced by UK universities and independent schools in international recruitment amid COVID-19. Complementing with the strong network with the Chinese students unions registered with The Chinese Students and Scholars Association (CSSA), DDUK offers bespoke marketing solutions to create synergy with your in-house team and representing agents in China, from arranging 1-to-1 virtual orientation session, China’s international schools and parents lobbying.


The UK is one of the top three overseas study destinations for Chinese students. Many Chinese parents would opt for a British-style international secondary education in the country for better preparing their children to study abroad. More than 300,000 children in China are now enrolled in an international style of education and 66% of these children are Chinese nationals attending international Chinese-owned private schools.


Therefore, a growing number of reputable British schools have plans to expand into China by tapping the huge market potential of the Greater Bay Area. Experienced in the UK education sector, DDUK have worked with a wide range of clients, from Oxford University Press to Lady Eleanor Holles (LEH). Our projects include the ground-breaking ceremony of LEH’s first overseas school in Foshan, China in 2018 and EtonX’s debut online summer programme in 2019.


Addressing the high demand for quality education in Hong Kong and Greater China, we have accumulated a strong track record in providing services to institutions. As experts in managing the affairs of international schools, we offer strategic counsel, media relations, and event management services. We also host private dialogues and roundtables with the local community to help bridge the culture and language gaps.



 ENQUIRIES

DDUK can help your universities to embark on marketing campaigns to promote to the Chinese audience in Hong Kong and China. If your school has any new program and initiative you would like to promote on our WeChat platform “英國麻瓜在 UK”, please get in touch and we will arrange for our editorial team to contact you shortly.

Cross-Border eCommerce

There is enormous business potential to be found in China’s OTC (Over-the-Counter) pharmaceuticals market. As of December 30th 2019, the China National Medical Products Administration has approved a pilot programme for the bonded importing of OTC pharmaceutical products in Beijing, enabling foreign merchants to store products in the Tianzhu bonded warehouse area and fulfil customer orders.


With the growing awareness of health issues in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, the market demand for OTC non-prescription drugs in China is increasing. As the first UK partner of Zenecom360, one of five e-commerce companies that the government has granted the Green Channel Permit for OTC non-prescription drugs, DDUK can help you connect with this market.

Working with healthcare and clinically proven cosmetic skincare brands in the UK, we collaborate with Zenecom360 to deliver premium qualifying products directly to China, ready to sold online complementary with the seamless offline product display at over 10,000 strategic locations including more than 3,800 stores of DaShenLin Pharmaceutical Group Co., one of the five largest public listed companies engaged in the pharmaceutical retailing business in China.

Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature. If you do not wish to receive them, you have the option to cancel your services with us.

Protection of DDUK and Others: We may release account and other personal information when we are required to do so by law, court order, subpoena or other government or law enforcement authority or regulatory agency, including ICANN, in order to enforce or apply our Services Agreement or other agreements, or when we believe in good faith that disclosing this information is necessary or advisable, including for example, to protect the rights, property, or safety of DDUK, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for fraud protection, credit risk reduction or other similar purposes. Sites Other Than DDUK, DDUK has no control over and is not responsible for the privacy policies or information gathering practices of other websites, including those to which we may link and those which may link to us. We strongly recommend that you review the privacy policies of every online service you use before submitting any personal information and direct any concerns to the site administrator of that website.

How Long We Keep Your Personal Data.
We keep information only for as long as we need it to provide you services, manage our business or as required by law or contract. Where you have a contract with us, we will retain your data for the length of the contract, and will further retain that information for a time period consistent with our legal or regulatory responsibilities, after you terminate all your services with us to resolve disputes, enforce our relevant Service Agreement, and to adhere to the technical and legal requirements and constraints related to the security, integrity and operation of the Sites. If you have any questions about how long we will keep your specific data, please contact us.

How We Keep Your Personal Data Safe.
We work to protect the security of your financial information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer ("SSL") software, which encrypts the information you input on the Site. However, no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is completely secure and we cannot guarantee its absolute security. You can further help to ensure your security by taking a few simple precautions. For instance, it is important to protect against unauthorised access to your computer, and to be sure to sign off when you are finished using a shared computer.

Limitation Of Liability
DDUK assumes no responsibility or liability with regard to any theft, loss, alteration or misuse of personal or other information lawfully provided by DDUK to third parties, or with regard to the failure of any third party to abide by this privacy policy or such third party.
