This could be anything from a mobile search (someone looking for "pizza near me" on their phone) to a local service search (someone looking for a dentist or a plumber in their area) to someone shopping for a gift ("Mother's Day flowers") or a high-end item like enterprise software. All of these searches trigger pay-per-click ads.

    How to attract Chinese customers

    How to attract Chinese customers

    As mentioned in the previous section, Australian companies will need to be aware of consumer trends and behaviour, and respond accordingly. This means focusing more on digital marketing and advertising, rather than traditional methods such as television and print media.

    One example will be the need for Australian companies to optimise websites for Baidu (China’s largest search engine) to increase visibility and attain better search engine rankings.

    They need to increase their brand presence and reach through mobile by using social media apps like WeChat, mobile video platforms and other popular Mobile social media in the Chinese market.

    Digital marketing channels are in a dramatic state of flux, and that is perfectly mirrored in China. For this reason, Australian brand marketers need to move much faster in response to market trends and current affairs.

    On-demand, real-time campaign assessment and review is essential for the Chinese market, where data analytics is key to unlocking customer value and campaign direction. Drafting a 12-month plan and not reviewing it for a year simply won’t work. You need quarterly or even monthly strategic reviews just to keep pace.
