Social media is fundamentally transforming the relationship between brands and consumers, and as a result, how we market and communicate with consumers in China. While Chinese and multinational companies alike are beginning to embrace its power of persuasion, there remains questions on how to tie social media strategy and execution to business objectives. Is Social Media merely a marketing tool or should it be a driver for organizational change?
This practical half day session will lead off with an overview of the unique and sophisticated landscape of Chinese social media, followed by world class China case studies and examples showing innovative brands leveraging and learning from social media for more strategic and impactful communications. This will include a presentation from Nike’s Action Sports Director, Nicolas Zurstrassen. Mr. Owyang will then demonstrate how successful global brands are gaining competitive advantage by fully leveraging this opportunity through alignment of internal roles, processes, policies and stakeholders. Following Mr. Owyang's presentation, the panelists will discuss, along with input from the audience, how to best apply these applications to the China market.
