Best World’s Digital Marketing in China – Updated 2021

Since developing our digital marketing strategy in 2016, our strategic focus has been creating user engagement and promoting brand loyalty through content sharing.

This involves active generation of informational content through our official accounts to engage and generate interest among like-minded consumers . The goal is to build a community of followers and users, who will share the content, their product reviews and experiences online. For a more detailed explanation, please refer to our 2019 article here.

As part of this effort, we launched our first WeChat content in March 2017. This article serves as an update to the overall progress we have made and results achieved in the last few years.

Following the launch of our WeChat and Weibo official accounts, we subsequently launched DR’s Secret official accounts in RED in mid-2018 and WeChat Channels in 2021 to reach different consumer profiles. While the official WeChat platform continues to bring general beauty and wellness education through long-form articles, RED and WeChat Channels focus on brand and product-centric information in short notes, reviews and short videos to cater to potential customers and current users looking for specific brand information.

In 2020, our China subsidiary launched a WeChat official local account – 全美世界, focusing on local community outreach, culture, events and activities. We also renamed our WeChat official account to BWL全美世界国际, repositioning this account for global outreach and distributing content relatable to Mandarin-speaking consumers across the globe.

Distributes contents of beauty and wellness education, product information, reviews & tips mainly in article format, catered to the global Chinese-speaking audience
