China Digital Marketing Masterclass: Get Ready for 2021

Plan your 2021 marketing strategy for China by understanding the trends of modern Chinese consumers and act on China’s social media marketing insights.

About Course


In this module we’ll talk about emerging consumer groups in different generations in lower-tier cities and how Covid-19 has affected their shopping behavior and lifestyle. In contrast to first and second tier cities, consumers in lower-tier cities are more connected with each other and as a result rely more on peer reviews. As expected, 2021 will be a year of private communities and community retail. Brands can’t miss this chance to seed new products and get the most from word-of mouth marketing.

  • An overview of China’s digital lifestyle in the recovery stage
  • The modern Chinese consumer in 2020
  • China’s top 5 digital trends for 2021


We’ll invite special guests from one of China’s tech giants to speak about changes and trends on e-commerce platforms. You’ll get a chance to ask your own questions.


During this module you’ll learn about the latest functions and regulations on most popular Chinese platforms and how to adjust your marketing activities to get the most from organic traffic and paid promotions.
