China Social Media Management

China is the world’s biggest social media market, but with no Western platforms available it can seem incomprehensible. Chinese gamers spend huge amounts of their non-gaming time on these networks and platforms consuming information on games, esports and streamers. The Game Marketer can help you tap into this market, set up official accounts on the major platforms and create relevant content to engage a new audience of players in China. We offer full China community management to allow for deeper engagement with players as well as connecting with KOL’s. Finally, we combine this with our deep understanding of paid social in China to ensure brand visibility and a constant stream of new interest.

Approvals, Documents & Licences

Despite increasing economic growth China remains a very regulated market with many layers of approval and processes to deal with. All marketing must be approved for use in the country and even basic social media accounts require official documentation and approval. The Games Marketer can help you navigate the red tape, provide clear communication, and help with all approval processes to get your brand China ready. We can also provide support and advice around site speed, entity, and business licences.
