You might know about the big confrontation that occured in Hongkong on March 8, 2015. This conflict between the Chinese mainland consumers and the Hongkong residents is leading to the topic of “smuggled goods purchase” phenomenon. Individuals, even against the easy policy of “tourism visa permit” for mainland consumers shopping in Hongkong. A massive demonstration triggered on February 8, 2015 and has escalated to other group collisions twice. Unfortunately, plenty of innocent victims, particularly for normal Chinese visitors, even a few Hongkong local consumers, were verbally abused in this incident.

The big difference should

"Brand = Culture”, this title might confuse everyone a little as it’s really difficult to make strong relation. But we have discovered that more and more successful brands were born with this invisible feature. Since the last article, we went through some more facts about the Double 11 campaign and observed that a good brand can tell us a story reflecting its value. Although it sounds like an amazing idea on the branding market, it’s not so easy to put it into practice. Compared to the traditional “hard push” advertising on how to make others share brand value, this has turned into a big challenge.

We are frequently questioned by foreign brands, Is it really good enough to join Double 11 even Tmall platform for foreign brands?Well, good question. Before we answer this que
