On September 5th we had another successful business meetup talking about China’s eCommerce and online consumer behavior at LOHAUS’s 1st floor event area.
More than 50 people attended the event hosted by the Shanghai Forum, an economic and business discussion group that talks about a new macroeconomic topic every month.
The Shanghai Forum organizer, Jason Inch, started by introducing some macro-statistics about China’s Internet, eCommerce, and mobile markets from his upcoming book, China’s Demographic Supertrends, part of the China Supertrends series.
Then our special guest, T.R. Harrington, an expert in eCommerce and search engine marketing in and outside China and founder of Darwin Marketing, discussed with attendees in an interactive Q&A format his thoughts about China’s eCommerce and mobile development, as well as SEO and SEM strategies. Some of the interesting things discussed included:
- The importance of an Alibaba-Sina Weibo linkup
- Why the Baidu-PPS.tv aquisition is needed for Baidu
- How Alibaba is an overlooked channel in search strategy
- The keys to a successful mobile strategy in China
