How long does it take to complete a strategy?
There are two options:
- A mini strategy takes 6-8 weeks to complete.
- More comprehensive strategies are delivered in 8-12 weeks.
We’ll give you a customized plan focussing on the goals you want to achieve in China with the expected timeline.
What’s the price for a strategy project?
No two strategies are the same and each one is based on each brand, company or product’s unique selling points and goals so the price varies. Mini strategies start at 18,000 USD while a detailed comprehensive strategy can cost 50,000 USD or more. To get a more accurate estimation, please send us a message.

Our team uses a variety of methods to make sure that the consumer profiles and journeys are correctly identified. This includes:
- Expert interviews
- Consumer interviews (in-depth, in person)
- Focus groups
- Online and offline surveys
- Secondary research
- and more
Then we use sentiment analysis and interpretive approaches to convert the data into actionable insights.
What’s included in the strategy package?
Each strategy is different but it will typically include an overview of the industry, consumer surveys, consumer profiles, a detail of the consumer journey and the best platforms, a competitors analysis, strategy development and a personal consultation with an account manager.
China is changing so fast, how can I make sure that your plan will still be relevant after a few months?
For all strategies developed by our team, we provide a 6-month guarantee. If something changes, we’re happy to revise it and make the needed adjustments to make sure that it’s an actionable plan. In order to support your team along the way, we’re also happy to answer any questions that come up.
