Digital Advertising in China

Through paid advertising, brands can reach a very broad target audience and get more traffic and leads. China has a unique digital landscape which provides numerous offerings for brands to place their ads. These channels include both search engines and digital media platforms.

SEARCH ENGINE ADVERTISING

Baidu is China’s most popular search engine. Similar to Google, there’s also a map search engine – Baidu Maps. It has a 67% market share and 174 million daily active users.

According to some reports, Sogou, backed by Tencent, has about 3.3% of the market. It classifies its results into categories such as music, pictures, video clips, news, maps and topical information.

Some reports put Qihoo’s market share at around 30%. Since it started as an anti-virus software company, it’s seen as a safe search engine that provides virus-free viewing.

WHAT DO PEOPLE SAY

FAQ

What should my monthly advertising budget be in China?

China is not a cheap market to advertise in. Depending on your product, audience, sales channels and the outcome you’re after, we advise you to start with a minimum of 5,000-10,000 USD per month.

Do you arrange search engine advertising?

Yes we can help you to advertise on Baidu, Sogou and Qihoo. For some businesses, search engine marketing is more crucial than for others. Before launching any advertising, you need to make sure that you’re investing your money in the right platform. It’s also important to know that before advertising on Baidu, you need to be in an industry that’s allowed to advertise on the platform and that your ad has been approved.

How do you guarantee a result?

We always deliver the results that we promise. This is why we set realistic expectations. For instance, we can commit to certain levels of exposure by platform and estimate the number of clicks. If we’re lagging, we can boost them with an ad round. We can’t promise how many products will actually be bought. We track performance on a daily basis and adjust budget allocation accordingly to make sure that campaigns perform at their best.
