Strategies for Social Media and PR in Asia

More than ever, tapping into the semiconductor and solar markets in China, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, and Southeast Asia regions is critical to your company’s bottom line. Typical public relations (PR) approaches and principles that are successful in the Americas and Europe often do not work well in Asia, due to the demographic, cultural, and linguistic variation.

Particularly in China, social networking is a distinct and enigmatic proposition for many western brands. Due to internet censorship and state restrictions that impact traditional social platforms, the market is dominated by domestic, Chinese social media outlets that have been developed under very different conditions.

Successful execution of PR and social media programs in Asia takes a special set of skills. Join Ina Chu, director of Kiterocket’s Asia practice, to learn best practices for successful engagement with Asia’s press and on China’s social media outlets.
