Social Media/Digital Marketing
Due to the Chinese government effectively blocking all the major Western social sites (Facebook, Twitter,...), it is imperative to build your social media presence through the main Chinese social media sites. This now involves real ID verification as well Chinese language communication. Supported by a fully-bilingual Chinese staff, we've built active social media profiles for MusicDish*China, reaching nearly 7,500 followers, as well as our artists on:
- microblog/weibo sites: Sohu, Sina, QQ,..
- music/blog sites: Douban, IndieVox, AliveNotDead,...
- video sites: Tudou, Youku, Ku6,...
We regularly conduct social media promotions and contests in partnership with portals such as Mogo, Sohu and Ku6 as well as event promoters.

We've also worked with other major festivals such as Jue (2012), JZ Shanghai (2011-2012), INTRO (2010),... These partnerships are reinforced by collaborating with event promoters such as Trash A GoGo and UndergroundHK.
