WeChat 101: a marketer's guide to the super-app

A 101 guide to the super-app's marketing capabilities

USD 49

WeChat is a platform unlike any other in China, or indeed the world and is much more than simply an app. The super-app can be used to hail cabs, order food and goods, book dentist appointments, communicate with friends, play games, pay credit card bills and much more. It can be no surprise that the app is a must when engaging with the Chinese consumer.
