Feature Article: How Effective is Your Media Strategy in China?

We examine the media landscape in China, including digital and more traditional channels, and we look at common misconceptions when marketing your university in China, as well as providing tips for how to improve your institution’s visibility in Chinese media. This article will help you to determine:

  • Why you should be promoting your university in Chinese language, with very few students and families conducting study abroad in English
  • What Chinese-language content is currently available to the Chinese public
  • What is your media strategy? And what can you do better to promote your brand in China?
  • How effectively are you spending your marketing budget to meet recruitment targets?
  • How visible are you on Chinese education portals, blogs, search engines and social media?
