Why Do I Need Marketing in China?
China is currently one of the most exciting music markets in the world. With the country continuing to see the same double-digit growth in the recorded music sector as it has over the past several years, the explosion in popularity of electronic music and an array of other genres has led to an influx of touring artists, as well as those looking to make more money from their music and merchandise.
However, China’s legal restrictions, language barrier, and unique online culture make it a difficult place to operate, in addition to the country’s social media and music platforms that are not available elsewhere. Marketing in China requires care and experience, and a strategy distinct from what works in the rest of the world and the rest of Asia.
