Setting up your WeChat account

The unique aspect to WeChat is the combination of both instant messenging and the ability for users to share and post within their contacts and followers just like a Facebook NewsFeed.

This unique feature is a crucial development for any business looking to market to China. Businesses are able to create a dedicated corporate account on WeChat and users can follow them and take note of any blog posts that is published

I've seen I can open a WeChat account for free on the WeChat website in English

Yes you can, however you can only open an international account.

There are over 700 million active users on WeChat - 630 million of these users are registered Chinese users (ie... they registered using a Chinese mobile number), if you open an international WeChat account none of these users can access your account. If you are targeting Chinese consumers, which is the main reason you are opening a WeChat account then it is defeating the purpose ofopening A WeChat account

The solution - An official WeChat account

So that all 700 million active registered users are able to gain access to your company's WeChat account, you need an offical WeChat account. To get an offical WeChat account you will need China registration details, either from a company incorpoarted in China or using an Chinese citizen electrol details - only those born in China will have this. If you DO NOT have a China registered company or have a Chinese registered identity, it is almost impossible to set up an official account

Great Wall Marketing are able to offer your business an official WeChat account by using our China registered details. Please see more information on our services for WeChat.

Managing your account

Once your account is set up, Great Wall Marketing is able to manage your account on your behalf or you are quiet happy to manage it yourself (though we recommend it would be better if you could read Chinese as all the admin section for your account is all in Chinese).
