Why China?

China has become a nation of powerful consumers. While much is reported of the super-rich, the most exciting opportunity for international brands lies firmly with the purchasing power of the booming middle classes.

Gone are the days when only a handful of showy luxury brands held appeal. Today’s Chinese consumer is more sophisticated than ever with an appetite for a wide spectrum of brands that suit his or her lifestyle.

China’s middle class is affluent, urban and increasingly cosmopolitan. With leading European brands making up to 30% of all sales to Chinese consumers both domestically and abroad, China is an immediate opportunity which cannot be ignored.

Hot Pot?

Hot pot is the social dish of China. It’s an occasion when friends come together to talk about their lives, their hopes and their desires.

Into this spicy bowl of boiling broth is thrown meat, vegetables, mushroom, tofu, noodles. Once cooked, each person fishes out the things they like best and which appeal to their tastes.

For us, hot pot is a great metaphor for today’s digital world. From a gigantic mass of choices, we all pick out the people, brands and information we like, and which suit and support our lifestyles.

Any successful social needs a great host to make things run smoothly. We’re called Hot Pot Digital because we live out this role. We know our clients’ brands inside out, just as we know the likes, hopes and aspirations of their future consumers. We kick start exciting conversations to bring brands to the attention of the right people. Millions of the right people.

When it comes to China – we make sure your brand is at the table.

We’re Hot Pot Digital.
