AllChinaTech in February launched a video storytelling project and online campaign to bring awareness of the rise of Chinese startups in the hottest tech sectors, including the sharing economy, artificial intelligence, and smart devices. The project includes in-depth feature stories, as well as insightful video interviews of the startup founders’ passions and the motivations that drove them to set up their business.
Based on outreach data collected on the campaign from AllChinaTech’s social media accounts, thousands of people from Asia, the United States and Europe were reached through Facebook and Twitter. The most successful videos and articles were driven by retweets and shares by readers.
Individuals that shared our content on social media include casual readers and professionals in the global tech industry. These people range from entry level employees to management level staff from tech companies, as well as tech journalists.
AllChinaTech’s Facebook promotion video of our campaign featured startup founders, including those of Talkingdata, Onehome, and Juesheng. As of Feb 10, 2017, the post garnered about 52,000 likes or shares, and total impressions reached more than 150,000 readers.
