Netizen Natives offer a powerful combination of sector and digital expertise, generating transcreated content, verified social media accounts and WeChat microsites

WE ARE NOT LIKE OTHER AGENCIES

BUILDING YOUR COMMUNITY


Our proposition is unique. There are millions of users in China, yet the common practice for reaching the right audience is based on views, not engagement. Netizen Natives are taking a fresh approach. We focus on and will be measured by your successful outcomes – we’re talking students enrolled at your institution as a result of our work.

Based in media hub Changsha, our local office gives us a strong lead in market immersion.
