Digital Marketing Agency in China

The 5 W's of online marketing in China are different. You ready? - China’s Internet world is booming, as you may have heard a million times. Along with the increasing number of Chinese Internet users, there is a rapidly-growing black hole of needs for exciting and useful products and services, which means an enormous potential for profits for foreign companies.

However, entering the Chinese Internet market is not as easy as it sounds. China's Internet market is like a parallel universe with their own search engines and social media sites. Barriers and obstacles can be seen everywhere, such as language, culture, government policies and most importantly, Internet users that usually think and act differently than the ones you already know well.

That’s why you need to work with native Chinese online marketing experts.

Our Digital Marketing Services

Baidu SEO

Today’s Baidu is more than a search engine. Like Google, its counterpart from the US, Baidu has evolved into a broad Internet ecosystem with a wide array of services and products, including organic search and pay-per-click advertising.

Baidu PPC Management

If you have used Google Adwords, then Baidu PPC should be nothing new to you. Generally speaking, they work the same way – you bid on keywords you are interested in and pay Baidu when your ads are clicked.

Social Media

SEO Shifu helps you with every aspect of your Chinese social media marketing campaigns. From planning to implementation, we take care of them all. In short, we help you bring your brand from there to here.

Chinese SEO Shifu provides Chinese content solutions including Chinese copywriting, website localization and brand name translation.

Weibo is one of the most popular social media platforms in China, working similarly with Twitter but going beyond what Twitter does.

Client Testimonials

Yaniv Marcus, VP, Asia-Pacific & Investments, Leibish & Co.

"Thank you for all the help and support you have been giving Leibish & Co. We had given you a challenging mandate, which involved translation of an English commerce website into Mandarin, along with a mandate to increase our visibility in China via online marketing, as well as increase social media exposure and followers. You have done a fantastic job up to now, and I have no doubt that this will continue for the foreseeable future."

Sonia Saund, Project Coordinator, Fourth Dimension Inc.

"I must say that working with Chinese SEO Shifu was a great experience overall. Shifu made sure that every request I had was completed on time and within budget, and they provided status updates on the project as it went on. I was very impressed with the level of communication that SEO Shifu offered, especially since we were collaborating from opposite ends of the world. Ryan was very professional, understanding and diligent when it came to the work contracted. I would definitely recommend SEO Shifu to anyone looking for Search Engine Optimization and/or translation services."

Lewis Youngson, Managing Director, Visit Football

"Ryan and his team at SEO Shifu have been instrumental in helping my business grow in China. As a UK based travel company we have been able to communicate easily and quickly with Ryan, despite the time difference with China, regarding translation and SEO projects. Our business has been praised by many for its great translation and since starting our SEO 3 months ago we have risen to the top 3 in Baidu organic search terms. Ryan is someone I have complete faith and trust in and I can highly recommend him to any business big or small that wants to target China."

Phi Vo, Online Marketing Director at StudyMode, Inc.:

“We are an international company with many sites in different languages, and it was difficult to find anyone with as much expertise as Ryan. Specifically, we needed to grow Baidu traffic quickly. Ryan helped us to chart a short and long term strategy for SEO that would work well in the Chinese market, and thus far we have seen great results. I would definitely recommend his expertise for websites or businesses looking for someone on the ground who knows how SEO and great sites should work in China. We’ve seen a tremendous growth in traffic and look forward to a long-term relationship with this company.”

Helen Zhao, Director of Marketing, UL Prospector

"We struggled in finding a SEO/SEM consultant specialized in Baidu in the US. Luckily we found Ryan, who is located in China and speaks very good English. Ryan is knowledgeable, countable and easy to communicate with."

Joelin Liu, Marketing Director, Microsoft

"I hold Ryan in very high personal and professional regard – his ability to jump in, figure it out, and accomplish the goal in a timely basis is unparalleled. I had the pleasure of working with Ryan for about 12 months on an SEO project for Microsoft China and Ryan and his team members really impressed me with their understanding of search engines and knowledge on search marketing."

Ben Van Exan, Graphic Communications, WhiteWater West Industries

"WhiteWater West Industries contracted Shifu in December 2013 to boost organic SEO and manage our PPC account for our Chinese website. Within the first 3 months, the organic search results have more than tripled our total visitors, with ongoing improvements..."

Paul Coffey, Kung Fu English

"Ryan's team at Chinese SEO Shifu is our definition of an ideal partner. They are willing to spend time clearly explaining their suggested methods. They can be flexible on project terms if circumstances change. They are proactive in their communication and always looking to protect their clients' interest. Just about any SEO "expert" can claim to know everything, and then deliver very little. Ryan and his team will outline what is reasonable to expect .. and then deliver even more."
