DAVE provides a one-stop solution for WeChat Advertising:

1. WeChat Official

WeChat Official Accounts for brands undergo a stringent application process subject to approval by Tencent. As their official partner in Canada, we can help:

  • Identify and set up the right type of WeChat official account that suits your business goals;
  • Facilitate the documents required in the application.

2. Account Management

Management of this account can be challenging as it is in Simplified Chinese. We can:

  • Configure the account setting like welcome message, auto reply and custom menu setup
  • Create content that is relevant to your Chinese target audience

3. Mini Program

WeChat allows for additional functionality within official accounts. We can develop “apps within WeChat” according to the client’s specific needs such as:

  • e-shops
  • food delivery
  • ticket sales
  • travel booking
  • games
  • tools, and more.
