Source: | Author:Amie | Published time: 2023-07-31 | 895 Views | Share:

As August approaches, let's take a mindful approach to celebrate cultural festivities and connect with Chinese consumers. However, it's essential to be aware of the advertising risks that come with marketing during this time. Let's explore simple marketing strategies for four key festivals in August: Army Day, Alibaba Member's Day, Chinese Valentine's Day (Qixi Festival), and Ghost Festival.

Army Day (August 1, Tuesday):

 China commemorates Army Day, honoring the founding of the People's Liberation Army in 1927. As marketers, let's show appreciation for our armed forces without solely focusing on promotions and sales. By spotlighting stories of courage and sacrifice, we can deepen brand loyalty and evoke a sense of national pride.


Alibaba Member's Day (August 8, Tuesday):

 Alibaba Member's Day is a much-anticipated occasion for Alibaba's loyal customer base. As marketers, let's offer exclusive experiences and personalized rewards thoughtfully. Creating a sense of community and providing value-driven content can leave a lasting impression, encouraging positive word-of-mouth referrals.


Chinese Valentine's Day (Qixi Festival - August 22, Tuesday):

Qixi Festival, known as Chinese Valentine's Day, is a cherished celebration of love and romance. Instead of solely pursuing commercial gains, let's focus on crafting genuine and touching campaigns. By evoking emotions and sharing love stories, we can create unforgettable experiences for couples.


Ghost Festival (August 30, Wednesday):

The Ghost Festival is a day to honor ancestors and departed loved ones. For marketers, it's crucial to approach this occasion with sensitivity and cultural awareness. Let's avoid pushing sales and profits and instead encourage acts of compassion. Supporting charitable causes and showing empathy can build a reputation for social responsibility.

By being mindful of the advertising risks, we can build stronger connections with our audience and mitigate potential challenges during August's festivals.
