The luxury buyers in Secoo are interested in virtual and real objects. Most of the upscale luxury buyers love to purchase luxury clothes and shoes. On the other hand, entry-level buyers begin from premium beauty products.

If brands in China want to reach a high level of sales, then they must develop essential social media marketing strategies. For instance, WeChat, the most popular social app of Tencent, launched mini program and moment ads, where brands can heavily promote products and services through different advertising types. With effective social media marketing to precise targeted audiences, luxury brands could expand their business in a fast and reliable way, without spending more time and budget as they did in the traditional advertising approach.

Secoo also revealed that the online luxury buyers have a keen interest in categories like photography, shopping, personal care, makeup and more. Shoppers always want to stay on trend, hence the companies can benefit from offering only the most trending and in-demand products and services that can match to their particular needs.

By Nicole’s introduction, brands also acquired insights of high-end consumers’ needs and wants. For example, high-end consumers in China are interested in entertainment category like explanatory and exotic events about entertainment and food. They also love to watch or read emotional things that can relieve them of the pressure and daily stress.

Every customer has specific needs. It is therefore advisable for brands to offer products and services that will meet the needs and requirements of potential customers. With the fierce competition in the industry, companies must not be discouraged with competitors. Instead, brands can make this competition as a source of motivation to improve services further by establishing more innovative social media marketing with the help of Secoo in China to attract more targeted audience.

By using creativity and knowledge in the best way, luxury brands can achieve the goals, visions, and missions through better understanding of their consumers. Even more important, brands can also establish a good reputation in the industry and gain the trust of many consumers. Overall, social media marketing can be the best tool.
