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.
