LIGHTSPEED’S WECHAT PANEL HITS MILESTONE, CONNECTING BRANDS WITH CONSUMERS DIRECTLY THROUGH CHINA’S MORE POPULAR SOCIAL PLATFORM

In the first six months, the program reaches more than 100K consumers

HONG KONG (29 January 2019) – Lightspeed’s WeChat panel now consists of more than 100,000 registered members in China, providing clients access to a new, robust community. Through WeChat, China’s most popular social messaging, media and mobile payment app, Lightspeed offers access to a highly engaged, representative mobile audience, including key influential respondents such as students and a broader spread across cities. This respondent base is pre-profiled to enable simple audience targeting for all brands.

“As the Chinese New Year celebrations begin, Lightspeed is excited to share another exciting moment – hitting the 100,000 respondents mark,” commented Jeff Tsui, Lightspeed’s Managing Director, Greater China. “We are breaking ground with our WeChat panel. From a quicker field time due to responsiveness right down to the activities these consumers are willing to participate in, getting richer data from real people through their favoured platform.”
