Wechat Mini-Programs Revolutionize KOL Sales Campaigns

April 27, 2018

This model proved extremely effective last 11.11 Singles Day when a total of 6 KOL-run stores made it into the Top-30 best-selling female fashion stores on Taobao.

Weibo KOLs created the majority of these brands and run the stores on Taobao. This is largely due to the partnership between Weibo and Alibaba, which allows integrating the two platforms for a seamless buying experience.
