China’s online market is vast and growing at an insane rate – Chinese e-commerce sales are projected to triple from now to 2015 – which makes it a draw for all luxury brands. But it’s also so very different from western markets that it demands a whole new approach. That’s where the annual Digital IQ Index comes in, a detailed report by the L2 Think Tank that grades brands on their carefully crafted approach to social marketing and web presences for Chinese consumers.
Last year this Digital IQ report ranked three global companies as having “genius”-level marketing chops: Audi, Burberry, and BMW. This time around, four luxury brands get this accolade, led by cosmetics firm Estée Lauder.
