Content of a extra proactive shopper
Although the content "paid for" tracked by OpenBook's Beijing analysis employees is a big market area on the Chinese market, this was evident from the presentation at the Quantum convention in London earlier this month.
Zhao Zizhong from the Chinese College of Communications stated that one in every of the most necessary elements in the improvement of the market for this material is that it responds to the altering dynamics of the country's extremely digital shopper base. Among these elements:
- Change in distribution channels, tv, radio and traditional online communications to what Zhao defines as "data sharing platforms", akin to Himalaya FM, a streaming audio content material platform with 35 million paying users. 19659007] Shifting from well-known authors of film and tv planters to opinion leaders who construct their popularity on-line: one instance is Lou Zhenyu, whose lectures are directed by almost 1.6 million followers in Weibo and about 12 million subscribers in WeChat
- A deep penetration into the Chinese cellular cost tradition, similar to Alipay, WeChat Pay, and other methods that make content material quicker and easier than before
- Distinctive switcher in a clientele that can be recognized as a typical viewers extra proactive
For instance of what paid content material might be, Zhao used the Quantum viewers itself at the Olympia London conference middle , noting that the content material of the day's shows and conversations may be linked to the sales product and provided to those who participated and people who have been unable to pay for the content
”At the moment, Zhao stated:“ China's paid info business chain has shaped a relatively complete upstream and downstream production chain. for medium incubators and service suppliers, as well as for end-to-end info sharing platforms and customers.
”The knowledge sharing platforms paid by China range in form and are capable of attain a variety of distribution and / or info trade channels. Regardless of certain operational overlaps, these platforms might be broadly categorized into four varieties:

- Social (typically pushed by drivers)
- Software-based (Skilled, Skilled, utilized by companies and technically)
“For publishers,” Zhao stated: “China's information market is a gold mine without potential potential. On the other hand, this is a market of 1.2 billion potential consumers; On the other hand, global capital is promising and crashing. At present, the size of China's paid content users continues to grow from 48 million in 2015 to 292 million in 2018. Market size is expected to grow from 4.91 billion in 2017 to 23.51 billion in 2020. ”

" In some instances, worldwide partnerships exist, he stated, specifically mentioning one Penguin between Random Home and Himalaya FM.
