Episode Notes

In this episode, we’re thrilled to welcome Jacob Cooke to the show. As the CEO of WPIC Marketing + Technologies, Jacob is the perfect guest to discuss what’s going on in Asia right now, and how brands can take advantage of the growth opportunities. 

In this conversation, we dive deep into the current state of China’s consumers, and what Jacob is seeing from his vantage point as we are in the midst of the 11/11 Singles’ Day shopping festival. We also discuss Douyin’s evolution as a platform for commerce, how it compares to other Chinese platforms like Tmall, evolutions in the Japanese online ecosystems, and so much more!
