WeChat

 

WeChat is a key part of everyday life in China, with almost every user (78% of the 1.15 billion mobile users in China) accessing WeChat at least 10 times a day. It’s a complex online ecosystem combining text message, group chat, video/audio call, as well as news, articles, music and image sharing. It’s also an emerging payment tool.

On WeChat, we post articles that are aligned with Destination Canada’s five content themes, including transformative travel experiences. One of our focuses is to promote lesser-known destinations.

Get involved:

  • Engage with fan conversations by leaving comments at the end of each article or responding to questions in the comment section under our posts.
  • “WOW” (similar to ‘like’) the posts you like so that your followers/friends on WeChat can see the post you just liked.
  • Re-post the article to your friend’s circle to get content amplification.

Weibo

 

 

Weibo is a comprehensive Chinese microblogging website combining photos, short videos, news, articles, text, live streaming and live sharing with images. It’s seen as the Chinese version of Twitter. Users typically have a high educational background and are from tier one, two and three cities.

Since Weibo is similar to Twitter and Instagram, we showcase inspiring photos and videos from across Canada. We re-post content from partners as well as user generated content from Chinese travellers and execute mini social media campaigns.

Get involved:

  • Engage with fans conversations on our wall by uploading your photos and responding to questions in the comment section under our posts.

Keep Exploring Websites

 

Our Keep Exploring websites are an amazing source of information for prospective travellers to Canada, and also a fantastic tool for driving leads to partner websites. We have an always-on approach to these websites, meaning that we strive to add or update content regularly to ensure it’s meaningful to travellers.

Get involved:

  • Our websites are not “listings” sites, but instead focus on editorial and storytelling. Most of our website content comes from provincial and territorial marketing organizations or specifically commissioned pieces.
  • Content is often syndicated and localized on our various market sites.
    • Therefore, the best way for you to be featured on our website is to work with your provincial marketing organization.
  • If you’re featured in the content they provide us for syndication, there’s a good chance you’ll end up on our website.
  • If you see any errors on our websites that require correction, please email info@destinationcanada.com.
