Content Creation

Fresh, innovative and high value

Today’s Chinese audiences devour new content at a furious pace to match their busy and aspirational lifestyles. We can help you meet the constant demand for fresh, innovative and high value content to meet their ever-increasing needs.


China’s fast evolving internet environment means forever devising newer ways to communicate with your target audience. We can work independently, or in collaboration with your existing creative team, to make it simple to create high value, China-focused content which will engage your audience and help you really stand out.

We don't translate, we localise

Simple translation into Chinese is not enough to communicate your product or service effectively in China. We help businesses to think and feel like the Chinese do, in order to really connect and bond with their target market, and offer a truly nuanced, culturally appropriate approach.

Social Media

The key business tool

The importance of social media in China is unparalleled in any other market. Platforms such as We Chat have incredible reach, are hugely influential and should be at the heart of every company’s communication strategy. At Octoba, we make Chinese social media work for you.

Brand Building

Chinese people like to talk. They want to talk to you. They also want to talk to your competitors. They especially want to talk to each other; sometimes about you. Chinese social media plays a crucial role in brand advocacy and recommendation. At Octoba, we help you to manage the conversation.

We manage your whole social media profile

We provide account creation on all major social media platforms, account design, branding, and maintenance including regular updates. We track audience engagement and undertake conversation monitoring. Octoba’s management services will prove an invaluable tool for any business aiming to fully harness the potential of Chinese social media.
