Advertising in China is a Joke, it's either free or really cheap! But you need to understand why...

I would have thought it was the other way around in China. Thought lots of companies and limited space would make the advertising expensive and only affordable by the big companies. Prehaps its the lack of jobs making people take these kind of advertising jobs for almost free, and the value of advertising plummeting as result.
There were also cases, when we sent out products for review, we couldn't hear from them anymore. We usually check “Celebrity” CREDIBILITY from time to time before sending out, especially we are in totally different country, and can't even find a chance to meet in person. But you are too good to be FREE.
Nice vid very enlightening. I've a question open to all the office he visits seemed quite run down do chiniese people look down or think its bragging ? To vist a western owned office set up in China that cares for their building better as I've watched how matinence is not a strong point for China in general thanks 😁
Hi, serpentza; I haven't watched all of your videos of your walkabouts in China but, from those I have watched, they're awesome... you talks and coverage and descriptions are very informative. While I know that most of the growing cities in mainland China are experiencing a new life of business and economy; of products, clothing, shoes, electronics, etc. I would be very interested to know if there is a 'fashion' youth culture in China that is present and visible; like those in Korea and Japan - Kawai and Harajuku, or anything remotely close? Are there specific locations in the cities; any city, where kids and youth hang out that openly display this sort of alternative fashion style? And, have you done any vides covering this? Thanks
I think a big reason why they think that the westerners will happily comply with all their demands and do it for next to nothing except a free product, is because youtube is so saturated with young kids, up-and-coming tech channels and people wanting to review things for a free product. The tech review channels will happily comply with all demands most times. they aren't used to a foreigner living in china haha. great videos as always winston!
@4:20, isn't it weird running into strangers that look like less-attractive versions of wives or exes? I feel like it gives them a free pass for a little. And it's more DL lechery if anything because you usually feel vindicated by the supposition that they're slightly-off from your version. Go out for a burger, stay in for some steak kinda deal.
Anyway, you just need a mechanism to screen these things like agents do-- require a minimum service fee, come back at them with a list of basic requirements like a rider, establish a wall they have to climb in order to keep bothering you with their dumb ideas. Desperate people can just keep digging if you don't discourage them. Dangers of curiosity.
Winston: Could you make a type of film that would be seen by government officials, who might like it so much they give you some sort of special status, a special passport stamp, or something - you know, make yourself so famous that all the cops go, "Oh! He's that White African guy! We don't need to go terrify him and his family."
It is video's like these that show why the US is being so heavy handed towards China regarding increases in import taxes because China shows complete and utter contempt at protecting the brands of other (mainly western) companies and allows it's own businesses to make fakes.
Dude, the point is.. most of the products are Made in China so Chinese decide to copy what they want , you have a problem with brands that source their products from china and not necessarily the Chinese, get your mind at right spot ....
When in China ... or gtfo
Holy shit that office looks sketchy as hell. Half of it's a construction site, the rest has decorated is decorated with camping and garden furniture.
100% if I saw this type of place I'd think this is a pop up office!"
Our family of four here in Florida like seeing your reviews or inclusion of products. It is nice that you are conscious about overdoing the product thing.
Stay True to your vision for your channels. This video is enjoyable and the rolling case is actually impressive.
After having done a little traveling, and having to shovel the camera and laptops around at the airport, that bag looks pretty neat! My biggest worry would be moisture getting in, really. Looking forward to the review!
Hey man reviews are good aswell, we get to see some eastern gadget you get paid, im okay with reviews and sponsored products as long as you tell people it's sponsored i think they will be okay with that aswell. But hey take the reviews that can net you some money.
I enjoyed this. Your points about the lack of sophisticated advertising in China are interesting. I think it ties into the general lack of creativity that you've cited before. It's obvious that Chinese people are incredibly hardworking and increasingly well educated. I hope they can learn to embrace new ideas. Personally I think that will require more openness to 'foreigners' and more acceptance of personal expression.
chinese....copy,copy,copy!!! western countries dont sell land or assets to chinese! dont let them in en masse as students or otherwise,etc,china is about as superpower as toilet paper without the wests complicity
We normally see Chinese products as cheap and low quality where in fact there are so many good high quality products and innovations made in china that we are unaware of. Unfortunately the good stuff are on the shadow of a big over-saturated cloud of garbage. I believe that videos like this could help the regular consumer to find out what's good out there.
20.58 That's quite unique. The billboard behind the girl was write "火锅“ which is steamboat, but the shop behind is billboard is actually a clothing shop, quite weird. I think they have massive money to rent a shop and decorate like a big brand, but they still do not have the technique to run the shop and they using the street marketing technique to run the shop.
Just like computer, you got wonderful hardware, but you don't have to software to run it.
Says a lot about the power of celebrity endorsements when just a few minutes on one of Winston's videos led a guy like me to spend time reading through a Chinese suitcase manufacturer's website. The actual "customer reviews" section on their website for this particular product reads more like an endorsement for Winston's channel than the product itself. It's funny most of the reviews gave the product five stars yet none of the reviewers seem to have actually purchased/used the product.
I have to say, Sam and his team look like good people. I like the presentation of his product. His English is very good, and he didn't bore with technical stuff, he just got down to the cool new things he did with his product. Glad you plugged it, seems like they deserve some props.
