Using SICE brands can acquire, aggregate, analyse and adapt their social media marketing campaigns to ensure they more accurately and precisely target consumers throughout the customer lifecycle.
Becty Yan, Deputy General Manager, UMS China, said, “It’s no longer enough for brands just to have a presence on social media. Marketers need to be actively engaging with their audience and ensuring these communications are optimised for the users’ behaviours.
“We have launched SICE to help our clients to ensure their social media marketing strategy continues to deliver strong return on investment. SICE enables us to help our clients to adapt and evolve campaigns and strategies in real time, while also providing insights into how to maintain ongoing conversations with audiences.”
Jessica Miao, Chief Executive Officer, UMS, said, “SICE helps to provide our clients with a comprehensive view of the WeChat ecosystem for the first time. This WeChat data, combined with Tencent’s big data, and a brand’s existing insights and CRM will help us create targeted end to end communications that will deliver on KPIs and drive revenues.”
