In 2005, a group of senior executives from international 4A agencies followed their dreams to create a Chinese owned international marketing communications company - WE Marketing Group. The agency quickly grew from 10 to 300 employees and is honoured annually by the industry as a leading force in China.
Our name WE has double meaning. First it means "us", a group of people with the same passion, working side-by- side with clients as one team. It also means "West meets East", combining western marketing discipline with eastern insights.
WE’s mission: Help international brands localise and local brands globalise.
Disruption is everywhere but the power of brand remains. WE marketing believes in using creativity and non obvious thinking to bring fresh insights and solutions to build brand and customer value.

As we move from an era of digital transformation to an era of AI transformation, WE Marketing Group will make four fundamental changes:
Revenue Model – the shift of agency revenue base from retainer fees based to more project fee based remuneration affected steady income flow for long term talent investment. All time based models are not scalable. We are testing new revenue model that generates steady income stream, including share of client’s revenue.
Service Model – increasing emphasis will be put on how we can increase the value of the client’s business, not just communication results. Evolving our social media service to social commerce, involvement in developing the client’s product/service development, and lead management has shown encouraging results in 2017.
Organisation Structure – increase spending on “thinking staff” that is the core to creativity and insights, and reduce spending on “working staff” that can be replaced by AI and robotics.
Mindset – Encourage open thinking that embrace collaboration, shared resources, creative technology, analytical science with sixth sense thinking, respect for local culture and new business models.
