WeChat Training and China Official Accounts

Most so-called WeChat training in Singapore are actually not really training but previews to sell WeChat Official Account consultancy programs.

As we know, many companies are crazy about entering the China market. Many people heard that to enter China market you need to use WeChat official account so that you can broadcast to the China market.

But we know that there are at least 1.2 million China official accounts and 99% of them are white elephants with few people reading and following them. This is because it is very easy to set up an official account but very difficult to maintain it like you to have updates in your official account.

But the consultancy fee for setting up China official accounts are quite lucrative, easily range from S$3,500 to S$9000. That explains why so many so-called 'WeChat trainers' are happy to conduct free WeChat training so that they can earn the fat fees from the China official accounts.

If you truly want to learn WeChat, then go for real WeChat training programs, like the ones run by Andy Ng of Asia Trainers. One program called "WeChat Get Rich" easily has more than 10 runs a month. Other related articles:

Majority of them are selling to you the consultancy package of opening a China Official Account, which can cost anything from S3,000 to S$5,000.  Others are selling you the idea of going into their related projects, which could be investments or subsequent advance training costing many hundreds or several thousand and even hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Top 10 Mistaken Beliefs About WeChat

Although WeChat has 1.1 billion daily active users worldwide, there are still many wrong beliefs about WeChat.  For example, many still think that WeChat is only used by Chinese and WeChat is just another China version of WhatsApp. My friend even has this thinking that WeChat is just a social tool and you cannot use WeChat for business.  The top 10 misunderstandings about WeChat are:
  1. WeChat is just another WhatsApp, China version, because WhatApp is banned in China. Truth: WeChat is not just a messaging tool, it is also a tool for daily transactions like transport, entertainment, news, cashless payment, social media like Facebook, music sharing, e-book and daily broadcast tool
  2. WeChat only supports Chinese language.  In fact WeChat now has 21 languages and you can easily translate another language into your phone's language using the translate tool inside
  3. WeChat does not support external links.  Reality: You can use any external links everywhere in WeChat except in groupchats and message broadcast
  4. WeChat is a very closed tool and you cannot see anything about anyone unless they have added you as a friend on WeChat.  Truth: You can see a stranger's 10 photos in their Moments posts.  You can always search for someone and send them a friend request
  5. Only Chinese use WeChat.  Truth: Just go to Little India in Singapore and you'll see many non-Chinese there using WeChat
  6. WeChat Pay is not useful because you only can use Chinese Yuan (CNY) in WeChat Pay.  Truth: 3 currencies are supported in their respective countries: South African Rand, Malaysian Ringgit and Chinese Yuan
  7. Unlike Facebook, most people don't read your newsfeeds (called Moments) in WeChat. Truth: WeChat Moments is part of everyday life of a WeChat user.  You can always select whose Moments you want to see in WeChat
  8. WeChat is just a tool combining the features of WhatsApp and Facebook.  Truth: WeChat has over 1 million features, most of them residing in WeChat's Mini Program, which is just a mini mobile app.  WHATEVER YOU CAN THINK OF, WECHAT HAS IT IN A MINI PROGRAM
  9. Companies don't use WeChat.  Truth: Almost a million companies have WeChat Official Account, which is a mini website used by companies to conduct their entire business there
  10. It is impossible to Advertise on WeChat, what's more doing business on WeChat.  Truth: WeChat Advertising starts from US$20,000 if you are not from China.  But you can easily do business on WeChat without advertising.  All you need is to use these 3 powerful tools on WeChat: Groupchats, Message Broadcast and Moments

12 Ways to Add China People as Your WeChat Friends

As we know, many people are very interested in the China market and that's why they learn WeChat.  In fact, for many people, the only reason to use WeChat is to sell to the people from China.

But we know that to sell to people from China, you need to add them as your WeChat friends first.  The reason is that China people only use WeChat and nothing else.  So even though you have a relative from China, you only can contact him via WeChat, not phone call, e-mail, Facebook or LinkedIn.  

There are 12 ways that anyone, while in Singapore, can easily add people from China as your friends:

1. Add the China people that are physically in Singapore as your friends. They will have contacts with people from China and you can get them to refer their China friends to you. The people from China that are in Singapore include the tourists, businesspeople, those on 30-days visa, work permit workers, employment pass holders, S and E Pass holders, citizens and their family members

2. Log into your QQ account and join groups that are made up of people from China.  From here you can add them as QQ friends and later convert them into WeChat friends

3. Attend seminars that are mostly attended by people from China. Like I attended Soheaven's Journey of Creation 2-days life transformation course in September 2017.  To-date, I have added at least 300 people from China from the 5 courses that I have attended that are related to Soheaven's course. There is another Soheaven course on July 14 and 15 (Sat & Sun), fee is S$299 for a 2-days course, details at here

4. Go to places in Singapore that have a high density of people from China, eg Marina Bay Sands, Resorts World at Sentosa, Chinatown, Geylang, Jurong Point, China restaurants.  You can easily make contacts with these people and add them as friends.  Most of them are very happy to have Singaporeans as their WeChat friends

5. Join classes conducted on WeChat.  Each WeChat Group has at least 400 to 500 people from China. You can easily add 10 to 20 people from each groupchat.  Imagine you join 10 such classes in a month, you would have added easily 1,200 China people in a month

6. Join Groupchats that have people that have connections with people from China

7. Join China people groupchats and you can add people from there

8. Follow Official Accounts that are set up by China people and you can easily add the owner of the Official Accounts as your WeChat friends

9. Search for Mini Programs that are set up by China people and you can add the owner of the mini programs as your Wechat friends

10. Just do a blind search on WeChat via 5 ways: mobile number (China mobile numbers and very systematic, all with 11 digits), People Nearby, common Chinese names (eg Chen Da Wen), common Chinese nicknames and articles

11. Simply ask people to introduce you to people from China

12. Open your heart. You'll realize that there are so many China people everywhere in Singapore. They are at your housing estates, food courts, shopping centres, and even your neighborhood!

If you too want to know the details of how to do any or all of the above, contact me.  I am happy to refer to you the sources. If you want to learn to use WeChat like a Pro and get business from China people, you can join our WeChat courses.  The special introductory fee is $99 a person or $199 for 3 or $59 each for 5 persons.  Related articles on WeChat (click on the title to read)
