...and a strategic mindset

One of the guiding principles at CNNIC is that data is at the heart of everything we do. Create demonstrate this value through their campaign strategy. Audience insight is used to craft the content for the target audience’s preferences and distributed according to the target audience’s known behaviours. Campaigns are strategically monitored and optimised throughout their lifetime to ensure maximum impact.
