About Us

At Quickeast, we all come to work everyday to solve the biggest problem for businesses entering China. Connecting with your audience.

Don’t worry, we can help.

Why?

Because it’s the foundation of your business. Because if you don't have relationships with your audience it will be near impossible to get customers and build your business in China. And because there are literally hundreds of millions of people in China that want good stuff. Real products and services. And if they trust your brand, they will use your stuff.

For many foreign businesses this is one of the biggest market opportunity in the world. But it is also the most challenging.

How we got here

We are a team of people from all over the place. Asia, North America, Africa. We are diverse. We respect diverse cultures and people, it’s at our core. While we embrace technology and process, we know that people run the technology and processes. We bring this people-first mindset to our business, to our customer relationships and to yours when building products and managing your social presence.

Before starting Quickeast our founding team owned, operated and sold China-based businesses in:

  • Advertising
  • Construction
  • Consumer Goods
  • Digital Media
  • Education
  • Fashion
  • F&B

It didn’t matter what industry we were in. Connecting with our audience was of paramount importance across the board.

When Sean and Vincent (our American Co-founders) started their first China business in 2011, just as WeChat was launching, it was hard for a couple of non-Chinese to build real customer relationships in the middle of China.

Where we are.

People are still people, but people in China really do think about things differently. For us and many other foreign brands, forging meaningful and lasting relationships was less intuitive and more, well, foreign. This is true for customer relationships, personal relationships, and professional relationships. It’s true when talking face-to-face and when talking on WeChat, Weibo, Miaopai or Yinke (FYI these are some top Chinese social media apps).

What we do

Through these experiences we learned that reaching your China audience is challenging yet attainable. You don’t need to go through the same struggle that we did. Not when we can help. We’ve built products, technology and a team to make connecting to your community more effective and cost efficient than ever before.

Don’t miss the train.

We exist to erase those challenges so you can better reach your audience and business goals.
