KOL marketing has grown exponentially in the past few years in China. This is because Chinese consumers shift their attention away from traditional media and towards their cell phones. Becoming a KOL is a great way to grow your fame, influencers, and earn living or a lot of money without moving to a tier 1 city like Shanghai and get a 9 to 5 job.
As a result, millions of people from all across China have flocked to platforms such as Douyin, WeChat, and Weibo looking to grow a large following doing pretty anything you can imagine and even would never imagine.
