JJGLE.COM: Instead of the large-scale furniture store in Shanghai, such as Red Star Macalline, Ink + Ivy chose to land at Joy City shopping mall. What do you take into consideration?

 

INK+IVY: For the young generation of consumers, they do not just choose household products that they can buy and consider during the decoration period. On the contrary, especially some small furniture such as tableware, jewelry and textiles often changes for the seasons, fashionable trend, festival and family development just as the fashionable dress. And Shanghai Joy City, as a comprehensive shopping mall, has more young consumers who are more likely to accept the new consumption concept. Therefore, Joy City is more suitable for a new generation of household brands, such as INK+IVY.

JJGLE.COM: Except for activities about fashion and lifestyle, what kind of market promotion activities will you organize or participate in? How to make Chinese consumers know the brand?

 

INK+IVY: The daily life of current consumers, especially the young generation consumers, is characterized by a wider scope, discontinuity and internet. It requires the brand can follow consumers to change its media and contents while promoting itself. INK+IVY will not carry out promotion just with the traditional media. Except for the operation of new media, INK+IVY also strengthens the linkage of We-Media of the brand and online and offline linkage to enter the life of consumers.
