A photo from our first-ever client event in 2004. We were hired by China’s most prestigious university, Tsinghua, to plan, stage and promote the 10th anniversary of China’s original tech incubator, the Tsinghua Science Park. THSP CEO Chen Hongbo is pictured at this event.

Allegravita is a PR expert, with more than 14 years of superb results in Chinese and international news and specialist media. 

Allegravita’s PR campaigns proactively and reactively manage the communications between the client organization and its audience, stakeholders, regulators, the media and the public. 

PR is an extremely effective communications tool for companies, government enterprises, institutions and individuals to tell their story and persuade audiences to see their point of view or to action.  

PR is especially valuable in the marketing of goods, services and ideas, empowering the client to amplify news. In cases of inaccuracies or misunderstandings, PR is a powerful method of correcting unhelpful sentiment. 

In cases where companies or enterprises have erred, PR provides an effective method of apologizing and rectifying matters.  

PR, particularly in China, is a powerful communications tool, and PR can be used for good or nefarious purposes. Choose your PR practitioner only after ascertaining their integrity, honesty and professionalism. 

Allegravita executes PR worldwide, and is a China specialist: The Chinese media represents both great risk and great opportunity. With deft strategic planning — made possible by deep understanding of the Chinese state-run media sector’s daily imperatives, long and strong relationships with hundreds of key media editors and senior journalists, and 360° grasp of the client’s objectives — Allegravita clients enjoy exceptionally positive and targeted media coverage through the China region. 

Allegravita also provides crash-course and full Chinese media training services, delivered with our proprietary curriculum, to help client spokespeople become effective communicators in the tricky China media landscape, and for Chinese founders and executives to communicate persuasively in international markets. 

Content Marketing, including startlingly effective and creative Chinese and international social media strategy and management.

An fun example of a very successful content marketing campaign which we invented and ran over the entire Year of the Monkey. After inventing loveable brand-value supporting mascot, we featured him in a wide range of online, print and experiential executions, including his own real comic book with monthly chapters over two half-year story arcs.

Social media provides a critically important channel to not only communicate with your audience and customers, but also a powerful lead-generation medium. 

Allegravita’s proprietary social media business development methodology generates tens of thousands of validated leads for our clients every year. 

From campaign ideation through to launch, promotion and management, Allegravita has mastered the science of lead-gen and brand awareness on diverse social media platforms in Chinese and international territories. 

Allegravita is skilled at inventing creative worlds of content, in which brand-value supporting stories and experiences which compel target audiences to love and share. Word of mouth (WOM) marketing provides outsized ROI in Chinese marketplaces, because Chinese cultures love to share.

Allegravita’s Content Marketing professionals encompass skilled native language copywriters, creative teams, graphic designers, illustrators, animators and experiential teams.

You have the brand, the product or the service. Leave the content to us and reap the sharply-elevated market awareness, lead gen, deal flow and sales performance that is the result of the Allegravita Methodology.

Digital Marketing and Communications including multilingual web strategies and site builds, online advertising, electronic direct marketing, search engine marketing and optimization in China and international markets, and custom game and app builds for WeChat.

Allegravita regularly helps our clients to achieve historic firsts. Pictured is the first-ever WeChat game for a domain registry, which we developed in-house for a key Japanese client, and integrated into a multi-platform sales and WOM promotion.

It goes without saying that online and digital communications are a key element in any strategic communications plan. 

Allegravita ideates and produces winning multilingual websites and microsites, electronic direct marketing (EDM) campaigns, sophisticated tracked online advertising campaigns, SEO and SEM campaigns, and custom software and database application programming. 

The Chinese internet is unlike any other. Consumers view the Chinese web as a place that they can feel freer and more empowered than in most other social situations. Sophisticated marketing and communications can be delivered to targeted audiences via online communities. 

Corporate Identity localization and brand development to communicate your value and benefits to Chinese markets, and for Chinese clients to motivate international investors, influencers and customers.

Allegravita has created hundreds of brand identities over 15 years. Pictured is one example of a great many, being a small selection of a portfolio of 23 brands we created for a London Stock Exchange listed client.

Allegravita’s accomplished corporate identity unit provides brand conceptualization, localization, execution and extension. 

A company’s corporate identity is their face in the marketplace. Corporate identities are the most powerful single element to set positive first impressions. 

Corporate identities — brandmarks, visual elements and boilerplate copy — which work well in Western countries can have dramatically negative effects in China, if not properly analyzed and localized where necessary. The vice versa is also true: Chinese brands rarely communicate and sell effectively in international markets without expert naming and brand localization support. 

Allegravita’s corporate identity work exemplifies a conceptually sound approach to visual communications. The hundreds of corporate identities we have created and localized for China and the world have helped our clients to more accurately position their products and services in the marketplace, reducing their communications effort and cost and giving a sense of pride to their employees, partners and stakeholders. 

Marketing and Communications Collateral to present your multilingual messages with excellent credibility.

A tiny window into our vast library of client collateral produced in-house since 2003: a global top-20 architecture firm’s scholarly book on the impact of architecture on educational outcomes, linguistically and culturally localized for Chinese professional audiences.

Beautiful and functional printed and digital marketing materials — media kits, brochures, white papers, books and booklets, exhibition materials, corporate stationery, gifts — are an effective tool to enhance your credibility (this is especially so in the China market, where printed collateral is a must-have). 

Allegravita maintains a full creative design studio, operating around the clock in our Beijing and New York City offices. The excellence of our multi-lingual copywriting and design has been proven for more than 14 years.  

Allegravita clients enjoy highly effective and persuasive marketing collateral, produced inexpensively and accurately in China, Hong Kong and other target markets, helping them to maximize their return on investment. 

Video production, including documentary, corporate, snackable, sharable and animated video assets.

Allegravita produces, in-house, several videos per week, 52 weeks of the year. A standout project was for a Canadian client who we placed in the legendary Shaolin Temple for a week of kungfu training, which resulted in a 45 minute documentary aired on national Chinese television.

Video production is a challenging marketing and communications discipline to master. When multicultural and multilingual campaign requirements are added, video can be daunting. 

Allegravita 100% in-house video production unit has created hundreds of exceptional video assets for clients in China and international markets over 14 years. From long-form documentaries which we have not only written, shot and edited but also achieved broadcast on major television networks, to corporate and training videos, animated explainers, and short “snackable” YouTube/Youku video and social media friendly sharable video, we provide the mastery necessary to translate your message and objectives to this powerful medium. 

Experiential Marketing to deliver compelling events and experiences in China and international markets.

Pictured is one quarter of the award-winning “best booth for a foreign exhibitor 2017” at Alibaba’s massive annual Alicloud conference (65K attendees over a week) for a highly-valued American tech client.

Staging and hosting events and experiences is a key element of a sound PR or strategic communications campaign. Allegravita is skilled at the conceptual design and execution of events that enhance our clients’ messages. 

Events range from intimate luncheons and mid-sized banquets through to multi-thousand attendee seminars and symposia. The key objective is that your audience’s experience is on-brand and leaves a lasting, positive impression.  In China, within distribution channels, experiential marketing arguably returns greater bang-for-buck than most other marketing investments. 

Market Intelligence research, reporting and analysis to support your strategic planning.

We’re proud of our market intelligence, experiential and PR work for Deutsche Bank’s RREEF which meaningfully supported a CNY2.9B (USD460M) asset sale.

Regardless of three decades of “reform and opening-up” policies, China remains a black box in all but a few industry sectors. As the Chinese government controls practically all statistics on the economy and consumer behavior, useful data is difficult to find, let alone rely upon. 

Before acting in China, Allegravita clients benefit from comprehensive market evaluations, which help to clarify exactly what parts of a commercial offering are attractive to what market segments, and why. Additionally, market intelligence guides the localization of our clients’ brands, ensuring that they’re as effective as possible in what is a very different marketplace mindset. 

Allegravita’s market intelligence unit also produces regular explainers, infographics, white papers and essays for general release. 

Never underestimate the importance and power of accurate and independent market intelligence.  Contact us to discuss your needs. 

Corporate Services to support your Chinese incorporations and regulatory compliance, and for our Chinese clients, efficient company formation, operational and HR solutions, and visa assistance.
