The original concept derived from the necessity for western business looking to bridge their brand with a Chinese speaking audience, using Chinese based digital platforms using native Chinese marketers.

Surfstr solves this problem with a dedicated team of Native bilingual English-Chinese marketers that understand the Chinese digital culture.

China's population is approaching 1.4 billion people, and the market is expanding at a rapid rate. There is significant potential for western business to expand their digital presence to this emerging market.
