still holding a half cover, which is so far, WeChat electricity supplier gave me the impression.
double eleven appearance, twelve upgrade, by Ali created two electricity supplier Festival, WeChat finally carrying Tencent in the PC era unfinished dreams, into the mobile providers in the Deepwater area. Ambition, Tencent is.
, from WeChat electricity supplier for the ambiguous attitude, I believe that, in addition to the Tencent have ambitions, and for mobile providers confused and tangled. How does social flow into the flow of electricity supplier? This problem, QQ is not resolved, QQ was raised in WeChat, also puzzled.
asked the circle around the small partner, a lot of people on the WeChat electricity supplier is still very strange, so scan the status quo first.
first look at two pictures.
the two pictures are taken from the Tencent business website, Tencent business strategic layout and business lines clear, from the physical, life services, virtual products, digital content, Tencent in the electricity supplier, is really not so simple or defensive play.
these branches, from the PC to the mobile terminal, a step into the WeChat, should be only a matter of time. Now, in addition to pat, QQ online shopping, and QQ music, the other branches are in WeChat home.
from the planning point of view, two of the most important, physical and life service, the former by Yi Xun led by mobile life department is mainly responsible for the latter, Twitter Life and micro shopping two team, show is the main form of merchants public number, in addition, Groupon also made a micro group purchase, new line the movie is by Gaopeng and mobile life together with the Ministry responsible for the electricity supplier.
What is the effect of
? So far there is little public information.
fast and easy data: double harvest mall eleven featured 80 thousand single, 200 thousand single by the end of November (do not know fast and easy to have it in November 28th 150 thousand units millet 3, if you count, the 200 thousand single is not like a lot). Twelve, Yi Xun said only as of 16, WeChat featured product orders accounted for more than the total amount of orders 10% fast.
service life, anyway, two-dimensional code everywhere, the number of public enterprises quickly become the standard, the scale is certainly very fierce. But personal observation, a lot of people will use banks, airlines, galleries and other institutions of the public number, but the general public number of merchants have sticky, really not many. I have seen a typical scenario is, to the merchant there, see there is a discount, it is concerned about the scan code, preferential start, or canceled, do not cancel is put, the opening rate is not high.
electricity supplier module hidden deep
why do I say WeChat electricity supplier still hold the pipa half cover it, because the entire electricity supplier module, in fact, hidden in WeChat is relatively deep!
