I’ve spent many hours scrolling through Chinese social media posts over the past few years, but it has never been more frustrating than now.
There is no way to get followers in China.
You can’t really follow your favorite celebrities, and you can’t even post your own content.
As a result, it’s a lonely, lonely life.
And that’s where my friend, writer and social media expert Ching Ching Cheng, comes in.
She’s got a plan.
Ching has been writing about China for over a decade.
Before she left China for California, she spent a year working in Beijing as an independent PR consultant for a major Chinese media company.
The job was a godsend for her and her family.
But the company never gave them access to any real information or contacts outside of China, and it was impossible to contact anyone inside China who could help with any problems.
“The job paid me well, but the work was hard, and the money was really, really good,” she said.
After leaving China, she started looking for a way to make money.
“There was this one company that was offering me a job, but I wanted to do it in China first,” she explained.
So she started writing her own articles about Chinese culture and culture in general.
It wasn’t easy, but she made enough money to support herself for a while.
“I’ve worked at least five years in China, so I’ve had a lot of experience, and I’m just a very lucky person,” she added.
“If I hadn’t been so lucky, I would have probably stayed in China for a long time.”
In 2017, she moved to Seattle and started writing about Chinese history and culture for the local Seattle Weekly.
After about three months, she noticed that some of the posts she had been making about China were disappearing.
“So I started looking around for posts that I could upload to YouTube and Twitter,” she told me.
“And that was the beginning of my journey.”
Since then, she’s been writing articles about China, history, culture and other topics on a daily basis.
She has a large following on Twitter and a dedicated Instagram account where she posts short videos about China.
“You’ll notice that the people I follow tend to be very, very positive and positive about China and China’s culture,” she continued.
“When I start posting, I get a lot more followers and that is definitely good.”
The people she follows tend to follow people she’s already known and liked.
That means that she gets more traffic, and she gets a bigger audience.
This, in turn, means she gets better reviews and more money.
But what’s really awesome about her business model is that she’s got her own followers on her own website.
“As soon as you get more followers, I’ll post more,” she assured me.
As I was talking to Ching, I asked her if she ever thought about starting a business in China?
“No, but then again, I never did,” she answered.
She started her own business, The Ching Family, in January 2017.
The goal was to help people in China learn about Chinese, and then to offer a range of products that were more affordable and more relevant to their lives.
She told me that the company has grown by 20% since the beginning.
“Our goal is to create an outlet for people to share their own culture, history and their own experiences in China,” she stated.
“We think that it’s very important for people in the world to have access to information and be able to communicate with each other, and this is something that’s not really possible with China right now.”
She believes that people in other countries can access China’s knowledge by using social media or through their own websites.
“But the Chinese are the only people that have access for everything.
And they don’t really have a way of sharing their own history or their own cultures,” she noted.
“That’s why we think it’s so important for Chinese people to be able and willing to share everything, so that they can learn from each other.”
And while her website has grown over the years, the content hasn’t.
“People who know more about China will find more content on our website and see more of what we have to offer,” she emphasized.
“However, our goal is always to bring more Chinese content to the world.”
The Chings also recently started a Twitter account called The Chinge, which has over 6,000 followers.
This is the first time that she has put out a product that is designed to be accessible to a wider audience.
“A lot of people are interested in our products and we’re always interested in more products that are aimed at Chinese audiences,” she revealed.
“For example, we offer Chinese-language products like the book The Chinese Book of Living, which is a Chinese-style cookbook that’s been translated into English.
That’s one of the first
