With a client list that reads like a lineup of Grammy performers — Eminem, Tiësto, Pearl Jam, Ice Cube, Robin Thicke, Maroon 5 — Fame House has become a central hub for entertainers and event promoters looking to interact with fans on a smart digital level. By controlling branding, social marketing, website development, online advertising and e-commerce for its clients, Fame House has reached more than one billion people collectively. (The festival tickets and Mario Kart tournaments just make the job even more fun.)
With over 600MM MAUs, WeChat is one of the largest messaging apps in the world, falling just behind WhatsApp’s 900MM and Facebook Messenger’s 700MM users. The app goes way beyond messaging, though, offering features as diverse as instant messaging, banking, and the ability to order taxis and buy movie tickets through their “app within an app” model.
While the core of its user base lives in China and other Asian countries, the company has taken major steps to expand internationally in recent months. Fame House’s Digital Strategy Manager, Matt Chylak, takes a deeper look into the unique aspects of the platform and where it fits into the global messaging apps market with our Platform Overview: WeChat.
