What is Baidu?

Baidu PPC advertising | Market Me China®

Baidu is the Chinese equivalent of Google and China’s leading search engine. It is built entirely around the customer – and their experience, satisfaction and value. For Western brands seeking to market online in China, there are fantastic features to leverage – including web, image and video search, Zhidao Q&A, the Baike Wiki and news feed ads. Market Me China can guide you through every feature and optimise PPC setup for your campaign. We work with you to understand your unique needs and goals, and then deliver a programme that achieves them.

Baidu PPC Account Setup

The good news is both Chinese and overseas advertisers are allowed to open a Baidu PPC account. Although Baidu PPC is similar to Google Adwords, setting up your Baidu PPC account is not as easy as with Google Adwords! The entire process takes around 4 weeks and is carried out in Chinese. (Please note, usually, advertisers do not need a .cn domain, or a Chinese ICP licence.) To simplify the process, we manage it for many of our international clients.

Steps to Set Up a Baidu PPC Account

  1. Initial website check
    Baidu has strict administrative regulations – so we ensure that you are fully compliant. For example, your registered company name must be the same as on the website or documented on an About Us or similar page.
  2. Submit the required documents
    Baidu requires a significant set of documents to authorise a new Western account. Working on your behalf, we ensure that all documentation is correct and ready, to facilitate the process.
  3. Make a payment
    Baidu requires an initial payment to set up a PPC account, which can then be used for your campaigns. An annual fee might be charged depending on regions. We can handle the initial required payment so that campaigns can begin to be run.
  4. Receive login details
    Once the advertising fee reaches your Baidu account which will be owned by you, we make sure you successfully receive your login details and / or manage it entirely on your behalf.

Please note: the final result is subject to Baidu.
