  On November 26th, the 21st Guangzhou International Automobile Exhibition, which lasted for 10 days, came to an end. The number of visitors exceeded 800,000 for the first time, reaching 847,000, an increase of 11.4% compared with 760,000 in 2019. At the same time, the organizing committee announced that the next auto show will be held from November 15th to 24th, 2024.

  On the closing day, due to the weekend, the exhibition ushered in a peak passenger flow, and many consumers rushed to place orders. Near the end of the year, the effects of new car listing, favorable policies and promotion of car companies are gradually emerging, and the automobile circulation is more "alive" and the automobile consumption is more "prosperous", which promotes the development of the automobile industry in terms of quantity and quality and injects new vitality into the high-quality development of Guangdong.

  Upward quality Intelligentization drives the change of consumption concept

  Guangzhou Auto Show is the last large-scale auto show in China this year. Around the year-end closing battle, major manufacturers have tried their best to increase terminal promotion and stimulate consumers’ enthusiasm of "buying in buy buy".

  BYD booth, the audience jostled shoulder to shoulder. In the exhibition area on the first floor, many people got into the new car and learned more about the control details such as intelligent driving from the staff. In the negotiation area on the second floor, staff members can talk with interested consumers everywhere. "BYD just cut the price again, and now it can be shot." Zhang Yi, a prospective car owner from Shunde, Foshan, said.

  With the accelerated transformation of automobiles to intelligence and electrification, the "wide goods" represented by BYD are favored by consumers. The data shows that BYD’s sales of new energy vehicles reached 1.86 million in 2022, and it is expected to exceed 3 million this year.

  At the same time, in order to meet the consumer’s mentality of "buying a car to go home for the New Year", the official selling prices announced by many first-time models are lower than market expectations, even lower than the previous generation models. For example, the delivery price of Polar Star 4 released during the Guangzhou Auto Show dropped by about 50,000 yuan compared with the price displayed at the Shanghai Auto Show in April.

  "The popularity of new energy vehicle booths is significantly higher than that of fuel vehicles, and the rise of domestic brands has triggered a change in consumption concepts." Zhou Fatao, secretary-general of Guangdong New Energy Automobile Industry Association, noticed during the exhibition that with the continuous improvement of domestic brands’ manufacturing power and strong competitiveness in vehicle design, core technology and service, the price-performance ratio of products has been steadily improved, and even differentiated competition has been formed with luxury cars. "But low price is not synonymous with low quality. The development of new energy automobile industry has been gradually scaled up, and the cost of bicycles is constantly decreasing, which has further opened up enterprises ‘ Price war ’ The space. "

  The technological advantages of new energy vehicles are being transformed into real money orders. The pre-sale of Zhijie S7 was opened for 4 days, and it was set to exceed 10,000 units; Haobo HT36 hours orders exceeded 10,000, and the cumulative orders exceeded 30,000 units … … During the auto show, major car companies released "transcripts" one after another, showing great enthusiasm of consumers. 

  Policy assistance Car sales are expected to hit a new high.

  As a mass consumption, automobile consumption is an important starting point for stabilizing the economy and promoting consumption at present.

  Just a few days ago, the general office of the provincial government issued "Several Measures to Further Boost and Expand Consumption in Guangdong Province", and put forward a number of measures to further promote automobile consumption. For example, Guangzhou and Shenzhen further relaxed the application qualification for car purchase indicators, and this year Guangzhou increased the quota of 50,000 unplanned energy-saving fuel vehicles.

  The introduction of a series of measures has further released the consumption potential. "Taking advantage of Guangzhou’s increase in energy-saving fuel vehicle indicators, I plan to buy a hybrid car, and I don’t have to worry about queuing for charging on the expressway when I return home." Mr. Liu from Jiujiang, Jiangxi Province went straight to GAC Toyota, and his "Heart Water" model was a hybrid version of Toyota Lei Ling.

  During the auto show, Feng Xingya, general manager of Guangzhou Automobile Group, said that the new energy vehicle market continued to grow this year. Among them, compared with pure electric vehicles, energy-saving vehicles such as extended range and plug-in have a faster growth rate. Facing the emerging market demand, GAC has long been laid out, and energy-saving and new energy vehicles are gradually becoming a new growth point of GAC Group’s business. In the first half of the year, the penetration rate of new energy vehicles reached 20.3%, and the total penetration rate of energy-saving and new energy vehicles was 38.7%, up by 16.4 and 24.6 percentage points respectively compared with 2020.

  The rise of energy-saving and new energy automobile industry is a microcosm of the high-quality development of Guangdong automobile industry. Driven by various consumption promotion policies, automobile marketing activities and a large number of new models, Guangdong’s automobile industry has shown a pattern of booming production and sales. According to the statistics of Guangdong Automobile Industry Association, this year is 1-mdash; In September, the production and sales of automobiles in the province were 3,558,100 and 3,504,300 respectively, up by 14.9% and 15.1% respectively.

  After years of continuous decline, car sales are expected to rebound and hit a new high this year. China automobile dealers association predicted that with the "Double Eleven" activities and the year-end sales of car companies and dealers in December, the domestic retail sales of passenger cars in 2023 is expected to be close to 22 million, achieving a 5% growth.

  Lin Jiang, a professor of economics at Lingnan College of Sun Yat-sen University, said that domestic brands seized opportunities such as intelligence and electrification in the changing situation, and let the outside world see the resilience and charm of Guangdong’s automobile industry. At the same time, good products, in turn, further promote automobile circulation and expand automobile consumption. The supply side and the demand side simultaneously exert their strength, influence each other and promote each other, which is of great significance for Guangdong to adhere to the manufacturing industry as the master and promote high-quality development.

Kaifeng Wang Po, or lost to "Ceng Liu" online celebrity.

 

Author | Guo Hongyun

The limelight has overwhelmed Tianshui Mala Tang in Gansu, and with Kaifeng, Henan "soaring" to become another city with a big traffic explosion, the stage plot has begun to move towards magic.Wang Po, who invited online celebrity to step down and sucked powder, finally lost to online celebrity.

 

The incident that made the "Wang Po Matchmaking" program start to become uncontrollable was that a married man, Liu, "ran for love" stepped on the stage for a blind date, and expressed his willingness to "quit his job in Zhengzhou and go to Sichuan" for the blind date female guest. After successfully adding it to the woman’s WeChat, it became a good conversation, and his wife who was far away from Japan saw it and went back to China in anger to prepare for a divorce.

 

This dramatic scene became a turning point in the stage of "Wang Po Matchmaking". No netizens paid attention to the humor of handsome guys and beautiful women and foster mother "Wang Po" on the blind date stage, but instead began to criticize and falsify "love rat", denouncing online celebrity’s unscrupulous behavior.

 

Just today (April 3), the topic of "police responding to Wang Po’s media saying that married male wife is suspected of suicide" once again rushed to the hot search of major social media platforms, and his wife Xiao Xue sent a video crying late at night: "Maybe I am too fragile, I really can’t hold back." Some netizens speculated that they might do something stupid and call the police. The staff of Yinchuan Public Security Bureau responded that the police had contacted Xiao Xue’s father and learned that Xiao Xue was fine after asking.

 

Among the voices urging Xiao Xue not to do anything wrong, some netizens questioned that she was speculating, and there was a script that wanted to be online celebrity from the moment when a married man went on a blind date.

 

And "Wang Po" himself had to stand up and respond publicly because of the storm of public opinion, once again emphasizing the initial intention of the stage, calling on "those who bring their own scripts not to join in the fun, and leave the opportunity to those who really want to make friends".

 

And her troubles are not limited to this. According to Tianyancha APP, "Kaifeng Wang Po" has been registered as a blind date marriage service company, and its business scope includes marriage introduction service and wedding etiquette service. In the eyes of the uninformed public, the actor himself is not satisfied with matchmaking only on the scenic stage, but wants to transform into a company and become a "matchmaker" completely.

 

 

This misunderstanding forced "Wang Po" to stand up and refute the rumor again. On April 2, she posted a video on her Tik Tok account @ Kaifeng Wang Po, saying that she didn’t and didn’t authorize anyone to start a matchmaking company. She also said that she had some physical and mental problems recently, especially her voice, so she needed to rest for a while and wanted to go out and have a look.

 

Prior to this, Long Live Mountain Martial Arts City has officially announced that Tomb-Sweeping Day can welcome tourists in a fuller state. Teacher Zhao, the actor of "Wang Po", will rest on April 2 and April 3, and the performance of "Wang Po Matchmaking" will be temporarily performed by another actor "Li Po". After "Wang Po" indicated that it would take a break for a while, the scenic spot announced again that Zhao Mei, one of the actors of "Wang Po", would take a month off from April 3, 2024 due to health reasons. During this period, other actors, such as Li Li, would perform "Wang Po Matchmaking" for tourists and add a related talent show.

 

 

This also means that "Wang Po" will be absent from the Qingming holiday activities in the Wuxia City of Longevity Mountain. According to the data from the US Mission, as of March 28th, the number of advance tickets in Kaifeng Scenic Area has increased by more than three times week-on-week, and many tourists have taken "blind date" in Kaifeng, Henan Province as their holiday play plan. This sudden change may disappoint tourists who want to go to Kaifeng to meet "Wang Po".

 

As for the program "Wang Po Matchmaking", even if "Wang Po" played by teacher Zhao Mei can return smoothly one month later, the popularity is still there, but it is still difficult to completely put an end to the online celebrity who have been rubbing traffic, and rumors about herself may still reappear.Fired by the flow, but trapped in the flow,For the 61-year-old actor teacher, without a strong heart and plenty of energy, it is hard to escape the next time after this time.

 

It has been reported that,"Wang Po" has considered resigning and retiring, and wants to live an ordinary life.

 

As a scenic spot, I definitely don’t want to lose such a "drainage" baby. In order to solve the problem of online celebrity’s traffic and the hype of non-singles, Longevity Mountain Martial Arts City has also re-adjusted the program rules and made new changes, such as implementing the offline advance reservation system, and dividing the scene into single male guest area, single female guest area and tourist viewing area. Male and female guests invited to interact on stage need to ensure that they are single and take photos in the dating declaration area.

 

Most importantly, for the sake of the order of the scene, online celebrity, who is not sincere in making friends, is required not to stay in the venue of "Wang Po Matchmaking", and the anchor with live broadcast equipment (such as microphones, speakers, stereos, banners, etc.) should be allowed to bypass the venue.

 

justIt is easy to make a request, but difficult to implement it.. The blind date stage, which has been regarded as "stale" by netizens, and the "Wang Po", which is exhausted both physically and mentally, make it uncertain whether this program can persist and whether it can continue to be popular.

 

In order to better undertake the first wave of predictable peak passenger flow, the scenic spot has made a lot of preparations in advance besides betting on "Wang Po". According to the relevant person in charge, the parade of Qingming Cultural Festival will be the most brilliant chapter of Long Live Mountain. In addition, there will be more than 10 Song Chao art interest spots in the park, including not only interactive experiences such as script killing of ten thousand people, blessing of the old moon, flying flowers and throwing pots, but also an interactive area for praying and an atmosphere festival with water lanterns.

 

 

However, it is undeniable that no matter how wonderful other programs are, the biggest expectation of tourists to visit the scenic spot must be to see "Wang Po" and meet the legendary foster mother. Without "Wang Po", it will undoubtedly be a pity.

 

To a certain extent, the scenic spot and even Kaifeng Wenlv don’t want "Wang Po" to really resign and retire, but Wenlv also mentioned it before.The traffic of NPCs in scenic spots is more intense, so it is risky and challenging to make the best use of it to drain themselves.

 

As far as the present situation is concerned, Longevity Mountain Martial Arts City has worked hard enough. Whether listening to netizens’ advice or understanding and protecting the actors themselves, it is doing its best. However, by the time of "Kaifeng Wang Po" IP fever, there has been a turning point in the downward trend, and there are not many official voices and actions. How to undertake the "splashing wealth" brought about by the hot topic of single-point out of the circle, Kaifeng Cultural Travel seems to be less rapid and active than Gansu Tianshui Cultural Travel.

 

The latest available news is that on March 29th, Kaifeng held a special conference on the work of cultural tourism in the whole city, sayingIt is necessary to take advantage of the situation, promote the formation of more outstanding boutique cultural tourism projects to attract more tourists to visit, and do everything possible to continue the good situation and make Kaifeng cultural tourism change from "bursting red" to "long red".

 

Before that, some netizens who had been to Kaifeng and recognized the experience of local culture and tourism projects were "anxious" online. Look at Luoyang, a neighbor who has made the marketing of Hanfu popular. Why don’t you use "Wang Po" to market in Kaifeng?

 

So is Kaifeng Wenlv slow to respond, or is there really no shortage of "Wang Po" traffic?

 

According to the ranking of tourists received by cities in Henan in the Spring Festival of 2024, according to the statistical data of "Hot Ranking of Eighteen Cities in Henan during the Spring Festival of 2024" published by Wenlv Sports Studio of Zhengzhou Newspaper Group with the technical support of Micro-hotspot Research Institute, Kaifeng entered the top three list after ranking Zhengzhou and Luoyang.

 

Specifically, during the Spring Festival holiday, the city’s cultural tourism in Kaifeng received a total of 9.335 million tourists, a year-on-year increase of 30.7%; The comprehensive income of cultural tourism was 6.47 billion yuan, an increase of 85.9% year-on-year; In the same period, Luoyang received a total of 11.1353 million tourists, with a total tourism revenue of 8.293 billion yuan, up by 87.51% and 156.88% respectively compared with 2023.

 

A glimpse of the whole leopard, for Kaifeng, which focuses on Song Wenhua and attaches importance to the development of cultural tourism,Traffic is very important, and a chance to get out of the circle is even more rare.Failure to promote the city’s tourism with the help of the popularity of "Kaifeng Wang Po" is a missed opportunity to market tourism resources and enhance the brand awareness of the city’s cultural tourism.

 

Let’s take Luoyang as an example. According to the data of Meituan, the search volume of "Hanfu" in Luoyang has been in the top three in China since March, and the search volume of "Flower Appreciation" has increased by 110% week-on-week. The upcoming Qingming holiday coincides with the Peony Festival, which makes Luoyang one of the top ten popular destinations in China. "Hanfu Flower Appreciation" has become the most distinctive feature label of Luoyang in tourism.

 

It is said that red depends on life, and the heat of breaking the wall once can’t be met. Although everyone is saying that the official marketing of Tianshui, Gansu Province is "too fierce", it is a bit too much for some netizens to grow "anti-bone" and not buy it.But after all, from the results, Tianshui, Gansu Province has achieved a circle in brand recognition of tourist cities. In the long run, the tourist season will only come in the summer in the northwest cities, and the "wealth" that Tianshui, Gansu Province will harvest ahead of schedule will inevitably double.

 

At a time when major cities are eager to get out of the circle with the help of hot spots, the question of new media communication and topic marketing needs the destination governments to work harder, study hard and dare to try, in order to give high scores.

Exclusive spoiler! What did Lectra 09 steal from Volvo?

How much blood relationship does Geely Link have with Volvo? This question has been a tacit question since Geely bought Volvo passenger cars. In recent years, Geely seems to emphasize the "kinship" with Volvo more and more in product announcement, such as the CMA platform and DriveE powertrain used by Xingrui (parameter picture), Xingyue L, Lectra 01 and other models.

But in the user’s mind, after all, it is still powershift, and it may be a bit far-fetched to say that Xingyue L is the replacement of XC60. And this Lingke 09 from SPA platform, which will be listed in the fourth quarter, can undoubtedly say with confidence: I am the shell replacement of XC90.

We don’t need to say much about the internal and external design, materials and intelligent configuration of the Lectra 09. Everyone can see these things. As the flagship of Lectra, Geely will never let us down in this respect. Today, we will focus on talking about what unique attributes Volvo SPA platform has given Link 09 in three major areas.

Volvo SPA Extensible Architecture Technology

Volvo SPA scalable architecture technology was first applied on XC90, and it was also from the new generation XC90(2015 model) that Volvo began to fully expand the diversified powertrain of Drive E series. In fact, the platform only gave birth to Volvo’s mid-to high-end SUVs, cars and station wagons, which laid the unique positioning of the brand flagship from the bloodline.

Drive E powertrain: inverted layout, compatible with exhaust gas turbine+mechanical pressurization.

Of course, the powertrain is the first to bear the brunt. In fact, this is not the first of the Lectra 09. The active Xingrui, Xingyue, Lectra 01, etc. are all "stealing" from Volvo in a large area, including this Drive E engine that originated from the SPA platform, but it has always been a T-series version.

48V light mixing system (BMW)

According to the official introduction, the 2.0T+8AT powertrain used in the fuel version of Lectra 09, like the new XC90 and XC60, adds a 48V light mixing system, which is a serious "B series" Drive E. The author has always insisted that the 48V light mixing based on the radial flux motor (BSG) motor is of little significance to fuel economy, but at least in hardware, the Lectra 09 is really a complete replica of the Volvo XC90.

In addition, the Lectra 09 continues to offer a 2.0T plug-in hybrid version, which also "steals" Volvo, and uses the Drive E series T8 power system with a high probability to provide power for the rear wheels through the P4 bridge. However, the official has not released the specific data for the time being, and it is not clear whether its front axle uses a 2.0T T6 engine (turbo+mechanical double pressurization).

The front/rear independent T8 system can only be mixed.

The 2.0T hybrid version of petrol-electric vehicle is a new gadget created by Lectra 09. Volvo T8 plug-in hybrid system can’t be "magic change" into a hybrid system of petrol-electric vehicle, because the P4 bridge is not in P2 layout, and the front/rear axle power systems do not interfere with each other, so it is impossible to achieve effective electromechanical coupling, which is essentially different from Toyota THS and BYD DM-I.

Aisin 8AT is not compatible with P2 oil-electricity hybrid.

In fact, the announcement for the hybrid version of Lectra 09 only emphasized the 2.0T engine, and kept silent about the Aisin 8AT transmission. The core reason is that the horizontal Aisin 8AT is not compatible with the P2 hybrid module at all. With the current technical reserve of Geely Volvo, it is impossible to build a planetary gear transmission with integrated motors in a short time. Personally, I guess that the hybrid version of Lectra 09 will probably use a 7-speed powershift with P2 layout.

The blade spring rear damping of XC90

Link 09 rear suspension

Finally, the chassis system, which is the most significant difference between SPA and CMA, is also the original creation of Volvo. XC90, S90 and Lectra 09, which originated from SPA platform, all use lightweight aluminum alloy lower swing arm, and are equipped with the combination of leaf spring and damping shock absorber. This thing has the function of a stabilizer bar, and it may be that Lectra 09 will also make a version of an air shock absorber.

● Summary:

As the flagship SUV of the Lectra brand, Geely Automobile really invested heavily in this Lectra 09, which not only inherited the original power chassis system of XC90, but also introduced a more compatible hybrid version of oil and electricity from more innovative. These are the core technologies that are not available in Xingrui and Xingyue of CMA platform.

From the user’s point of view, the Lectra 09 is a medium and large SUV with 6 seats /7 seats, and its price is likely to be controlled at around 300,000, regardless of the hard power of the three pieces or the static experience of the product. Isn’t this thing better than Toyota Highlander and Volkswagen at the same price?

The original Song Xiaofeng apologized for jumping "Subject 3" in the Spring Festival Evening and told the creative process, which was different from the director’s statement.

Original title: Song Xiaofeng apologized for jumping "Subject 3" in the Spring Festival Evening and told the creative process, which was different from the director’s statement.

Just today

As the Spring Festival approaches, the recording scene of the Spring Festival Gala has set off a sensational "Subject III" storm, and Zhao Benshan’s disciple Song Xiaofeng has become the focus! On the sketch of anhui tv Spring Festival Evening, the funny artist suddenly danced the controversial "Subject Three" dance, which made the audience and the Internet fall silent, and this move also caused a fierce controversy.

How did this Spring Festival Evening storm ferment? Let’s unveil the mystery of this Spring Festival Gala and discuss the story behind the stars.

First of all, looking back at the recording scene, Song Xiaofeng, as a disciple of Zhao Benshan, is good at humor. However, when he learned that he needed to jump to "subject three", his first reaction was to refuse! He thinks this dance has been "out" in the Spring Festival Evening, and he is no longer suitable for this kind of young people’s dance at his age. This view has sparked a heated debate between the director and the screenwriter. The director thinks that "Subject III" can enhance the atmosphere of the sketch, while the screenwriter thinks that this is an outdated stalk.

In the end, Song Xiaofeng gave in and learned this dance. He thinks that as an actor, it is most basic to respect the director, although he has doubts about this decision. This heated discussion adds a lot of drama to a simple dance.

This incident triggered thinking about the relationship between innovation and tradition in the Spring Festival Gala. Director Gao Hailong believes that the modern Spring Festival Gala needs to be younger and more fashionable, and "Subject III" is the element that can attract young audiences. His persistence makes the whole sketch more lively and energetic on the stage.

However, Song Xiaofeng’s response has complicated the dispute. In his response, he said that he didn’t expect to cause trouble to everyone, and wished everyone a happy New Year in advance. However, unlike the director’s statement, he revealed that he knew nothing about "Subject III" when he saw the script, and he had doubts about dancing this kind of dance at his age. This makes people think more about the differences and compromises between actors and directors in the creative process.

This "subject three" storm made the audience see that the Spring Festival Evening is no longer just a machine to create paragraphs, but is constantly trying to innovate. The conflict between actors and directors and the audience’s expectation for the innovation of the Spring Festival Gala all make this year’s Spring Festival Gala more interesting.

Generally speaking, this Spring Festival Gala is like a wonderful drama, with fierce conflict between actors and directors, real emotional expression, and more laughter and tears expected by the audience. Whether it is for or against "Subject Three", this controversy has become a highlight of the Spring Festival Evening. Looking forward to the future Spring Festival Evening, we can continue to present more exciting programs for the audience. Let’s look forward to more surprises and touches on the stage of the Spring Festival Evening. On this stage full of collision between traditional culture and modern elements, we have witnessed the gorgeous transformation of Spring Festival Gala again and again.

Thank you for watching ~

E-commerce problem: please merchants or please users?

Original receiver Tech studio

Wen | Rao Yan

Editor | Brother Cai

To do a good job in e-commerce platform, should we pay more attention to merchants or users?

This is a controversial topic, and it is also a problem that is deeply confused by major e-commerce platforms. It seems that there is no standard answer.

Some people think that e-commerce platforms should pay more attention to merchants, because merchants can directly bring benefits to the platform; Some people think that we should pay attention to users, because users are customers who pay for money, "God" and traffic.

Some people think that both users and merchants should pay attention to it, but as a platform, e-commerce will treat merchants and users differently from a strategic perspective or from a specific implementation level, and it will inevitably focus on it.

For a long time in the past, both Ali and JD.COM, as established e-commerce platforms, and Tik Tok and Aauto Quicker, as emerging live e-commerce platforms, have consistently put businesses at the strategic core.

Compared with pleasing users, these e-commerce platforms pay more attention to pleasing merchants. After all, merchants can bring advertising, commissions and other service fees to the platform, which is also an important part of the existence of e-commerce platforms.

However, in the last two years, this concept has undergone a major change, and e-commerce platforms have begun to pay more attention to users.

In 2023, Ma Yun set the theme of "returning to Taobao, returning to users and returning to the Internet" for Ali’s transformation. One of the three themes is returning to users, emphasizing the importance of users.

In fact, Ali paid more attention to merchants in his early years, and "valuing merchants and neglecting users" was even regarded as Ali’s own gene. But now, while regaining the low-price strategy, Ali emphasizes paying attention to users and interprets e-commerce with his own experience. More attention should be paid to the laws of users.

JD.COM has repeatedly emphasized the importance of users in the process of pushing forward the low-price strategy. On March 29th, Liu Qiangdong, the founder of JD.COM, issued a letter to all employees, announcing that the corporate culture of JD.COM has been upgraded, and the core values of JD.COM have been upgraded to: customer first, innovation, hard work, responsibility, gratitude and honesty. Customer first has been used and put in the first place.

As a rising star of e-commerce, Pinduoduo has emphasized the importance of users since its establishment. Both its simple and direct "10 billion subsidy" and its harsh "only refund" model show the fact that Pinduoduo cares more about users than merchants.

As the latter, Pinduoduo can snatch food from other e-commerce platforms and develop rapidly. Paying attention to users is undoubtedly one of the secrets, which is also the real practice of the idea of "turning capitalism upside down" put forward by the founder of Pinduoduo in his early years.

At the end of last year, Taobao and JD.COM also launched a "refund only" service; At the beginning of this year, Tik Tok e-commerce also launched a fast refund service after delivery, which is aimed at all small shop merchants in the Tik Tok platform; At about the same time, Aauto Quicker e-commerce also upgraded the refund function after merchants agreed to reject it.

At this point, "refund only" has become a standard in the e-commerce industry, which means that the e-commerce platform finally chooses to lean towards consumers in the balance of interests of merchants, brands and users, and the e-commerce platform competes for users again.

In fact, the essence of retail is to provide users with better goods at lower prices and better services. In this sense, the e-commerce platform attaches importance to users, which is not only a transformation, but also a return, or a subversion of traditional production relations.

-01-

How do merchants and users view e-commerce platforms?

Consumers and businesses have different views on how e-commerce should be done and what kind of e-commerce the market needs.

Wang Li is a middle-level manager of an Internet giant. In the past years, he has been advocating all kinds of luxury goods. Many salespeople of big brands are his "WeChat friends". The annual shopping expenses range from hundreds of thousands of yuan to hundreds of thousands of yuan.

However, in the last three years, Wang Li’s consumption concept has changed. He is no longer obsessed with big brands, but pays more attention to adaptability. He usually shops through e-commerce platforms. "The quality of fruits that are killed by e-commerce platforms in a limited time is not worse than that of boutique merchants.; Daily necessities can also be purchased on the e-commerce platform. "

"Some daily necessities don’t need to pursue quality too much, as long as they can meet the demand. As for whether it is a brand or not, it is not that important on which platform to buy it." Wang Li told "handset tech (ID: tingtontech)".

Like Wang Li, more and more consumers are no longer loyal to an e-commerce platform, but choose the products they need to buy on different e-commerce platforms. They choose according to their needs, instead of blindly pursuing quality, they pay more attention to cost performance.

So what kind of e-commerce platform are businesses more willing to settle in?

The ultimate pursuit of merchants is to maximize profits. Which e-commerce platform can make merchants realize greater benefits, merchants are willing to cooperate with which platform. However, it is not easy to achieve this goal, which requires the cooperation between merchants and platforms, involving advertising services, commissions, platform policies, platform logistics, and promotional activities.

Liu Ming, the head of the manufacturer of clothing, shoes and hats in Guangzhou, told Earphone Tech that he was more willing to settle in Taobao and Tmall in his early years, because Ali paid more attention to the support and protection of merchants, and the platform brand was well-known and the traffic was large. "But in recent years, the traffic of Taotian was not as good as before, and our income was also affected."

In recent years, Liu Ming has changed his strategy and adopted a multi-platform operation mode. According to the characteristics and differences of various e-commerce platforms, he has promoted different product lines and diversified price systems. At the same time, he has increased cooperation with live broadcast e-commerce companies such as Tik Tok and Aauto Quicker.

Feng Li, a small and medium-sized manufacturer of towels, recently told "Earphone Tech" that "we have cooperated with different e-commerce platforms, and went to stock through Pinduoduo and 1688, and mainly made brands in Tmall."

Feng Li said that although the profit margin of low-priced platforms is not high, the sales volume is good. Although the profit margin of quality products is high, the investment is also more. "For example, the cost of Tmall stores is much higher and the operating costs are relatively large."

Feng Li calculated that compared with other e-commerce platforms, the profit rate of towels on Pinduoduo was at least 2 points higher, because of a large number of orders. "We also broadcast live in Aauto Quicker, and the price is also very cheap, and the sales volume is not bad." Feng Li said that the main income for one year now comes from two platforms: Pinduoduo and Aauto Quicker.

For businesses, it will cost more to be a brand. In the current economic situation, large sales volume and low cost are the pursuit of all businesses, and they are also the common requirements of a large number of small and medium-sized businesses for e-commerce platforms.

In recent years, with the return of mass consumption to rationality, the sales of many high-premium brand products have declined. In order to save the market, some high-premium brands have begun to cut prices sharply.

This is also an important reason for the rapid rise of Pinduoduo and Aauto Quicker in the past two years. In a rational consumption channel, excessive pursuit of brand premium won’t work, and high cost-effective goods have a way out. The surge in sales of white-brand goods in the past two years is also this logic.

-02-

Should e-commerce please merchants or please consumers?

Should the e-commerce platform pay more attention to merchants or consumers? There seems to be no standard answer, but time and reality give the final answer.

As a veteran e-commerce, Ali paid more attention to merchants in his early years, and "emphasizing merchants and neglecting users" was also regarded as a major feature of Ali. Ali emphasized in his early years that "there should be no difficult business in the world".

In the early days of e-commerce, many merchants didn’t understand e-commerce and wouldn’t sell online. Taobao put forward such a concept in those years, but now the times are different and e-commerce has matured. The platform should not only focus on how merchants sell good goods, but should pay more attention to letting consumers buy good goods.

For a long time in the past, Taobao Tmall’s platform grew bigger and bigger, and its business developed faster and faster, but users did not feel better service.

Sometimes there is a contradiction between users and merchants. When merchants can’t solve users’ problems, the platform customer service either can’t contact or doesn’t solve the problems. The customer service efficiency is very low, and many users have complained about such problems.

In those years, during the annual promotion activities, users finally enjoyed some preferential prices, and the e-commerce platform also vigorously promoted preferential prices. However, what the end users felt was not real cheap, but various words and routines, and the algorithms were also very complicated. In order to enjoy the preferential prices, users had to meet various requirements.

What is even more unacceptable to consumers is that even if users place orders in this way, they finally find that it is not much cheaper. Moreover, the e-commerce platform has been playing in this way for many years until consumers are bored with it.

In 2023, just as Ali’s market value was once surpassed by Pinduoduo, Ali employees left messages on the intranet, bluntly saying that Taotian should "simply buy, simply return, less routines and more benefits", which spoke out the voices of many users and also showed that Ali began to realize the problem.

In fact, Taobao’s early positioning was similar to that of Pinduoduo, and it grew up with low prices and small and medium-sized businesses. Unfortunately, Ali later abandoned many small and medium-sized businesses on his own initiative.

A few years ago, Ali firmly believed that an era of consumption upgrading was coming. Therefore, Taobao constantly upgraded its brand, introduced a large number of brands to settle in, and the annual technical service fee and default bond of the store also increased, causing some small and medium-sized businesses with weak competitiveness to leave Taobao.

This wave even spread to AliExpress, a cross-border e-commerce platform owned by Ali at that time. Around 2016, AliExpress more aggressively promoted brand transformation, requiring merchants to have corporate qualifications and brand authorization, and comprehensively cleaned up individual sellers.

In this way, not only small and medium-sized businesses have left Taotian and AliExpress, but also users have begun to choose other e-commerce platforms. The impact on Ali is that the development of Taotian has slowed down, the traffic has been separated, and the frequency and retention time of users have become less and less.

About ten years ago, AliExpress had almost no China rivals in the cross-border e-commerce field at that time, and it was very convenient for merchants to sell goods. With one click, the product information on Taobao could be transported to AliExpress. However, the departure of small and medium-sized merchants made AliExpress develop slowly after its initial success. In the last two years, the cross-border e-commerce fire broke out, and AliExpress started early but caught up with a late episode.

When Ali realized all this, the Internet had already bid farewell to the high-growth era in the past and entered the moment with the theme of reducing costs and increasing efficiency. At this time, Ali had to face not only Pinduoduo, a rapidly rising opponent, but also the impact brought by live e-commerce on short video platforms, and the original advantages of Taobao and Tmall were weakening.

To this end, Ali launched the largest organizational change since its establishment in 2023, and then made personnel adjustments. Zhang Yong’s position as Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Group was handed over to Cai Chongxin, and the CEO position was taken over by Wu Yongming. The CEO of Taotian Group, the core e-commerce business, was also replaced at the end of last year.

Ma Yun thinks that the situation of Taotian Group is very serious, and asks Ali to return to Taobao, users and the Internet.

If Ali started to return to users after a long walk, then Pinduoduo, as a rising star, decided to put users first from the beginning.

Unlike Ali, who pays more attention to businesses, Pinduoduo cares more about users. Ali emphasizes "no hard business in the world", while Pinduoduo makes users feel that "there is no hard goods in the world".

In fact, low price is a universal demand. No matter the rich or the poor, there is a demand for "what they want" at an "affordable price", and Pinduoduo attracts people who are looking for high cost performance.

People in this group may spend a lot of money on an expensive brand-name watch or spend 9.9 yuan on a towel, and Wang Li is one of them.

When Pinduoduo was founded, data showed that about 90% of China adults had never drunk Starbucks, 1.3 billion people had never been abroad, and 1 billion people had never been on an airplane, and low-and middle-income people still accounted for the vast majority.

What Pinduoduo needs to do is matching, so that the right people can buy the right things in the right scene, which can not only provide the consumers in the sinking market with the right goods, but also provide the consumers in the first-and second-tier cities with the matching goods categories.

This is not a consumption downgrade, but a consumption classification. Pinduoduo’s approach also has its own unique business logic.

The founder of Pinduoduo once wrote an article called "Turn Capitalism upside down", which mentioned that as the ultimate representative of capitalism, the essence of insurance is that the poor spend money to buy a product that "seeks stability in an uncertain future" from the rich, so as to strengthen their ability to resist risks, and eventually wealth will flow from the poor to the rich.

The article puts forward a hypothesis, can the rich buy "insurance" from the poor in reverse, that is, buy a kind of stability, so that wealth can flow from the rich to the poor?

"Everyone’s wishes, their needs and plans at some point in the future are often much clearer than others. Moreover, this kind of everyone’s planning and willingness, as well as the individual’s certainty of a certain behavior, are often valuable to the supplier who meets the demand. It can reduce the uncertainty of organizational production and help achieve more effective allocation of resources and capital. "

Based on this concept, the article believes that if there is a platform that can get enough customers to buy a certain product, integrate the customers’ needs and send an order to the factory, the factory will sell the products to these customers at a price lower than the market price.

Moreover, because this order pays a certainty to the factory, the factory can reduce the risk of market research and forecasting the production direction of the market, and also reduce the inventory cost.

In a sense, this is a new type of relations of production, which was really realized by Pinduoduo later, and became the underlying logic of Pinduoduo.

Perhaps many people once resented Pinduoduo’s "cutting a knife", but they have to admit that Pinduoduo’s "reverse capitalism" has succeeded. In the past two years, while most Internet giants have experienced a trough, Pinduoduo has been growing substantially.

This is not so much a victory of the new e-commerce model as a victory of embracing users in the Internet age.

How does the e-commerce platform please users?

How should the e-commerce platform please users? The first is low price.

The essence of retail is to provide users with better goods at lower prices and better services. Low price is the big killer, and cheap is the last word, which is also the truth confirmed by the development of domestic e-commerce.

Domestic e-commerce has developed for so many years, and the competition has never stopped, and the means of competition are also varied. However, the most powerful means of competition has never changed, and it is still a price war.

On June 1st, 2019, Pinduoduo entered the "618 Promotion" for the first time in an all-round way, and announced that in the form of "10 billion yuan cash subsidy", joint brand merchants would make substantial profits on 10,000 items with the highest popularity in the whole network.

Compared with the subsidies of other e-commerce platforms with complicated algorithms, Pinduoduo’s tens of billions of subsidies are simple and straightforward, either directly subsidizing or directly reducing prices, and there is no need to make a bill or play "full reduction", which also makes Pinduoduo, which was originally dominant in the sinking market, win more shares and uses.

According to the data in the early years, during the period of June 18, 2019, the number of orders in Pinduoduo exceeded 1.08 billion, and GMV increased by over 300% year-on-year. Since then, the subsidy of 10 billion yuan has become a long-term strategy of Pinduoduo and a powerful means to attract users. By this means, Pinduoduo artificially created a price depression and snatched a large number of user orders from Tmall and JD.COM.

In fact, in the early years, Taobao also defeated offline retail by relying on low prices, and began the prosperity of e-commerce; JD.COM also defeated Dangdang, the dominant book e-commerce company at that time, and Suning, the leading retailer of traditional household appliances, through low prices, thus winning a relatively stable market position.

Only later, with the continuous development of Taobao and JD.COM, the advantage of low price was lost. Until 2023, these two platforms began to pay attention to low price again.

In fact, since 2023, almost all e-commerce platforms have launched low prices. Besides Taotian and JD.COM, there are also live e-commerce platforms such as Tik Tok and Aauto Quicker. Like Pinduoduo, e-commerce in Aauto Quicker is also based on the sinking market, and in 2023, it ushered in a rapid growth in performance.

In addition to low prices, another way for e-commerce platforms to please users is to improve service quality and improve user experience. Since 2023, almost all e-commerce platforms have been working hard to improve the user experience.

Ali determined the theme of returning to e-commerce and returning to users, and established the strategy of building a big amoy. Facing the future, Taotian has determined three directions of "innovation and innovation", upgrading new scenes, new ecology and new technologies, among which the first one is user priority.

At the end of 2023, after Ma Yun shouted "Ali will change", Liu Qiangdong also replied to employees’ comments on the company intranet that JD.COM must change, otherwise there is no way out. "I believe we will definitely get out of the trough. Anyone and any company will experience several peaks and valleys to achieve greatness. "

Xu Ran, CEO of JD.COM, also responded that JD.COM has made some progress in price competitiveness, platform ecological construction and supply chain advantages. While the number of merchants has further expanded, the increase in the number of users has also proved the optimization of platform ecological construction.

Xu Ran said, "In the long run, JD.COM will resolutely pursue the ultimate user experience to maintain its core competitive advantage".

When e-commerce platforms begin to pursue low prices and changes, they all begin to emphasize user experience, which also means that e-commerce companies are changing their business philosophy and paying more attention to users’ needs.

Why are a large number of industrial belt enterprises willing to dig deep into the white-brand track? When the business model is based on "maximizing the unit consumption benefit", businesses can provide consumers with the products that best meet their actual needs at the lowest cost and price, and thus survive and develop.

In the future industrial world, whoever controls consumers will control manufacturing. If you can’t directly connect with consumers, you can’t win consumers, and you are doomed to have no longer-term future.

This is the future of retail and the long-term doctrine of e-commerce.
