We also get to listen to Tingting Fang, Brand Director of JudyDoll, one of the fastest growing cosmetics brands in China. Founded just 18 months ago, JudyDoll has already surpassed established companies such as L’Oreal in some respects by utilizing social e-commerce and new ways to both engage and sell products online.

Topics this episode covers:

  • What is “Social E-commerce”?
  • Why was Pinduoduo able to grab market-share from much larger players such as Alibaba?
  • Will Amazon be disrupted in the same way?
