Video-Shopping Experience has bear fruitful results in countries like China which has been tackling the COVID-19 crisis for a much longer duration. For instance, Chinese brand Lin Qingxuan got 100+ of its beauty advisors to become online influencers who used online platforms such as WeChat to engage customers and drive sales.
