We know that even if we teach you everything about WeChat, you may not use WeChat every day unless you are motivated to do so. 

There are two strong motivating factors to use WeChat: China and Tencent.

As we know, today China is actually richer than USA in terms of GDP PPP. China is also strong military. Most importantly, China has the Belt and Road Initative that will create economic value in excess of US$61 trillion

The other power behind WeChat Power is Tencent Holdings, the company that creates and owns WeChat. Tencent is now the largest value company in Asia, and ranks 5th in worldwide market capitalisation

Power Behind WeChat Power: China and Tencent Holdings

We know that WeChat has a powerful cashless payment platform called WeChat Pay. 

To use WeChat Pay, you need to install WeChat Wallet inside your WeChat account. 

There are 2 ways to open WeChat Wallet: either you have a bank account opened physically in China or you use your Visa or Mastercard to authenticate. 

In this lecture we shall demonstrate how you can do both of them.

When you have WeChat Wallet, you can give out Red Packets, a powerful feature of WeChat

The 5 major limitations of WeChat are:

5 Major Limitations of WeChat and How to Get Around Them

Momements on WeChat is like your Newsfeeds in Facebook, with the only difference that unlike Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn, only your friends on WeChat can see your Moments posts.  Friends of friends cannot read what you post. So in a sense WeChat is more private and secure. 

There are two ways to post Moments: with photos and without photos. We shall show you the detailed steps on how you to do both of them.  Happy Moments posting!

WeChat Mini Programs (小程序) is mini app within WeChat. Instead of having you to download mobile apps, register for them and do regular updates, WeChat saves you all these troubles by incoporating them all under "Discover" page of WeChat.  Currently (April 2018) there are more than 2 million Mini Programs in the world. 

You can download some of the most popular ones: 美篇,腾讯视频,群里有事,识花君,腾讯翻译君 

WeChat Official Accounts (公众号) are mobile websites inside WeChat.  Instead of having you do create your own websites, make them mobile friendly and ask people to visit your websites, WeChat incorporates them into WeChat and called them Official Accounts. 

You can create your own Official Accounts free-of-charge and each business registration can register up to 5 Official Accounts. In this lecture we shall teach you the steps to do so
