About Nanjing Marketing Group

At Nanjing Marketing Group, we shorten the distance between people from China and the rest of the world, making cross-border cooperation more profitable.

Our 20+ person team has the experience and culture to help global B2B businesses rapidly scale up their leads, and help schools generate more enrollments.

Our small cross-functional teams will handle all your Chinese marketing needs. Each team has no more than one client per full-time staff member. Plus, they have the support of a network of industry veterans with a decade or more of experience in writing, social marketing, search marketing, video production, and more.

We will relentlessly improve your marketing.

Our Core Values

Explore, Create, Discover.

We approach work with the mantra of “探索 (explore),创新 (create),发现 (discover),” and believe in constant innovation and data-based analysis. This is implemented in our bi-weekly sprints, where we generate many new ideas, implement them, then analyze as a team.

Our Team

Tait Lawton


Tait is from Edmonton, Canada, and first came into contact with the Chinese language in high school. At that time, China was seen more as the world’s factory, rather than as a source of consumers. We could say he saw the business potential, but that’s only half-true. Really, he mostly just liked the opportunity to interact with people in a very different language and culture.

In 2002, Tait started his first online business while in school, buying video game accessories from China and reselling in North America. He later came to Nanjing as a study abroad student as part of his Bachelor of Commerce degree from University of Alberta. There he met his Nanjingese girlfriend, who is now his wife.

Since founding Nanjing Marketing Group in 2008, Tait has overseen more than 100 client projects. He has a broad range of marketing skills including strategy, digital analytics & team formation as well as search marketing, SEO & content marketing. He oversees partnerships and our team of account managers.

Tait has been quoted by CNNBBCClickZ, PPCHero, Search Engine Journal, Tech in Asia, QuartzCBC and other publications.

Tait splits his time between China and Canada. He lives with his wife and two daughters.
