Social search engines can provide brands with a powerful word-of-mouth effect and WeChat has a lot of potential with its Sogou search integration. An important WeChat search feature is known as brand zone search and to be active on “brand zone”, a brand needs to fulfil three main criteria: to be verified by WeChat, receive trademark protection and have WeChat Pay activated. The search function is located on the top of the WeChat search page where users can directly access official accounts, mini programs and store locations. Brand zone is a great opportunity for brands to take full control of the internal search function and offer users a quick gateway into the WeChat ecosystem considering that it is a primary source of how brands obtain followers.
