Despite having strong direct commerce channel, we continue to seek new business opportunities, especially on the online world, as there are as many as 60 million internet users across the country. We, therefore, revolutionized the ways of distribution of RS Mall to RS Mall X to expand our growth potential and advance our business through social commerce under the MCN Model, where we encouraged 120 artists under RS Multimedia & Entertainment and RS Music, whose total followers’ accounts far exceeded 20 million, to become our content creators. Affiliate marketing was introduced for independent influencers. At the same time, we also diversified our products and services to cater to the customers’ needs. Today, we have more than 500 SKUs of products, with 60% being our own brands and 40% being our partnered brands, to reach extensive customer base of every segment, age group, and lifestyle.

After we rebranded ourselves to RS Mall X, we will expand our customer base to 18-65 years old through the channels online marketplaces and live commerce, by utilizing RS Group’s artists who have strong follower base and have been trained for social commerce model.
