market value approaching $10 billion, that so many people are stunned, it can be said that vip.com is in Tmall eyes underground played a grass root counter attack story, but I see this scene of deja vu, then remembered that is YY from QQ underground growing way low-key.
QQ was a popular retreat, MSN, Fetion into the past, NetEase bubble and Baidu Hi have crashed, but let a little more YY in the Tencent took a nap under the eyes quickly weaving a huge network, through the unique technology and products, to take 400 million the user does not leave God, in November 21, 2012 successfully landed on the Nasdaq, this is a gorgeous grassroots counter attack drama.
now vip.com looks and YY year counter attack and there are a lot of similarities. Vip.com was founded by Shen Ya and Hong Xiaobo in Guangzhou on December 2008, identify the vertical field of brand sale. In 2008, the financial crisis hit, garment enterprises and fashion industry inventory into big trouble, businesses and consumers in the winter, vip.com just jumped out to help you save the elimination library funds to consumers in Wujin purse, cheap discount brand become a big market demand, is the right time to fit.

contrast can be seen, vip.com and YY was unremarkable, the selection of the giant is a special vertical ignore the vertical
