When a foreign company enters the Japanese market, they need to adapt their marketing strategy to local consumer behavior. Failure to do often results in high marketing spend with low ROI.

Many foreign companies fail to properly localize their marketing strategies when entering Japan; these companies mistakenly assume the tactics that won them clients in their home country will also work abroad despite deep cultural differences.

This webinar will highlight consumer relationships with social media in Japan, and how foreign companies can effectively utilize digital platforms to expand their business presence to Japanese consumers.

Hear experts compare and contrast the different ways consumers utilize social media in Japan and the United States. This webinar is especially recommended for SMEs who want to successfully market to Japanese consumers without hiring third-party ad agencies.
