Modern Office Space
Japanese partner development / idea competition

Marketing, digital marketing, branding, public relations, and promotion can strategically gather local insights and data before fully addressing the relocation to Japan. To do this, we recommend hiring an agency that provides marketing services in the area you are considering relocating.

The best way is to use a service like ForeignConnect to find a local distributor and establish a local operation.

Japanese partner development builds relationships with companies (agencies, vendors) that serve clients and monitors vendors to deliver high quality services on time and to ensure that they meet their contractual obligations. You can manage the relationship.

Also, in the idea competition, you can solicit ideas for global campaigns from multiple local agencies and hire a team to adopt the ideas as they are.

By hiring a local team, you get the following insights without any language or cultural gaps ...

It takes time and money to educate internal team members from scratch on the local market

Training is less time consuming and costly as we hire marketing experts who are already familiar with local information.

Companies often don't know how to get started in marketing to a foreign market natively. With the help of FC and a local agency, they can overcome this problem.

By hiring local services, you can execute strategies that take into account not only communication gaps created by language and cultural differences, but also insights of local consumers.
