For those seeking Japan Market Entry, is your website attracting the right customers? Are you getting the sales volume you expect online?
Unfortunately, in Japan, many websites are built on outdated technology, and even with upgrades, the sites still suffer from poor search engine optimization (SEO) practices. As a result, they do not attract customers, and frustration grows because ”all this web stuff” doesn’t seem to work. Most businesses do not realize they are losing millions of yen (or dollars) every year.
As a new business that wants to penetrate the Japanese market, this can be a competitive advantage for you, if you go about it in the right way.
Successful web marketing depends upon a proper SEO strategy. In his talk, Jeff Crawford of Zo Digital Japan will break down complex SEO topics into simple steps. Moreover, he will provide simple steps to get your website optimized around what customers are looking for and rank you ahead of your competitors. Finally, Jeff will also share the Top-10 SEO mistakes that many businesses in Japan make today.
