Japan is the third-largest economy in the world and many companies extend their business here. Despite a company’s domestic competence, having local help in Japan is essential to the smooth operation of your business as the culture is quite different from your own. I was born and raised in Japan and also lived in Australia for work. I’ve seen that a great marketing method may work well in Japan but not in Australia, and vice versa. If you run your business in Japan, it’s crucial to understand Japanese perspectives. Please let me support your business by tailoring your website to attract customers in Japan.
This unprecedented pandemic has forced us to change our lives, and the new norm is completely different. The business book Who Moved My Cheese? describes change in one’s work and life. This global situation illustrates the book’s idea that some people can’t accept reality, while others instantly adapt to the new normal. Many companies and stores are finding their way online as an essential channel to survive in this era. With this new frontier, however, comes a new set of challenges; I will support your needs not only by creating your website, but also by helping you deliver your message effectively.
Hi, I’m Aki! I am eager to make full use of my entire skill set to help your business thrive.
I have 6 years of experience in Japanese sales. I worked for a major IT company, selling to SMEs in Japan.
After that, I moved to Sydney and majored in marketing at a local vocational school while working full-time at a company.
Upon returning to Japan in 2019, I worked at the Australian and New Zealand Chamber of Commerce in Japan as the senior operations manager.
Wanting to take advantage of my extensive experience in addition to my main job, I started this small business. It is my goal to make full use of my background in language, sales, marketing, and operations, providing insight into Japanese perspectives and culture to boost your business effectively.
