It’s good to see my friend Jason Ball, an Aussie living and working in Japan for over 10 years, has just launched his ‘Business in Japan’ web portal. (The site is at www.businessinJapan.com).
It’s worth checking out if you have any interest in doing business in Japan or with Japanese companies.
You might also be aware that there is a LinkedIn group of the same name. In fact, Jason is also the main admin person for that group and I know he is quite proud that over 50,000 members are registered on the LinkedIn group, with around 35% of them based in Japan. It’s a big group with a lot of experience and expertise on life and work in Japan.
The idea of the new web portal is interesting because it will allow Jason to grow and manage an online community while avoiding some of the restrictions and issues that LinkedIn imposes. And I think it will be fascinating to see how Japan business experts can share information and connect with other members via this portal – in effect, participating in the ‘collaborative business world’ that Jason is renowned for.
I took a brief look at the portal’s blog page and there are already about a dozen posts from different specialists. One that caught my attention deals with social media in Japan/. Published at the end of December 2016 by PR Consultant, Donny Kimball, it summarized his business to consumer experiences using six well known social media services.
Most of the other content I haven’t read yet but I will and, where appropriate, I hope to comment and participate on the site in some constructive manner.
Okay that’s it for this post, my first in the year of the rooster (2017). As ever, if your business has any b2b technology content marketing needs that might benefit from a freelance commercial writer like myself, please get in touch via my contact page. I’d be delighted to see if I can be of assistance.
