A strong web presence is a prerequisite for any multinational company wishing to build its B2B business in Japan. This means your website should at least match the quality of competitor websites, whether they be Japanese or other multinational companies. Web pages in Japan need to be in Japanese, with the text being natural and the message just as appealing as the original English.
Our B2B Website Management Service is a menu of activity designed to improve the quality, performance, and contribution of your Japanese web pages. It provides the following support for B2B businesses in Japan.
For most multinational B2B companies, developing a Japanese website involves selecting the content most relevant for the business in Japan and then forming a plan to localize the required web pages in phases. Graphic design expertise is required to select the appropriate fonts for Japanese language and localize images with a strong regional flavor. Additional copy writing is sometimes required to generate stronger appeals toward Japanese audiences.
Maintenance involves implementing changes to existing content and uploading website assets such as PDF catalogs and videos. Requests for changes are performed within 24 hours of receipt. We work with enterprise versions of all the major content management systems such as Adobe Experience Manager, Sitecore, Drupal, WordPress, and Joomla.
The addition of new content on a regular basis improves user experience and position in search engine results. Our B2B Website Management Service helps you to plan and create a pipeline of new materials for use on your Japanese website to build website traffic.
Appearing on the first page of search results for a B2B product or service will boost traffic to your Japanese website and increase inquiries. Our B2B Website Management Service enables you to improve your position in keyword searches and eliminates on-page errors which affect user experience and search engine evaluations of your Japanese website.
We customize Google Analytics reports to enable you to monitor the same KPI as you do for other countries. Regular monthly meetings for reporting and planning of activity can be conducted remotely or at your Japanese headquarters.
