Hello. Hope you had a good weekend.
My daughter Laura studies Japanese at high school and part of the course is visiting Japan next year. The school has an exchange thing going, where Japanese students visit here and our students go over there.
This Thursday we are having a Japanese student stay with us for 12 days. Should be a bit of fun.
I was thinking about that when I read some research today. The research showed that Japan has had 3 successive months of increasing Internet usage growth. That is, more and more Japanese are now getting online. Something like 33,000,000 users.
That’s a big market
That’s a big market. And a big market that businesses with web sites can access.
You see, business doesn’t just come from a 5km radius these days. Business comes from all over the world – if you’re smart. Could your business sell to the Japanese? Could you set up a Japanese language web site?
Think outside the square (or the country) and you’ll achieve success. 33,000,000 potential customers. That’s a big, big market.
