communicate with overseas headquarters

Difficulty in securing personnel who can communicate with overseas headquarters

Marketing-Related communication with overseas headquarters (budgeting, regular reporting, attendance during a visit to Japan, etc.)
Foreign companies in Japan are required to formulate marketing strategies suitable for the Japanese market based on the strategies at their overseas headquarters, and to take measures in all the areas of marketing to increase sales. However, it is difficult to secure human resources capable of responding to such needs. As Japanese companies place importance on sales activities, we often hear that Western companies that place importance on marketing activities have difficulty communicating with their overseas headquarters.

We recommend our services to companies like these.

Want someone with a lot of marketing experience who can speak English.
Is there anyone who can fill the gap until we hire a marketing person?
Want to achieve results by minimizing personnel costs for marketing.
Want to hire temporary marketing people on a project basis.
Want someone to act for the reporting meeting with the marketing manager of the overseas head office.

Case Study

Substantial increase in the number of inquiries and orders received
Efficiency has improved by clarifying role divisions between the sales team and the marketing team. Also, the number of inquiries and the rate of orders received has improved significantly. By actively participating in exhibitions, events, and forums, we have considerably increased recognition within the industry. Besides, by regularly reporting the marketing activities of the Japanese subsidiary to the U.S. headquarters, they evaluated the operations, and the marketing budget increased by 50% compared with the previous fiscal year.
As a marketing manager (regular employee) left the company, it was necessary to hire a marketing staff who can speak English. They used our services as a stopgap until they hire a regular employee. Our CEO took over as a marketing manager.
