Japanese Mobile Social Media – Find your best match
All top mobile social sites in Japan are doing well, and attracting more advertisers. You may think that you should be at both places to get the most exposures. But, you may not have a luxury of advertising everywhere you want to be. See the data here to make the smart decision.
It seems that Social Media market is still growing in Japan as both Gree and Mixi posted great Q2 results in October. In this quarter, Gree’s sales went up 94.3% from Q1, and Mixi adjusted their Q4 forecast upward by 3.3%. Since both are doing well, and attracting more advertisers, you may think that you should be at both places to get the most exposures. But, when the average advertising budget shrinking in US, you may not have a luxury of advertising everywhere you want to be. Even if you have, are these and other popular social media sites all good match to your services and the target market? When it comes to mobile sites, the user market seems to have clearer differences than web sites.
