Why outsource business development in Japan?
When speaking of outsourced business development services, we are referring to the process of outsourcing sales to a third-party service provider who is typically located in Japan. We at Revenew work through a network of qualified service providers offering a range of services that allows you to generate sales and revenues in Japan without the need to incorporate your company into the country physically just yet.
These services include market research and validation services, B2B lead generation, B2B appointment setting, sourcing distributors, resellers, strategic partners, and outsourced sales teams in the Japanese market. These services help you with:
a) testing early assumptions,
b) accelerating sales in new markets,
c) closing deals with clients that you might have struggled to connect with on your own.
Why is Japan an attractive market?
Japan has always been a popular country for investment because of its economic stability and maturity. In the World Bank's Ease of Doing Business Index 2020, Japan still comes in as the top 30 economies with a score of 78.0 out of 100.
The Japanese government has been increasingly supportive of foreign businesses and investors who are interested in setting up their business in Japan. Japan External Trade Organization (also known as JETRO) is promoting their program called Invest Japan Business Support Centers (IBSC) to foreign companies to assist them in establishing a base and expanding into Japan.
However, you could still face difficulties in starting your business in Japan due to the difference in language and culture, coupled with their long history and unique culture. As such, professional service providers on the ground will be able to help ease that differences and help you integrate your business more smoothly.
Growing revenues in new markets is not an easy feat and can be complex even for the best-resourced businesses.
Our team puts a lot of effort into finding to most reliable service providers across Japan and beyond. We then handle payments to provide another layer of security and assign a dedicated customer success manager to each project. Given the size of our network and experience of helping more than 150 companies grow revenues across APAC, it will be much faster to work with us. In addition, we will be able to help you find the right provider in a matter of hours. In contrast, if you do it yourself, you will struggle to find reliable websites, reviews, what industries the service providers have covered in the past, and other qualifications information you may need. The Revenew team has collected all that information and handled the due diligence on your behalf so that you can outsource your business development in no time.

Do you offer demand generation services?
Yes, we refer to such services as B2B lead generation, B2B appointment setting, and outsourced sales teams. We group all these services under Business Development Services. Such services are designed to help you outsource business development services to a network of qualified service providers on the ground in each market where we operate.
Some service providers refer to such those services as "demand-as-a-service," "demand generation," and/or "outsourced business development services".
What kind of results can we expect by engaging business development and market intelligence services?
All information will be relevant to the Japanese market such as trends, competitors, and customers. All that is gathered and analyzed through our service provider network to provide you accurate and real-time information so that you can make confident decisions. Most customers use such analysis to determine their go-to-market strategy in market opportunity, penetration, and development in Japan.
