Help Needed: What is your opinion about Amazon Market Competition in Japan?

3 replies
Greeting Warriors,
I am wondering if there are any internet marketers herein W.F fighting on the Amazon Japan Market. Even in other languages, like French, Italy, German.
And I have several questions in my mind:
1. how will you pick the domain name, in English or local version?
2. if you do marketing, is there any software available for analysis, for keywords, competition, or maybe the big G is enough?

okay, the above are my current thinking about this topic.

Appreciate any ideas and suggestions.

    I just asked my wife who's from Italy about this... She says everyone in Italy uses Google, and everyone is starting to use Amazon a lot more.

    Maybe I'll have her make some Italian sites...?

    I would say definitely pick the domain name in the native language, with native language keywords.

      I just checked the domain name in Japanese,
      CanonデジタルカメラPowershotSX130IS.com
      then I type it in the address bar and it comes out:
      http://www.xn--canonpowershotsx130is...fxh3zyg1b.com/
      what is the problem?
      My question is what to do with the Japanese characters in the domain name?
      Is this the common issue with other languages?

      Many Thanks

    It would be very interesting to market to (I'm assuming untapped) countries like this, but the problem is that it would be likely impossible unless you were fluent in the language. I'm sure using an online translation tool would end up with the Japanese equivalent of Engrish, for example.
