[About “GMO Ask for Easy Overseas Research”]
In recent years, the world’s population has been increasing, and many countries are continuing to grow. (*1) However, because the culture, customs, values, and laws involved in doing business overseas are different from those in Japan, there are many cases where products that sell well in Japan do not sell overseas. Therefore, in order to develop business overseas, where there is a chance to increase sales and profit margins, it is essential to conduct preliminary research in the appropriate country or region.
Therefore, for marketers considering overseas expansion, we will start offering “GMO Ask for Easy Overseas Research”, which supports everything from meetings with professional researchers, survey implementation, and report delivery. By making full use of our research knowledge and AI, we can solve problems such as “I don’t know what kind of research design to use” and “I can’t take the risk of spending a large amount of research money.” We support your overseas expansion by conducting smooth investigations.

“GMO Ask for Easy Overseas Survey” is a packaged survey service for companies aiming to expand their products and services overseas. There are three survey templates: consumer needs understanding module, concept evaluation module, and competitive benchmarking module, and you can conduct efficient surveys by applying brand, product, and service names to each company.
1. Consumer needs understanding module
We understand local consumer needs and research and analyze target groups that will lead to product purchases.
It is possible to explore “current problems” and “the direction of future needs” and understand the conditions under which consumers will pay.
2. Concept evaluation module
This is a survey aimed at confirming the reasons for evaluating the product concept (does it meet user needs, does it show interest, what are its appeals and areas that need to be strengthened, are there any areas for improvement, etc.). Through these results, we will clarify the potential and problems of the idea, and aim to improve products and services to make them more feasible and effective.
3. competitive benchmark module
We evaluate and compare your company’s management policies and products based on examples from competitors and local companies expanding overseas, and use this information to improve your business. By referring to the examples of competitors, you can formulate a differentiation strategy that leverages your strengths and overcome your weaknesses, and by comparing the situation with those of your competitors, you can improve the effectiveness of your company’s business strategies and products. This will lead to improvements. ■Service details
