Outline of partnership with Cosme Kitchen
Cosme Kitchen’s concept is “Delicious food for your skin and soul.” We carefully select natural items from around the world, including unique natural and organic cosmetics, aromas, herbs, miscellaneous goods, and detergents. I am proposing it. From March 2024, we will start selling products from three brands: F ORGANICS / O by F / Mitea ORGANIC on the Fengdou app.
Inagora has been operating the Fengdou app since 2014, offering a wide variety of Japanese products suitable for cross-border e-commerce, and targeting Chinese customers who are fans of Japanese products. In addition to the Fengdou app that we operate, we have also opened flagship stores on multiple e-commerce platforms from major Chinese companies, making full use of marketing methods unique to China’s SNS that are suited to the characteristics of each e-commerce platform. We have developed a complex business in China and have accumulated cross-border e-commerce management know-how.
Chinese travelers use SNS to complete everything from the planning stage of their trip to sharing post-trip reviews, so it is important to create points of contact and approach individual travelers on China’s unique SNS, which is the most used. Masu.
InAgora, which has strengths in China’s unique SNS management, has recently opened an official Cosme Kitchen account on the SNS app “Redbook”, which is called the Chinese version of Instagram, and through content production and distribution. , we will strengthen our efforts to increase awareness with an eye on inbound demand. In addition, we will promote purchases through the cross-border e-commerce service “Fengdou App” operated by InAgora as a place for repeat purchases after returning home.
Expectations for cross-border e-commerce due to weak yen effects and recovery in inbound tourism
According to the “Trend Map 2024 First Half” released by Nikkei BP in May 2024, which analyzes trends in the fields of marketing,
consumption, and technology, the future potential score of
“cross-border EC” in the consumption trend field increased by 0.27 points. 3.67, showing the highest growth in future prospects since the previous survey. Demand is expected to continue to grow, with the number of foreign visitors to Japan exceeding 3 million in a single month for the first time in March 2024. The reason why we are focusing on cross-border e-commerce is to play the role of a receptacle when these foreign visitors to Japan feel an affinity for the products and company brands they encountered in Japan and want to purchase or make more purchases after returning home. The prevailing view is that there is huge hidden potential for growth.
