Idea Pitch Contest
This is an "all-in-one" solution for Japanese companies who have market data but don't know how to sell to the US market.
You will join a idea competition along with another agency and pitch your promotion idea to our client! You will get paid for your pitch!
This is a solution for Japanese companies who already have market data, have their own strategy, and only need to have team members. As a bilingual project manager, we step between the client and the agency to manage the progress of the project.
FC consultant conducts a hearing session with the Japanese client to understand their market research information including target audience, products, business goals, needs, budgets, and the current business situation.
After carefully understanding some key data and the goal of the promotional campaign, we will speak to two partner companies that meet their required conditions. We then check whether the agencies can participate in the competition.
Participating companies will be given a two-week period to prepare their ideas. And two weeks later at all parties (the client, agency, ForeignConnect) will have a one hour pitch meeting.
The client receives the pitch, picks the idea that they like, and we contact the agency. The client will start working with the chosen agency. The agency who was not picked is also paid for their time.
