Japanese Web/Mobile Site
Once you start trying to sell music, you become a "business". Not many artists or record labels can afford to have a physical shop or office in Japan to conduct business, so your Japanese web/mobile site is essential in reaching the largest music market in the world.
Over 80% of all digital music sold in Japan is purchased from mobile phones. QR Codes help connect the millions of Japanese mobile users to your site.
Give Japanese music consumers and industry people one convenient place where they can learn about you, listen to your music, watch your videos, buy your music, and follow you on their favorite devices in their own language. Click here to create a Japanese web/mobile site and start promoting your music in Japan.
A Japanese web/mobile site is required if you are doing any advertising/promotion in Japanese media including Google Japan and its vast network of Japanese publishers. Distributors, shops, concert promoters, bloggers, and most importantly, your Japanese music fans, will appreciate it.

In Japan, where mobile devices are used more often to discover, buy, download, and listen to music than computers, having a mobile site is the norm for indie and major label artists.
QR Codes are square barcodes (QR stands for Quick Response) which when scanned by a mobile phone camera can open your mobile site, iTunes, Amazon, YouTube, or other URL. Many print ads, magazines, newspapers, websites, packaging, flyers, billboards, signs, business cards, t-shirts, posters, and even the sides of buses and buildings have a QR Code on them. To learn more about using QR Codes and to create your own QR Codes for free, visit QRickit.com. QR Codes (a.k.a. QRickits) are a great mobile marketing tool for bands!
