Influencer commerce with exclusive Japanese product in Southeast Asia
The E-Commerce market is growing rapidly in Southeast Asia, partly due to the impact of COVID-19. This is due in part to the fact that many people have started their businesses online as corona has reduced job opportunities.
With the vision of “Empower the Next Billion”, YOYO aims to provide diverse opportunities to the people in emerging countries. Our one of the solutions, the micro-influencer platform “PopStar”, has more than 250,000 registered influencers and more than 500 million followers, maximizing profit opportunities using social media for local creators.
From this year, PopStar influencers have started live commerce through social media and EC sites. Through live commerce, some micro-influencers have already sold hundreds of thousands of yen monthly even it is their first time to run live streaming.
To provide micro-influencers in Southeast Asia with further profit opportunities, YOYO will promote opportunities to live-sell unique Japanese products that cannot be purchased locally. Through Shopan, PopStar influencers will be able to sell in live commerce to their fans, and by introducing the attractiveness of Japanese products to the Philippines, YOYO will support the fundraising for Japanese innovators as well.
