1. For Rodan and Fields, Japan
Rodan + Fields did for a Japan market entry strategy because it chooses not to mimic success in other established markets in the USA, Canada, and Australia.
That’s like trying to build an Ice Hotel in Central Australia: totally inappropriate and likely to vanish into the background. Rodan + Fields – took time, actually 5 years, to understand what the winning companies have done over many years to be successful, and then adapted the Market Entry plan to reflect what they have learned.
Rodan + Fields learned in the past 5 years that Japanese Woman + Men are willing to purchase the best skincare they can afford; they look for efficacious solutions and love to work with regimens. Rodan + Fields use Social Network Services to grow communities and sales.
