CyberAgent yesterday announced it has set up the so-called “International Mobile Marketing Division” that aims at providing “overseas companies with smartphone and mobile promotion opportunities in Japan”. The devil is in the details, but given that this country is a black box for many foreign mobile companies, the idea – coming from a major local web company – makes a lot of sense.
CyberAgent says that they can support future clients in three ways, namely through access to:
- AMoAd, the “leading ad network” on Ameba and Mobage (set up by CyberAgent and DeNA in April this year)
- FreeAppNow, an iOS recommendation app with 500,000 users (made by CyberAgent)
- CA Reward, a local advertisement service with over 2 million DAU
