Nihongogo is looking for Contributors.. so pass this message on!
If you like Japanese Culture and want to write editorials, reviews, news updates or satire.. we’re looking for you! It’s not just AKB48, Miku Hatsune or K-On!, it’s anything about Japan! Video Games, Technology, Television, Movies, J-Pop, R&B, Concerts, Breaking News Updates,Tourism and much more!
Run your own website or blog? Don’t worry. Re-Post or Simulpost what you’ve already created and use Nihongogo as a springboard to link back to your website! Nihongogo will proudly endorse you and your website as a Contributing Partner.
What is the purpose of Nihongogo though? Why should I contribute?
You will be contributing to the greater good. My professional job is Marketing and I have a lot of contacts in the press industry already. I see what websites like The Verge, Huffington Post and Engadget do.. and I want to do this for Japanese Entertainment. So that ALL of us can find a place to find the the REST of us.
You want to write a synopsis about the latest AKBingo for the benefit of those of us who couldn’t watch it? You want to make a review about the AKB1/48 Video Game? You want to share your thoughts about the latest NMB48 single?
Any Subject, From Any One, Any Where, is accepted.
Let’s all work together. You. Me. Whatever websites you run. Whatever websites your friends run. Every single person who is a fan of Japan is wanted. I don’t care if you’re Stage48, Ebi48, Hello! Online, JPHIP, New School Kaidan, Selective Hearing, JpopMusic, EVERYONE.
I know how to drum up media support, and I’ve done it before.
I’ve gotten an EXCLUSIVE interview with AKB48 in LA, I’ve gotten people EXCLUSIVE interviews with AKB48 in Singapore not just once but twice, I’ve gotten Press Passes to AKB48’s Washington Concert but I can’t be everywhere at once.
I KNOW you like things I don’t, I KNOW you all have different thoughts and fandoms, that’s why I can’t do this alone. Even if I wanted to like everything, I can’t travel everywhere. If you join me, what you’ll be doing is connecting with me for the ability for Nihongogo to get you that press accreditation so you can go to events, conventions, or concerts with a press pass (which are free) and write about your experiences for the greater good of Japanese Entertainment. You’ll be given exclusive rights to interviews, photography and every single exhibitor will be on their best behavior around you.. you’d be a member of the media after all.
I know it sounds cocky, but why the Nihongogo brand? I’ve already built relationships with this website. My brand name is better. It sounds professional. That’s pretty much the deal here. Being professional goes a long way. See.. if I can UNITE us.. I can bring traffic in. I can provide the numbers. I can provide the evidence. I have the clout. I have professional contacts with USA Today, Rolling Stone, Huffington Post, Newsday, New York Times, Sony, and more. The more hits Nihongogo can get, the more demanding I can be. The more I can do for you.
So let me tell you about the future.
I want you guys to be at concerts with me, I want you guys to get interviews with your favorite musical acts, I want you guys to get those amazing photos you’ve seen me take for Nihongogo. I want you on my side.
How can I do that though?
I can’t be everywhere at once and that’s where YOU come in. If you like writing, taking pictures, talking about Japanese stuff… NOT JUST AKB48 OR JPOP… sign up with me. Begin writing. If you already have a website? Great. Join up as a partner, copy paste, and work with me. I’m not trying to steal your content, I just want all our websites to be on the same level.
You can post the exact same articles on Nihongogo and post it on your own website, you can link back to your website, you can post affiliate codes or adverts in your articles here at Nihongogo.. I don’t CARE. What YOU do, YOU deserve compensation for. I’m not here to steal your money or lay claim to your work. When websites partner up.. we all benefit.
The larger website creates a trickle-down effect… a small website partnering with a larger website goes a long way. It will get you more hits, it will get you more credibility. It will authenticate you and your website as part of the professional media. My website will be this hub.
If you create content I want a piece of it. Why? I just want clicks. I want more visitors. You get more visitors, I get more visitors. Easy Peasy.
I just want those delicious clicks.
Those clicks give me more credibility within the media to do more to DEMAND more. I can affect J-Pop in America or anywhere in the world if I can get enough clicks. THAT IS MY PLAN. That is why the Huffington Post writers and contributors can get on TV and be interviewed, because they are seen as an influencer and news source as legitimate as any other.
I can’t be everywhere at once. This is where YOU COME IN.
You want to go to the Tokyo Game Show? I’ll get you there.
You wanna go to the San Diego Comic Con? I’ll get you there.
Some Anime Fest? I’ll get you there.
Otakon? I’ll get you there.
Some other stupid convention you want to cover? I’ll get you there.
All I want is YOU doing what you’d normally do with your BLOG or WEBSITE anyway.
So what do you wanna do?
Write an editorial? Talk about video games? Toys? Perfume? Idoling? Write a funny piece? Review shows? Review music? Show off photos? Post videos?
Let’s go forward together.
