Japanese users, please help us spread to word about avast
« on: May 06, 2010, 12:25:55 AM »
Hi,

if you're Japanese, we'd like to ask you a favor. Could you please post the list of your favorite IT blogs / magazines / news servers in Japan? We'd like to talk to the people behind them to tell them our story...

Thanks much

Hi Vlk,

Maybe our Japanese evangelists can translate the above message in Japanese, so the Japanese search engines may find it,

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

Hello,

I've noticed that the Japanesse people are often on Yahoo and hence I'm guessing that a good portition of them go to the technology section. Anyhow, what's for sure is that if you can get something on the Japanesse Yahoo page it will most certainly get enormous exposure.

Just a thought...

I agree.

Though Google is robbing Yahoo! Japan of its share recently, Yahoo is still the most famous portal site in Japan.
Some IT news-providers I posted before offer its article to Yahoo! Japan, so I think that articles appearing on them can also appear on Yahoo's daily-news headline.

Hi
I am a Philippine based Japanese who have been appreciating to Avast! for more than two years.
I would like to post a site below called "Kuchikomi Ranking" means "ranking by word of mouth".

Kuchikomi Ranking (クチコミランキング):
http://kuchiran.jp/pc/security.html

This information may not serve Vik as he expected but I just want to let everyone who loves Avast! know the posision of Avast! in my home country.
Unfortunately, the Avast! is underrated only due to its less recognition of the name.
In fact, in the site I posted above, they are still talking about Avast! 4 even after the month after the Avast! 5 was released.

Fellows in Japan, please put the name of Avast! on your mouth.
日本の皆様、アバスト!の名を広めましょう。

I hope that the name of the Avast! 5 will be spread soon.

Thank you for the info.  ESET and Kaspersky are internationally popular even among frequent security site lurkers and I'm not surprised by the popularity of Trend Micro and Norton considering their marketing.  What surprised me is Biglobe, which is, actually, an ISP although I know they traditionally offer their users good security tools.

Even to my eyes, Japanese tend to be suspicious of "free" products.  However, judging from their valuing Kaspersky and the tools of Biglobe, they must be far from being blind.  I hope Alwil will make them realize that there are "free" and competent products.  Unfortunately or fortunately, I think the same thing to some of their rival companies, though.

Actually the Japanesse tend  to think that a free/ not so expensive product is one that is not of good quality. So as far as the free version of Avast is concerned I don't think that there are things that can be done, however I think that there  are things that can be done in order to boost the paid product's sales such as an ad campaign on yahoo...

There are two proverbs in Japan.
"There is no such thing as a free lunch" or "Free is the most expensive". (ただより高いものは無い)
"A cheap purchase is money lost" (安物買いの銭失い)
It's a way of thinking in Japan... especially important / essential things (including security software).


However, there is also wishful tendency.
Now the share of K7 Anti-virus (appearing in Kuchikomi Ranking as "Virus Security Zero", which pushes "Paid once, no additional yearly charge") is growing significantly.

Considering this, it seems there is much room for growing free (or low price) product... problems are prejudice against free product (is less powerful than paid one) and its publicity (IMHO, quite a few Japanese internet users don't know even there is free anti-virus product).

Yeah, I know avast is a very good product (both free and paid), and pay for avast is not money lost ;)
Proverbs are, of course, at best a general argument; we also know we can get many good software for free / low price 8)
