Japanese Research - Identify Social Leaders

OBJECTIVE: Research the Japanese internet, in the Japanese language, and find 25 Japanese social leaders in translation, TEFL, TOEIC, editing, English, and related areas, especially related to entrepreneurship, marketing, and business if possible.

//What is a “social leader”?//

I define this as a person or small team who command a loyal following with their online activities. They have at least 5,000 followers on Twitter, 2,000 likes on Facebook, YouTube videos with at least 20,000 views,

For the sake of this project, they must be in Japan, be Japanese (not foreigners), and communicate in Japanese with Japanese followers. Even better if they appeal to Japanese business and professionals rather than students and casual learners, since businesses are my target market.

I need a list of at least 25 community leaders. This must include at least 5 each from Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube, and the rest from blogs and other sources.

1) Name (real and/or online name)

2) Contact information (as much as possible - FB, e-mail, Twitter acct., etc.)

3) Social media used (all platforms and links)

4) Topic(s) covered

5) Audience (approximate number of followers, etc. on each platform)

6) Other relevant information about them


I run an editing/translation company and I am seeking to get the word out to increase the amount of followers to my site, blog, Facebook page, and Twitter account. Ultimately I want to generate paying business clients to use my services. If I am interested in you as a bidder, I will send you more specific information.


You MUST have the following requirements:

-Native Japanese (it’s OK if you don’t live in Japan)

-Sufficient English ability (doesn’t have to be perfect - I speak intermediate Japanese, and you can include Japanese in the report)

-NO bidders for whom Japanese is a second language - don’t waste my time and yours


This job will lead to part two, which is creating an appeal message and contacting these leaders on my behalf. You’ll serve as my virtual assistant and work to spread the word - via Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, mixi, gree, blog, and other SNS forums - about my terrific service through social media.

This is a FUN job and will both expose you to a lot of interesting content and could lead to at least one more job in the future.


I will pay up to $50 for this.
