Key Benefits of Having a Global Marketing Strategy

Businesses around the world are expanding their operations on a global level. This means that core functions like marketing should be backed by a global marketing strategy that are tailor-made to suit different regional cultures and preferences.  A global marketing concept involves the use of new elements in a company’s marketing strategy such as changes in packaging and advertising that are designed to resonate with the local audience across various geographies. However, some elements such as the company logo remain standardized. A global marketing strategy is a component of a company’s global strategy and it encompasses all functional aspects of a business ranging from finance to operations to R&D.

Benefits of a global marketing strategy

If done right, a global marketing strategy can have many benefits for an organization. Start with open and honest conversations about where the company is going. This can help you create a global marketing strategy, build collective commitment, and is one of the many secrets to running a successful and enduring global enterprise. Experts at Infiniti Research have highlighted four key advantages that businesses can gain by adopting a global marketing strategy.

Better product and service effectiveness

The more companies grow, their learning must keep pace simultaneously in order to be effective in rolling out a new and improved product or service offerings. Take the example of Facebook for instance. Once the company’s IPO turned out to be a remarkable success in the North American market, their next target region for expansion was India. Studies revealed that internet advertising made up for only less than five per cent in India’s advertising market, compared to North America’s which was close to twenty per cent. Facebook had to improve on their already existing North American strategy to monetize all the users in India in terms of its revenue base and develop its global marketing strategy in India.

Stronger competitive advantage

Although some companies may be natural at competing in a local market, this may not be the case when they are competing with global players in international markets. A brand with a strong global marketing strategy can achieve this, provided the strategy is targeted at the right audience and is well communicated. It also allows for a better-informed and more focused organization as a whole worldwide. Further, it allows companies to adapt quickly wherever needed and keep up with customer demands or other global marketing trends.

Greater customer awareness

The internet plays a great role in keeping customers around the world connected to their favorite brands. They can track the progress of a brand and their products constantly, helping companies to keep their customers posted on their latest innovations in products or services. A global marketing strategy can help companies identify different elements that can capture the attention of different audiences. They can also promote the “WOW” factor in their offerings through a global marketing strategy that consequently increases customer awareness.

Cost reduction and savings

Economies of scale and scope through standardization can be achieved by focusing on new markets. Furthermore, customers from all corners of the world can find brand using the internet, and they can reach potential customers with one single point of contact such as a website, blog or a Facebook page. The cost savings can help businesses serve customers better worldwide.

Marketing Strategies for Expanding Your Business into Europe: Key factors to consider

Since 2014, there has been a tremendous marketing transformation in Europe. Amidst this, marketers are having a tough time perfecting their content marketing strategies to engage European customers.

What is a marketing strategy?

marketing strategies

Marketing strategies combine a company’s marketing goals into a comprehensive plan to achieve them. Effective marketing strategies should include market research and focus on the right product mix in order to maximize profit potential. Top companies around the globe have realized the importance of marketing strategies in identifying the best customers and understanding their needs. Moreover, it also helps businesses gain a competitive advantage over their rivals in the industry.

Creating a marketing strategies for the European market

Understand the customers

It is often observed that B2C companies are ahead of the curve when compared to B2B companies in exercising effective marketing strategies, especially on social platforms. However, considering the fact that today both customers and businesses have an active presence on online channels, B2B companies must also lay more emphasis on enhancing their marketing strategies. Furthermore, European customers are known to be highly dependent on digital devices either to make a purchase or research about a product/service that they are interested in. So, companies must begin by creating content that their target audience is searching for. This can be done by gaining insights from the sales and customer service teams about what makes customers dissatisfied. Companies can also set up a social media monitoring dashboard to better monitor keywords, interests, and brand mentions.

Create a targeted approach

Modern companies must not overlook the fragmented distribution ecosystem, rather they must create a highly targeted and specific approach for each channel. In the US, for instance, companies have already understood the importance of this and are implementing more targeted marketing strategies when compared to their European counterparts. In this era of immersive content, companies in Europe must look at ways that they can enhance their marketing efforts by enhancing user experience through the use of advanced technology.

Understand the nature of market

Certain marketing strategies often do not work as well in Europe as it does in countries like the U.S. Furthermore, one marketing strategy may not be effective across different countries in Europe. Marketers need to understand Europe is not a homogenous market. One of the key challenges here for companies is to understand the local language, the market maturity and the buyer behavior of Europeans. In most cases, highly localized content and marketing strategies that are suited to specific regions in Europe prove to more effective. European marketers sometimes make the mistake of creating and rolling out the same content across Europe without adapting their content to the specific target market and buyers in the specific countries. The best marketing strategies are those that adapt to the changing needs of customers. For instance, a buyer of office furniture looks at office furniture differently when compared to a customer for the same product in the Netherlands or the UK.

Marketing automation

One of the biggest differences between the marketing strategies used in the US and Europe is that in the US, companies are looking at how marketing automation rapidly steps up to the next level such as machine learning and AI. The EU market, on the other hand, is playing catch-up on this front, and the gap between adoption and the technical offering is getting larger.
