CHAPTER I 1 W V Why do companies go International To expand their sales increase pro t To acquire resources To diversify their sources of sales and suppliers Global Marketing Communication Tools Personal Selling It s persontoperson communication in which a seller informs and educates prospective customers and attempts to in uence their purchase choice Public Relations Publicity as PR tool Publicity like advertising is non personal communication to a mass audience but unlike advertising publicity is not directly paid for by the company that oys the publicity Sales Promotions Consists of all marketing activities that attempt to stimulate quick buyer action or in other words attempt to promote immediate sales of a product thereby yielding the name sales promotions Consumeroriented sales promotions include coupons free samples rebates Sponsorship Marketing Is the practice of promoting the interest of a company and its brands by associating the company with a speci c event eg golf tournament or a charitable cause eg the leukemia society Advertising Is nonpersonal communication It is paid for by an identi ed sponsor Involves either mass communication or direct toconsumer communication Mass media via newspaper magazine radio television and other media billboard bus stop signage Direct to consumer communication via postal or electronic mail The globalization of Markets Global Market The globalization of Markets Refers to the merging of historical distinct and separate national markets into one huge global marketplace Market Oriented Vs Product Oriented lVIarket Orientation Make what we can Sell market oriented rm s relationship with its 3 V customer is a reciprocal twoway relationship b Seek our customer needs and wants and then develop and provide products that satisfy U 0 V previously identi ed or anticipated shortages and desires Many global advertising are not market oriented i They search for one standard product to assumed universal global consumers ii Although in the end it seems that adaptations are needed Product Orientation If we build it they will come Good product will sell themselves d 6 Business that adopt a product orientation are most successful when demand exceeds supply and competitive pressure are few Many global advertising are product oriented Identify the Marketing Communication paradoxes in particular the advertising paradoxes Value Paradox Paradoxes are statements that seem contradictory but that are actually true Value paradoxes are found in the opposing values in value systems such as freedom beloging traditioninnovation orderchaos Paradoxical values are found within cultures and between cultures Global Local Paradox Example People worldwide drinking CocaCola or wearing jeans may result in thinking they are becoming the same but there is evidence that to consumers the local is more meaningful than the global In the US 93 of music sold was by local artists In Japan it was 74 and across Europe over 50 Technological Paradox Technological development is increasing global but the argument that technological development makes us global and lead to similar needs for similar product is not correct There is a great variety in adoption of technological innovation and usage of technological products The Media Paradox Pro grammin g The growing number of satellite is suppose to create a global village in which anybody can receive any TV channel This is theory In reality there is no viewers 39eedom Increasingly local cable companies are deciding what local viewers will see usually local programs A satellite dish is no solution as a variety of techniques and coding system across countries makes it virtually impossible to receive what is available 6 Identify the paradoxes in marketing theory The concept of marketing and many theories of Consumer Behavior with respect to consumption buying and communication originated in the US and have been copied and used by teachers in many other countries There is little evidence of meaningful adaptations of these theories to other countries As a results numerous students of marketing and advertising have learned marketing practices and theory that re ect American values and thinking patterns that may not always t well in their own environment Sales Promotions and Bargaining Theory Susceptibility to bargains and promotions will cause feelings of excitement of finding a bargain or a promotion which will eventually trigger compelling urge to use these promotions and to buy more Global Markets The current consensus is that although the world is moving towards global markets the continuing persistence of cultural and economic differences among nations acts as a major brake on any trend toward global consumer tastes and preferences Local Markets are People Global Markets are Products Market are people not products There may be global products but there are not global people There may be global brands but there are no global motivations for buying those brands Examples The sony walkman Ipods Many advertisers think that one standard message is suf cient7 This is a paradoxical behavior Local Markets are People Global Markets are Products In addition trade barriers and differences in product and technical standards also constrain a rm39s ability to sell a standardized product to a global market a corporate culture than with the culture of markets and nations Think about Market oriented vs product oriented Market Orientation lVIake what we can Sell market oriented rm s relationship with its customer is a reciprocal twoway relationship Seek our customer needs and wants and then develop and provide products that satisfy previously identi ed or anticipated shortages and desires Many global advertising are not market oriented The decision to standardize has more to do with They search for one standard product to assumed universal global consumers Although in the end it seems that adaptations are needed Product Orientation If we build it they will come Good product will sell themselves Business that adopt a product orientation are most successful when demand exceeds supply and competitive pressure are few Many global advertising are product oriented The Universal and the Particular Marketing and advertising textbooks generally draw from social science psychology sociology and economics Theories are generally presented as universal and do not differentiate for the particularities of other countries Motivational segmentation theory In reality only a few global brands most re ect culture of home country coca cola mc donalds Focus on a Unique Individual Theories of buying behavior decision making and communication behavior generally describes individuals of western societies who are de ned as unique personalities Modern branding theories was developed in the US and UK and uses concepts from Western psychology Metaphors such as brand identity and brand personality are exported to countries in which words like identity and brand personality do not exist in the local languages ie Asia The Paradoxes in Consumer Trends Many of what is presented as consumer trends to be exploited in marketing are based on paradoxes Hedonism as a trend with respect to food can never be a global trend It is related to what the individual should do versus actually does do with respect to food What is desirable or desired with respect to food and health varies by culture Example In France and Spain food is more an element of social and family life 7 Research Paradox For a long time international advertising agencies in the US have thought that emotional or feeling appeals would travel better than 1hinking appeals because of the universal of human values Thus much standardized international advertising has included appeals like happiness and love a European companies focus more on innovative product attributes that communicated in a culturally relevant way It is paradoxical that global advertising prefer to develope what is universal instead of what should appeal to speci c people in particular Effective advertising needs a shared culture Common assumption are that an advertisement will be effective if the viewers or reader decodes the advertisement successfully there is a meaningful transfer of properties Receiver of the message must use the same conventions to evaluate the stimulus in order to be able t o formulate the response Thus developing one single idea for the whole world or one global stimulus only happen if sender and receiver share one culture The effectiveness of a rm39s intemational communication can be jeopardized by Cultural barriers Source and country of origin effects Noise levels competitors Effective advertising needs a shared culture For cost ef ciency reasons companies prefer to standardized products and advertising However products may be similar but usage and buying motives vary for most products Example Levi39s jeans How advertising works There are continues discussion among researcher across countries about how advertising works Because the US has a longer research history than other countries its methods and styles are often used in cross cultural advertising research Research Paradox By de nition value and lifestyle research is cultural bound yet studies based on the value pattern of one culture are indiscriminately exported to other culture Value and lifestyle studies developed in the US are exported to other cultures For example Belgian value studies have been sold to the Netherlands although the value system of these markets are very different General nding of cross cultural studies are that advertising styles vary widely across nations but very few studies explain why When testing advertising companies try to economize by selecting one or two countries in an area like Europe or Latin America 6 V Conclusion One can act globally and that is what companies do When they globalize they produce and distribute globally For global communication however thinking must be local to be effective it must focus on the particular not on the universal CHAPTER 2 1 Brand de nition benefits and factors Trade mar Site to produce uniqueness Proprietary visual emotional rational image associated with a company or product Intangible asset that produces added bene ts

all countries Comparable distribution intensity Comparable brand loyalty Visual dominance 4 Perception of global brands by consumers Quality Assurance A universal function of a brand for customer is quality assurance As value however quality assurance is of varying importance in different cultures Brand Loyalty These values are conveyed by marketing communication The brand owner has the opportunity to control the meaning the brand has for people Country of Origin A global brand has originated in a particular country In some cases in spite of being a global it is associated with that nation This can be beneficial if the image of the country remain constant In case of change both upgrading will in uence the brand39s image and acceptance Examples Japan from shoddy to high quality The American values have become ambiguous for some they are positive for other s negative Nationalism Product Familiarity Global or local the importance of global image varies by culture and product category Successful global brands can be perceived as M in certain countries for example Nivea a brand of Beiersdof in Germany or Colgate which originated in the United State If a brand has been part of the family for generations it has become ingrained in people39s lives Most strong global brand are old The Colgate company began in 1806 Nivea originated in 1911 and Clorox in 1913 Brand s values Same as three above Brand types 1 Single product brand or monobrands An exclusive name is assigned to only one product The brand 39s main purpose is to add value to the product The vast majority of existing brands were developed as single productbrand that were built to position products within national boundaries Range brands or line brands A group of product is ranged under one name under one promise or positioning The purpose is to give a product a place in a range of other products An advantage is that products can share brand awareness and meaning Umbrella brands or corporate brands A group of product is ranged under one name under one promise or positioning The name can be the company name or an umbrella brand name The corporate name can be used as an endorsement to indicate the source U V 0 V N W 7 Brand strategies 1 Cultivate established local brands a Develop national brand into international brand CocaCola 2 Global concept local adaptations b One concept local products
