Expanding your business internationally can be an exciting step for any entrepreneur, but marketing your product or service abroad requires adequate research and preparation. Sending the wrong message can not only discourage consumers from buying your product but could lead them to boycott your business altogether.
If you are taking your brand global, there are a few tips you can take to avoid international marketing fails.
#1 Adapt to Local Market
Do thorough research into the target market and get a better understanding of what local customers need rather than what products or services you offer. This is why you can buy a chicken roll in China or find pasta dishes on the McDonald’s menu in Italy. So adapt your products or service to better serve local customers
#2 Localize Your Online Presence
Traditional marketing such as TV, radio, and print advertising is naturally tailored to each target market. You should learn all those local channels and platforms (social media, forums, search engines) and find the most suitable for your business.
Besides customers who access foreign language websites still prefer the websites written in their own native language. To localize your website and social media presence to boost your brand.
#3 Being Mobile Friendly
