Packed with cultural, company, and country examples, this book offers a mix of theory and practical applications covering globalization, global branding strategies, classification models of culture, and the consequences of culture for all aspects of marketing communications.
The author helps define cross cultural segments to better target consumers across cultures and features content on how culture affects strategic issues, such as the company's mission statement, brand positioning strategy, and marketing communications strategy. It also demonstrates the centrality of value paradoxes to cross cultural marketing communications, and uses the Hofstede model or other cultural models to help readers see why strategies based on cultural relationships in one country cannot be extended to other countries without adjustments.
Updates to the new edition include:
- Up-to-date research on new topics, including: culture and the media, culture and the Internet, and a more profound comparison of the different cultural models. Includes discussion of how Covid-19 has impacted globalization.
