    Intercultural Management is one of the most important and difficult aspects of international marketing. The exporter negotiates with individuals from countries with very different cultures and habits.

  • ITS-01-EMO-004 – Segmentation

    Online Course | eBSI Export Academy

    Without doubt it would be ideal for a company to offer a personalised product to each of its clients. As this is virtually impossible; we need to look for ways to offer products that are personalised for different groups or segments of the market. Todays markets are more volatile than before and possibly the traditional mass media advertising focus is no longer appropriate. One option is to target different niches of market where we have the resources to satisfy that niches needs and wants. This is possible with Market Segmentation. That is; dividing the market into groups of potential clients with similar needs and profiles which possess similar buying habits.In this unit; you will learn about market segmentation and its importance to international marketing.

  • ITS-01-EMO-005 – Country Image

    Online Course | eBSI Export Academy

    The influence of country image on export transactions is a very significant piece of information which should be taken into account by the exporter. The image of a country in a foreign market depends on many factors; among them being foreign policy; and of course; trade promotional policy; carried out by governments in order to improve this image. The exporter should find out how his own country image is portrayed in the target market. If this image is positive; the most logical thing would be to use this image in the exporters favour in marketing plans. If the image is negative; then we need to use the marketing mix to draw the importer or consumer’s attention towards other variables of marketing. In this unit you will learn about the influence of a country’s image on its perception in export markets. This will be achieved by: Examining what is a country’s international image; Analysing how we can use our country image to promote export sales; Detailing the factors which influence a country’s image abroad.

  • ITS-01-EMO-006 – International Pricing Policy

    Online Course | eBSI Export Academy

    One of the most complicated aspects of foreign trade is pricing policy. An incorrect pricing policy can lead to total failure in international markets. First of all we should find out about prices in various international markets; this information will allow us to have some real criteria for setting our export prices. However; we will meet the familiar dilemma of global or local prices.From another point of view the price is attached to the selected Incoterms; in the more competitive markets it is habitual to deliver product to client’s premises; thereby offering DDP prices. In some countries this is impossible; and it will cause us problems. One of the solutions can be if we have FOB Global prices and then we will be able to adapt them to each market according to the costs of this market.In this unit you will learn the importance of an appropriate pricing strategy when entering new export markets.This will be achieved by : Examining the pricing options available to the exporter; Outlining the criteria to be used when establishing a pricing strategy; Analysing the goals of a pricing policy; Detailing how to arrive at an export price. – Introducing the criteria defined in pricing under Incoterms 2010.

  • ITS-01-EMO-007 – International Product Policy

    Online Course | eBSI Export Academy

    The first thing that an exporting company should ask itself is whether the product is exportable. A product which is successful in the home market; will not always be as successful in other markets. Remember; although globalisation is a reality; each market is different in its own way. Therefore; only through market research will we find out if our product is viable or not. Furthermore; we should look at what types of modifications we should carry out on the products in preparation for different markets.Finally we should remember the lifelong question: is it a global product or will we have to localise it for each market?
