  15. Alternative Market-Entry Strategies • Companies most often begin with modest export involvement • A company has four different modes of foreign market entry • Exporting • Contractual agreements • Strategic alliances • Direct foreign investments

  16. Exporting • Exporting accounts for some 10% of global activity • Direct exporting – the company sells to a customer in another country • Indirect exporting – the company sells to a buyer (importer or distribution) in the home country, who in turn exports the product • Customers include Wal-Mart and Sears

  17. Exporting • The Internet • Initially, Internet marketing focused on domestic sales • A surprisingly large number of companies started receiving orders from customers in other countries, • Resulting in the concept of international Internet marketing (IIM) • Direct sales • Particularly for high technology and big ticket industrial products

Franchiser provides a standard package of products, systems, and management services • Franchise provides market knowledge, capital, and personal involvement in management • Expected to be the fastest-growing market-entry strategy as it provides an attractive form of corporate organization for companies wishing to expand quickly with low capital investment. • (e.g., KFC, McDonalds)

  20. Strategic International Alliances • A strategic international alliance (SIA) • A business relationship established by two or more companies to cooperate out of mutual need • To share risk in achieving a common objective • SIAs are sought as a way to shore up weaknesses and increase competitive strengths • Firms enter SIAs for several reasons • Opportunities for rapid expansion into new markets • Access to new technology • More efficient production and innovation • Reduced marketing costs • Strategic competitive moves • Access to additional sources of products and capital • (e.g., in airline industry One world Alliance consists of British Airways, Japan Airlines etc.)

Strategic International Alliances • International joint ventures (IJVs) • A partnership of two or more participating companies that have joined forces to create a separate legal entity • (e.g., merge with foreign company in order to gain better access in the new market) • Consortia • Similar to joint ventures and could be classified as such except for two unique characteristics • Typically involve a large number of participants • Frequently operate in a country or market in which none of the participants is currently active

  22. Direct Foreign Investment • Factors that influence the structure and performance of direct investments • Timing • The growing complexity and contingencies of contracts • Transaction cost structures • Technology transfer • Degree of product differentiation • The previous experiences and cultural diversity of acquired firms • Advertising and reputation barriers

  23. Organizing for Global Competition • Devising a standard organizational structure is difficult • Because organizations need to reflect a wide range of company-specific characteristics • Companies are usually structured around one of three alternatives • Global product divisions responsible for product sales throughout world • Geographical divisions responsible for all products and functions within a given geographical area • A matrix organization consisting of either of these arrangements • With centralized sales and marketing run by a centralized functional staff, or a combination of area operations and global product management
