  11. Product Attributes and Benefit Segmentation • Different cultures usually agree on the benefit of the primary function of a product or service • Other features and psychological attributes of the item can have significant differences • Cars • Breakfast cereal • Blue Diamond (Assumes that no two markets will react the same) • Each has its own set of differences • Each will require a different marketing approach and strategy

  12. Regional Segmentation • Pan-European communications media highlights need for more standardized promotional efforts • Costs savings with a common theme in uniform promotional packaging and design • Legal restrictions slowly being eliminated

  13. Global Advertising and the Communications Process • If not properly considered, different cultural contexts can increase the probability of misunderstandings • Effective communication • Demands the existence of a “psychological overlap” between the sender and the receiver to avoid transmission of message that results in unattended meaning. • It can never be assumed that “if it sells well in one country, it will sell in another” (Disney)

  15. Legal Constraints • Comparative advertising • Advertising of specific products • Control of advertising on television • Accessibility to broadcast media • Limitations on length and number of commercials • Internet services • Special taxes that apply to advertising

  16. Linguistic Limitations • Language is one of the major barriers to effective communication through advertising • Translation challenges • Low literacy in many countries • Multiple languages within a country • In-country testing with the target consumer group avoids problems caused by linguistic differences

  17. Cultural Diversity • Knowledge of cultural diversity must encompass the total advertising project • Existing perceptions based on tradition and heritages are often hard to overcome • Subcultures (different patterns of breakfast eating) • Changing traditions

  18. Media Limitations and Production and Cost Limitations • Media limitations may diminish the role of advertising in the promotional program • Examples of production limitations: • Poor-quality printing • Lack of high-grade paper • In Egypt, static-filled television and poor-quality billboards have led companies such as Coca-Cola and Nestlé to place their advertisements on the sails of boats that sail along the Nile. • Low-cost reproduction in small markets poses a problem in many countries. • For example, hand-painted billboards must be used instead of printed sheets because the limited number of billboards does not warrant the production of printed sheets

  19. Media Planning and Analysis – Tactical Considerations • Availability (too few vs. too many) • Cost (cost per contact varies widely) • Coverage (difficulty of reaching certain sector) • Lack of market data
