11 Copyright © Realia All rights reserved. Some things we know to be true The European Passion Study 2010 revealed... Apple evokes the most passion amongst Europeans! But local brands also do very well... Douwe Egberts (coffee) generates the most passion in the Netherlands Bauli (cakes) in Italy In the German speaking area Milka (chocolate) is favourite Arla (dairy products) in Scandinavia In the UK, true British brands such as Cadbury's, Marmite and Sainsbury's are positioned high in the local top 10 Local traditions are greatly appreciated - each country is generally proud of their local habits

13 Copyright © Realia All rights reserved. Key marketing considerations What are the core competencies of the business? Do you have something to sell? And to who? What are your marketing objectives? Are they awareness or response driven? The real size of the opportunity The nature and mindset of the target audience What is the single minded proposition? Why should people believe you? The nature of the competitive environment How much can you spend and how will you measure success?

14 Copyright © Realia All rights reserved. International branding considerations Does the brand or product/service name have any negative connotations or inappropriate cultural associations? This check should cover local slang terms/language Is there any difficulty with pronunciation? Are there any negative cultural associations that may affect the use of the name? Does the name have relevance to the category in which it will operate? Or is it inappropriate for cultural/other social/linguistic reasons?

15 Copyright © Realia All rights reserved. International branding considerations Does the name make your target market think about something in particular? If so, what? Does this name sound like something else to them? If so, what? Are there any other brand names that are/or sound close to your name, or which could cause confusion with your name? Is it easy to remember? Is it easy to type/write?

16 Copyright © Realia All rights reserved. International marketing considerations LE PEST C What is the real size of the opportunity? What is the nature and mindset of the target audience? You need a robust and repeatable understanding of local drivers and shopping behaviours on the ground What is the nature of the competitive environment? How much can you spend and how will you measure success? Can you really be local? How do you overcome nationalist preferences/loyalties?

17 Copyright © Realia All rights reserved. International marketing considerations Dont assume knowledge, understanding or culture There are many commonalities across Europe, but there are also important differences, particularly cultural The English copy style can be incredibly colloquial and does not necessarily translate easily or accurately Be sure to use copy that is single minded, simple to understand and immediately obvious The Dutch are particularly direct! Be sure to also understand use of photography and graphic style A photo of a German street name or a car with a UK licence plate will not go down well in France

18 Copyright © Realia All rights reserved. How it can go wrong In Italy, a campaign for Schweppes Tonic Water translated the name into Schweppes Toilet Water After Ford introduced the Pinto in Brazil they learned that Pinto is Brazilian slang for tiny male genitals When Parker Pen advertised in Mexico, its ad was supposed to say It won't leak in your pocket and embarrass you Instead it said It won't leak in your pocket and make you pregnant Coors translated its slogan Turn It Loose into Spanish, where it was read as Suffer From Diarrhoea.
