Could use an interactive DVD and send it to foreign clients who don’t speak English. Not only will the IMMP have features including video and animation to encourage them to purchase products (see increased sales) it will also have the facility to translate the product into the nations language by clicking on their flag. Product benefits will then be fully understood by the potential clients and lead to a wider customer base. It would be potentially harder without an IMMP because we would have to visit the potential clients one at a time (increased cost) and use the services of a translator – however this method would guarantee they speak to us and don’t throw the DVD in a bin which is a potential problem. All in all it could be an effective method for gaining new international clients. 8
