Advancements in tech have transformed the way we communicate, work, and live. Thanks to these advancements, we’ve seen the global village develop and thrive. Naturally, in response to these transformations, marketers are finding new, creative ways to leave their mark!

On Benjamin Shapiro’s MarTech Podcast, we heard from Dan Radu, Founder and president of Macro, talk about the future skillset of the global marketer (check out our recap of that discussion). In that episode of the podcast, Globalization in Technology Marketing, Dan also shared his vision of how businesses can thrive in a global marketplace Which steps does that vision entail? Read on to find out!

1. Cherish the Global Marketplace

Think growth beyond any borders! Companies that expand internationally can stay competitive by entering emerging markets. For example, BRICS countries may evolve into an even bigger market, and it's going to be very important for companies to have a footprint in these areas.

Some companies open regional offices, but most successful multinational organizations support global partners with privacy regulations in mind.

2. Global Teams, Local Expertise

 Localization is key. Partner with multilingual marketing experts to tailor campaigns and messages for specific regions.

For instance, Macro has dedicated partner marketing advisors all across the world: North America (NA), Latin America (LATAM), Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), and Asia-Pacific (APAC).3

3. Build a Cohesive Global Workforce

All successful business leaders foster a standardized workflow across all departments and teams, emphasizing clear communication and a shared company vision.

However, one should be considerate of different time zones, regional holidays, and other specifics. Accommodate everybody globally in your culture!

4. Agile Marketing Operations

Agile methodologies in marketing operations have been used for many years, especially in global companies, because they lay the foundations for cross-functional teams to easily collaborate, iterate, and quickly adapt to changes.

Increased customer and workforce satisfaction, faster time-to-market and improved campaign performance are among the most important benefits of agile marketing practices. Thank you for this terrific idea, IT professionals!

5. Master Remote Teamwork

Communication is critical, but so is bonding!   Regular meetings, fun activities to build connections across borders and in-person interactions, where possible, solidify team spirit.

To illustrate, Macro cultivates personal connections and organizes in-person team-building activities whenever possible.

Don't forget!

The digital age did open all doors to a global marketplace, but navigating this new frontier requires a wise strategic approach. Standardize operations, maintain a shared vision, and accommodate regional needs.

Also, never brush aside the needs, well-being, and potential of people—both customers and employees. Empathy is always a winning strategy!
