Can you sell beamers in Bavaria?

“I dinged my Beamer” means you put a dent in your BMW to a North American. To a German, it means you are trying to somehow ring your overhead projector like a bell. Even in Munich, which is home to BMW, overhead projectors are known as Beamers. As you can see, product names can quickly get mixed up across different cultures. And that means your target audiences are probably using different terms in their search engines to find what they’re looking for – or what you’re offering.

Thumbs-up

Here’s another example. Try using a thumbs-up image on your home page. Works great in most of Europe and North America where it means “Way to go.” Of course, you just lost all hope of doing business in parts of Greece, Thailand and Afghanistan, because in those countries its meaning is much more insulting and crude (hint: starts with F and ends with U).

Adapting your messaging to be found around the globe

If you’re looking to sell your products in different countries and markets, most of which will have languages and values that differs from your home market, you’ll have to adapt your messaging so that your product:

1. resonates with your target audience; and

2. so that your website can be found easily online, regardless of geography

keywords are now king

In the marketing world we’ve all heard the maxim, “content is king.” But in the world of web-based content marketing, this is only partially true. After all, not using the right keywords would be like putting a king on a throne without a crown. Crowns make kings stand out from the crowd.

And with the right keywords, your content can rise up the ranks to stand out from the thousands of other search results for a given product or topic you’re trying to promote. In short: “Keywords are king.” And that’s something we’ve mastered. Internationally.
