ABSTRACT With increasing globalization and international trade, a number of international brands are entering into India which is one of the fastest growing and highly competitive markets in the world. Though, most of the global firms failed to understand the needs of Indian consumers as well as the market characteristics but there are a few of them who have been successful in positioning their brands into the Indian market because they attempt to understand well the needs of target group before introducing a brand into the market.

Nowadays the percentage of SMEs to the whole number of all enterprises is constantly rising, playing a decisive role in EU economic development and competitiveness: in the EU they constitute about 98% of businesses (more that 20 million SME’s), providing two thirds of the total employment and 80% of new created jobs. This number in Poland is high as well. According to surveys Enterprises give out more than 70 percent of all GDP, and 72 percent of them were SMEs, which are 99.9% of all enterprises.

...Market entry Strategy Glitter is a local company which is currently dealing with fashion accessories, wedding planning and advertising. The company wants increasing its sales by introducing new and modified products on the market. Executives constantly look at new market entry opportunities as a way to generating rapid growth, diversifying their portfolios, and preempting competition—and, occasionally, secretly satisfying their entrepreneurial spirit. There are various ways in which a company can enter in to market. No one market strategy works for all markets. In the case of Glitter, I suggest following strategies are the main entry options open to them. Organic Growth Organic growth strategy involves strengthening your company using its own energy and resources. This is the process of business expansion due to increasing overall customer base, increased output per customer or representative, new sales, or any combination of the above, as opposed to mergers and acquisitions. This approach to company growth is slower than others, but it has relatively low up-front costs, making it an attractive option for small-business owners as Glitter who want to expand their companies but don’t have large amounts of liquid capital. Developing your company’s strengths through organic growth can make you a stronger competitor in your industry. For instance, a company that continually devotes its profits to improving its quality-control department offers increasing value to......

...Buddhism all have substantial followings in Indonesia, but for the vast majority of Indonesians, religion is synonymous with Islam. As the nation with the world's largest Moslem population, Indonesian Moslems have been able to forge a national variation of the religion emphasizing the concept of rukun or societal and interpersonal harmony atthe familial, community, and societal level. While rukun is universally recognized as a principle of Islam, Indonesians have blended it with East Asian concepts of harmony, conflict avoidance, and surface tranquillity to give it a greater emphasis than practiced anywhere else in the Moslem world. c. Customs/ traditions/ manners/ habits: foods, drinks, clothing, personal hygiene, myths and superstitions. i. Foods As in the rest of Asia, Indonesian food is heavily based on rice, supplemented by vegetables, a little bit of fish and once in a while, meat and eggs. Indonesian cuisine is known for its combination of contrasting flavors and textures, its influences having originated in all corners of the world. Each culinary art of foreign origin can be distinguished in Indonesian cooking, yet each is blended creatively with the islands’ own cooking secrets. Each province or area has its own cuisine, which varies in the method of cooking and the ingredients used. The Javanese cuisine is probably the most palatable to the general taste and usually consists of vegetables, soybeans, beef and chicken. The......

And Information need not any occasion so when people want it they try to get it, but there is a problem that comes first that in our country there are every types of people from every class and if we can see them then we will find it out that most of the people belong to middle class and lower class and they don’t get any Information for cost.

...Sustainable Export Marketing Strategy Fit and Performance Athina Zeriti, Matthew J. Robson, Stavroula Spyropoulou, and Constantinos N. Leonidou ABSTRACT Despite the growing global importance o f sustainability issues, scant research has examined marketing strategy sustain­ ability issues in international settings. Although significant prior work has examined drivers and performance conse­ quences o f adaptation/standardization o f marketing strategies in international markets, researchers have yet to apply this avenue o f inquiry to sustainable marketing strategies. Building on contingency theory and the concept o f strategic fit, the authors develop a model o f drivers o f sustainable export marketing strategy adaptation and explore the circum­ stances under which such a strategy affects export performance. Using a sample o f U.K. exporters, they find that vari­ ous macro- and microenvironmental factors are responsible for sustainable export marketing strategy adaptation, which shapes the nature o f sustainable export marketing strategy fit and its export venture performance outcomes. The results indicate that sustainable export marketing strategy adaptation is the outcome o f the differences between home and export markets in terms o f economic and technological conditions, competitive intensity, customer characteristics, and stakeholder pressures. Moreover, the performance relevance o f sustainable export marketing strategy adaptation requires adequate fit......

Market Entry Strategy

...A market entry strategy is to plan the a method of delivering goods or services to a target market and distributing them there. when importing or exporting services, it refers to establishing and managing contracts in a foreign country.Market entry is more than examining a set of economic data. Successful market entry begins with assessing feasibility, factors such as the trends, the culture, the nature of the competition and the opportunity. There are a variety of ways in which organizations can enter foreign markets. The three main ways are by direct or indirect export or production in a foreign country. Exporting methods include direct or indirect export. In direct exporting the organization may use an agent, distributor, or overseas subsidiary, or act via a Government agency. In effect, the Grain Marketing Board in Zimbabwe, being commercialized but still having Government control, is a Government agency. The Government, via the Board, are the only permitted maize exporters. Bodies like the Horticultural Crops Development Authority (HCDA) in Kenya may be merely a promotional body, dealing with advertising, information flows and so on, or it may be active in exporting itself, particularly giving approval (like HCDA does) to all export documents. In direct exporting the major problem is that of market information. The exporter's task is to choose a market, find a representative or agent, set up the physical distribution and documentation, promote and price the product.......
