EIGHTYDOTS and Khoros Find 75% of International Brands Have Inconsistent Brand Messaging or Digital Presence

MUNICH (16 February 2021) — EIGHTYDOTS, a Munich-based digital marketing agency, and Khoros, a global leader in digital-first customer engagement software, today released a new whitepaper, “Transforming Marketing for International Brands: How to Create More Impact with Less Efforts,” that unpacks the challenges and solutions every brand needs to execute an impactful digital marketing strategy on a global scale.

“Managing a global marketing strategy is challenging -- paired with pandemic-induced shifts to the entire marketing landscape, it can seem near impossible. As fellow marketers, we understand the struggle brands are facing,” said Cara Dolence, business development director at Khoros. “In collaboration with EIGHTYDOTS, we’re excited to share this new whitepaper that offers brands the keys to unlocking a cohesive digital marketing strategy with global impact.”

After analysing the top markets of 75 international brands, EIGHTYDOTS’ and Khoros’ research revealed that 75% of them don’t have a consistent brand message or digital presence across their markets. This hinders a brand’s ability to compete in a digital-first world. Konstantin Goczol, brand director at EIGHTYDOTS, says, “Inconsistency is not necessarily wrong, it’s inefficient. Now more than ever, it’s critical that brands have an efficient way of working and an effective marketing strategy. Otherwise, some industries risk missing out on reaching up to 98% of their potential customers.”

Together, EIGHTYDOTS and Khoros brought their experience working with thousands of the world’s leading brands to craft a set of recommended strategies for brands to achieve more impactful marketing worldwide. In the whitepaper, EIGHTYDOTS and Khoros share:

Five key challenges all international brands face when scaling their marketing initiatives;

New research that dives deeper into the reasoning behind these challenges; and

How to implement international marketing strategies to achieve global and local impact, more efficiently and effectively.
