Why Oban International has published a book
Oban has published a book called Going Global: How to improve digital marketing performance in any market on the planet, which is designed to be a practical guide for businesses looking to grow internationally using digital marketing techniques.
Why did Oban write a book?
The last decade or so has seen tremendous economic and political upheaval. From the financial crisis of 2007-2008, to the UK’s decision to leave the EU, to the Covid-19 pandemic which continues today, large-scale events have created a turbulent environment for businesses. Yet despite – or perhaps because of – those events, there are more opportunities than ever before for businesses to expand internationally – increasing both their reach and their margins.
Since 2002, Oban International has helped over 250 businesses of all shapes and sizes – from challenger brands to category leaders – achieve massive international expansion in diverse markets around the world. We’ve used these accumulated insights – across multiple sectors, channels and markets – to compile our book, Going Global.
Who should read Going Global?
The book is aimed at businesses that are at a relatively early stage of international expansion and who are looking to scale and grow faster using digital marketing techniques. That said, anyone who owns or works for a business looking to expand internationally will likely find Going Global a useful and practical resource. Readers of the book – business owners, marketing directors, digital marketing professionals – will learn how to identify the biggest international opportunities and avoid the costliest mistakes.
How can Going Global help businesses?
Written in an accessible and easy-to-read style, the book will help readers understand:
- How to research, select and enter new markets
- The key elements of international SEO, paid media and social media success
- Why you need to localise, not translate, your content
- How link-building and working with influencers varies internationally
- CRO and UX techniques you can use across markets
- Payment methods around the world
- International ecommerce fulfilment challenges and how to overcome them
- How to set global KPIs and how to measure success
- Key mistakes to avoid
Business expansion into other countries doesn’t just happen – it often comes with significant challenges and risks. Catering to an international customer base and creating multicultural and multilingual brand awareness across borders adds a level of complexity to most aspects of doing business. Going Global is designed to help brands navigate this complexity.
