Let the world know you are open for business online.
Website internationalization is a term used to describe the process companies go through to make their websites more effective at reaching potential customers and business partners in other countries. It is the most common-sense approach for small and mid-sized companies looking to enhance their international marketing and sales efforts.
It begins with optimizing your website for search engines, in order to identify and solve technical website issues that would prevent international buyers from finding and transacting with you online.
There are three phases of website work that businesses should grow through for international sales:
- Internationalization: website is culturally neutral, high-performing regardless of bandwidth, and structured to facilitate translation.
- Regionalization: website has specifically designed landing pages to facilitate cultural and language more focused on a particular region of the world, but not a specific country. Market research and analytics help define and refine market opportunities to pursue.
- Localization: modifying a company’s website to specifically focus on a particular country. Localization of a website in another country must be done correctly to be effective and demands professional assistance.
