Website Globilization Webinar

  1. 1. Website Globalization WebinarThis article was originally published on the Acclaro blog.Category: Marketing, Websites, Localization TipsPicture this: A native Spanish speaker justmoved into a new house in Phoenix and itspretty clear that theyre going to need a newkitchen faucet. Theyre not quite sure where thenearest home improvement store is, andanyway, theyre used to buying items online.So they start searching the web for kitchenfaucets. Only, they dont type "kitchen faucet"into Google; they type "grifería."The top search results are fairly useless: a bunch of faucet companies based in Spain, a Deltafaucet product sheet PDF that takes a long time to load and doesnt have what theyre lookingfor anyway. The right-hand column is also empty of relevant results, just an ad that says,"¿BuscasGriferias? ConsigueMejoresResultados con"Why such lack of targeted, relevant results for this proactive, ready-to-buy consumer? Perhapsthe faucet industry isnt aware that... Non-native English speakers are four times more likely to buy products offered and documented in their own languages. Even for those who can read English, more than 60% prefer buying from sites in their own language. 65.5% of English-proficient consumers still favor local-language products.And, more importantly, that the Hispanic market in the U.S. is poised to reach $1 trillion by theend of this year. Thats a lot of faucets!Dont fall into the habit of ignoring foreign language markets. Even companies that sell productsand services to domestic customers should consider launching a localized website as part oftheir marketing and sales growth strategy.Page 1: Website Globalization Webinar Copyright © Acclaro 2012
