WHY YOU SHOULD LOCALIZE YOUR WEBSITE
Your company’s website serves as your 24/7 salesperson. And as former German Chancellor Willy Brandt famously said, “If I’m selling to you, I speak your language. If I’m buying, dann müssen Sie Deutsch sprechen.” That’s true online, too. In fact, a 2014 Common Sense Advisory (CSA) survey reported that over 56% of consumers prioritized finding information in their own language over price!
Yet building a website that seamlessly blends a country’s language and culture to create a more relevant experience involves more than just a great translation. It requires a complex process known as localization.
THE SHIFTING RETAIL LANDSCAPE - AND HOW MARKETERS SHOULD REACT
There’s no denying that COVID-19 has further disrupted retail. From extended store closings to economic uncertainty, consumers have grown wary of in-person shopping. Attracting and keeping new customers has become one of the biggest hurdles, with retention rates that are 82% lower for customers acquired during the pandemic.
Brick-and-mortar stores, which were already struggling to keep up with ecommerce, face even tougher competition. Whether it’s due to safety or convenience, 83% of consumers said they plan to continue shopping the same amount online—or even more—after the pandemic.
HOW CULTURAL COMPETENCE REDUCES COSTS FOR MEDICARE AND MEDICAID RECIPIENTS
As Medicare and Medicaid increasingly move away from fee-for-service payments, healthcare systems and providers must adapt to alternative models that include financial risk. However, those costs aren’t spread out evenly among the patient population. Just 5% of Medicaid recipients make up 54% of the total Medicaid expenditure, for example.
While this subset of beneficiaries, known as “super-utilizers”, are a heterogeneous group, the elderly and ethnic minorities of all ages are more likely to fall into this category.

English may be the world’s lingua franca, but not all business professionals can speak it.

We live in an era where Facebook knows you better than your mother. Yet marketers still struggle to collect and track data—let alone make meaningful decisions with it. From data silos to an ever-expanding list of metrics to keep track of, it’s no surprise that only a small minority of marketers currently feel able to offer their customer data-driven brand experiences.
