My Part of the blog/report – Summary of other region (how it differs from US)
Overall feel of discussion: How is Mc Donald’s different from in Moscow compared to the US?
What about in other regions?
Compare and contrast how a global organization in this industry manages its brand globally and locally.
The report will critically analyze a global strategic communication campaign and
compare and contrast how the brand (Mc Donald’s) was marketed in the U.S. and in the Moscow region. Assess whether the firm successfully adapted its global strategy and messages for local audiences and will provide recommendations for the brand based on your own evaluation as well as the best-practice recommendations of other scholars and practitioners.
The research will explore a firms’ advertising, social media, and PR efforts in
the U.S. and at least one country in the assigned region to assess how the
brand is promoted in the different markets, and how the firm addresses the
issues of global vs. local branding, and how (or if) different cultures are
addressed by the same brand.
