What It's About:

Cross-culture marketing and selling doesn’t just mean adjusting the marketing collateral to reflect a multi-cultural element. In fact, all aspects of the buyers’ journey must be addressed: initial interest, negotiating, customer service and of course, design. In this session, learn tactics that you can put into practice immediately, gain a greater awareness and respect for cultural differences and most importantly, understand how to conduct business in different scenarios throughout the buying process.

What You'll Learn:

  • Examine your own cultural identity and determine the ways you may be programmed to interpret and analyze behavior.
  • Define some key cultural dimensions that play an integral part in sales and communication, and recognize cultural differences in verbal and non-verbal communication.
  • Identify the challenges of selling, marketing and providing customer service to a multi-cultural home buyer and learn strategies to overcome them.
  • Discuss the perceptions various cultures may have of U.S. Americans, and learn the best practices for sales, negotiation and communication with these clients.
