For Your Next Cruise, Consider Cargo Ship Travel
July 25th, 2014 by Cindy Wendland
Cruises are a popular way to vacation with wonderful destinations. Disney even takes travelers to a private island for a unique experience. Another novel way to travel at sea is on a cargo ship. We recently ordered Olaf (the snowman from the movie Frozen) online and the arrival date was six weeks in the future.
Does Cultural Branding Beat Strategy?
July 24th, 2014 by Cindy Wendland
What impact do cultural differences have on the success of a product? Some people feel that culture beats strategy every time. No matter how good your strategy is in your market, if you haven’t modified your product to cater to the culture, the product will not succeed. This is the case not just if you are crossing the oceans to other countries, but also right here at home.
