We will examine the difference between pricing decisions taken within the domestic context, compared to those within the international sphere. We will examine the various factors that influence international pricing decisions: product factors, firm-level factors, environmental factors, and market factors.

We will take a brief look at the implications of the Internet for pricing across global markets and also finish off with a brief analysis of some the practicalities involved in implementing an international pricing strategy: terms of sale and payment and also the specifics of export financing.

    Unit 8: International Marketing Mix – Place

    In this unit we will consider the ‘place’ element of the international marketing mix. Those of you already familiar with the marketing mix from your previous studies will realise that place relates to the distribution and logistics decisions taken by the firm. In this unit we will consider external determinants that can influence the organisation when deciding upon the most appropriate channel. We will consider the structure of international market channels and also the management and control of those distribution channels.

    The practicalities of cross-border logistics will also be examined and the implications of the Internet for international distribution. The unit will finish with an examination of the unauthorised distribution channels commonly known as ‘grey marketing’ or ‘parallel importing’ and their effects upon the international marketing strategy of the organisation.

    In this unit we shall:

    Examine the key characteristics of place as a constituent of the international marketing mix
    Assess the external factors that influence the distribution and logistical decisions adopted by the organisation
    Consider channel structure, together with the management and control of those distribution channels
    Examine the practicalities of cross-border logistics and also consider the implications of the Internet on international distribution
    Investigate the effects of the ‘grey market’ on the international distribution strategy of the organisation.
    On completion of this unit you will be able to:

    Explain the key characteristics and the external factors that shape the formulation of distribution and logistics within the international marketing strategy of an organisation
    Identify the most appropriate channel structure and justify the necessary management and control measures needed
    Evaluate the practicalities of cross-border logistics and assess the impact of the Internet on international pricing strategies and also the effects of parallel imports
