.wanna go global? Go local + Statistics


While it may sound mutually exclusive, in reality, these two approaches support one another.

When I talk to people, especially from tech companies, they often claim that they want to sell globally.

In their minds, it means targeting the whole world (or at least huge regions) at once.

They use English, and in IT, everybody speaks English anyway ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง

However, what do you think? Are your potential customers more likely to talk to you in English or in their mother tongue?

Well, research by Common Sense Advisoryย found that 74% of consumers are more likely to purchase a product in their own language.

Additionally, a study from McKinsey found that companies that localize their sales messages see a 37% increase in customer conversion rates.
