Abstract

The aim of this study is to provide a new insight into the “cause-effect” chain that “traditional” research on international promotional standardisation has neglected. A theory will be used as a conceptual base to formulate the research framework. This will identify key environmental and internal strategic factors as drivers and consequences of MNCs subsidiaries and Agencies’ promotional standardisation decision making which, in turn affects the level of standardisation of these promotional elements – Advertising Strategy, Sales Promotion and the impact of the Internet on Promotion.
This framework allowed the researcher to formulate further hypotheses and the design of a questionnaire to test these hypotheses and carry out the necessary empirical research and collection of primary data. 300 British MNC’s were compared across the UK, France and Germany.
The model supports the notion that there are antecedents that drive promotional standardisation. An additional contribution is that the model also looks at the impact of standardisation on promotion more fully than before and adds a valuable contribution in Internet Promotion. The study found that, on average, managers reported that Standardised Advertising Strategy and Sales Promotion is fairly high across these markets in the EU with Internet Promotion being the highest.
