IKEA Expansion plan - don't forget the meatballs!

IKEA Expansion plan - don't forget the meatballs!

I am sure I am not alone in describing the pain, anguish and untold stress of being dragged through one of IKEA’s large factory-sized stores, looking for that one remaining household item to complete the chic décor of the lounge. However, anyone that has had the somewhat unpleasant experience of shopping in IKEA may have realised that it is not always as straightforward as that!

Business Studies Year 13 revision Day 29 - Global Marketing

On day 29 of the Year 13 Recap we discuss why and how a firm can change its marketing strategy to aid the effectiveness of international expansion into unknown markets.

When a business expands internationally into a new market the focus is placed on the benefits that this will generate for that firm.

Business Studies Year 13 revision Day 28 - Assessing International Expansion

On day 28 of the Year 13 Recap we assess the motives behind international expansion from an individual firm’s perspective.

Often the focus can be on a firm’s desire to expand internationally to sell a broader customer base that has not been exposed to the firm’s products and services.

Business Studies Year 13 revision Day 27 - Conditions that prompt trade
