International Marketing and Advertising

The idea that I have for this week’s assignment in regards to international advertising is to compare and/or contrast NIVEA, the skincare products from Germany. However, the comparison will be of NIVEA USA and NIVEA Indonesia. The sources that I take are from the following websites:
