Introduction Doing business is fast becoming global in today’s world due to technology, transportation and communication opportunities. In this fast moving economy and globally connected world, there always exists the prospect of discovering an unfulfilled customer need and then marketing a product to satisfy those needs.

Before making the decision to go abroad, successful companies benefit from proper planning to help visualize any external and uncontrollable factors that may arise. (Cateora, Graham, Gilly, 2013) Global marketing is the process of adjusting a company 's marketing strategies to adapt to conditions in other countries. When a company speaks of ‘going global’, it really means they are moving internationally, outside the home country. One may ask if a global marketing strategy is really necessary at all in a business. If you were to develop an ad campaign in the United States, do you think the same campaign would be just as effective in China? That is why it is important to create a global marketing strategy for a company no matter what the size. (Delaney, 2015) This paper explores the steps a company can take to help them with the international planning process, it looks at promotional strategies, and how innovation plays a part in market adaptation.

Major decisions need to be made in marketing on whether to go abroad, which market to enter, how to enter, what kind of marketing
