In this Marketing Cloudcast episode of How to be a Great Global Marketer, we welcome VP & CMO, Asia Pacific Marketing at Salesforce Michael Peachey. He reminds us that tactics dictate strategy, that ideas can be scalable, and when something is successful, you share it with international counterparts.

And what does Michael think is one of the biggest challenges that face global marketers today?

Using this data effectively can help scale marketing operations. Because even as a company grows, it can still approach marketing campaigns with an innovation mindset. Two important tenets of marketing for a global brand is that a brand needs recognition across languages and borders, but specific campaigns need to be localized to serve the customers in their geographic region. That's why a customer-centric marketing strategy is an agile strategy.

By innovating fast — seeding and growing great ideas — you'll be able to support another challenge of global marketing, working across different time zones, geographies, and regions. Creating a consistent global identity that also supports localization is incredibly rewarding and can net big returns.
