Task

The Australian market is limited by its industries, size and location. The majority of Australian businesses are small and medium sized companies (SMEs) who increasingly are looking overseas to expand their marketing activities and to grow their business. Indonesia is one of the countries on which a growing number of Australian businesses are focussing their international marketing activities on, as Indonesia has a growing economy and due to the fact that the Australian Government is developing even stronger trade relationships with its neighbouring partner.

Although international marketing can provide a range of opportunities for Australian business, it is also challenging as each country consists of distinctive market environments and consumers. For this assignment, you will take on the role as an International Marketing Consultant who assists an Australian company to achieve a better understanding of the Indonesian market. In assignment 1, you will need to analyse your client’s existing approach to segmentation, targeting and positioning (STP), and develop and justify a STP approach for the Indonesian market.

Please note: Assignment 1 is linked to assignment 2 and you will have to focus on
the same business case for assignment 2!
