1. PESTLE analysisPESTLE分析
Clarity is a British jewelry brand whose products are made in the UK and its raw materials are supplied from all over the world, for example, its diamonds are from Thailand. Clarity is now ready to take the United States as a target country for its brand internationalization. The author use Hofstede's cultural dimensions theory to analyze whether the United States an appropriate target market for Clarity (Hofstede, 2001). From the perspective of power distance, both the United Kingdom and the United States belong to countries with lower power indexes (Johnson et al., 2015). Considering uncertainty avoidance, peoples of the two countries are less willing to evade uncertainty and prefer innovation (Lesch, Rau and Choi, 2016). From an individualism/collectivism perspective, people of both countries pursue individual values more that their pursuit of collective values. People in both countries advocate expressing their views and safeguarding their legitimate rights and interests, while maintaining personal privacy in life. People of both countries like to pursue a personalized lifestyle (Johnson et al., 2015). Judging from masculinity / femininity perspective, both cultures are characterized by masculinity, they are not afraid of competition and they are hungry for career and academic success, they are willing to work hard to make things better (Marcén, Molina and Morales, 2017). From the perspective of long-term / short-term orientation, people in both countries are more concerned about the present feelings and they will not worry too much about the future (Shahzad, Xiu and Shahbaz, 2017). From the above analysis it can be seen that the United Kingdom and the United States is basically the same in their cultures, to implement international brand strategy in the United States, Clarity will not encounter too many problems of cultural differences.
Clarity是一個英國珠寶品牌，其產品在英國制造，其原材料來自世界各地，例如，其鉆石來自泰國。現在，Clarity已準備好將美國作為其品牌國際化的目標國家。作者使用Hofstede的文化維度理論來分析美國是否適合Clarity的目標市場（Hofstede，2001）。從權力距離的角度來看，英國和美國都屬于權力指數較低的國家（Johnson et al。，2015）。考慮到避免不確定性，兩國人民不太愿意躲避不確定性并傾向于創新（Lesch，Rau和Choi，2016）。從個人主義/集體主義的角度來看，兩國人民追求的是個人價值觀，而不是追求集體價值觀。兩國人民都主張表達自己的觀點，維護自己的合法權益，同時維護個人生活隱私。兩國人都喜歡追求個性化的生活方式（Johnson et al。，2015）。從男性氣質/女性氣質的角度來看，兩種文化都以男性氣質為特征，他們不怕競爭，他們渴望事業和學業成功，他們愿意努力使事情變得更好（Marcén，Molina和Morales，2017）。從長期/短期取向的角度來看，兩國人民更關注現在的感受，他們不會過分擔心未來（Shahzad，Xiu和Shahbaz，2017）。從以上分析可以看出，英國和美國的文化基本相同，在美國實施國際品牌戰略，Clarity不會遇到太多的文化差異問題。
2. Benefits that Clarity’s international brand strategy in the United States will bring
The United States is the most important market in the world (Johnson et al., 2015). What the benefits that Clarity's choice of the US as a target market will bring for the value creation of the Clarity brand? The author is based on COMET model to analyze the benefits (Steenkamp, 2017). From the customer preference point of view, the U.S. consumer has a higher degree of acceptance of foreign products and there is no xenophobic tendency (Lesch, Rau and Choi, 2016). The spending power of the U.S. consumers is relatively strong, they are more receptive to good quality and creative products (Marcén, Molina and Morales, 2017). In terms of organizational benefits, the United States is the most important market with the most discerning consumers and the most powerful competitors in the world (Shahzad, Xiu and Shahbaz, 2017), if Clarity can be successfully accepted by consumers in the U.S., it is very important to establish Clarity's global competitiveness and corporate identity. From the marketing benefits point of view, the U.S. media has global influence, which helps to promote Clarity's global exposure. From economics scale point of view, the United States is still the world's largest economy and the GDP growth rate is still among the advanced countries in the world (Shahzad, Xiu and Shahbaz, 2017). At the same time, the United States is still the most industrialized country in the world. Clarity's most raw materials can be guaranteed in the United States. Finally, considering from transnational innovation, cultures from all over the world converge in the U.S., where designers from all over the world exchange ideas to bring innovative inspiration to Clarity's designers, and American consumers love personalized disruptive innovations, this also gives Clarity’s design personnel more design power.
3. Five Forces Model analysis
From the point of view of its existing rivalry, despite there are formidable competitors in the U.S. market, there has not yet been a pure British jewelry brand in the market (Quach and Thaichon, 2017). In terms of bargaining power of suppliers, the order amount is not high, so the bargaining power is low. From the perspective of bargaining power of buyers, consumers are less able to bargain for such products due to the lack of pure British accessories. Considering from threat of new entrants, products from Japan, France and other countries have their characteristics (Koo and Im, 2017), but these are largely different from Clarity’s product design style, so they are less attractive for consumers who like British style. Judging from threat of substitutes, other manufacturers who produce British style products have less experienced designers than what Clarity have, and by contrast, what Clarity produces has the most British style. 4. International brand strategy for Clarity
It can be seen from the above analysis that as a British brand, Clarity’s brand culture and image are relatively more easily to be welcomed by consumers in the United States than its rivals of other countries. Thus Clarity can use standardization strategy, its brand image, symbol, slogan, marketing mix, etc. should be consistent in the U.S. as that of in the UK. Clarity also can use some adapted strategies aiming at American consumers, including: for American consumers, it provides some new packaging, hires advertising stars that American consumers are familiar with, adjusts the price of the product based on American consumers’ spending power, and so on.
