One of the most widely held beliefs about advertising is based on one remark made approximately one hundred years ago, by a famous merchant named John Wanamaker (1838-1922). He is credited with the saying: “Half the money I spend on advertising is wasted; the trouble is I don’t know which half”.
If we take a moment and look back at the last ten to fifteen years, we can easily observe the complex process of evolution that concerns marketing strategies, tools and techniques.

This would translate into companies facing obstacles when working with people and organizations across nations. Fortunately, this is not the case for today’s business language.
