Wal Mart Marketing Strategy
Posted by Anonymous on

Hello, I am a MBA student in Brazil and I have to write a marketing plan about a company. I chose the Wal Mart due to the fact it is one of the largest and well-known companies in the US and because we also have Wal Mart here in Brazil. I would like to find out deeper information about their marketing strategy, since I will be comparing it to the strategy used in Brazil. I need to describe the changes that they have done and analyze how marketing has been used by Wal Mart in Brazil and in the U.S as well as analyse what has been done through out the years by Wal Mart in both countries to achieve the results set by the company.
I am having difficulties in finding out the information to write about it, because we do not have much written regarding Wal Mart here in Brazil. Can anyone help me, please? I really appreciate it.

However, one of the best sources with the most information and links (which all seem to work still) is a Marketing Profs Know-How Exchange questions entitled "Wal-Mart Marketing Strategy through Time"
I also suggest you Google for ideas, and check out this book
