Today's topic. Today we will learn how National Geographic made use of experiential marketing while launching its brand in an emerging country like Turkey, which experiential marketing tactics it employed, how it immersed its customers with the product itself, and what market results it achieved within a short span of time. In addition, we will see how National Geographic employed animal spirits and social information concepts as used by Ambler and Styles in their book titled The Silk Road to International Marketing: Profit and Passion in Global Business.
