Mark brings a refreshing perspective to marketing with this book. It is a much-needed resource for those engaged in communications, demonstrating that one size does not fit all. NX Marketing shows that it is time to move away from old and outdated stereotypes when labelling consumers or audiences who do not fit the so-called mainstream. It is a must-read for any marketing expert with its engaging writing style.

In my over 20 years in the language industry, I have seen many approaches to global communication and marketing. Native Experience Marketing offers a fresh, insightful, and highly practical perspective that is essential for anyone looking to navigate the complex but rewarding world of intercultural business and communication. It is a testament to the power of language and culture in shaping local and global interactions and a guidebook for building more inclusive, effective, and successful in-language communication strategies.

As an international business consultant, I’m continuously impressed by marketing frameworks that put the customer at the center. Native Experience (NX) Marketing does just that by emphasizing cultural insights and authentic engagement with diverse audiences. Rather than taking a one-size-fits-all approach, NX acknowledges the importance of nuanced, inclusive communication that resonates across languages and cultures. This mindset shift is exactly what global organizations need to build trust and loyalty with customers worldwide. I appreciate that NX recognizes that effective marketing is not about you but about deeply understanding buyer perspectives. This customer-centric approach is the future of marketing in our interconnected world.

Mark’s concept of NATIVE is so beautifully natural, but at the same time so missed today in our fast-paced and standardized way of interacting with each other. To turn messaging into communication, you need to acknowledge, appreciate and respect your audience. In Native Experience Marketing, Mark shows us how we can all take it to yet another level, turning communication into building authentic relationships by appreciating everyone’s native lived experience.
