However, the author states that global marketing also has certain disadvantages – it exposes the business structure and strategies of the companies and it also prevents the companies from controlling the outsourced activity. It also contributes to the loss of future talent. The author writes about outsourcing to different countries versus outsourcing to local (domestic) business.
