The world is full of people who are not Americans. Be sure not to treat them like they are. Like politics, all marketing is local. Just because your direct mail campaign worked in Texas, do not assume it will work in Toronto. Although there may be a European Union, there is no such thing as a "European." Pick your target, focus on one country, and do your homework. Customers need to be able to return products locally or at least believe there are services available in their country.
