What are your own company’s strengths, which countries/markets are you looking at? Which type of export approach is best suited to the goals of your company? And how do you ensure that your efforts will lead to the right financial result?
A good strategy is the basis
For us a good export strategy falls apart in three questions:
- What will be the product or service that you want to sell abroad? Is your offering unique, better or (much) cheaper? What differentiates you as an exporter? And is your company ready for international expansion?
- Which country do you want to go to? If you haven't done market research, you can do market quick scans to quickly get a feel of the chances of your product in various countries. Or if you sell a tangible product, you can use world trade analytics.
- What will be your approach? For medium sized and smaller companies we strongly believe that finding a local partner is the best way to enter a market with minimal risk. Your approach also determines the budget you need to be successful.
