Determine your sales strategy abroad with a Market Mapping Tour

Determine your sales strategy abroad with a Market Mapping Tour

Trip

If you haven't done business before in a specific country, working with us always begins with a Market Mapping Tour. You come over and our local specialist will guide you around, arrange meetings with retailers or end-users and useful organisations. During these two days you learn more about the market and together we will draft a market entry plan.

Meet with end-users and people in the distribution chain

During a Market Mapping Tour the focus is on getting new insights. If you have retail products, we bring you to retailers and consumers. For business-to-business offerings we let you meet prospective end-users or advisors. If you want to sell online, we bring you into contact with fulfilment platforms and marketing agencies. We will accompany you to the meetings and help you analyse the meetings.

We customise the program around your needs, but typically it would look like this:

Day 1:

  • Showing you the business environment and highlighting local trends in your industry.
  • Getting an in-depth understanding of your offering and unique selling points.
  • Review of your product and marketing materials: are they suitable for the country?
  • Visiting consumers, end-users or retailers, and having a look at the competition.
Day 2:

  • Meeting with parties who can play a role in the distribution. Please note this is for orientation only, in a later stage we can do a full distributor search.
  • Defining a strategy for you how to enter the market.
  • Preparing next steps together.

Our local specialist will have a call with you in advance to learn more about your plans and to see what program would give you the most insights. We can also extend the tour with more days or combine it with a trade show visit.

All logistics are taken care of

We design the tour together with you, based on your preferences, and help you with hotel bookings.  We pick you up from the airport or your hotel, guide you around and take care of translations, which is very necessary in countries like France, Italy, Turkey, Iran, China and Japan. We also help you with your visa application if necessary and with local transportation.

Give yourself a head start!

We see visiting the country as an essential start for any type of market entry that we support you in. We always advice to invest in a market only if you have been there personally and tested your product or service. Only then you can make a choice for finding an agent or distributor, online export through e-commerce, or hiring us as your country manager.
