The first thing you will need to do is to find the right markets for your business. The best way to do this is by searching for countries on Google.com and googling “best global markets”. You can then look at the websites of various countries to see what they offer in terms of trade agreements, and tax rates, and an exploration of any potential language barriers. Once you have decided which market you would like to export your goods into, it’s time to figure out what product(s) you are going to sell there. To do this, you will need to assess the demand for your product(s) in the market.
First, you should determine how much of your product will be required in the market. To do this, you need to find out what percentage of people in the country speak a language that is close to your language of business and how many people speak that language. Then, you should research how many people within that group are wealthy enough to afford your products and services. This will give you a good idea of what the demand for your product(s) is.
Once you have decided on your market and product(s) to sell, you will need to figure out how you’re going to sell them there. The three primary methods for selling products overseas are: a relationship with an agent/distributor in the country, exporting through an online store, and developing an in-country website. Whichever of these methods you choose, you should make sure to do your research on the country, including any import and/or export requirements.
Once you have found your best global market access, determined what product(s) to sell, and figured out how you are going to sell them there, it’s time to develop a plan for how you are going to deliver the product. If you are going to use an agent/distributor to deliver your product, you should make sure that he/she is reliable and has a good track record.
Also, you should know what your payment terms are going to be, which can be tricky if the agent/distributor has a different set of payment terms than you do. You may want to consider offering your product on consignment at first so that you can get a better understanding of how well it will sell there.
If you plan on selling your product(s) online, you will need to have a good website where people will be able to purchase your goods and services. You should also be sure that the product information is consistent with the country’s language as it would be seen in that country. This means, for example, if you were going to sell shoes in France, you should use the French language on your website and on any product labels.
You should also be sure to include all kinds of information about your product(s) like what it is and how it is used, in the target country. You will also need to consider shipping rates and handling fees as these can begin to add up quickly if you are selling across multiple countries. Once you have developed these aspects of your plan, there are a few other things that need to be taken into account before going overseas.
