STRATEGIC ADVISORY & BUSINESS PLANNING SERVICES
Entering into the export market through an existing business may seem like an obvious way to increase your current revenue. In many cases, it is a viable means of expanding a business and generating greater income. However, it is important to consider the logistics, timing and practicalities before jumping into the unknown.
Exporting can extend your market, boost your turnover and prevent you having too great a dependence on your local-based customers. But it isn’t always an easy option. Entering or expanding presence in a new market involves complex choices, ranging from the mode of entry to appropriate investment levels to local organisational structure design.
Starting to export poses a whole new set of challenges, from identifying promising markets and customers to ensuring that you can fulfill your export contracts. Developing new export markets takes time and money.
