10 steps to export

Any business can export products or services but the process can be complex and challenging and success is far from guaranteed. Yet, when it is approached with careful deliberation, exporting can be a rewarding growth strategy for any business.

Whether you are a sole trade offering consulting services or manage a 500-person manufacturing facility, exporting offers you opportunities for growth, increased sales and diversified markets. But a marketable product or service is only the beginning.  Exporting takes time and effort. It also takes resources and a strong commitment to compete beyond your current borders.

If you are focused and committed you must first assess your readiness to enter the global marketplace. Follow our 10 Steps guide to help you to achieve success in exporting.
