Finding manufacturing growth through exports

Many successful UK businesses are now finding that exporting goods and services to countries outside of the EU is a valuable route to growth. And with the electorate in France and Greece voting against austerity measures in favour of even more reckless government borrowing, the advice from commentators is not to bother trying to export to these countries until things are more stable.

Over the last few years, the BRICs countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China) have experienced exponential growth and UK businesses selling to these countries are experiencing an increase in sales. And we can help you to stake you claim to some of the opportunities out there!

But, how do you go about exporting if you’ve no experience? Where do you start?

If you are one of the many businesses around who believe that you could open up a successful trade route outside of the EU but simply do not know where to start, don’t worry. You’re not on your own. What you need is help from a business that understands exporting and all that it entails;

Market research – where are the opportunities?

Advertising and marketing – localising your sales approach for the region you’re selling into

Intellectual properties – how do you stop overseas competitors copying your products?

Funding

Shipping and the surrounding legislation

Procedures and paperwork

Avoiding the pitfalls

Getting paid

You will have the benefit of working with an agency that understands selling overseas and benefit from the help of dedicated export marketing support that can produce desk research, or arrange fact finding visits, either with you, or on your behalf.

So, if you’re new to exporting or have tried it and feel that you need help, then give us call. You can explain your ideas and if you think we can help you then we’ll be only too pleased to meet up.

The markets are there for those that want to find them!
