You are now successfully exporting to your first market. Now begin to build on this success and grow your exports.
You will now have built up a good relationship with the overseas market team and keeping up to date on buyer trends and external factors impacting these trends will enable you to stay competitive.
Factors to consider in your plans to scale exports:
Do you have the necessary resources both in terms of staff and finance to meet the demand of a new market?
Do you have the manufacturing, packaging, logistics, linguistic capacity?
Have you considered your carbon footprint; requirements of buyers?
4. Sustainable Growth
How will this impact your current financial standing? Will it strengthen or dilute your position in the market?
5. Adjacent Markets
Is there potential in the adjacent markets where buying patterns, pricing and local regulations may be similar?
