Description:

Do you know 96 percent of consumers live outside of United States? You are missing a lot of sales opportunities if you are not exporting. Are you thinking about starting exporting, but don’t know where to start? Come join this 90-minute program, which will give you the basic understanding of how exporting works.

Learning objective:

    • Gain basic knowledge about the export process, INCOTERM, payment and much more
    • Learn how to look for clients in the global market.
    • Determine if your business is ready for exporting and/ or have your mindset prepared.

A few things to think about:

    • In 2005-09, U.S. small and midsized manufacturers that exported grew by 37 percent, while non-exporting companies saw a seven percent decrease in growth.
    • In 2016, worldwide retail e-commerce sales totaled $1.86 trillion, and they’re projected to grow to $4.48 trillion by 2021.
    • Smaller size can be synonymous with global scale. Companies no longer need to scale to trade; they need to trade to scale.
