++ Why export consulting? ++

 

Globalization is surly one of the keywords of the new millenium. More and more medium sized and even small companies have to face the challenges of international competition and are forced to sell their product in Europe or worldwide in order to assure and stabilize their sales volumes. Un external export consultant may help you to support, complete and take some of the load off your existing export department. From our own professional background and from many talks with collegues and costumers we know that systematic identification and prospection of new export costumers is often negligected in the busy day-to-day activities. New export costumers are often found more or less by chance during trade fairs or via incoming enquiries. Thus international business development is one of the departments of a company which is particulary suitable for outsourcing. Export consultants with excellent research and communication skills may help you to promote your products and to open new distribution channels especially in those foreign markets where your company is yet not represented. In best case the only you have to do afterwards is to supply your new export customers.

++ Which firms benefit most from export consulting? ++

 

Export consulting is especially recommended for small and medium sized companies whose international business und export department is still in the process of development. In this cases an external export consultant may be a budget affordable alternative or a sensible completion to costly participations on international trade fairs with often uncertain results and to the hiring of additional export staff. Export consulting services are able to support and complete in multiple ways the existing export sales activities of your company according to your individual requirements.

++ What do we need from you? ++

 

You know your products and your market better than we do. The more information we get from you regarding quality advantages of your products and distribution channels you already use in your existing markets, the more targeted and efficient will be our research work and the higher will be chances for selling successfully your products in new export markets.

++ Is there a guarantee for success? ++

 

No. After having received by phone or e-mail all necessary details regarding your export project we will browse our available data sources and check up what we can do for you. We will give you as timely as possible our personal estimate regarding success prospects of your project. We only wil do the job if at least we can assure tha we will be able to find a sufficient number of importers in your target country and sector who might be interested in your products. But with this, we can't guarantee anyway that you actually will sell your products. Sales successes in foreign markets depend to some extend on factors like price, innovation level and quality of your products as well as on strength of competition and dealer mentalities, factors that are partly out of our influence. In our previous business experience we have initiated and successfully concluded a large number of export prospection projects, but just not all projects. There is a certain remaining investment risk that we don't want to conceil.
