One of the best opportunities for many companies to increase sales is by exporting their products or services. While entering the global marketplace is sometimes a surprisingly simple process, there also can be significant obstacles to overcome.
“It’s important to create a marketing strategy for developing global business,” advises Terri Batch, an international trade consultant and president of Batch Global Strategies in Los Angeles. “This plan also will serve as a guide if the going gets rough internationally. When problems or obstacles arise, companies can look back to the strategy they developed in order to refocus and move forward.”
