More than 70% of the world’s purchasing power is located outside of the United States. Your competitors are increasing their global market share, and we can help you do it too.
Why consider exporting?
Access – The internet and improvements in trade finance and trade agreements have dramatically increased access to markets worldwide
Demand – More than 70% of the world’s purchasing power is located in international markets
Profitability – Exporting can be profitable for any-sized business. On average, sales grow faster, more jobs are created, and employees earn more than in non-exporting firms
Competitive Advantage – The United States is known throughout the world for high quality, innovative goods and services, customer service, and sound business practices
Risk Mitigation – Most companies that export have an easier time riding out fluctuations in the U.S. economy and are more likely to stay in business
