An Introduction for Small Businesses to the Global Market:
Blue Paper and Podcast by Promotional Products Retailer, 4imprint
(OSHKOSH, Wis.) – Small and medium-sized businesses considering expanding markets, take note: The latest Blue Paper™ and podcast from promotional products retailer 4imprint, Going global: A primer for small businesses presents an introduction on when, how and what to consider before pursuing international business.
According to sources cited in 4imprint’s version of a white paper, the potential of overseas markets – through exporting, importing or outsourcing – remains largely untapped. In fact, 95 percent of customers and 73 percent of the world’s purchasing power lie outside of the U.S. and, as the world’s economies continue to recover from a recession, business growth will continue on an upward trend over the next ten years. Experts say that 87 percent of this growth will occur everywhere BUT the U.S.
“The decision to expand globally isn’t an easy one,” shares Greg Ebel, vice president of sales and marketing for 4imprint. “It can, however, be one that results in substantial growth and brand visibility. If you’re considering this strategy, we hope this paper offers you an introduction of things to consider. ”
This Blue Paper and podcast covers a wide variety of basic information for going global from a multitude of experts, including:
• How to determine whether or to go global;
• Legal considerations before expanding or selling internationally;
• Tips for selecting a sustainable global market;
• Considerations for global branding;
• And more!
