Export? Why?…… Top 5 reasons why you should Export
‘Export? that’s for the big companies right?'
So there are many excuses companies use against Exporting, some valid, some nonsense. What I want to do, is outline the key benefits of exporting your products:
- Increase your revenue-By exporting to new countries, you have access to a much larger target market who want to buy your product. An increase in sales has to be positive. Get it right, and watch your bottom line grow too.
- Spread your risk-Why put all of your eggs in one basket? diversify your revenue streams from multiple countries. If economic turmoil erupts, the downturn can be balanced out by strong sales in another region.
- Improve productivity-Research from higher education institutes have made the link between businesses that export and increased productivity of their staff. Employees are more motivated by the global competitiveness.
- Lower unit costs-The more you sell, the more you will need to produce. Purchasing goods and materials in larger quantities will help you negotiate better discounts. This will lower your cost per unit and increase your profit margin.
- Help improve the economy-Whilst you won’t turn it around and become a national hero, You will be doing your bit to help reduce the trade deficit. The more businesses we can get exporting the better it will be for our domestic situation.
Ultimately, not every business wants to go global. However if you’re committed to improving your business, your staff and your country! Then these points may just help you to take action.
