Exporting is great. But we understand that making the first move to explore your export sales potential or to evaluate a new market can also be daunting. That’s why we’re here to support, advise and help you every step of the way – tailoring the way we work to suit your specific business needs.
With a proven track record of identifying new markets, developing distribution networks and devising successful export sales strategies, I am Export helps you reap the benefits while minimising the risks.
The company’s principal Simon Dexter-Jones has visited – and in many instances, lived in – more than 45 countries around the world, with a track record of successful sales in many different sectors.
A keen traveller both for work and leisure, Simon is driven by a desire to put SMEs on the map (quite literally) by working with them to achieve sustainable and, more importantly, profitable sales overseas.
We can work in-house or remotely with you, dedicating initial time to understanding your business and ascertaining the best potential channels and markets for your products or services. Working to an agreed timescale, we’ll then start helping you to seek out potential distributors, agents or direct customers.
We’re also able to visit the target markets for you. We can meet with the contacts and work out an agreed strategy that allows for the development of a mutually beneficial, long-term relationship between you – so you can achieve those all-important sales revenues in a sustainable way. This allows you to free up your time to look after the day-to-day running of your business and saves you from having to employ a full-time member of staff at such an early stage of export development.
You’ll find that working with I am Export is very cost-effective. We charge in the way that best suits your business – either a fixed daily rate, which is dependent on your business profile, or a reduced rate with additional commission on the achieved sales element.
