We take a hands-on approach, working closely with you to provide as much or as little support as you need.
We can certainly give you plenty of upfront information and best practice advice. But we’ll then also be happy to act on that information, working with you to formulate the most appropriate plan for your specific business needs and then going out to explore and develop opportunities for overseas sales for you. What’s more, we do this on a freelance basis, so the costs are manageable and focused.
Our interactions with the Department of International Trade (DIT) and the Institute of Export enable you to have the best possible information to hand when it comes to developing export sales in your chosen markets. And you don’t need to worry if you haven’t yet determined your market destination, because we can also help you decide which market would be best for your products.
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.
