Going international is worth it. Take a look at some of the key reasons to start exporting.
Going global can actually mediate risk
Many business owners think that they won’t be able to count on
international revenue. But selling outside the U.S. is like diversifying
your portfolio — it makes your business less
vulnerable to shifts in the U.S. market.
You’ll likely make more money
Businesses in the U.S. export trillions of dollars in goods every year and foreign buyers love U.S. goods. If you find the right market for your product there’s plenty of profit to be made.
Trading internationally supports local economy
The U.S. economy needs more local entrepreneurs to sell goods. There’s no doubt about that. However, selling internationally can mean major success for you. And that means more opportunity for you to create new jobs and invest revenue domestically.
Exporting can put you ahead of the competition
According to the U.S. Commercial Service less than one percent of U.S. businesses currently sell internationally — and 58% of those businesses export to only one country. Reaching new markets can give you the edge you’ve been looking for.
It’s not as difficult as you think
While the paperwork and regulations involved in international trade can seem overwhelming, they don’t have to be. There are a number of experts and resources on hand to help you find international success. If you’re interested in getting started FedEx is invested in helping you get ahead.
