There is a global trade expert in your market and another as close as your email or your phone.
The costs to export your products and services abroad are constantly decreasing, making it easier for small- and medium-sized companies to reach consumers across the globe. Whether you’re a small clothing retailer looking to find niche markets in Asia, or a consumer electronics producer looking to tap into an emerging market in South America, exporting abroad is a cost-effective way to quickly improve your bottom line amidst slow growth in many domestic markets.
It may seem daunting for small- and medium-sized firms to go global,but there are many resources that are locally available that can help firms export abroad. Local development offices in states, cities, and regions, along with elected officials and local chamber’s of commerce all have experts on hand to answer any questions and deal with any reservations you may have about exporting. In addition, there is a regular schedule of trade missions, fairs, webinars, and workshops that can be used as resources to help small and medium sized firms access new markets.
Upcoming events include:

CEO and Founder, Frank Lavin, gave Export Now’s first pilot presentation to the American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai Wednesday afternoon at the AmCham Shanghai offices. Over 65 attendees participated in the hour and a half event, while approximately 50 more had to be turned away for capacity reasons.
Lavin was accompanied by Justine Chao, Senior Manager for International Business at TMall. The presentation began by focusing on growing prominence of China’s e-commerce market, drawing attention to TMall as the preeminent B2C e-commerce platform in China.
The difficulties that companies in the United States experience entering this growing market are due to barriers such as the need for specialized fulfillment operations and warehouse support, not to mention the complications of language and culture.
Export Now handles these trade barriers and more for American businesses, allowing access to over 400 million internet users in China. By making it possible for major American corporations and family businesses alike to double their potential customers, the Export Now solution offers a practical strategy to help businesses grow even during tough economic times.
