During the webinar they gave us an insight into the international success of their brand and how it was accomplished.

Establish new and niche markets – entering new markets allows your brand to get a strong foothold in new territory meaning you business can grow faster than if it was an already established market.

Create strategic alliances – this will allow your company to grow and become part of already established networks allowing new opportunities to open up for you.

Expand the product range – creating new products is a good way of ensuring customer loyalty as well as showing off a fresh look to the brand .

New office suites – having a fresh and new area to work can help motivate production.

Trade missions – the key point here is networking; it will provide you with an opportunity to discuss topics with other UK exporters who are at the same stage as you.
