Best of the Blog – January/February 2016


The new Open to Export blog has been live for a month and there’s already been a flurry of activity and new content.

We kicked off the blog with the build-up, live tweets and report of the Export Action Plan final – a great event in which 10 great first-time exporters competed for the £3000 prize on offer. Charles Farris were the eventual winners and you can read a case study about them.

We also hosted a live ‘Ask the Experts’ Twitter Q&A following our webinar on the legal pitfalls of exporting. Answering questions were @JamieHillUK @VirtuosoIP and @ElizabethMWard1, who were later joined by @ChamberInt_Team and @ChamberInt_Tim.

The blog has also been opened up for contributions and we’ve so far had guest blogs about internationalising your SEO strategy for export, the double-edged sword of economic growth in emerging markets like Chile, tips for how best to negotiate with your international partners, and build-up to CEBiT 2016 – the world’s leading technology show for which Open to Export users are being given complimentary 5 day tickets.

The blog is a great avenue for new and existing contributors to publish new content for the Open to Export community.
