The export Action Plan has helped us focus in on market where we need to develop our knowledge. It has helped reinforce the need to pay attention to all potential markets, not just the “big fish”
It gave me the opportunity to make a clear plan with clear goals and processes and structure. I had not structured my export strategy like this before.
It helps you and forces you to sharpen your focus and develop a detailed and realistic export plan. The tool also brings important aspects of exporting that may be overseen or forgotten by the inexperienced exporter.
Being prepared beforehand will not only save you money but also ensure that your export strategy is sound and successful.
It’s the third member of our team! Starting the export process is like launching a new business and we needed to understand what we had to do – and how it could be done.
The Export Action Plans questions and suggestions made so much sense – listing everything we needed to think about and how to actually go about capitalising on overseas opportunities.
I was impressed how the plan took me through the practical stages and kept me focused and on track. It also gave me clarity on key issues such as documentation and capital outlay.
As a result of the plan, I made changes for the better which included changing the packaging of our products into different languages and learning valuable things about shipment.
It’s a great way to organise what steps we need to take, think about things we had not yet considered, and work out what we need to research.
By getting things in order, we can efficiently work through what needs to be done. We can then just focus on getting orders, being confident we can deliver to our customers.
