Export expectations opening overseas
BRANCHING out into new markets and crossing borders, whether European expansion or going global, is a huge step to take in business and requires thorough research and planning.
As a business, it is imperative you have UK success. If you’re not succeeding at home, where you are likely to be familiar with trends, cultures and policies, then trying to expand internationally could prove difficult.
According to the British Chamber of Commerce Quarterly Economic Survey, fewer companies from both the manufacturing and service sectors report growth in export sales in Q3 2015. Clearly more needs to be done to encourage and boost UK exports.
When crossing borders in business, offering an International Toll Free (ITF) or local in-country phone number is one of the best ways to expand your reach in overseas markets, increase sales and boost enquiries.
The strength of the UK pound can make British products and services seem expensive in the international marketplace. To encourage overseas buyers, offering a free call or appearing to be local is a great start.
To help businesses dip their toes in the water and wade across the waves, we offer International Toll Free numbers for almost every country in the world. And if it’s a ‘local’ number you need for certain areas/districts or major cities, we can fulfil that too.
