  • Step 1

Am I ready to export?
There are many opportunities to grow your business by exporting. Make the move to Canada. With the right preparation you reduce the risks.

  • Step 2

Make an export plan
An export plan helps you to weigh the advantages and disadvantages against each other. Map out the risks and possible rewards and work on a plan with a clear goal.

  • Step 3

Determine your ideal market
Identifying your ideal market is perhaps the most important part of developing the right export strategy. Three factors determine the so-called market shape: the number of suppliers, the number of customers and the question whether the traded products are equal.

  • Step 4

Do business with big companies
There are new opportunities thanks to technology and the way we do business with each other. Relatively smaller SMEs can thus still be competitive on the global trading stage.

  • Step 5

Develop an export marketing strategy
To be successful in another country, thorough knowledge of the local market is important. Market research plus a marketing strategy that is in line with the local culture.

  • Step 6

Enter the market
In this phase you will actually implement the plan. You use the market entry strategy for this. A number of steps in which all preparations come together.

  • Step 7

Delivering your product or service
Sometimes international shipping can turn out to be a little more complicated than you thought. By working this out well in advance in your plan, this step will also be easy.

  • Step 8

Financing export
Financing based on hard figures. Make sure that all information is in a well-founded financial plan so that you can continue to pre-finance.

  • Step 9

Managing the sales unit
Selling in another country requires a strong sales force. We help you set up marketing & sales networks so that exports can continue and grow.

If you want to be successful as an entrepreneur in Canada, you will have to ensure that the sales and marketing activities are aligned with the country and/or states you are going to focus on.
