Welcome to the second extract in my series from my book ‘Grow Fast, Grow Global: 6 steps to unstoppable international growth in the digital age’. Here’s an extract from the Introduction to show you too can do it!
Global growth used to be only for the biggest multinationals, but it’s just not like that anymore. Barriers to entry are down and the world is open for business of all types, including yours. You no longer need to staff offices all over the globe, pay commission to expensive local agents, or even to travel the world touting your wares at expos and trade fairs. To have an international customer base, you only need to find a way to sell your goods or services online.
The internet has opened the doors of international trade to everyone. Regardless of the size of your business or your experience of running a business, the process is just the same for everyone. Of course, the specific implementation may be different in each case, but the fundamentals of solid, sustainable global growth are universal, and it is my 6-step method to achieve this that I share with you in this book. This innovative, groundbreaking method I have developed is based on the experience I have had working in the UK with one of the world’s leading trade promotion agencies, showing companies how to sell more to customers around the world by using digital channels. Some companies that followed my method have achieved 10x (a tenfold) increase in online revenue, or even more. The UK is one of the most advanced digital economies in the world, so you can learn the tips and tricks of what works and then apply them in your own country.
If you are reading this, thinking there is no way you can get your product or service to all corners of the globe or you are too small to achieve that kind of growth, then you are wrong. You can, and I’m going to show you exactly what you need to do. If you don’t have the time or resources to sort out going digital just now, then a competitor will probably beat you to it.
The time for action is now.
Selling online needs to be an integral part of your business plan for the next three years and beyond. This really is something that you have to invest in, or you will risk being left behind and losing out, both in your home country and in other countries around the world. If you get this right, you will have access to literally millions of new customers without even leaving your desk, and achieve growth by bringing your products and services to the world. On top of this, you will sell at a much higher margin and be able to target your ideal customers more easily.
I truly believe that any company can achieve global growth with my system. Whether you sell a good or service, sell to businesses or direct to consumers, are an established company or a brand new start-up, there is absolutely no reason why you can’t be selling online or getting online leads from customers overseas.
