Exporting to Expand Sales

If you have a website to sell your products or services, you have the potential to reach markets beyond your immediate borders! In this globalized world, every business should be prepared to offer products or services to international markets. One of the best ways to begin is to take the Export Assessment at export.gov. Many of these questions will guide you into areas of the export.gov website where you can obtain more information on exporting. You will receive a score once you complete the assessment, which will help you to assess your export readiness, as well as an identification of areas your business needs to strengthen to improve its export activities.
