Why should my company go abroad? Motives to start exporting or importing
Your business has different motives for becoming more international, to start exporting or importing goods or services. In order to succeed in an internationalisation process it is appropriate to explain to oneself which reasons are the most important ones for you and your company:
Through new knowledge and experiences, carrying out surveys and market analysis “on the spot” or through an exchange of technologies and methods your company will perform more efficiently, on its domestic market as well. Your clients, competitors and suppliers are probably already globally active. You have to be updated in order not to lose pace nor market shares!
When it comes to leadership and talent supply, many enterprises consider of great interest watching the global scene. International trade leads to the development of new skills of your personnel. Besides, your colleagues will learn new business manners, new cultures and develop their language skills.
Your company will turn more profitable through larger sales volumes and/or higher margins (generated by higher prices or lower costs). You will get the opportunity to find new or alternative suppliers. The chances to find new business partners and investors will increase.
Other decisive motives
There are many other reasons for starting an internationalisation process – those may focus on your business, family or be completely personal.
Spending time in new surroundings, get inspiration and motivation in the search of new challenges are, at the end of the day, probably the most decisive reasons.
