Import Export Company In West Africa - Import Export Agents in Africa
Some businesses begin with export marketing included in
their corporate plan; others slip gradually into exporting,
perhaps having been approached by an overseas buyer with
whom a profitable business relationship emerges, and it
subsequently becomes clear that other exporting avenues
might also prove profitable. The most likely first venues for marketing abroad might
well be those arising from unsolicited enquiries from potential
foreign customers, and information obtained from trade publications,
newspapers and specialist export publications.
Exports can obviously increase markets for one's goods
many times over, but for the newcomer exporting can also
present numerous complications and learning difficulties.
Though the temptation might exist, the newcomer is usually
advised to gradually enter the export field, perhaps starting
with one overseas market and gradually increasing the range
of destinations in which one's products and services are

group selling facilities, fact finding services, organised
trips abroad, payments & shipping advice, import export documentation advice,
and so on.
It is advisable to join one of the larger Chambers of Commerce,
such as those in London and Birmingham, as opposed to Chambers
of Trade which though generally available in all main towns,
are usually composed of retailers with no experience or
interest in exporting. Many Chambers of Commerce hold regular
meetings at which members can benefit from the experience
and advice of fellow members and longer-established exporters.
Additionally, many Chambers hold regular seminars on matters
related to exporting, some aimed at relative beginners and
therefore offering a more than useful insight into the ins
and outs of this particular marketing method.
All of the major banks offer free literature and guidance
to intending and established exporters, and many have specialist
advisers available to answer whatever questions you might
have in your beginning days as an exporter, as well as problems
you might encounter as you begin venturing into new and
