Having researched the various markets and after establishing your businesses skills and gaps now it’s time to pull this together into an analysis that will help you make your final decision.
To do this we suggest a weighting table that will look at your business skills in terms of a potential market. This is an internal analysis of your business skills. It will assist in the decision-making process in terms of each market and will highlight both training and resource needs. Use this to be sure you are ready for your chosen international market. Planning is key to making a success of your new export market.
