EATING A DIGITAL ELEPHANT
Take advantage of online sales channels to open up export revenue
Being local is not your advantage anymore. To grow and expand you have to seek new opportunities outside the boundaries of your region and your country.
The lure is irresistible, but approaching new huge markets takes courage, knowledge and patience. Our presenter, Paul Grey, will explain how selling online in big markets like the USA is very different from here.
He’ll highlight some of the challenges and traps to avoid, and share examples of how ExportX harnesses the power of e-commerce to build brand and export revenue for New Zealand products in the USA and Europe.
