HOW TO EXTEND YOUR GLOBAL REACH IN A SHRINKING WORLD

Now is not the time for business as usual.
To survive and even grow in uncertain times, companies need to be creative and agile in searching out new opportunities around the world

Small businesses have lots of advantages over big firms – they know their customers better, they’re more flexible, and they can customize their offerings quickly. With technology and communication advances, those small-business advantages can extend beyond any border

Consider seven keyways to extend your global reach with DutyFreeZone.com B2C (Retail) and Duty-Free-Zone.com B2B (Wholesale).

Expand Your View of the World. According to 2007 Census data, 97 percent of U.S. exporters were small- and medium-size companies with less than 500 employees. Consider whether you are reaching every customer you can. Remember 75 percent of the world’s buying power is outside the U.S. Are you ignoring a large number of potential users of your goods or services?

Think Big. You need to think beyond the horizon. Thinking big may mean finding new markets or developing new products. Or it may mean that you want to one day become a big business. Many huge companies started as small businesses with big ideas – launching into new markets and using new distribution models that were unheard of in their industries beforehand. But whatever your goals, a small business should never limit itself by thinking small.
