Your customer base just “went viral.”
Why not add a few billion people to your customer base?
More than 70 percent of the world’s purchasing power is located outside of the United States. People in other countries want to buy what you’re selling.
And consider another fact: your competitors are already moving in that direction.
We Make Selling Overseas Easy
Why Consider Exporting?
“Exporting can be profitable for businesses of all sizes. Your competitors are increasing their global market share, and you can, too.”
- Access. Today, improvements in trade finance, the Internet, and trade agreements have dramatically increased access to markets worldwide.
- Demand. More than 70 percent of the world’s purchasing power is located outside of the United States. Your competitors are increasing their global market share, and you can too.
- Profitability for Businesses of All Sizes. Exporting can be profitable for businesses of all sizes. On average, sales grow faster, more jobs are created, and employees earn more than in non-exporting firms.
- Competitive Advantage. The United States is known throughout the world for high quality, innovative goods and services, customer service, and sound business practices.
- Risk Mitigation. Most companies that export have an easier time riding out fluctuations in the U.S. economy and are more likely to stay in business.
The Economic Impact of Exporting
- U.S. exports of goods and services totaled $2.1 trillion in 2011. Exports are a growing and substantial part of the U.S. economy, accounting for 13.8 percent of our nation’s GDP.
- In 2008, 6.8 million U.S. jobs were supported by U.S. manufactured exports.
- According to a study published by the Institute for International Economics, U.S. companies that export not only grow faster, but are nearly 8.5 percent less likely to go out of business than non-exporting companies.
Smaller Companies Have Vast Untapped Export Potential
According to the Small Business Administration, small businesses have generated the majority of net new jobs over the past decade. Helping these firms grow by selling internationally is important to our economy.
- Less than one percent of America’s 30 million companies export – a percentage that is significantly lower than all other developed countries. And of U.S. companies that do export, 58 percent export to only one country. Many businesses could benefit from learning more about these international opportunities and resources available to help.
- Small and medium-sized companies account for 98 percent of U.S. exporters, but represent less than one-third of the known export value of U.S. goods’ exports. (In 2010, there were over 293,000 identified U.S. exporters, 269,269 of which were small or medium-sized).
