5 Reasons to Consider Exporting

April 18, 2017
1. Access 
Today, improvements in trade finance, the Internet, and trade agreements have dramatically increased access to markets worldwide.  
2. 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. 
3. Profitability 
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. 
4. Competitive Advantage 
The United States is known throughout the world for high quality, innovative goods and services, customer service, and sound business practices. 
5. 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.
