International business – deliver it, via the internet. For any ambitious company, the internet is the most important route to international business.  Successful online marketing is not only about your website.  It’s about your company’s “online footprint” – ensuring your business and your team are well-referenced across the internet, that your message is primed for buyers and that you make it easy for them to research your company and buy your products or services.

Consider this:

  • If you want to break into new international markets, your website will be your main calling card for prospective customers
  • How you position your products or services online will determine whether you secure meetings with buyers and get on their procurement lists
  • Online marketing and communications can enable you to reach decision-makers more cost- effectively than traditional means
  • Many high-growth companies lack online marketing and communications skills to maximise business growth in overseas markets

Not every business can sell online, but every business should support the sales and marketing process online.
