International trade can open up a world of opportunities for businesses of all sizes. Did you know that 95% of the world’s consumers live outside of the United States?
Advancements in information technology and logistics allow most any business access to the global marketplace. If you have a Website, global consumers are checking you out. Interestingly, many U.S. businesses ignore international inquiries because of their perception of risk. Don’t ignore opportunity.
