Is your website fulfilling its potential in global markets?
Does your website bring you enough enquiries or leads from international customers?
Does your business have an effective online strategy for boosting overseas sales?
Is your site optimised for international search engines?
Have you considered different online channels to new consumers?
If the answer to any of these questions is no, you need to consider attending this Digital Trade Advice clinic.
UKTI can help businesses ensure they are ready to trade internationally. Recognising the specific needs of digital and ecommerce businesses, UKTI has introduced advisers with specialist digital knowledge and experience to enhance your skills.
An E-Commerce Adviser will focus on your existing online channels, but also profiling emarketplace opportunities around the world. We are all aware of Amazon, ebay, Etsy and Not on the High Street…but what about Newegg, Trade Me, and Mercado Libre?
UKTI is working with these emarketplaces to fully understand their click-base and matching it to the products of UK companies. The purpose? To sell GREAT Britain to consumers around the globe.
