Research your export markets

Thorough research is essential before you start exporting. Research helps you identify the best overseas opportunities, understand how to sell into new markets abroad and avoid costly mistakes.

Much of the export information you need is already available. You are likely to need to carry out your own custom research as well, including visiting promising markets.
