Replay of our first sessions

Export Talks #1 make sure your company is ready for foreign market

After an in-depth review of the differences between intra and extra-European export, and of the regulatory specifics of exporting goods vs services, Vincent Repay explains why the principle of free movement of services in the EU is not universally applicable. He also goes over the different stages of the export process from a logistics point of view. There is also a focus on your financial needs.

Export Talks #2 How to select your markets?

In addition to answering these key questions, Vincent Repay presents essential digital tools for performing market studies (Google Market, Finder, etc.) and to better capture foreign markets (via Credendo, MADB, etc.).

And lastly, he gives you the tools you need to identify how relevant new markets are, based on an analysis of the risks each of them inherently carries (political risks, risks related to payment, etc.).

Export Talks #3: what are the distribution channels for your exports?

What kind of market coverage are you aiming for? What are the characteristics of your product or service? How many orders do you expect to send? In addition, does the nature of your product or service require your presence in the market, and in what form: direct or indirect? Answers to all of these questions in this replay.

Language: english

Export Talks #4: are your products and services ready for sale?

Packaging, product composition, the customs duties applicable to the products, the habits and cultural profiles of the foreign consumers, etc.: in this replay, we list all of the elements which may need to be adapted and explore concrete examples of how to do so. To export your services, you have to be in a position that ensures that don’t have to meet legal and tax requirements which are incompatible with them. Our expert differentiates between intellectual and other services and describe the precautions required when they are exported.

The benefits of having an intermediary in the foreign market are also covered.

Export Talks #5: set your sales prices abroad

Will providing my service abroad require an advertising campaign? How extensive? Will I need the help of experts to establish files with financial institutions? Will I need to hire staff on-site? Identify your potential costs based on the answers to these questions in this webinar!
